A Time & Season for Everything.

In 2 Timothy 4:2, Paul charged Timothy to “Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage – with great patience and careful instruction.”

When God sent us to a neighbouring country, we stayed there for four years to set up and plant ministries. However, during the last year in that country, we were reaping the fruits of our labour and became too complacent. Too complacent staying in a cozy place that the Lord told us He would send people to help us. It was because we were so spiritually blinded by our comfort that we did not know He had to drive us out in order to accomplish His will for us in our new season; that was, to move back to our country where He would connect us to be the overseas missionaries of a respected world-wide Church and preparing our season to be in USA.

In the process, we were betrayed and deceived in the final days of staying in the neighbouring country. Our ministry’s vehicle was clamped, water supply in our unit was cut off and our church members were blocked from entering our ministry’s centre. Our unit was surrounded and we were placed in a very threatening situation, and forced to make a quick exit and return to Singapore, to accomplish His will for our new season.

Despite the life threatening experiences, God had kept us safe.

Romans 8:28-31
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified. What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?”

To our God and Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen!
