國外佈道會 Out reach

本来都斯斯文文的,突然间。。。 Was gentle and sweet, then suddenly…

Sometimes seeing some well-taken photos of ourselves, to a lesser degree, it can encourage ourselves and give ourselves some self-confidence…


To a more serious degree, we can become self-obsessed, helplessly falling in love with ourselves…
Have you experienced that before? No? ?
That’s because you have never had any nice photos taken of yourselves, hahahaha!! Just kidding, don’t take it so seriously!!



Recently during my evangelistic concert in Pekanbaru, Indonesia, the photographer captured some shots like the two above that I am well-satisfied with, photos that make me feel not so inferior…
Just when I am admiring myself, suddenly…


The sweet and gentle expression begins to take on some changes…


And getting more and more exaggerated…


And not just the expression becoming ugly, the face begins to swell up too…


Really destroys my image… and the self-confidence disappears straight away, hahaha….


Oh please, can you not take some expressions in future? Hahaha…


七年就这样如飞而去。。。 7 years fly by just like that…

Within seven years a person’s appearance, environment, heart condition etc can experience a lot of changes… what about me? And what about you?
Are you happier than before? Are you more satisfied than before?Ever considered that seriously…?

七年前在灯塔 / Seven years ago at Lighthouse – 2004


今年在灯塔 / At Lighthouse this year – 2011





Due to the impact and encouragement on myself after the visit to Lighthouse this time, I looked into my album again and found the pictures captured at Lighthouse in 2004… comparing them with those photos just taken during the recent visit to Lighthouse, the differences of seven years are definite, especially in terms of appearance, the footprints of years gone by etc…
Memories of seven years inevitably surfaced in my heart… all the days trodden, journey of the heart, remorse, comfort, bitter sweet memories etc…
Seven years, many pictures can come to mind… some of people long gone, things that cannot be undone, but most important of all, is our heart still as determined and pure towards God…?






In these seven years, I know I may not be after God’s own heart all the time, and may not be completely focused every moment… there were times I did not obey, and times I got distracted…
Too many times I have wondered why God would use a person like me…



I guess that is what we call the grace and mercy of God, to realize that He has never once forsaken me and His heart towards me is ever true…
It is because of this that I can carry on serving… not because I am worthy but grateful…


O Lord, please guard my heart to forever serve You alone, and to forever give all the glory to You… Amen!
















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…
