|NOVEMBER 12TH, 2017 PJ CHURCH OF CHRIST BULLETIN
We thank brother Joel Tan for his very encouraging sermon on “Living to Please God” last Sunday. This morning brother Krishnan will preach a sermon on “Drawing Attention”. Do bring your loved ones/ friends to worship with us every Sunday.
SUNDAY ADULT BIBLE CLASS:
This morning brother Wong Wee Loke will bring another lesson from the “Strengthening Your Grip” series – on “Attitudes”. Food for Thought: “…it was an attitude that brought the Saviour down to us. He deliberately chose to come among us because he realized and valued our need. He placed a higher significance on it than His own comfort and prestigious position. In humility, He set aside the glory of heaven and came to be among us. He refused to let His position keep us at arm’s length. Circumstances occur that could easily crush us. They may originate on the job or at home or even during the weekend when we are relaxing. Unexpectedly, they come. Immediately we have a choice to make … an attitude choice. We can hand the circumstance to God and ask Him to take control or we can roll up our mental sleeves and slug it out. Joy awaits our decision. If we do as Philippians 4:6-7 suggests, peace replaces panic and joy moves into action. It is ready, but it is not pushy.” Please bring your children punctually for the Sunday Children/Youth Class to be taught the Bible every week.
Please pray for brethren who are travelling: Ong Chong Fatt (USA): Cornelius & Cynthia Ting (Zhangjiajie, China). Also pray for Sophie Ng & Marcus Oh – recuperation; Eunice Tan - expecting her first child; Bernedette Savitha (Tony George’s niece) – ovarian cancer; Norm Jensen – recuperating in Bakersfield, California; sister Nalini – heart problems; Chan Lay Har (Bedok Singapore) – recuperating from major stroke; Wong See Keok, Tan Swee Yoke, Choy Foong’s mother, Bawani’s father, Tan Yoke Ying and sister Thoo – health concerns. Please inform the church staff if you need to be included in the bulletin prayer list.

GREETINGS FROM CHICAGO:
Nov. 9th, 2017: I am presently in transit at the Chicago Airport awaiting my flight to La Guardia Airport in New York to visit Akinde Oluminde and his family. Left Memphis early this morning at 7.00 am. I have now only one more month in the United States before I fly back home. Last Sunday I preached at the Highlands Chinese congregation on “Eat, Drink and Find Satisfaction in your Life.” In the afternoon, I preached at the East Frayser congregation on “The Great Nevertheless of God”. This coming Tuesday I will share with the Mission Interest Group the work in Malaysia at Dr. Evertt Huffard Home. Always good to be able to share the Word and the work around Malaysia and South East Asia. Been doing lots of personal reading and preparation for the various classes I am attending. Have purchased and gotten (some free of charge) more books that I can bring back home. Got to watch out for the weight limit for my check-in baggage. Will discard the clothes I brought to make room (ha!). Need to prioritize what is of utmost importance. The Semester is fast coming to an end and the HST students are very busy with assignments and final exams. I will be preaching two more Sundays in Ames, Iowa during Thanksgiving week. Then a week in Nashville with Miles Cotham, San Tin, Kok Hai and all the folks that I know over the years. Then Bakersfield, LA, on the way back to Malaysia. Please continue to pray for me in my studies and travels. The weather is getting colder and I need to wear the sweaters and jacket when I go out. The trees are changing colors to either deep yellow, red or orange and then they shed their leaves. It gets dark before 5.00 pm in Memphis. I am more accustomed to driving in USA but always have to remind myself to keep and drive right. It has been a great learning experience. The sad news is that when I get totally accustomed, I will have to reorientate myself to keep left (ha!) in Malaysia. It has been a great three busy months at HST and my travels in USA and Canada. Schooling and studies have been fantastic. Professors and staff and students have been most kind and gracious. I have been eating and sleeping well. Thankful for that. Taking my medication regularly too. God has been very good and kind to me. Will write more in NY or when I return back Memphis. God Bless! OCF
