Partners’ Life on the Line

In February 2016, a team of Singaporeans flew to Nepal to conduct a children’s camp for the third-culture kids of our Interserve partners. This trip isn’t all about running a camp. Going over to serve the third-culture kids gave me a glimpse of what it is like to be serving God in a foreign land especially with a family. And we were privileged to hear from our Partners’ stories… Mountainous and breath-taking sceneries; Nepal is definitely a place where mountain lovers and avid trekkers flock to. But on the flip side, places of devastation are only what the locals can seek refuge in. Backward living conditions and a lack of a stable political constitution meant that Nepal is not an ideal plac

Journeying in Prayer with Partners

This is a story of the journey of Sandy’s prayer coordinators. Sandy is a partner of Interserve Singapore who serves in Central Asia. Names of our partners have been changed for security reasons. We met on a warm Sunday afternoon. Rachel was in a bright-coloured dress and Anthony in his casual best. Both are attending Bukit Panjang Methodist Church. Rachel was originally from Calvary Chapel, the church that Sandy introduced her to after they first met in school. Their friendship grew through the fellowship in church. Through Sandy, Rachel also learnt more about missions, and her first missions trip was to Cambodia. Likewise, Anthony was involved in missions and it was on a trip that he first

Praying through the Psalms • Praying for Mission

Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs of praise. Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. (James 5:13–16) In the bible, God speaks to us through many different genres. Through the poetry of the Psalms, we see how God is with us in the thick of confusion. Here, we imagine

INTERCESSION - An urgent, passionate and intelligent challenge!

Harvest time is an urgent season. Farmers know they have only a specific limited period to bring in all the harvest. After the harvest, the rain may come. Or the winter may set in quick. The fruits cannot wait. When overripe they drop and are damaged. Creatures will swarm and consume them. Bats, flies, birds, and rats... all kinds will go for the fruits! Jesus instructed his disciples to “ask the Lord of the Harvest therefore to send out workers into his harvest field.” (Matthew 9:38) Following this, Jesus sent his disciples out to preach to all the villages in Israel. He equipped them with authority to heal and drive out evil spirits. The harvest He saw was a “harassed and helpless” people

First Line of Support: Our prayers and intercession

“A shepherd cares for a (usually) small group. An apostle launches dozens, hundreds or thousands of new communities of Christ-followers. The church today is flooded with leaders who fit the shepherd model, caring for people who are already assembled, managing what’s been built and helping to meet people’s needs. But we have far too few leaders who have the spiritual gift of apostleship.” – Carey Nieuwhof The great Apostle Paul was formerly what we would have called a terrorist by his former name Saul. His ministry was birthed by being sent out from the church at Antioch. His sending in the first century A.D. was undergirded by the prophets and teachers in Antioch who were ministering to th
