Title: Serving for the glory of God
Main Sponsor: Bob Jones Memorial Bible College
Venue: Gospel Light Baptist Church, Philippines
28 May to 30 May 2013
Taking off 27 May
It only seemed like yesterday when we first heard about this Bible conference to be held in the Philippines. After signing up for the trip, we were hoping that more would sign up but nonetheless we were thankful that Brother Chew’s boss eventually approved his leave application at the eleventh hour; and that Samuel could join us for the full trip.
With much anticipation for the refreshing and rejuvenation of God’s words, apprehension of the extreme hot weather and possible anti-Chinese sentiments owing to the recent island spat between China and Philippines) and work burden for Chew, we were grateful to be on our way to the land of thousand islands. We were also thankful for the sweet fellowship of faithful brethrens and sister who sent us off at the airport, and for the assurance that the church was praying for us.
We touched down safely in the Philippines and were welcomed by Brother Cedric’s family. They were all waiting to pick us up to send us to the hotel. We marveled at the number of high-rise buildings which were mostly condominiums that had sprung up around the airport area. We were spared the notorious traffic jam as it was well after 10pm and with Brother Cedric driving like a local who knew the short-cut ways, we headed for our dinner/supper at a much-anticipated Jolly Bee outlet within one hour. With happy tummies, we headed into dreamlands to prepare for the great feast of God’s blessing the next few days.
