St Andrew’s Cathedral
(Anniversary of the Signing of the Armistice on 11 Nov 1918 that ended World War I)
Lord of the nations, we remember before you with grateful hearts the men and women of our country who in
the day of decision ventured their all for the liberties we now enjoy. Help us to recognise the incalculable
debt we owe them, that we may strive in our own time to maintain true freedom in our nation and the world,
and to safeguard the peace which was won at so great a cost, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

In 1842, Maria Dyer, a British missionary with the
London Missionary Society started a boarding school
cum school for the less fortunate girls in Singapore. In
time, parents realised the importance of education for
girls, they sent their daughters to the boarding school.
The girls received an education and a Christian
upbringing. The needy girls received an education
with the aid from the Missionary Society and members
of the of St Andrew’s Cathedral. The ex-boarders have
written down their memories of St Margaret’s Boarding
School in gratitude to the English missionaries who
cared for them.

The Batam Medical Outreach is a bimonthly Cathedral
medical mission chiefly to the island of Batam and also
to other islands in the Riau Archipelago in Indonesia.
It aims to share the grace & love of God primarily by
providing much-needed basic healthcare to the rural
villages in these islands. Each mission extends over a
weekend and now comprises 4 medical teams serving
at different locations. In addition to this primary
healthcare, the teams also provide health education
and run a vibrant children’s ministry. We serve these
numerous locations in rotation. Though this is a
medical mission, there are many opportunities for
service for non-medical persons as well. We are
able to accommodate up to 100 volunteers on each
mission trip. However, do register early as the places
do fill up quickly. The cost per person is $100 ($80 for
day-trippers) and includes all meals, 2-way ferry, land
transport, hotel accommodation and travel insurance.

How to Know the Will of God
15/11 -29/11 (3 Sat 10am – 12pm @ PH A-B)
Pastor Alvin Toh
We face many difficult decisions in life: What work
should I be doing? How should I be investing my
resources? Which school should I put my children
in? Where should I live? The list goes on.
Most Christians are eager to know what God’s will
is and are earnestly seeking God’s direction for their
lives. Yet oftentimes we are at a loss on how to discern
God’s will. We are also frozen with fear thinking that
we might make a wrong decision and fall out of God’s
perfect will for us. What are some common pitfalls in
seeking to know God’s will? How can I best discern
God’s will for me? What biblical framework should
I have to guide my decision-making process? The
course will walk you through the ‘maze’ of learning to
discern God’s will for each one of us and what it takes
to make God-honoring decisions.

• Sudan (Africa)
Sudan has known only war for its entire modern
history. Violence is rife throughout Sudan, which is
regarded as one of the world’s least stable nations.
The prolonged conflict of war caused Christians to
scatter throughout the country and beyond. This
resulted churches being planted in places and among
peoples who were previously unreached. Now, many
of those won to Christ while displaced are returning
to their home areas with the goal of starting new
Christian numbers 1.6 million in 1980, now exceed
11 million – remarkable growth amid terrible
violence, warfare, persecution and even genocide.
One such example is the spiritual transformation of
the Dinka Bor people from animist to Christian. Pray
for provision of trained pastors to meet the needs and
pastoral care of the sheer number of young converts.
