Combined Preacher Refresher Course
- Date: 9 to 13 September 2018
The five-day, Combined Preacher Refresher Course was held at the Olive Garden in Port Dickson from 9 to 13 September 2018. Most of the preachers were from West Malaysia (a total of eight), four from Singapore and one from Australia, The speaker was Eld. Che Fu-Ming from the Taiwan General Assembly. The theme of the course was, ‘Fight the Good Fight.’ The purpose of the course was to provide an occasion for the preachers to discuss and share with each other, to solidify the relationships of the preachers from various places, and to deepen mutual understanding.
The programme of the course was divided into two categories—sharing in the morning and the discussion in the afternoon and evening. Based on the life of the apostle Paul, Eld. Che Fu-Ming shared his personal experiences of his servitude for the Lord with the preachers. The topics discussed included the methods for continuous improvement and the challenges of the preachers’ ministry.
They also took the opportunity to visit the local believers, such as Eld. James Chin’s wife and Dn. Titus Loo’s mother. The delicacies prepared by the cooks and the elaborate set-up of the dining hall provided a cosy and pleasant dining environment for the preachers.
Thank God, through this course, the preachers could mutually encourage in fellowship and influence each other with the Lord’s love. We ask that the Lord keep all those who are willing to serve and do sacred work. May the Lord bless them with added wisdom and abilities.
