With our brothers and sisters in Christ from Sydney, Malaysia, and Indonesia gathering as one at our Singapore church, we kickstarted our first ever Hope Equip with a night of games and fellowship on the 7th of July. The place was filled with joyous laughter and excited chatter as we were split into different teams to compete in an amazing race.
The next morning, we prepared our hearts and minds to be equipped through the sharing and workshops conducted by Pastor Aileen and Pastor David. Some of us picked up musical instruments for the first time, while others learnt how to effectively share about the gospel.
All that we were equipped with were put into practice the next day as those who learnt musical instruments put together a rendition of “How Great is Our God” for the entire church. Those who learnt about sharing the gospel practised speaking to one another about Jesus Christ. At the end of it all, we celebrated the anniversary of our Singapore and Malaysia extension services with cake. To our joy, we also witnessed the salvation of a sister in Christ.
The three days we spent growing together passed by in the blink of an eye and before we knew it, we all had to return to our respective countries. But each of us went away from this experience ever more equipped and refreshed to do God’s work – to serve and to save others.
