8 August 2008 is known internationally as the opening of the 2008 Beijing Olympics, a time to celebrate the world coming together in the spirit of sportsmanship and brotherhood. It is a time for us to overlook our differences and celebrate our common humanity. Ex US President Bill Clinton, in his address of the 2006 Harvard graduating class, talked about letting our common humanity unite us, instead of letting our petty differences divide us.
Over the past 11 months, Kevin and Jeh Sie have been on unpaid leave from work and travelling around Asia, visiting and working with a variety of mission organisations. The primary objective of the trip was exposure. We had been on many short-term trips, supported mission work and mobilized for mission in the past, all from the perspective of the 1st world church. We’d felt that God wanted to stretch our understanding and see things from the “other side of the fence”.
The dates for these trips are subject to change caused by circumstances beyond our control. Please check back regularly for updates, or contact us!
Exciting things are happening in this only Buddhist kingdom in the world. And God is answering our prayers: unprecedented opportunities and openness to the Gospel heralds a KAIROS moment in the Lord’s timing for this nation.
Venue: YMCA Orchard Road, Singapore
At the SEED Thanksgiving Night, we give thanks and praise to God for all that He has done thru this ministry. Partners & friends of SEED reflect on the Lord's faithfulness and hear messages from the people and ministries that have benefitted. The annual report and accounts of SEED are also presented.
For the first time, my son, Kevin, and his wife, Jeh Sie, and Julie Teo joined me for an assignment in Nagaland from 4 to 17 Dec 2007. We ministered at two Bible colleges in Dimapur, as well as at a dynamic young church in Kohima, the state capital. The team’s ministry at Withee Bible College was featured in two local newspapers. At both colleges, all classes were closed for both students and faculty members to be at our sessions.
SEED Ministries is committed to providing financial and medicinal support to a clinic for Internally Displaced People (IDP) and villagers. Located in a war zone inside Burma, this clinic supports a population of about 10,000 people, of which about 2% are military, the rest civilian. The next medical service of any sort is a full day's trek away, over inhospitable and mountainous terrain, across enemy lines and minefields.
This is an excellent introductory course for people dipping their toes into the exciting world of Mission, but also a great refresher for people who have been involved for years to catch a fresh vision for the Nations! When I took the course, there were people who had never stepped out of New Zealand, but also pastors, and a missionary lady who had been working in central asia and the middle east for 30+ years!!
