Carol & Maggie’s Sharing – 10th Alpha Banquet

Our Alpha course has stopped for 2 years already. And it is God’s time to move on… Alpha Course 2011 !

When Pastor Leung invited me and Maggie to be in charge of the 10th Alpha Banquet, I accepted without any hesitation. Why?  On the morning before we met for the first meeting, ,I kept thinking about the Alpha Banquet.  I said to myself,  I will volunteer to be the in-charge this year, but I want to partner with Maggie, (my dearest sister in the Lord, because we always shared the same vision and direction).  God is great! When Pastor Leung asked me and Maggie if we wanted to try, I knew that God has put his will inside our hearts!

Challenges started as soon as we went to site-visit.  The venue was a bit smaller that we had to re-arrange the whole table-setting.  ( So thankful to God that I had worked in Ikea and Maggie is a designer that our experience helped a lot).

Thanks God ! When we invited brothers and sisters to help, all of them said “ yes “ at once! The most touching thing was when we just asked them to sing a few simple songs, it turned out that Steven has put new lyrics to the music and had added much new feelings to the songs! I and Maggie wanted to have some desserts, Fiona (Heung) suggested to add some decoration to it. (Maggie’s design talent would never be wasted! )  I invited May May to perform some magic for fun, I had never thought that she blended in some gospel message in the show!

Even before the banquet started, I deeply realized that God’s word is true,
“ And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. “ Romans 8:28

On 28 Aug, the big day has come!

When we were setting up the site, we could see that all the brothers and sisters were doing their part and encouraging each other.  I am so thankful that God has made everyone of us part of his work.  Every segment in the banquet was very smooth.  Even the simple ice-breaking games at the beginning could unexpectedly arouse a very joyful atmosphere in the whole venue.

All the new friends were very blessed by the good food and the games. Not only were the new comers being blessed, I believe that every one of us who was involved could feel the blessing of God was with us.

I especially want to thank God the Holy Spirit for His presence and guidance!

I and Maggie would like to express our gratitude to the following people,

Pastor Leung, for trusting us, and for your encouragement and support !

Steven, for your countless tenderness, your gentle reminders, your practical help and your support !

Fiona, for your charming desserts and everything was so carefully-arranged!

Big Brother Chi ( Maggie’s Daddy ),  for your great food :P

Ronald, Mrs. Fu and Kit for your powerful testimonies!

All the team members of 10th Alpha Course, thank you for your commitment in thministry.

Without your commitment on that day, there will be no Alpha students today !

After the banquet that evening, we received an email of encouragement from Pastor Leung .

Thank you Pastor Leung for giving us Pslam 133 : 1 , since this was exactly what we felt and gained from the process of organizing this event.

“ How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity! “
Thank you Every One !!!

P.S. We have received a lot of positive feedback after the banquet. We are so excited and encouraged !  Glory to God !!

Maggie & Carol ( Lo )
