My Chinese birthday

I visited the Chinese Catholic mission today to continue the series of Bible study lessons I began with them over a year ago (today we took a look at 2 Thessalonians). At the end we went out for our usual dinner in Chinatown, but the end of the dinner had a special treat:

Chinese birthday!

Surprise! Out comes a cake and the group bursts into song. Even better was a nice card I received with kind words from all who were present. And I had to admit, they had me totally fooled — I didn’t have a CLUE that this was going to happen. I was really touched!
