THE END OF THE YEAR AND NEW HOPE FOR 2019



Shalom All,

Greetings in the name of our gracious Lord!

"If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come " - 2 Corinthians 5:17 (ESV).

As the clock ticks towards the NEW YEAR, leaving 2018, it is good for us to take a moment to reflect.
     
       Have we walked with faith and steadfastness with our Lord.
       Love Him as much as He loves us.
       In tune and in step with Him,
       Obedient to His Will.
       And so will say to Him,
       A Big "Thank You, Almighty God !"
       And so Goodbye 2018!
       And Welcome 2019, your new year for us!
    
So let us see what God has planned for us in the coming year.

Just as the Lord has faithfully delivered His people out of Egypt into a new promised land, Israel, He will bring to you a New Year, filled with the abundant life to come with the New Year! 

My walk with God the past 5 years … my wife, Jenny, and I have been serving the Vietnamese Christian Refugees ministry for the past 5 years. It is a challenging ministry. We have faced many ups and downs, but in all situations, we give glory to God for giving us strength to continue serving Him, but then I am a person who has the persistence to continue to rebuild. We have witnessed the growth in the faith of the refugees we have served and helped build.

It is time to let them grow in their faith, as we can see their spiritual growth and they are blessed from God. And we will diligently pray for them to be able to resettle in a third country, as the Will of the Lord meets each individual's needs.

Our next mission for 2019 ...

We plan to start a Christian NGO known as Seedlings XXX Foundation in Thailand.

Our main focus is to help  children from poor homes to be given a better education than they are receiving now, to facilitate the schools we serve with better teaching materials and to strengthen their Christian faith. 

It is our long term goal to achieve this end, we have set up an initial committees. To first seek registration with the Ministry of Interior, the Government of Thailand as a NGO, that will be more accountable to the government, the public and your tithes/offerings.

We are in this journey together and with God’s help, we will be prepared for whatever 2019 may bring us together, in His service.

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2019!

Sharing in His goodness,
Steve Peter H S Kok (Rev)
