The beginning of March found us in Seremban, where Colin taught seminars on the book of Job on the Saturday and preached in Full Gospel Tabernacle on the Sunday morning and at their outreach church in Seremban 2 in the evening.
On Monday 8th Colin commenced a series of five sessions of teaching on Principles of Leadership at New Life Restoration Centre in Petaling Jaya. On 10th the venue for preaching was St. Mary’s Anglican Cathedral in Kuala Lumpur. After the meeting, a man named Wee Kim Chua came forward to introduce himself. When we started the pioneer church, Lifeline Assembly, in 1978, the meetings for the first few weeks were held in his home. It was a thrill to meet him after more than thirty years. On 11th and 12th March Colin taught at Tung Ling Seminary. On Saturday 13th he taught seminars on Romans at SS Methodist Church and preached at their Sunday morning service on 14th. That evening he spoke at a men’s fellowship at City Revival Church. Monday to Wednesday was spent teaching again in Tung Ling Seminary. On the Monday evening the series on Principles of Leadership continued and on the Wednesday evening it was back to St. Mary’s.
From 19th to 29th we were in Perth, Western Australia where we had the privilege of ministering in Grace City Church and at a missions conference in Champion Lakes Church. We also met up with a lot of old friends, including Bob and Margaret Stevenson. It was in one of their missionary meetings way back in 1973 that we first received our call to Malaysia.
When we got back to Malaysia we discovered that our home had been burgled (for the second time) and several items, including Julia’s netbook computer, had been stolen.

The day after our return home our family (daughters Julia and Andrea, and a friend, Carolyn, granddaughter Charlotte, and grandson Rhys, began arriving in ones and twos and for the next two weeks (30 March – 12 April) we had a great family holiday together, visiting Port Dickson, Kuantan, Penang and Langkawi Island.

While they were here Colin still found time to speak at the Easter morning service in Full Gospel Tabernacle and to the church leaders at the Evangelical Charismatic Churches of Malaysia fellowship. He also flew to Kuala Terengganu to conduct a memorial service.
For the rest of April we had meetings at New Life Restoration Centre, Kota Kemuning, Full Gospel Assembly School of Christian Education, Full Gospel Tabernacle in Miri, Sarawak, more teaching at New life Restoration Centre, and speaking at First Assembly of God in Penang. While we were in Penang we also got to visit our very dear friend, Dr Joy Seevaratnam who is now wheelchair bound. We used to minister in his home fellowship in Kuala Lumpur over 30 years ago.
