主內蔡阿妹姊妹安息周年追思禮拜 Loving Memories…

And so to Da-Xi in Taoyuan County yesterday for a very moving Memorial Service to mark the first anniversary of the death of a very special lady, Mrs. Tsai A-Mei ~ mother of our great friend Feng-Mei.

Her death and funeral were actually last year in February 2012 (recorded in my blog post here – and the amazing story of how she became a Christian just before she died, and so had a Christian funeral).  So this Memorial Service has been a bit delayed, but in the meantime, both Feng-Mei and her sister have had babies, and younger brother’s wife is now expecting her third child.. so they’ve been busy!

IMG_4100The Memorial Service was led by Rev. Lily Chang of Good Shepherd Church, Taipei and held in the room where the urns of ashes are stored. The ashes of Feng-Mei’s mother are up on the top row (second from right) – she’s the only one in the immediate area with a cross on the door, all the others have the Buddhist symbols….

A very beautiful service of prayers and readings and a short talk, followed by the blessing and then individual blessings for all the children.   The good news is that the 3 older children of Feng-Mei’s sister are now going to Sunday School every Sunday in a church nearby…

Feng-Mei herself lives in PengHu, islands off Taiwan’s S. W. coast, so this is the first time that her new baby has met her mother’s family….
