SCGM Missions Breakfast Fellowship 07 July 2016


Topic: The Last Lap: Living Full, Leaving Empty

Post-55, what do we do with what we have acquired: our possessions, experience and expertise? What do we keep and what do we let go? What do you discard and what do we pass on? The lives of Asaph and Hezekiah in the Bible have much to teach us about finishing well the last lap–or ending badly.

Date: 07 July 2016, Thursday

Time: 8.30am – 9.30am (breakfast starts at 8am)

Venue: St Andrew’s Cathedral Prayer Hall A & B

Speaker: Rev Dr David Wong

Senior Pastor, Zion-Bishan Bible-Presbyterian Church

At 55, when Rev Dr David Wong collected part of his CPF, he began thinking seriously about the last lap. Both his parents went home to the Lord in their early 70’s so he reckoned he had some 15 years of active life and ministry left. He wrote two books, “Finishing Well” and “Beyond Finishing Well” and have spoken on those subjects in different parts of the world. Forty years in ministry, he is currently senior pastor of Zion Bishan Bible-Presbyterian Church, and is married to Jenny with 2 married daughters and 4 grandchildren.

"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.
