I read a message sent from my friend and colleague, Dr. Ivor Poobalan. Ivor who serves as the Principal of the Colombo Bible College. I was encouraged by his sentiment, so I forwarded it to several friends, including Joe Handley. As a faculty member of Asian Access, Joe asked me to post this for the A2 Community. May it encourage you to seize the moment.

poobalan ivorFriends,

We are confined but not disabled. Stripped of our manic busyness but not disengaged from our thinking and creativity.
Distanced socially but not disconnected.
In the middle of the first pandemic in our lifetime, what an opportunity:
To rest and relax
To reflect on our own thoughts and feelings
To listen to the beautiful sound of silence
To interact with and appreciate the few people with whom 80% of our life is shared
To read and meditate on larger sections of the Scriptures
To write down what we see and think and feel in posts, blogs, journalling, poems, songs, and reports.
To hear what the Spirit is saying to the Church
To encounter God and draw nearer to him in continual thankfulness, penitence and praise.
This is a unique moment. Such an opportunity might never be experienced by us again.
We can mourn and grumble about every little way that it has limited our lifestyle, or we can seize the fresh opportunities it has presented to us:
To stop
To change
To learn
To grow
To come out of it wiser, healthier, stronger.
Let's choose the latter; let's seize the moment!

Dr. Ivor Poobalan
Principal of the Colombo Bible College


I trust that this is an encouraging message for you during this current trial. May God be with you and strengthen you, and may we rise up and respond to this challenge in God-honoring ways.


Richard Brohier
Asian Access Faculty
