‘My Father’s Business’ 2017: Building a school in Timor-Leste

Jun 2017    

Two years ago, the “My Father’s Business” Banquet organised by the Methodist Missions Society (MMS) raised funds for building projects in Nepal, Thailand, East Asia and Laos, enabling continued growth in education, training, outreach and church ministry.

This year, MMS once again calls on your generosity in order to make The Methodist School in Dili, Timor-Leste a reality for up to 700 students from local families. Students from poor families will be eligible for financial support through the MMS Student Sponsorship Scheme (SSS).

Over the years, Christian education has unlocked the immense potential of many young lives, transforming them for the better and equipping them to serve their communities. This has especially held true in war-torn nations. The establishing of mission schools is both part of our ‘Methodist DNA’ as well as a way in which we can carry out Christ’s Great Commission.

The Methodist School aims to provide quality education in a Christian environment. The curriculum will be based on Singapore standards and taught in English and Portuguese. In addition to a chapel, multi-purpose hall, and classrooms, boarding facilities will be provided for students from remote districts.

Construction of The Methodist School will take place over approximately 36 months, and is expected to be completed by 2020.

With your support, the MMS Banquet on 27 Aug 2017 will seek to raise S$5 million needed for the construction of The Methodist School – a much-needed service to the community in Dili that will lead to the betterment of lives, and enable many to come to know Christ, our living Redeemer.

Ways you can help:

  • Give a one-time or regular donation
  • Sponsor a table
  • Place an advertisement in the Banquet’s Souvenir Programme Booklet
  • Pray for the Banquet

*If you wish to support this initiative now or at the Banquet, kindly note that cheques should be made out to “The Methodist Church in Singapore (MMS)”.
