Prayers for BGST

July Prayer Requests

  1. Pray for
    1. good enrolment for the courses
    2. energy, creativity and a pastoral heart for the lecturers as they set about teaching their courses. It is always a challenge to present lecture material to students in a way that will address the issues they face in the practicalities of their daily walk with God.
  2. Two guest lecturers are visiting BGST in the next six weeks: Dr Eiko Takamizawa, from Torch Trinity Graduate University, Korea, who will be teaching an intensive course on missions, ‘The Gospel for Every Nation: Engaging in Intercultural Mission’ (this course has in fact already started); and Dr Rick Goossen, a sessional lecturer at Regent College, Vancouver, whose course, ‘The Serpent and the Dove: Practical Christian Ethics for Marketplace Challenges’ (beginning August 29th), will address an important ‘marketplace’ issue. Please pray for both these lecturers, for safe travel to and from Singapore, for good enrolment and for good rapport with their students.
  3. Kristine Komlosy is no longer working in the Admin office, as she left us earlier this month to be with her hustband in South Africa. But thanks to the internet, she is still able to help us with much of our publicity material. Please pray for Kristine as she settles down into life in South Africa.
  4. Quek Tze Ming has made good progress on his PhD in June and (so far) in July. Please pray for one last burst of energy for him, so that may be able to complete his draft within the next few weeks.
