I requested prayer against the high levels of haze for Singapore.
The Lord answered our prayers and gave us beautiful sunshine the very next day beyond expectations and surprise of everyone even the weather authorities. Please see original blog above and updates.
For several days now we have enjoyed low levels of haze and sunshine and yesterday the Lord gave us another surprise with a storm AND HAILSTONES!!!!
“Residents in western Singapore reported seeing hail falling from the skies at about 3pm on Tuesday. Heavy rain, accompanied by gusty winds, started around 3pm in areas including Jurong and Bukit Batok

While hail storms are not common in the tropics, it is not the first time that Singapore has seen hail.
According to the NEA, hailstones last rained over the central part of Singapore on 27 March 2008.
The National Environment Agency (NEA) said in its daily media conference that the 24-hour PSI forecast for Wednesday (26 June) is expected to be in the moderate band of 51-100. The forecast for the PM2.5 level remain elevated in the unhealthy range, thus the health advisory will follow that of the “Unhealthy” band of PSI 101-200. This means that healthy people should still minimise prolonged or strenuous outdoor physical activity while those who suffer from chronic lung and heart problems should wear an N95 mask when outdoors.
NEA added that rainfall is expected for the next few days in the afternoons. Praise the Lord for respite.

Truly thankful the Lord gives us cheer in the form of surprises.
Have you experienced a surprise from the Lord? Think! perhaps you were not looking out for one.
Abraham received a surprise when the Lord gave him a sacrifice candidate in the bush instead of his son Isaac.
The three Hebrew children were surprised by one like unto the Son of Man while they were in the fiery furnace.
The angel of the Lord appeared to Paul and Silas and freed them from prison – wasn’t it a surprise??
The Lord loves to give good things to His people. Don’t you agree – even in surprises?
“If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!” Matthew 7:11
WE THANK YOU LORD JESUS! Sing with us!
