dinner & a show… with a side of HOPE

Don’t Cry My Child – Homeless Scene

Last April the church we attend presented a beautiful & professional musical for the local community, the event was free to all. They had a packed house for two Saturday shows. Mark was honored to help the Manna Ministry coordinate the volunteers, food and transportation for the 700+ invited guests that attended the musical. Here is a short summary and testimony from our friends at ICAHK:

On 4/14/2012, ICAHK hosted a Cantonese musical called “Don’t cry, my child”.  The musical displays the true life story of a local Hong Kong man whose life was overtaken by gambling and failure, but through God’s grace He was Born Again! Through his new relationship with Jesus not only his life, but also his marriage and family were all restored…

More than 1,700 people showed up from all over Hong Kong. They came from almost 20 different non-profit organizations and churches.  ICA’s Manna Ministry invited more than 700 people from many less privileged areas of Hong Kong, we transported them to North Point from Fanling, Yuen Long, Tuen Mun, Tin Shui Wai, and Sham Shui Po as well.  Manna also hosted a luncheon for 400 people while another 100 people joined us for a Western Style ‘Chinese’ Buffet Dinner.  And thru it all, more than 76 people gave their lives to the Lord, and another 300 stated they want to know more about Jesus.  To God be the glory.
