Quote to Consider
Herman Hoeksema: "... as we stand by the
gap caused by the fall and disobedience of man, and discover
that only Immanuel fits into the gap to save us, we know
that divine wisdom so designed all things that even our sin
must serve the purpose of opening the way for the coming of
the Son of God in the flesh. O the depth of riches both of
the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his
judgments, and his ways past finding out!" (The Triple
Knowledge, vol. 1, pp. 259-260).

labours in Hope PRC in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Pastor Lau’s
(of the ERC in Singapore) condition has deteriorated. This
week, he developed another infection in his lungs and his

remember Pastor Lau and his family in prayer.
