At 9 a.m., March 21, 2019, over 300 people including guests with vision impairment from Guangzhou, Zhaoqing, Shenzhen, etc. and staff members from churches in Guangdong Province were gathered together in Shaoguan Church for the thanksgiving service celebrating the 50th anniversary of Mingxin Fellowship.
Mingxin Fellowship began with a prayer meeting by several blind sisters from Shaoguan Welfare Factory in 1969. At that time, they only had two Braille Bibles and a radio left by a deceased teacher called Zhu Ciren.
The past half century witnessed numerous blind kids who were abandoned by parents but were taken in by the Lord (Psalms 27:10) and later became useful people in all walks of life. Among them were teachers, pianists, massagists and even preachers. It is in the weak that God make known His mighty power.
The Thanksgiving Service began in the singing by Mingxin Fellowship, and was hosted by Sister Liao Fengping.
Rev. Huang Yingxin, chairperson of Shaoguan TSPM shared the history of Mingxin Fellowship over the past fifty years and Rev. Jie Qiufu, vice chairperson of Shenzhen TSPM gave a sermon entitled “Tell me what I may do for you”.
