Kuching Christmas Parade

Last evening a Christmas parade was held in Kuching. It was organized by the Methodist Church and the Kuching Minister Fellowship was also invited. In total including branches of churches, there were 27 churches participating in the parade. This got to be the largest Christmas parade so far in Kuching. The organizer expected about 4,000 Christians to attend, but from the turn out at least 5,000 Christians participated in the event.

This year's theme was "Peace in Christ", and it was a fitting team because we all wanted peace for our nation. For the past two years many events have taken place that affected the rights of Christians in this nation. It appears that many of these rights are slowly taken away. It was indeed a show of unity among the Christians in this city and beyond by the number of Christians coming to celebrate the birth of our Savior Jesus. He came to die for our sins, and to redeem us and give us eternal life. Regardless of denominations, many churches participated in this parade because it is important to be in one body of Christ. We must all join hands to fight the enemies outside, let's stand as One in Christ Jesus.

Praise God that although it is the rainy season now there was no rain last evening. During the afternoon it rained, and the weather was cleared for the parade! Hallelujah! Praise God!
