Pastor Peter Leong
May the peace and joy of Christ be with you. It gives me great joy on the occasion of your 60th birthday and the 35th anniversary of your ministries to the Lord’s service to send you congratulations from the Baptist World Alliance.
I remember well your leadership when you were serving in Hong Kong, and thank God for the way he has led you over these years.
We appreciate your encouragement and support of the Baptist World Alliance over the years and your presence in England at the Centennial Congress was greatly appreciated.
Please accept this letter as a sign of our love and appreciation for you. May the peace and joy of Christ continue to encourage you in your ministry.
Thank you and God bless you.
Yours faithfully in Christ,
Baptist General Convention of Texas

Southwest Chinese Baptist Church
Dear Pastor Leong :
“I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. “ Phil. 1: 3-6
Congratulation on the occasion of your 60th birthday and on 35 years of ministry in the Lord’s service! This is a great time of celebration for you and your church not only as you rejoice in service but also in the way God has blessed your church.
Pastor Leong, you have touched the hearts of so many by the quality of your work and by your authentic Christian love. At this time you are able to celebrate the many people God has put in your path. Your leadership and ministry through the years is a demonstration of God’s love and presence with them. ½ Dr. Wade
You lift up the right themes, the right principles, and the right gospel . Many have been blessed because of your shepherd’s heart and your faithfulness in His service. Your participation in the life of our Baptist General Convention of Texas has been invaluable. When I think of you I think of these words in Titus: “You must hold firmly to the trustworthy message as it has been taught, so that you can encourage others by sound doctrine and refute those who oppose it.”(Titus1:9) You have always done this.
As pastor, encourager and leader you have earned the respect of all those in the sphere of your ministry. Take great delight in that, Peter, and know that only eternity will be able to measure the good God has given you to do.
On behalf of the larger Texas Baptist family represented by the Baptist General Convention of Texas, thank you for your partnership in the gospel over these years as you truly are the : Presence of Christ in your world.”
Thank you for always being faithful to His call.

Dear Pastor Peter,
This is such a wonderful event celebrating your 60 years of life. I have known you for a third of that time (but I cannot say what percentage it is of my life since I don’t want to give away my age).? But for the undisclosed percentage it is, you have changed my life.
I have told you so many times how invaluable you have been to me personally and to our work in Texas. You have saved me from myself and my lack of Chinese cultural knowledge with your wise counsel. You have helped me grow in so many ways. I cherish your wisdom and the humble way in which you work with so many different people. I value your friendship so very much. One of the most recent memories I have is of your gracious hosting of my 20 year anniversary. It was such a special time for me and your message to me was both challenging and funny. I will never forget it or your part in It.? I pray for you all the best, but mostly that your walk with the Lord will grow ever sweeter with each passing day. Happy Birthday!
overflows with a heart of service to the Lord.
I have never known someone
who offers so much of themselves.
has become a father in the ministry,
an example of love for people,
and a friend in life.
I am happy to celebrate this beautiful day with his church and family

The Rev. Peter Tuck Soon Leong
SOUTHEST CHINESE BAPTIST CHURCH
Dear beloved Friend, Peter Leong :
I wish to congratulate you upon this special occasion of the 35/60 Celebration of your life and Ministry. My intent to be with you was pure and scheduled, but due to an unavoidable situation, I cannot. However, that does not diminish this celebration nor my admiration for you. It saddens me that I am not in attendance.
Peter, you are a cherished friend. You have given me the privilege on two occasions to share ministry with you and the fine people of Southwest Chinese Baptist Church. I discovered a vibrant congregation whose devotion to the Lord Jesus Christ is obvious to all.
Your devotion to your family, your congregation, Texas Baptists, and the whole body of Christ flow from your devotion to Christ.
In the words of St. Paul to his favorite congregation, “I thank my God every time I remember you “(Philippians 1:3, NIV) and to his favorite pastor , “do the work of an evangelist ”( 2 Timothy 4:5)
I trust the Lord will allow us to be together in the days ahead.
God bless you, your family, and your congregation !
Ted L. Elmore
Whenever I think of Pastor Peter Leong, I think of laughter.
Your amazing wit and smiling eyes
communicate no matter what language you are speaking!
I also love the fact
that you easily share yourself with others –
in Houston, in Texas, and all over the world.
Your support of Baptist causes is well known as well.
At one such event, you were generously capturing photos
of those in attendance
and you caught me in mid-laugh.
This photo has become one of my favorites!!
And Pastor Peter Leong,
you are one of my favorites as well!
Blessings on you and your continued work for the Kingdom.
