Love and Humility

I have learned from life that whatever we do, it must be done in love and humility.

Visit to Korea

We are (about 14 of us from St Helen's Serian) visiting Korea. It is a 10-day trip organized by Prof and Rev Jeung of Sacheon Presbyterian Church of Korea. Leaving on Fri 28 Oct and coming back on 7 Nov. At Incheon Airport we hope to be met by Rev. Paul Shin. Paul spent almost 20 years working as a pastor in Kuching and hence, he speaks good Iban, BM and English. After that Rev. Jeung himself will take us around in the bus that he will personally drive. Looking forward to the visit.

The team members are:

Rev. Trevor Tinda & Mrs Mildred Tinda
Mr Boniface Jirok & Lily Majang
Mr Thomas Bakit & Nancy Buyung
Mr William Abong & Evelyn Landing
Mr Estel Simpol & Julia Sigi
Mdm Nyuhen Linggon
Mdm Newrita Noria
Mdm Katherine Sumang
Mdm Catherine Runyan

An Old Man

This morning, my wife went to BDC for a bite. Mildred ordered a bowl of laksa (which looked nice). I took the opportunity to talk to the old man who cooked the laksa. He was quite friendly and we were able to strike a good conversation. He was telling me about his life as a young man; about his children; and how he had to work hard to survive and feed his family. His talked about his involvement in buying shares, only to be cheated by some bad big shots. Pity him. He talked about his heart ballooning done at Normah. He is 81 years old, still selling laksa at BDC.

There are plenty of things to learn from him. I enjoyed the conversation.

Praise and Worship

We have started to use Praise and Worship in our 8.00 am service. I feel that me as a priest should lead the way for others to follow. I am serious in doing this cos I would want to see people enjoying the presence of God. The very presence of God is what we seek. We are not satisfied with having just His protection without His presence. Indeed, we are highly favored, greatly blessed and deeply loved.
