This year’s Children’s Day celebration was held while the Flower Queen Festival was happening. Approximately 15,000 members from Providence Gospel, children and adults alike, attended the opening ceremony. After the opening ceremony, there were activities prepared for the participants to enjoy, such as an art experience booth.

However, after the opening ceremony ended, all the children and parents decided to praise the Trinity through songs and offered their prayers. When everyone started praising and the children got up to dance on stage, everyone on the lawn also joined in to give glory to God. It was a beautiful scene.
