Because His Mercies Are New Every Morning and Great Is His Faithfulness
Another year is drawing to a close! And 2017 has been another full and fulfilling year.
In the past newsletters, I have written much about the work of the ministry. For this newsletter, I have decided to dedicate this update to my wife and children who have stood by me, releasing me to do what the Lord has assigned to me through Archippus Awakening. There are many times when they have had to put up with my heavy ministry schedule, missing me at home and at our home church. With love, understanding and much sacrifice, they have supported me through another year. I give thanks and praise to the Lord for Serene and our children.
Hereunder is a gallery of selected pictures of the Lim Tribe. Whenever possible, we try our best to spend time together, creating memories that we will cherish and look back on. Each child is so precious and special, gifted by the Lord in different fields and talents.
Celebrate with us – a not-so-normal family in Singapore! Few understand the dynamics of a family our size, but we have grown to love and enjoy one another (however crowded and noisy!). As homeschoolers, we have had to answer the same ol’ questions over and over and over again. I suppose the greatest perk is that we get to go where we want when it’s off-peak! As a ministry family, we get to serve together. It’s a great way to expose the children to learn and see that the Body of Christ and the Kingdom of God is much bigger than what we experience in the local church. And when they see me preaching, teaching and pressing on even when I am tired and stretched, my prayer is that they have a glimpse of what it means to love and serve Jesus – ministry may be tough, but Jesus is worthy of it all!
Enjoy our family moments with us …
I hope you enjoyed this little photo update of the Lim Tribe. Thank you for always praying for me, for Serene and for our seven children. As much as I want to excel in my service unto the Lord through Archippus Awakening, I am well aware of my kingdom assignments as husband and father in my marriage and family.
It is not easy, and Serene and I have had our fair share of debates, dialogues and discussions on what the right balance is and how best to achieve it. Many have looked at us and think that we possess some super power or super faith. We wish. The truth is, we lean on and rest in the Lord’s grace over and over again. We are weak but He is strong. We fail and He picks up again and again. With seven children, we are still trying to figure out what parenting is all about. We mess up big time, but we know that in the end, God is still faithful.
Thank you for journeying with us, for rejoicing with us, and for cheering us on. Your love, prayers and support continue to be a source of encouragement for us. We thank and praise God for you. We trust that you would have had a great 2017 too. And we pray that you will enter into all that the Lord has prepared for you in 2018! I know the Lim Tribe is looking forward to another year of great adventures and great exploits with our great God!
