One of the sessions on the book of Jeremiah at the school in Singapore.
We made it home to Israel this morning. It is always good to land at Ben Gurion airport! The trip to Singapore was such a blessing and very fruitful. We arrived on Wednesday and had 2 meetings that day and evening. We met with a pastor of a large congregation and we spoke about how we can work together to further the Gospel.
Over the course of Thursday, Friday and Saturday, we met with people from Singapore, China, Malaysia and Indonesia about using Baruch’s teaching in their theological schools. The organization Baruch taught for this trip has schools in 10 different countries, 9 of them are in Asia and 1 is in Africa. Some of the countries we cannot go to since we are Israeli citizens, but they are very anxious for us to come to the other countries for Baruch to teach.
We praise G-d for the opportunity to share sound Bible teaching around the world. Being able to equip Bible students will multiply the results, as they in the future reach many more people with their own ministries.
Views from our trip: Hong Kong and Singapore.
While in Singapore, we also visited one of the synagogues and learned more about the Jewish community there. We learned that the Jewish community formed in the 1800s from Baghdad Jews who fled persecution from the Ottoman empire. Today, there are approximately 2,500 Jews living in Singapore.
Here are pictures from inside the synagogue and outside of the Jewish community center:
The Jewish Community Center is next to the synagogue. The exterior of the synagogue was covered with scaffolding due to renovations. Below are pictures of the Bet HaMidrash which is housed inside the Community Center.
