Dear People,In this Church our congregations are assigned by geographical boundaries. Sometimes, to accommodate the needs of various congregations (more leaders, more young people, etc.) these lines are redrawn. This happened yesterday and it's a HUGE game changer! Let me give a quick rundown of what happened. (In semi-map form!)
Northern Border: Mainland
They lost about the southern third of their area, a region called Fanling. Those of you who follow these letters a bit too religiously will remember that that's where I live. They were the strongest Ward in our area, so no one feels sorry for them losing Fanling.
They got Fanling from Sheung Shui, which is a bonus to their Young Women's program, stole a few housing complexes from us, but lost Tai Wo Estate, which is a massive hit to their Young Women's program.
Tai Po Ward (Where I serve!)
We got Tai Wo Estate! There are some extremely powerful people there that will be HUGE in helping us teach lessons. We also lost a bit of our northern area, but we'll survive. Another massive gain for us was that we got the Chinese university of Hong Kong from Shatin Ward! It's a famous area for being successful for finding people, and I'm excited to have it be a part of where I serve!
