Dear beloved family in Christ

I thank the Lord for the deep joy and great privilege to be your church pastor for the past 6 years. Being God’s under-shepherd, it has been a tremendous shepherding experience filled with laughter and joy, and also tears and sorrow, in our journey of spiritual growth, committed discipleship and pastoral friendship together.

Appreciative thanks for the encouraging support, loving care and fervent prayers for me and Connie and our children in delightful times of fellowship and community life. Thank you so much for all the help, concern and prayers for Connie’s health situation, especially during her multiple hospitalisations and ill health. Thank you also for all the love, help and prayers for our children in their growing teenage years.

It is my honour to labour alongside you together for the gospel with one heart and mind. Grateful thanks to many who served the Lord’s will and purposes in ministry and mission for the kingdom of God and the gospel of Christ.

  • Staff team – for your faithful commitment and joyful service
  • PCC – for your wisdom, missional heart and fear of God
  • Cell leaders – for your commitment and loving care of members
  • Ministry leaders – for your love for God and passion for the gospel
  • Ministry teams – for your faithful service and commitment in ministry
  • Church members – for your fellowship and joy in serving God together

I encourage you to come alongside Canon Barry, Rev Wai Lung and Deaconess Lena in labouring for the gospel in ministry and mission. Keep them in your constant prayers as they shepherd the flock of God with His love, grace and wisdom.

Value your prayers for Rev King Chiew Kwang and myself and our respective families as we transit to our next parish posting. We need the sufficient grace of God and the empowering strength of the Holy Spirit to serve the Lord’s will and purposes for His glory.

As we see the gracious salvation plan in the missional heart of God, may St John’s Chapel keep on being a missionary church of Spirit-filled committed disciples of Jesus Christ, always ready to take the gospel to the nations. “May all who come behind us find us faithful, may the fire of our devotion light their way”.

“Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy. To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.”   (Jude 1:24-25. KJV)
