GimLam Yeo - Elder

Winnie and Gim came from Singapore 20 years ago and have since then called Penno Baps their church family. They love Jesus and his people. Winnie retired from corporate work to give God the second half of her life to work in the church. She loves organising people and things but her greatest passion is connecting with people, speaking God’s truth into their lives and praying with them. Her favourite verse is Psalm 46:10 “Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”
