Overwhelming Response Christmas Parade
On 15th Dec 2012 multitudes of Christians in Kuching attended the annual Christmas parade organized by the Methodist church here.  The turnout was overwhelming, at least 10,000 people joined this parade!  Praise and thank God for this overwhelming response!  Christians are touched by the Holy Spirit and we all come together to show unity among ourselves.  Indeed it was heart warming to witness, Methodist, Roman Catholics, Anglicans, Baptists, and others joined together to parade and show our unity in Christ Jesus.

I was also there and from my observation the participants were about three times the numbers last year.  The locals watching this parade appeared to be more than the previous year.  We also had some foreigners witnessing the parade.  Couple Lars and Pia Nielsen from Denmark said, “We didn’t expect to see something of this magnitude during our visit to Kuching,”

Thank God for the good weather too.  There was no rain through out the parade although it is rainy season now.
