Dear family in Christ
We thank the Lord for our church missionaries, called by God to bring the gospel of Jesus our Messiah beyond the shores of Singapore. Pls remember them regularly in prayer, give them a call, write an email or send a card to encourage them in their ministry.
- Ian & Alison Gosling – They serve strategically under a foreign missions agency, with Ian providing significant IT development and support for the agency’s mission outreach to many unreached people groups around the world. They also reach out to displaced refugees with the gospel. Pls pray for Alison’s health and for Ian to recover well from his cataract operation.
- Gerry & Ya Hui Gan – They have served faithfully for the past 7 years at ChiangMai in church planting work through education and community services under the deanery of Thailand. They will be in Singapore from June to August 2019 for a sabbatical. Pls pray for God’s grace, wisdom and strength for their family life and ministry outreach.
- Deborah Loh – She is currently in Singapore under admin leave of absence to care for her father as he recovers from laryngeal cancer surgery. She plans to return to Bangkok in May 2019 to continue her outreach to the urban poor community. Pls pray for her to receive the four clearances required by Overseas Missionary Fellowship, especially in the area of financial support.
Our church practises the two-envelope giving system. The first is the Tithing envelope. All tithes returned to the Lord go to the General Fund, which is used to pay staff salaries, ministry expenses, diocese quota, etc. The second is the Freewill giving envelope. This goes to the Mission Fund, which is used to support the above-mentioned missionaries, plus other regular and ad-hoc giving to missions as decided by PCC. As the Lord enables, may we give obediently, joyfully and generously for the work of God’s eternal kingdom.
