SCGM Missions Breakfast Fellowship – 03 MAY 2019

 

Topic:

TIMOTHY RICHARD AND HIS STRATEGIC MISSIONS IN CHINA

 

Timothy Richard was a Protestant missionary who spent 45 years in late Qing China from 1870 to 1915. He helped establish churches and mission stations in the northern provinces in Shandong and Shanxi and trained local Christians and workers for the Chinese church. His compassion for the poor led him to serve in famine relief and social reforms in China, paving the way to reach the Chinese officials and engage in the modernization of China. This talk highlights his strategic missionary approach in his quest for souls which was a broader and more holistic resulting in his lasting legacy including the establishment of the Shanxi University after 1902.

"Reading and Reflection"
study guide
1. Out of the 10 inspiring stories of missionaries sent from Singapore, which story do you like best? Why?
2. Do you agree that God has given children a sense of curiosity and a mind full of imagination? At play, they explore the world they live in. The school, the church and the home can provide wonderful opportunities for children to learn about different people and cultures in the wonderful world God has created.
3. How many types of occupations can you list from the 10 missionary stories? Have you started to think about what you would like to do when you grow up?
4. Can you match the missionaries with their occupations? Whether you are a medical doctor or a dental nurse, a pastor or a teacher, a business leader or a community worker, you can serve God in missions using your special interest, talent and training.
5. It is never too early to wonder about life. Many of the missionaries asked questions even when they were young. Some of them experienced bullying, disappointments, unhappiness and even family problems when they were young. They learnt about the purpose of their lives when they started talking to parents, pastors and teachers in church. Do you talk to your parents and teachers about your hopes and fears?
6. Do you realize that God can use your childhood interests, experiences and education to be a blessing to the people around you? Whether it is learning about science, geography, or enjoying the fishing at the beach or making music, it takes hard work to become good at what you like to do. So work hard, play hard and enjoy your childhood.
