I prepared this letter, but everyday I pray that I will never have the chance to use it. Unfortunately, the day has come for me to submit it. 🙁

Re: Withdrawal from City Harvest Bible Training Centre (CHBTC) 2008
I am Timothy Wong (SOT082231) from SOT Team 15. It is under unfortunate circumstances that I have to inform you that I am unable to continue my studies at CHBTC due to my National Service enlistment on 10 July 2008 despite submitting 3 letters of appeal to Mindef.
This week will be my final week in SOT. I have made arrangements to follow Pastor Kong to the Taiwan Youth Camp on 1 to 7 July. As my enlistment is on 10 July, I would like to take the week of 23 to 30 June off to spend more time with my family and friends. Hence, I would like to inform you that I would be unable to continue my journey with the rest of the school from 22 June onwards.
For the past 2 months in SOT, I have been greatly impacted by the daily encounters with God and it has certainly brought my life up another level. The sessions on Home Cell Group Leadership have given me the confidence to effectively lead a cell group meeting. The lessons on the Gifts of the Holy Spirit have brought me on a closer relationship with the Holy Spirit. My Spirit has been empowered and charged!
I would like to thank all staff and lecturers in CHBTC for providing the students with such great opportunities to learn and practice. God has been very real in my life. Thank you!
Yours for Revival,
