Travels in Singapore and Malaysia

Last week I spent some time in Malaka, Malaysia, attending the annual Southeast Asian ATI Conference. We flew into the Singapore airport and I was immediately impressed with its beauty and cleanliness. I normally don’t take pictures of baggage claims but this one was amazing. The whole city was very clean!

Leaving Singapore, we drove across the bridge into Malaysia. What really impressed me about Malaysia was the miles and miles and miles of palm trees! Evidently, Malaysia is the second largest producer of palm oil in the world (next to Indonesia.)

We stopped for lunch at . . . McDonalds! The menu was similar to a U.S. McDonalds except you could shake up your french fries with a nice, zesty Asian-style spice. I thought it was pretty good!

Mr. and Mrs. Teh were wonderfully kind conference coordinators and made us feel right at home. There were many people from Malaysia, Singapore, and Indonesia at the conference and they were a great joy to meet and talk with. It was exciting to see families on the other side of the world who love the Lord and desire to serve Him with all their heart!

    I enjoyed this report, Robert. Thanks for sharing! Maybe some day I’ll get to travel to other countries spreading God’s truths, and get to enjoy the exoticism like you. 🙂

    Well, we must admit, that is the first time we have ever been so impressed by a ceiling!!! Definatly photo-worthy.

    What a blessing to travel to Malaysia with a team of Godly ambassedors to strengthen your message.

    Isn’t it amazing the things God has planned for us that we never imagined would occur?!!?

    Blessings to you as you dwell in the richness of your journey, Robert!
