April 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 public lectures and courses.
- On Saturday April 26th BGST will be throwing open its doors to the Christian public of Singapore. Between 9.30 a.m. and 1.00 p.m. we will be holding an Open House, with the aim of introducing the work of the School. There will be guided tours of the School, along with a one-hour presentation, giving brief introductions to our programmes and our teaching style, and short specimen lectures. The presentation will begin at 10.00 a.m., and will be repeated at 11.00 a.m. and 12.00 noon for those who arrive later. Please pray that many will want to attend.
- 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 continue to pray for Mr Quek Tze Ming, currently on sabbatical in Cambridge, that God will enable him to make good progress on his PhD. His aim is to return to Singapore having at least completed a final draft.
