Rental Accommodation Sought.
Timothy Lim, a Presbyterian Minister, is arriving mid June, with
his wife and 3 sons, to take up a position at Carey Baptist
College as Director of their Chinese Programme. Originally from
Singapore, he has been for 8 years in the USA. They are keen to
get into a good primary and college school zone, and are looking
for a 3-4 bedroom house. The catch is that his housing allowance
is not large and they can only stretch to $380-$450 pw rental.
Highly recommended by Dr Mark Johnson of KCML who thinks
the family would be an asset to any congregation they linked to.
If you can help please contact Tim directly +65-878 33657 or

their hand up to help with projects that arise or
to oversee a small area to help with the running

day to day basis but would love someone not
afraid to join sub-committees when big projects
come up like the refurbishment of a unit.
