ONE MINUTE WITH PASTOR
Ethel Shin will go on sabbatical during the month of November 2018. She has been serving in full time ministry for seven years. As ministry staff, she is entitled to a month’s sabbatical after every six years of service. This is paid leave of one month for her to rest, be restored and renewed.
Ethel has applied for unpaid leave for an additional three months from 1 December 2018 to 28 February 2019, as she felt she needed more rest and time for processing. As her supervisors, Ps Thomas and Snr Ps Kenny also felt that she needed it and we have the staff strength to cover her duties for that period. The Board of Elders has approved their recommendations.
Please pray for Ethel during this time, that the Lord will lead her to pastures green and waters still, restore her soul, guide her in paths of righteousness, and fill her cup to overflowing (Ps 23).

Guest Speaker’s Biography
Pastor Justin Leong was working as a project engineer before the Lord called him to full-time work in the church more than 20 years ago. He and his wife have personally experienced the miraculous power of God when they finally conceived after 12 years of marriage.
Pastor Justin’s passion is for missions and the lost. He makes regular trips overseas to minister to churches and to share the Gospel, where he has witnessed the deaf hear, the lame walk and many other healings. He also has a father’s heart and is able to connect well with people of all ages.
