Dear family in Christ
This weekend is our Diocesan Missions Sunday, where we remember and pray for the 6 deaneries which God has entrusted to our diocese in the proclamation of the gospel and church planting work.
Attached to this e-bulletin is the Diocesan Mission Annual Report 2021, where you can read each deanery’s organisation & staff profile, financial needs, infrastructural projects and prayer requests.
Value your prayers for the 6 deans: Revd Steven Seah (Cambodia), Revd Dr Timothy Chong (Indonesia), Revd Ian Hadfield (Laos), Canon Steven Asirvatham (Nepal), Canon Yee Ching Wah (Thailand) and Revd Jonathan Wong (Vietnam). Pray for them as they lead their respective Deanery Council, Field council and Field team of pastors with clear vision, effective strategy and systematic development plan, so as to establish a community of witnesses for Christ and towards the formation of a future diocese rooted in the Anglican heritage. Pray for their personal well-being and their family as they attend to the work in the field or from the base in Singapore.
Let us pray for the Lord to supply the resources needed for these growing deaneries and to call out more labourers (committed missionaries and indigenous clergy & staff) into the harvest field. Pls pray for the indigenous churches to grow in spiritual maturity to reflect the glory of God and for the formation of good biblical foundations and Spirit-filled communities of committed disciples of Jesus.
I encourage the people of God to give generously and sacrificially towards the gospel work in the deaneries. You may send your gift by cash, cheque or bank transfer to the account of St John’s Chapel. Pls indicate clearly on the envelope or in the banking details that your gift is designated for the deaneries.
“And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.” Matthew 24:14
