Missions Committee

A new LPPC Missions Committee was formed this year in 2016. Our mandate is to educate church members on missions and promote active involvement by all members in missions and evangelism, with the goal of sending forth missionaries from LPPC. The committee is made of the following people (some of whom you might already know!). We hope that you will join us in our goal and mission and look forward to serving you!


LIVING THE MISSION - Living Praise for God's Mission

As we see the events happening around us in the world today (incidents of wars, famines, pestilences and earthquakes), we must heed the warning given by Jesus in Matthew 24:4-8, that we are living in the end times. The task of world evangelization is never more urgent than now. There are still many places in the world where the gospel has not been preached and where no believers can be found.

In Matthew 9:37-38, Jesus said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the labourers are few. Therefore, pray the Lord of the harvest to send out labourers into His harvest.” The harvest belongs to our Lord Jesus Christ. We are merely labourers carrying out the commands of our Lord. Will you rise up to the call and go forth to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ?

Below are some of the testimonies from our very own in LP.

These are people who have been to short overseas missions trip, read about their experiences and if you want to find out more, why not approach them on Sunday! Or better still join them for their next mission trip!

Jessie Wong
This was my 2nd year to Cambodia Kampongsom Bible School (KBS). I looked forward to this trip and was filled with much excitement and anticipation of how we can serve God through this trip. I led a team of six members – Anthea, Kim Tiang, Kim Lee, Naomi, Yee Tiong and Yok Song. Our purpose for this trip is to train and equip the theological students in children’s programme at the Kampongsom Bible School (KBS). This is the first time that we have five Sunday School teachers who volunteered to come for this trip. God is good and faithful, He knows what we need and who to send for this mission trip.

When we reached KBS on the first day, it was so heart-warming to see familiar faces and so many young senior students. They were so enthusiastic, cheerful and willing to learn. They were good at leading songs and just sang from the bottom of their hearts in worshipping God. We arranged a time slot for them to lead worship for all the programmes. Kim Tiang taught them two new songs and they were able to learn them within a short time. They enjoyed the singing and were doing the actions. What a privilege it was for me to be part of this experience. Overall, I am thankful to God for such good team spirit, much laughter, teasing, food and fellowship with one another. Praise and thanks be to God!

Naomi
I feel encouraged by the Komponsom Bible School students because they desire to know more about the bible, to improve in English and to teach people about God after their graduate. They were also eager to learn more about the children’s ministry which we shared with them. Although some of them face challenges understanding English fully or may not feel called to deal with children, it was heartening to see them working tirelessly and eagerly with us to run a programme for the village children at the Smach Daeng church. Overall, I enjoyed the mission trip even though I felt I contributed only in a small way.

Sue Kim Lee
For two years we had planned a 2-day training programme for the Komponsom Bible School (KBS) students. The schedule left us with very little time to get to know the students on a personal level.

Yet I was very impressed and encouraged by the group of seven students whom Naomi & I worked with on a bible story. I thank God for His mercy and grace in giving us very responsive and interested students who enjoyed the activities with the children at Smech Daeng Church. Although there were heavy rains and a flood at the village church, it happened after the programme was over. It has been a long time since I walked in ankle-deep water, and so it was a fun experience for me. I am thankful God for the bonus!

Anthea Gan
Why did I go for this year’s mission trip to Cambodia? Those who are familiar with me will know that I have a pretty tight work schedule. But I went to keep a promise I made last year. And I must say I did not regret fulfilling it.

The joy I saw in the Komponsom Bible School students (aged 15 to 28), despite their difficult and diverse backgrounds, brought me much encouragement. I wish to share what God has shown me through them in the following acronym for Kampongsom. I hope that you will share in this joy with me and reflect on the greatness of our Almighty God.

* K – Keen Interest in learning / kindness in receiving
* A – Awesome attitude that focuses on wanting to serve God
* M – Motivated to lead praises to God and wanting to sing cheerfully for Him
* P – Passionate in helping to meet the needs of each other
* O – Ordinary men and women in God’s extraordinary call to spread the gospel
* N – Never give up determination
* G – Gratitude to God and to people around them
* S – Son of God, Jesus is placed in the center of their lives
* O – Overcoming their fear of not able to handle young children
* M – Mercy and grace of God seen bestowed in their lives from the personal life stories they shared with us during our time spent with them.

Lastly, coming out from this trip, I would like to encourage anyone considering short-term mission trips – not to hesitate. For no matter how busy or inadequate we think we may be, if we wholeheartedly place our trust in God, He will certainly take care of our concerns, worries and anxieties in all we do or say.


Thanksgiving and Prayer Requests from Elvira Tan (who is in Japan on a one year OMF missions program).

  • Pray that God will help the team not be desensitized to people’s rejection of the gospel or deem it as a given, but to be saddened by it and driven to prayer!
  • Pray for some of the churches in the Hokkaido area. Pray for Wakaba church, whose Pastor was recently dismissed. In a culture that finds it hard to receive and give grace and forgiveness, pray that just as the church members were recipients of grace and forgiveness, that they may learn to extend it to others.
  • Pray for the fmZERO team as we plan more concretely what we will do in the new school year (starting April). Pray for creativity in how to reach more students.
