Things have gotten a little busier around here as I started a full-time job last week substitute teaching at a public high school. It’s almost like stepping back into full-time teaching, minus the form class and CCAs (and Homework Club that I actually miss). Hours are the same as Singapore schools. Some experiences are different … More Mid-March update: mostly revolving school
We had our first of 3 preview services last Saturday and it went great! Thank you all for praying. We spent the day rehearsing for worship, having lunch with our friends visiting from Indiana, making last changes to powerpoint slides, setting up equipment and refreshments for the service, and finally enjoying the service. It was … More First Preview Service!
With 2 days to go before before the first preview service of the Cornerstone Michigan, it’s all hands on deck at the Walcott house! Even the youngest one has been roped in to help! My parents in-law, sister-in-law and brother-in-law will also be helping at the service in different ways. Though there’s much to do … More 2 days away, all hands on deck!

The boys have made it through one semester of school; we had parent-teacher conferences with their teachers last Friday. They are doing well in school, scoring As in their subjects and making a lot of new friends. I think they are making such good friends that their social calendars keep us busy with playdates and … More My dream for what we can do for the youth in the community
In a previous post about Church, I was mulling over my thoughts of what the Church should be. There are many ways to describe the Church, and many things the Church should be, but the thought that kept coming to me is that we, who are the Church, are called to be ‘kings and priests’ … More What the Church should be as gleaned from the Tabernacle of Moses
We have the legal papers from the lawyer and Cornerstone Michigan now legally exists! We know it’s more than a piece of paper, and we’re excited to now proceed with the real thing – building relationships, building community, building a church. Prayers are appreciated as we begin to meet together to pray for the church. … More Cornerstone Michigan legally exists!
While our church back in Singapore is having her annual Big Family Day at Fort Canning Park, and I’m missing our church family, I decided to write something about church. We’ve been visiting different churches over the last few weeks to see how church services are like here, and learn what we can. Mostly we’ve … More On the church side…
Wow sorry it’s been a while since the last post. Not that not much has been going on. More like we’ve been busy. And one of the things we were busy with was moving into our own place! We are grateful that Cameron’s parents let us stay at their place for however long we needed. … More Moving Day!

We loved the nature walk along Clinton River. I have a special liking for this river that winds … More First Saturday of September – enjoying nature and a bit of Singapore
