One CHC member, Zi Chi Wo, said he is touched by the uplifting messages and the concern shown for his congregation by Singaporeans during this difficult period: “I would like to personally thank all Singaporeans for standing by City Harvest Church and our dear leaders in this difficult time of transition.”
“Singaporeans have been very caring and thoughtful. They have stayed glued to the latest updates of the trial and kept abreast of every minutiae of the process. This shows they are concerned and involved with us.”
Other CHC members said they were touched by the strong national support and thank all would-be followers of their religion for sparing a thought.
Another CHC goer, Qi Dao, said: “The public reception to our trial has been positive and many Singaporeans over the past week have seen how dignified we have carried ourselves and will come to understand that this whole issue is only a small misunderstanding.”
“In time to come, the truth will dawn and we will be vindicated as our church moves forward to convert everyone in this country.”
