ACommunity

was
held
with
live

and18
game
booths
just
below
Tuen
Mun
Christian
Church's
chapel.
A
couplethousandpeople
attended.
Both
the
church
and
theResidents'Association
in
that
building
operated
booths.
The
residents'
booth
won
first
prize.
The
church's
booth
introducedthe
steps
tosalvation
and
Christian
literature
was
passed
out
to
some
400
people
who
patronizedthe

24:
Anew
attendance
record
was
set
when
about
75
people
attended
the
church's
Christmas
program.
About
10
people
were
standing
and
there
was
virtually
no
room
left,
whichmeans
that
if
the
church
hopes
to
grow,
special
programs
that
might
have
that
large
acrowd
will
have
to
be
given
twice.
And
last
week,29
people
attended
Kid's
Club.
A
year
ago,
29wouldhave
been
the
total
atten
dance
over
the
church's

It
is
my
prayer
that
the
church
will
soon
reach
a
total
attendance
of
80
over
the
three
regular
serv
ices,
and
average
that
numberby
the

It
had
been
almost
a
year
since
the

Peopleoften
erroneously
believe
that
amorepx'osperouslifeissynonymouswitha
closer
walk
withGod.
But
that's
not
always
true
as
recently
released
statistics
about
HongKong
indicate.
People
here
are
much
better
off
than
they
were
ten
years
ago.
However,
widespread
pettytheft
androbbery
have
only
been
replaced
by
more
"upper-class"
crimeslike
rapidly
increasing
immorality
and
ARMED
robbery.
Moreover,
the
increase
in
church
membership
has
noteven
kept
pace
with
the
birthrate.
That
is
to
say.
if
Christians
would
just
lead
their
own
children
to
Christ,
church
membership
should
beincreasing
faster
than
it
is.Such
slow
growth
is
ver^/alarming
because
informationonhow
churches
grow
has
multiplied
over
thepasttenyears.
Moreover,
church
membershipseemstobegrowing
much
faster
under
the
antireligious
government
of
China
thanin
Hong
Kong's
free
society.
TUEN
MUN
CHRISTIAN
CHURCH
At
this
year's
annual
meeting,
besideselecting
board
members,
thechurch
elected
fourjunior
deacons
for
thefirst
time.
Two
years
ago
thechurch
hadfiveCaucasianandfiveChinesemembers.
Now
it
has
three
Caucasian
members
and
thirteen
Chinese
(160%
more
Chinese
than
then).
Attendance
is
about
100%
above
then.
The
church
owns
about
225%
more
property
and
its
facilities
are
about
44%
larger
now
than
two
years
ago.
The
church'spresentself-support
of
about
$640
per
month
is
about
390%
larger
than
two
years
ago.
Finally,
two
years
ago
the
church
provided
four
weekly
group
meetings
or
Bible
classes.
Although
the
Englishworship
service
has
just
beensuspended,
there
are
now
EIGHT
weekly
meetings
or
Bible
groupsin
thechurch.
COMPUTER
LAND
Improvement
inthe
church's
ability
to
support
itself
was
helped
most
by
a
recentagreement
