Singapore & May Gift Days

There's so much I'd like to be able to tell you about Singapore and all Ben and I have been learning and experiencing - I wish you could all be here. Sadly it's been hard to get a wireless connection here so I haven't been able to blog as much as I'd hoped.

I'll share much more when I get back, (faith for bigness, hospitality, engaging with culture, and creativity amongst other things) but as I've found a wireless connection I wanted to share a little bit on generosity which has been one of the major themes. That the Bible teaches so clearly that we reap what we sow, but that in order to sow you have to give away what you have and that until you give it away you can't begin to do any reaping. But that if you are willing to let it go, just as the boy did with the 5 loaves and 2 fish, then God can do amazing things.

I know for me God has spoken to me so clearly about financial generosity and sowing, and this weekend as we come to the last Sunday of the gift days I want to encourage you to sow generously. If you haven't already given then please think about what God wants you to sow, and if you have given ask God if he wants you to give more. Together we can do something amazing.

Yonggi Cho has just started speaking so must go now. Can't wait to see you all again when we get back.

Simon.

Wow, sounds fantastic.. it's great to hear how different countries and cultures experience church and how they go out and do church in their communities.
Looking forward to hearing about it!
