Sightseeing in Singapore

People might wonder what the life of a missionary is like and assume there must be to it an air of the romantic or exotic.  Well, we have had our share of “exotic” scents (usually sewage) and tropical breezes (laden by smog.)  But, really our life would be best described as an adventure (meaning not […]
