新加坡，这一次怎么那么特别？ Singapore, why is it so special this time?
In early May, I was invited to perform and evangelise by Lighthouse Evangelism Singapore. I have been to Lighthouse many times and of course it was very special and I was blessed each time, but amazingly somehow this time it was even more special! Reason being right after my first day of ministering till at least two weeks after the whole trip had ended, I was receiving continuously messages and mails from many brothers and sisters to encourage and thank me. This has never happened in all the years of me ministering outside…
God’s timing is forever the most accurate because He knew at that time I needed a lot of encouragement, and I needed His strength to serve. What actually happened was upon the second day of ministering at Lighthouse, a spiritual battle broke out against me as well. The enemy tried to disrupt my thoughts and destroy my ministry and stopped my schedule prematurely. The battle continued till only a few days ago when it started to tone down, no wonder during that period of time mails from Singapore kept pouring in daily to encourage and comfort me!
And this is why Singapore is so special this time!
An interesting this time was this time they also invited me to speak in their English Sunday services. A Chinese church pastor who sings Hokkien songs preaching English sermons, isn’t that very special?
Below is the promotional poster they did using the photograph they took of me when I visited their church several years ago, the team that went with me kept laughing and asking me why was it so…???
Looking closely, I found it very funny too myself…
Within a few short years, a person can undergo a lot of changes. This time I came with this image, and when I walked past some people who knew me before, they actually could not recognise me, haha!
I think probably there are really some differences, dressing, hairstyle, body shape etc…?
我真的要感谢灯塔的主任牧师，Pastor Rony Tan，那么款待我。。。
I must really thank Lighthouse Senior Pastor, Pastor Rony Tan for his great hospitality…
Some brothers etc who were assigned to “take care” of me…
Brothers and sisters who patiently waited before the meeting started…
Of course the one who deserves the most thanks is my God who is so willing to use an unworthy vessel like me, may His name receive all the glory forevermore…
