Christmas Service and Variety Show 2018

The speaker at our Christmas Service was our beloved former Principal, Mrs. Ruth Lee.  She shared with us different signs in the Bible and in our daily lives which often convey a variety of meanings.  Despite being born in humble conditions in Bethlehem, Jesus Christ has always been revered for his love and willingness to serve.  We must treasure His love and uphold His spirits.  

In her speech, Mrs. Lee talked about the history of Ying Wa, from our humble beginnings and the unpredictable perils of the Japanese Occupation to our most recent development.  Our forefounders’ modest and positive attitudes helped them brave challenges during the journey to developing girls’ education.
