Dear Honoured guests, Pastors, and JBVC’s friends, On behalf of JBVC’s VIP and volunteers, we thank you for attending our 5 year anniversary celebration! Your best wishes and word of encouragement meant so much to us. May all the praises and glory be our God alone! Again, we were grateful for your support. We look forward to seeing you in our future events. Thanks to our photographers Derek Kwan, Julio Kan, and Eton Leung for capturing the precious moments, and to all the volunteers for their achievement!
Thank you for all your sponsorship and prayer support to us. Our team has 35 people (11 VIP) joined this meaningful event and we have raised over $4200, which means 84 African kids will benefit from clean water. With your support, they no longer need to walk 6k daily to get dirty water and encounter danger on the road. Praise our Lord who poured shower of blessings on us and we all enjoy the wet yet fun event!
We are participating in the 2019 Global 6K For Water fundraising event running for World Vision’s Water Projects. You are welcomed to sponsor us, or join us for a great cause. Your family and friends can join too. Registration is free! There are sufficient parking at the site. If you are interested, please visit our JBVC 6K team page to support us or join us.

Every $50 fundraised provides clean water that lasts for one person. 100% of funds raised during this event goes to World Vision’s Water Projects in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). In the region of Menkao, only 55% of the population has access to potable water, and only 15% having access within 30 mins of their home. These projects will impact the lives of 13,834 people through three communities.
World Vision has since committed to allocate the 2019 Global 6K funds towards the following projects in the Menkao community:
Construct 4 wells with water treatment and distribution system built in Menkao center.
Establish and train 4 Drinking Water Management Committees on maintenance, sustainability and financial management.
Train 10 community members on manual and electric pumps repair.
Construct latrines in schools: 3 VIP latrine blocks with disabled access and menstrual management rooms will be set up in 3 primary schools.
Construct hand-washing stations: a rainwater harvesting system will be built in each school and each latrine will be equipped with a hand-washing system with a tap.
Our Lunch in the Dark event was held recently at Chinese Gospel Church (Toronto). Praise our Lord for the sunny weather and a joyful event! We would like to thank the following groups for partnering with us on this event:
Praise to our Lord that the Project Spotlight event has been completed successfully, with over 600 people and among them were 45 VIP and their families and friends, coming together to enjoy 《Dot 2 Dot》, the first Chinese descriptive movie in Canada.

Your love to our VIP will always be remembered and appreciated by all VIP! May our Lord Jesus Christ reward you all! Let us continue to create the inclusiveness and barriers free community for our VIP!
