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.
