pic-1Third Year Anniversary Celebration. This is the LORD’Sdoing; it is marvellous in our eyes. The grace of God is constantly poured out upon us and extended to our ministry in Asia. We are so grateful that God has preserved Crosslight and graciously allowed us to serve Him for another year. We rejoice in His divine protection and bountiful blessings. At the anniversary service on Sunday, September 4, the auditorium was completely packed, requiring our volunteers to set up additional chairs. We enjoyed a wonderful time of celebrating His faithfulness to us as a congregation. We seek your earnest prayers regarding our registration as a religious society in Singapore. This is imperative for us to continue to operate effectively.

pic-2One Saved and Baptized. Jenaya came to our church because her father, Kingsley, has attended our church since the very first service three years ago. As he continued to grow in the Lord, his desire has been that his family would also know the Lord and grow in His grace. The Lord has answered that prayer as Jenaya received the Lord on August 9 (Singapore’s National Day) and was later baptized on September 4, 2016.

pic-3Introducing Nate and Melody Rippee. On September 3, I had the privilege of officiating the wedding of Nate and Melody (Leow) Rippee. Nate and Melody met while they were studying for ministry at Northland University in Wisconsin. Melody was born and raised in Singapore. Nate was raised in the state of Idaho. Both of them are passionate about missions. So-much-so that they pursued a degree in cross-cultural studies. I am excited to share with our praying friends that the Lord has directed them to serve full time with us. They will primarily be serving in Singapore but will have different roles as missionaries of SEAL – Spiritually Equipping Asian Leaders. Their current plans are to begin deputation in the USA in February 2017.  Please contact me if you would desire to add this fine young couple as a part of your missions partnership.

pic-4Ministry Needs in Nepal.  Our students and staff in Nepal serve graciously and never seem to complain. Our greatest need is transportation so that we can be more effective in reaching out to the isolated villages and communities that do not yet have the gospel. We are trying to raise enough funds for either a small all-wheel-drive car, motorbike, or scooter. How much we raise will determine what we purchase.

Prayer Requests: 

  1. Church registration process for SG government to approve. 
  2. Speakers for new worship auditorium.
  3. Salvations: Calvin, Aileen, Markus, Wei Lin, Carol, Kelvin, Zizi, Selva, Yap, Jacqueline, See Tong
  4. Nepal Ministry: $5,000 for car OR $3,000 motorcycle OR $2,000 for scooter
  5. Wisdom for USA Furlough Considerations
