SCGM Missions Breakfast Fellowship 05 JANUARY 2018, FRIDAY

Topic:

PRAYER AND THE LORD OF THE HARVEST

Join us at our first Breakfast Fellowship in 2018 as Rev Dr Timothy Chong shares on the importance of prayer from the book of Matthew 9:35-10:4 and the church planting work of the Anglican Church in Indonesia which he oversees.

Our Lord Jesus Christ told His disciples in very clear and certain terms that the harvest was great. He said that the labourers were few. To this end, Jesus instructed His disciples to pray to the Lord of the Harvest to send out labourers into the harvest fields . So too today, His instruction is for us to pray as well. Before us are the harvest fields where the seeds have already been scattered by those who have gone out to labour before us. So, we too are to pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to continue to send out labourers into His harvest.

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.
