The Fourth Week of Advent...

Early morning view from the Tao Fung Mountain on which the
 Lutheran Theological Seminary in Hong Kong is located.
Not many people get a view like this from their workplace!

We celebrated graduation for two Lao, one Cambodian, two Mainland Chinese students...
and one very proud American student... who happens to be
our pastor's wife at Union Church!
After many many work hours in front of computers, books, and lecture notes,
it was wonderful to get out into God's creation...
and smell the flowers! (yes- many
flowers blooming in Hong Kong
in December)
Sunday Wayne had the privilege of baptising four young people.
the newly baptised were given gifts wrapped in red
 - the color of celebration and the Holy Spirit!
I think it's cool to see Chinese characters written
on Wayne's forehead when he's celebrating communion!
The youngest member of the Tin Yiu Life congregation - ready for
her first Christmas.
"That's what baptism into the life of Jesus means... 
Each of us is raised into a light-filled world by our Father so that we can see where we're going on our new grace-sovereign country." 
[Romans 6:3-5 The Message remix]
