Pre-Gawai Celebration at FBC

Our Church celebrated pre-Gawai 2014 last evening at our Church.  It was organized by our Iban Church to usher in this year Gawai.  Gawai is actually the harvest festival of the natives of Sarawak, and it is usually treated as the main festival by our natives like the Iban, Bidayuh, etc.

Our Iban folks have been gracious and they organized this celebration to celebrate with our English and Chinese congregations.  Beside our members from our main Church, Iban Church has also invited about a 100 members from Sebuyau and Engsengi about two and half hours drive from Kuching.  Beside the various performances, our Iban folks treated us to a sumptous meal, all foods cooked by themselves.  They even cooked the "Lakcheong", Cantonese for sausages Chinese style.  They are good cooks!

All in about 300 people came to celebrate.  Thank God for a eventful and meaningful evening!
