04/05/2007: "PLEASE PRAY FOR OUR TRIP"
Please pray for our trip to the orphanage in Timor from April 7th to April 30th.
Tomorrow I will be going back to Singapore from Los Angeles doing my flying duty. I will be arriving on Apr 7th morning.The moment I am returning in Singapore I will be going to Timor via Jakarta on that afternoon. From Jakarta Peggy ( my dear wife) and I will be bringing our 2nd mobile library by road to Surabaya ( some 26 hours of driving) then we will send the car by a ferry to Timor ( Kupang) which will take about 3 or 4 days trip.
From Surabaya we will be going to Bali for 2 days to meet up our friend Arnold Muti and to learn from him about a potential fruit trees which we might be able to be farmed at our farm in Timor. Only from Bali we will then go to Timor for 3 weeks , that is when my annual leave finishes. At the orphanage we are currently having a big project of building 2 rooms for the growing orphans. Each room will be 6×24 meters while the class room is 6 x10 meters. The class room will be a multy purpose place for us to conduct a class and mamy other activities such as vocational matters and to play as well. For start a table tennis will be a great thing to have. But to utilise it we must wait till the building is done .
During this trip a singaporean couple couple will be joining us from the 14th onwards. They said that they can not wait to make their hands dirty with the work for the orphanage ( Amy and her husband). A great joy last night from my siblings which they said that my older sister, my older brother and my sister in law will also be coming to help. My niece, her husband and their children might be coming along as well. With extra help on handling the little orphans I can consentrate more on the building and other matters. Thank God for sending me the needed help when we needing them. Any of you who want to come are welcome ( there will be no 5 stars hotel for you because we do not have it but we can give you “ALL STARS” hotel , a place where you can see all the stars at night). So family and friends if you want to go some where and you do not have a place to go to , you are having our advance welcome now.
Have a blessed day to All.
