U Matters

This week we were surf fishing in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. While we were catching fish, a few hundred meters down the beach a shark caught a swimmer--actually a wader. The very water we were swimming and fishing in turned out to be shark infested.

We think all is well but just below the surface there might be danger. Good thing we have a God who is a very present strength in time of trouble.

Building Union for the Future Update

The BUFF team continues to work on improving the design of our new church. However, they are working under various technical constraints and the process is time consuming. This, together with the proposed renovation of Golden Centre (our proposed temporary accommodation), means that we expect to remain at our Kennedy Road premises until June 2016. Please continue to pray that God’s will be done. If you have any questions, please contact Kay Ian Ng.
