25th Anniversary Thanksgiving Service
My students ran the service. My good friend, the former Mayor of KK who is now the Ranau's assemblyman was one of the earliest to turn up and after dinner fellowship we started the thanksgiving service at 8pm and ended at 9.45pm. We chatted and took photos and left for home at about 10.30pm. My lawyer friend of 31 years and his wife also came. I basically invited about 30 people, most of whom have been my close associates in ministry, at the Likas church where I served as pastor and also District Superintendent. My Deputy DS at that time also came. My good friend who was involved in the building of the Ministry Centre (the venue of the service) also came. I thanked them all for your love and support for me. A few asked me where I would be going as 2020 is just around the corner and whether I have received an appointment for ministry. Yes, I told them but I could not announce it at that time as I was still praying over it and God willing, by the end of the week, a decision will be forthcoming. The double blessing on Sunday was that I also preached at my home church on the Sunday morning service on "Doing the will of God" based on 1 John 2:7-17 about loving our brothers, abiding in the light and that for those who do the will of God, they will live forever.
