Dear TCCBC Church Family,
Entering December means the coming of Christmas and the coming of winter. Although California is blessed by nature and can be called spring-like all year round, it can also be a bit chilly. Please keep your elders warm to avoid getting cold. Speaking of physical health, recent progress has been made in the prevention and treatment of the pandemic. The long-awaited coronavirus vaccine has finally been approved by the British CDC this week. It should be available here before Christmas. When first batch of 40 million doses of vaccines are released, 327,000 doses will be provided here in California according to reports. Medical staff at the frontline of the pandemic prevention will be given first priority as well as nursing homes and long-term care for the elderly. Thank God for allowing the United States to develop an effective vaccine in such a short period of time. I hope it can slow the spread of the pandemic and even eliminate the germs. We look forward not just to the advent of vaccines but also to the possibility of returning to church to worship next spring.
I have been busy this week so this letter is shorter. I will write another manuscript and publish it in the semi-annual magazine “Heavenly Dew”. But I still want to remind everyone that this weekend, that is, tomorrow, we will have the opportunity to meet and communicate with Brother Stephen Choy, the English pastoral candidate, on the Internet. I hope you will participate as much as possible and urgently pray to the Lord for this important church matter. For your convenience, I have put the schedule made by the church for Brother Choy this weekend below. You can click on the Internet to participate.

The next two weeks will be a very critical moment for the United States because on December 14th, the electoral college of the United States will decide the next President of the United States in accordance with the powers and responsibilities granted by the Constitution. Since this year’s election was complicated and contentious, it is difficult to predict what kind of results will occur and what reactions will be brought to society. I hope that God will have mercy on us so that the United States can successfully produce the next national leader who can not only to lead Americans to continue on the path of fearing God but to govern the country according to the principles of the Bible and so as to influence the countries of the world to have a peaceful and stable international situation. I hope that the brothers and sisters will spend special time pleading before God in their daily prayers. May God bless America.
Praying together to God,
Pastor Job Lee, Senior Pastor
