Admittedly, when we share the Good News in Singapore these days, it no longer feels like the “Good News”. It seems like whoever we share with has heard it before and few are really excited to receive it. Rather than be discouraged by this lukewarm response, we should certainly pray ceaselessly for our Lord to move the hearts of those who hear. We need to continue infecting everyone with the joy we experience because our God is truly good—yesterday, today and tomorrow.
Beyond our shores, the reverse is true. The Good News is certainly still newsworthy and received as when originally proclaimed by Jesus and His early followers. Recently, two of our staff, Chris Liu and Abner Yee, visited Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam for 10 days. During their stay, they met two separate individuals who were interested in practicing English. In the course of their interaction, these individuals had the opportunity to hear the gospel, discuss it further and eventually, make professions of faith! Praise the Lord! They are now followed up by other local believers. Our two staff were clearly moved by how the Holy Spirit had touched the lives of these individuals.
As we continue to rejoice in the Good News, we also desire to press on in sending more to share it, even to other countries like Indochina. Pray with us for labourers in our midst to be willing to go, especially for longer stints.
