3 Days & 3 Nights
In the 2nd half of the year, I will focus of pastoring as I have no teaching duties in College this new Semester. It will be down to the hard grind of pastoral work, preparing candidates for baptism, classes starting next Sunday and I am also meeting those baptised last year for follow up classes to examine how their faith is after their baptism. I hope to hold seminars every alternate month, the next is early September and the last one in November. This is part of Christian education programme though our midweek Wednesday meeting is given to expository preaching from Paul's letter to the Colossians and on one of the Sunday services I am preaching through the Gospel of Matthew, now only half way through ch. 5 in 6 months. My Psalms lectionary is stuck in Psalm 7, though I have preached Psalm 8 early in the year in a meeting of cell group in Muruk district. As for my duties as chair of the pastors' fellowship I will be leading a team to Kudat, northern most city in Sabah which I have yet to visit. In August if all goes well, I will conduct a leadership seminar in Tawau 2nd week of August followed by three nights of revival meetings in Nahaba, a north west district at the end of August.
