    Lovely service. South East Asia must be one of the most cosmopolitan provinces and one of the most wide-ranging. In addition to its four dioceses in Malaysia/Singapore, its chaplaincies and deaneries stretch from the Himalayas to the Pacific and from Indo-China to the borders of China, and has exerted a friendly and encouraging influence on the recovering church in China. Not content with planting seeds across Asia, it has sent missionaries out across the world, one of whom, answering the call of God as a young man, is now bishop of Bolivia. It is not huge numerically, but it is strong theologically and evangelistically, and punches well above its weight.

    I have followed Bishop Moon Hing’s wonderful and humorous youtube broadcasts for a few years, and he has been a pioneer in encouraging West Malaysia to commit to training in evangelism and discipleship. I am sure he will promote the same in his ministry as Archbishop. Exciting times for the province and I wish Archbishop Moon Hing well and pray for his ministry and the growth of all the seeds being planted in what is also one of the most challenging regions for Christians to witness in.
