ASEAN celebrated its 50th anniversary last year and Singapore takes the chairmanship in 2018.
Whether you have a view about ASEAN or not, this talk hopes to make sense of the importance and value of Singapore's neighbours.
We cannot be an island focused on ourselves and our own interests. We live in a geographic location where our lives are connected and integrated with over 640 million people of very diverse cultures, language and thinking. It was the security and economic circumstances of the day that has been the basis of this association.
The Chinese Evangelist John Sung had conducted evangelistic meetings from 1935-39 in various parts of South East and saw that prayer would be the work needed to finish the task he began when he called the Chinese people in South East Asia to repent and turn to the Lord. This was addressed specifically to the Singapore believers.
We who are God's people must seek to have God's perspective of this association, appreciate what God has done and look into the future of ASEAN where we in Singapore have much to 'GIVE'.

The gospel came to her father's household when John Sung preached at Telok Ayer Chinese Methodist Church in 1935. Her grandfather, like many migrant Chinese heard from John Sung personally.
An awakening came to her that led her to research her own heritage when the Holy Spirit reminded her of the miraculous death-bed conversion of her late grandfather, 50 years after he heard the gospel through Sung San Chieh ( John Sung ).
She worships at St Andrew's Cathedral Mandarin Congregation. She has an intercessory burden for Singapore since the 1990s
