Delegations to Myanmar and the CERC in Singapore This Week - Feb.18, 2016

Myanmar mapThe Council of Hope PRC (Walker, MI) is once again sending an elder/deacon delegation to Myanmar. From a recent bulletin we learn of these details:

The Lord willing, Elder Dave Jessup and Deacon Jonathon Kamps will visit Myanmar from February 18 to March 1.  During the trip Rev. Titus’ church in Yangon will host a week-long gathering of thirty-seven men from various parts of the country to discuss the instituted church and the necessity of membership in a true church, as well as the special offices and their functions. Our delegation also plans to spend time with the council from the Yangon congregation (Rev. Titus, Elder Soe Thein, and Deacon Timothy) to discuss various parts of the church order, review the budget the council has developed (their first ever), follow up on questions from previous trips, and discuss any new questions or topics they have.

And the Contact Committee of the PRC is also sending a delegation to our sister-church in Singapore to conduct the annual church visitation. That delegation also leaves this week. From Grace PRC's bulletin we learn more:

Rev. Ken & Pat Koole and Mr. Dave & Mary Kregel will be in Singapore over the Sundays of February 21 and 28. Rev. Koole and Elder Kregel will conduct church visitation with CERC’s Session while they are here, and Rev. Koole will preach a couple of services for CERC.
