Apart from attending SBL International Meeting in Auckland, I also took the opportunity to catch up with friends who live in the City of Sails as well. It was a great joy to meet up with Paul and Robert from Malaysia last night. Paul moved to Auckland about 1.5 years ago to pastor Kelston Community Church.
Needless to say, our fellowship was over dinner at a Malaysian restaurant in Auckland. Just look at the amount of food we had!
Paul and Robert also introduced me to Dr Max Liddle. Max has been a missionary to India and taught at Bible College of New Zealand. Max is very generous to donate 10 boxes of books from his personal library to STM library. Thanks, Max, for those books which we truly appreciate and we promise you that we will take good care of them.
I have just finished repacking the books donated by Max, waiting to be shipped to STM by next week.
