AS we said good bye to 2014, we are indirectly ushering in 2015.

According to the IMF’s October 2014 update of its analysis of the Asia-Pacific region, Asia’s near-term growth prospects remain solid, in contrast to downward revisions for other regions. Despite a mild slowdown earlier this year, the Asian economies are expected to grow 5.5 percent in 2014 and 2015, broadly sustaining the pace of the last two years. With some exceptions, the inflation outlook should remain benign across most of the region.
I wish to congratulate our twenty or so newly graduated medical officers from Cuba (SST.5640) for having gone through the challenge of studying for six years or so in a far away country with a totally different language and communist environment.

Once again, I would like to welcome you to our continuing discussion on the ‘One Another’ sayings in the New Testament. This week we are looking at the fourteenth of the ‘One Another’ sayings in the New Testament “Submit to One Another” (Ephesians 5:21).

If strict discipline is necessary in arts and athletics, how can we expect to be advanced Christians and stay in kindergarten?”
Welcome to our ongoing discussion on the ‘One another’ series in the New Testament.This week we will look at the twelve of the ‘one another’ sayings and that is to “pray for one another” (James 5:16). I believe that you have been blessed and encouraged by what we have already looked at in this series.
