At the 1979 Conference of Mennonites in Canada (CMC) delegate sessions, David P. Neufeld, left, welcomed three new congregations into the conference by asking several doctrinal questions regarding their churches’ beliefs and understanding of CMC. He extended the right hand of fellowship to, from left to right: Bob Friesen representing Calgary Mennonite Fellowship, Stephen Lee of Vancouver Chinese Mennonite Church, and Francis Tung of Winnipeg Chinese Mennonite Church.” Seated are Helen Rempel and Irene Klassen. After the ceremony, Sally Lee sang a solo, ‘Blessed Assurance.’
