The great composer, Johann Sebastian Bach penned these three letters (S.D.G.) above all the masterpieces he wrote. As most Believers do know, 'Soli Deo Gloria' in Latin translates to, 'To God Alone be the Glory'. What a wonderful way to acknowledge the fact that the source to his great talent came from The Almighty Lord God Most High and furthermore to offer the first place (i.e. above the score) to the Provider and Giver of his extraordinary skill in the art of composing evocative and glorious sounds. And we who know our scriptures are well familiar that our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ had set this example for us abide in. Not all of possess extraordinary skills as Bach did, but nonetheless SDG should be the essence of our daily living. Do it, and pretty soon onward, you will come to realize that you get better and better in whatever you do.

J.O.Y., J.O.Y., this must surely be,
Jesus first! Yourselves last! And Others in between! 
(A kindergarten chorus of yesteryears still unforgotten)  

2012 Half Years Report: January to June
As was to be expected, after the academic year end of PNG School, we were down in numbers but never down at heart, and once again very pleased to report that we did not have to shut down as in earlier times. The past 3-4 years have revealed that there are a number of us who desire to attend church regularly. This is not say that we feel regular church attendance is our passport to Salvation, Nevertheless, in knowing of the hurdles that some of our regular attendees face to be on time for church, we thank The Lord for the motivation in their hearts.

There was the occasional surprise put in for us by the 2011 Class 12 students. The twins, Tenzing Norzom and Tenzing Choying, Achyong, Bhawana, Anusa and Rosna showed up one Sunday with some of them taking the opportunity to conduct and do the Bible readings. At another Sunday, we had Pratima and Sabnam with us. They told us that they wouldn't be able to attend Church once their coaching classes began.  
Nerolyne Subba who was the Hostel Vice Captain in 2010 and now an MBBS undergrad at SMIMS, comes to fellowship often and ever willing to volunteer at any task offered.

With no song practices and no preparations for the conductors, the winter break for the students offers just the right opportunity for the coach to learn more new hymns and CCM songs for the coming year. And sure as can be expected, The Lord God Almighty has guided His servant into another set of songs that the children will enjoy to learn and sing - and to lift high, The Name of Our Lord God Almighty. Hallelujah!
