    I was so excited to glance through the website of Union Church, so dear to my heart which flashed so many and so much fond memories of my shepherdship of the church for over seven years. Even after many years apart, the familiar faces of congregation, dynamic leadership and homely pastoral care brings nostalgic feeling.
    It is heartening to see the overwhelming growth and dedicated contemporary young generation of church leadership taking ahead the Church into the 21st century, with passion for lost souls and spiritual growth of the Church.
    My prayers and best wishes are always with all of you my brothers and sisters.
