Dear family in Christ
This weekend, we commemorate Diocesan Missions Sunday. We see the gracious merciful hand of God in calling people to Himself in reconciled relationship and transformed lives. We praise God for people from every tribe and language in Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Nepal, Thailand and Vietnam, coming to salvation faith in Jesus. Please pray for the continual faithful proclamation of the gospel in these six deanery countries and for growth in spiritual maturity of God’s people in committed discipleship.
As the Lord enables, please give unto the Lord for “Give Him a Hundred” (GHH) missions giving in support of church planting work in these six deaneries. I am grateful for the Lord’s provision that last year’s GHH giving had enabled the deanery of Vietnam to purchase an office space property at Hanoi to be used as a place of worship for Church of The True Light and for Abba English centre. Thanks and praise be to God.
Praise the Lord for his faithfulness and goodness to the St Margaret’s School family as she celebrated her 176th anniversary on 16 November. The little seed of compassion planted by Mrs Maria Dyer in 1842 has blossomed into a strong huge tree that has provided the shade of education and character building, and borne much fruit of transformation and salvation in many lives. Our grateful thanks to brothers and sisters at SJCp who have previously or are presently serving faithfully in the Chaplaincy (lighthouse) ministry and the Girls Brigade ministry.
