March Prayer Requests
- Dr Bruce Winter, formerly Principal of the Queensland Theological College, will be visiting Singapore in the first half of April to teach two one-week courses on the Book of Acts and on 1 & 2 Peter. Dr Winter has devoted much of his scholarly life to studying the New Testament against its historical background in the Greco-Roman world of the 1st century AD. We are sure that he will have many valuable insights to impart in this teaching. Please pray for good enrolment, that many will be able to benefit from the lecture and courses.
- BGST Admin and Library have been working very hard in recent weeks, as we attempt to coordinate various publicity initiatives. Please pray for our Admin staff (Mr Alan Ho, Ms Koh May Fern, Mr Adam Peh and Ms Lynn Yong) and our Library staff (Mr Leong Kok Weng, Mdm Daisy Sim and Ms Tan Juat Wah) that God will sustain them, particularly at times when the work that needs to be done keeps piling up.
- During 2014 we are aiming to persuade at least four churches in Singapore to adopt our recently introduced Certificate programmes, the Certificate in Biblical Studies and the Certificate in Theological Studies. Churches will be invited to host one or both of these programmes and encourage their members to attend. We hope that this initiative will be a means of helping many Singaporean Christians see the value of theological education. Please pray for us as we enter into discussion with church leaders.
Please pray for these people:
for Mr Quek Tze Ming, as he begins a 6-month sabbatical, that God will enable him to complete his PhD, and that the finished PhD may be a good piece of work; and
for Dr Philip Satterthwaite who will be preaching most of the sermons in Chapel this semester. He theme is the fruit of the Spirit (Gal. 5:22-23). Please pray for him as he prepare the sermons and for all of us at BGST, that we will manifest the fruit of the Spirit as we work together.
