Here is the group that gathered together to receive God’s gifts on Easter Sunday in Singapore! My March/April visit to Singapore was a blessing, as I met some new friends, continued to conduct services, and got to know Singapore even better. Due to some unexpected delays, we had to postpone progress on the plan to obtain visas again, but hope to pick up that process again soon.
Meanwhile I am already looking ahead to my next visit to Singapore (May/June), this time with Professor John Pless from Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, IN. Prof. Pless will be giving a lecture on the “Lutheran Theology of Suffering” for local pastors there, as well as a workshop geared toward laity. It should be a great week, with lots of opportunities to make new connections. Then I plan to stay for another few weeks and continue to serve the emerging congregation, while hopefully progressing towards the visas. Lots of excitement on the horizon!
Keep us in your prayers!
