A Really BIG ThankYou!

Dear brothers and sisters,

I have served God for the last fifty-two years of my life. It is, at the same time, a challenge and a privilege. At its heart is the opportunity to know and belong to wonderful people who also want to serve God. This creates a very special kind of family bond. For me, most of the names of those people will not be famous this side of heaven. But they are people I want to boast about and celebrate. They are faithful and faith-filled. They are committed and generous. They are the ones that stand on the edge of a cliff and say, “Yes, we can go forward.”

Experiences like the one we enjoyed last week was an eminent example of this. We were facing a financial shortfall at the end of June of approximately $12,000. Not a bit amount by some comparisons, but big in our world. We had no specific resource we could draw on. We operate on a week-by-week income and expenditure budget. When I mentioned this in church last Sunday week, I asked that we might join together in prayer and ask God to find the way to meet our needs.

I could never have anticipated that the response would be so swift and amazing. In the space of just a few days, that full amount had been given and then some; more than we needed for our June commitments (but it will help us in July). People gave generously and anonymously. They did so in the spirit of Jesus’ teaching in the sermon on the mount: lovingly, wholeheartedly and without the need to draw attention. I spent the next few days trying to figure out who those generous people might be. But I soon realised that anonymous means they didn’t want to be known and gave it up. What anonymous does mean is we can all celebrate what they have done together. Anonymous giving is like that – it produces gratitude that binds people together.

So I wanted to send out another call to you (I hope everyone will get to read this). I want you to rejoice in God’s favour and in the love and generosity of people in our church. We have an amazingly generous congregation.  Many people regularly give, especially online.  Then when times like this come, they give again.

I want to thank God for them and sincerely appreciate what they have done. It is such faithfulness as this that has enabled us to “punch above our weight” for many years. 

We know that God will never be surpassed when it comes to the matter of giving. May we all be challenged to discover the reality of what Paul spoke about when he quoted words of Jesus not recorded in any of the gospels: “It is more blessed to give than to receive.” (Acts 20:35) Be blessed everyone.

Thank you !!!

Brian Medway on behalf of all of us.

Watts Happening On DTS Missions Trip – Week 3


Three weeks already.

This week has been a bit quieter than the past two weeks.

Monday we went to corporate worship with YWAM Singapore and this was followed by an afternoon of team time, worshipping, praying for the week and practicing presentations for two chapel services we would do at Geylang Methodist School.

Tuesday evening we went to a hostel managed by a struggling Singaporian Christian and worshipped and encouraged him. He lives on the edge of the red light district.

Wednesday we had a really early start with the first of two chapel services (Yr 3 – 15 yr old) followed by a really powerful corporate intercession time and then some briefings for Celebration of Hope, a large all churches evangelistic series of meetings. The momentum for these has been amazing, especially  with it happening in the middle of Ramadan and on the weekend of Verdak, a big Buddhist celebration.

Yesterday we did chapel again, This time to the 14 yr olds. Both mornings chapel begins at 7.30am. We had a rest day after this, exploring Little India before going home.

We are going to the Ramadan Bazaar near us tonight and are hoping to talk with our cousins.

Tomorrow and Sunday we have early starts as we serve at Celebration of Hope. Can’t believe our time here is almost over but Kuala Lumpur awaits.

Please remember Leonie as she pushes in to see the last of her finances come in and then joins the team next Tuesday evening.

Blessings from a very hot Singapore,


Watts Happening On DTS Missions Trip – Week 2

So this past week has been insanely busy for us with every day full, coupled with “summer” heat of 34C (but feeling like 42C with the humidity).

We meet with the Singapore base corporately a couple of times a week for worship and intercession. This means being on a bus at 7.30am.

We did an orientation to Singapore last Monday, and this meant  a treasure hunt around some of Singapore finding out some of its history. It also allowed us to connect with people. I meet two Indian men in transit to Tokyo for an IT contract. Two of the gir l s got to pray for an Indian woman

Tuesday morning we went to a 6 30am city wide prayer meeting that has been running every Tuesday for over 6 years. They gave a city wide, all churches evangelistic series of meetings on 19 -21 May in National Stadium, with two meetings fully booked already.

Tuesday evening we prayer walked the red light district in groups trying to connect with people. Singapore YWAM have been doing this for a number of years.

Wednesday we prayer walked Arab Street (Ramadan is on) looking for opportunities to share with cousins. In the evening YWAM opened up their facilities for a bbq that the local community were invited to. Geylang district is the centre of drug dealing and prostitution and a difficult but needy area.

Thursday and Friday mornings we did some land clearing in a house that Singapore YWAM have acquired to use as a juvenile half way house.

On Thursday evening we went a bazaar that is held during Ramadan each year.

Saturday afternoon/evening we went to Zion Full Gospel youth and had an amazing time sharing about God’s heart for the lost, then yesterday we went to Christ Methodist and had a great time of worship.

This is an amazing city full of opportunities. The Christian population of the city has been around 18% for over 10 years and the churches are really focused on changing this. On the beach front near us hundreds of immigrant workers sleep in the open as they look for work and housing. So many needs disappear in this modern city (reminds me of home).

Leonie joins us in a week as we go to Kuala Lumpur (she needs to see some finances come in still) and we have two school chapels Wednesday and Thursday morning in a “christian” school where only 10% of the teenagers profess a faith.

We will also be working with over 1000 other volunteers at Celebration of Hope next weekend.

Phew, tired just remembering the past week.

I’ll send a few photos separately.
