Something historic is about to happen in my little country-island of Singapore (which is NOT part of China) on the 12th June 2018. President Trump will become the first sitting president of the USA to meet with a North Korean leader, Kim Jong Un in this case. That this meeting is actually on the verge … Continue reading TrumpKim Donuts – jumbled thoughts about a significant moment in world history
Two significant events took place this week. The first, a tragic mass shooting in Florida, which left 17 people dead. The second, the passing of Billy Graham, America's premier evangelist for the past century. There are so many talking points possible from these two perhaps seemingly unrelated events.

But if I were honest with myself, I knew that what has given way the most is my personal walk with the Lord. No, … Continue reading God’s encouraging word for me today!
