3 & 4 Nov 2018
Dear family in Christ
The theme for our November missions month are “None should perish” (English services) and “Light of the World, Light of Life” (Mandarin/dialect services). We have invited guest preachers with varied missional experiences to share God’s Word and their particular areas of ministry in missions. I pray that the various messages will help us to see what the Lord is doing in Singapore and in the nations of the world in the proclamation of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
There will be a diocesan ‘Synod Plus’ Missions gathering on 8 November, Thursday 7.30 pm, at St Andrew’s Cathedral. The focus is on “Diocesan Perspective and Strategy on Church Planting in the Deaneries”. May I encourage us to make time to attend, so as to hear and pray for the growth and development of church-planting work in the six deaneries of Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Nepal, Thailand and Vietnam.
Pls uphold the following in fervent prayers: (1) SJCp missionaries Gerry and Yahui serving at ChiangMai with Deanery of Thailand; (2) The Goslings serving with a missions agency focusing on IT support and outreach to refugees; (3) Deborah Loh serving with Overseas Missionary Fellowship in church planting work at Bangkok, Thailand. Deborah is currently back in Singapore on special leave to care for her father undergoing cancer treatment; (4) Preparation of church Mission teams going to Batam (Nov) and Hanoi (Dec).
