I took Daniel as my role model yet again, being a wiseman or advisor to several kings and potentates in his long service in the Babylonian and Persian kingdoms. Church members show love by offering their first fruits to their pastor (as priest in the house of the Lord). For the past week, I had durians, rambutans, darap, langsats, Thai longans, and many more local fruits.
Significantly, I have survived 8 months in this present ministry with two-thirds of the year gone. Another 3 months from now will bring us to December by which time I will have to make a decision what to do for 2016. The first day of September also brings some relief in terms of exciting political happenings in Singapore. It is Nomination Day. In 2011, I watched many speeches live on Nomination Day with Nicole Seah's 4 minute speech being the highlight. It is good for her to take time out to establish herself in her career for when the Election comes round next time, she will still be in her early 30s but with a decade long working experience behind her. Rumours that Nicole could be joining WP is also good news, if only to provide WP a chance of grabbing more seats in the next GE in 2019 or 2020.
