I will be visiting Ipoh where I was born and went to school at ACS. I trained as a Normal School Teacher and was awarded a Crusade Scholarship by the Methodist Church. I earned my BA from Peabody Teachers’ College and later my Master of Divinity from Vanderbilt University Divinity School. I am a retired United Methodist Pastor.
My wife and I have served as United Methodist Missionaries from the US to Medan, Sumatra and Sibu, Sarawak. I am a member of the Dakotas Conference of the United Methodist Church and served parishes in both North and South Dakota.
I have been honoured with the following awards:
2006 North Dakota Conferences of Churches Ecumenical Award
2006 North Central Jurisdiction Asian American Award
2006 Sertoma Award for Community Service
2008 United Way Life Time of Caring Award
2009 Bismarck Tribune Award for Community Service
2009 Vantine Life Time Fellow Award (Kiwanis)
We will be in Ipoh from August 25 to August 28 and staying with my brother-in-law Mr P. Subramaniam (address given), phone 05 547 2441. He was a former principal of ACS.
I have tried to keep up with Ipoh news through your esteemed paper.
We leave for Malaysia and Singapore on August 11.
