Amazing Response Part Two (24 May)

As a continuation from last week's session at Grace Assembly Petaling Jaya, we continued on with a new topic yesterday evening - "Dinosaurs and the Flood". We are truly amazed at the turnout on a weekday evening - with more coming compared with the previous session. I was encouraged when a senior church leader is now seriously reconsidering his previously held old-age view of the earth after the presentation on theological inconsistency of the "million of years" view of origins.

Amazing Response at Grace Assembly PJ (17 May)

Due to the persistent "marketing" effort from James Hoh (who recently returned from the Creation Museum), we had an "amazing grace" experience at Grace Assembly PJ as more than 200 people turned up, despite the fact that it was a Thursday evening seminar. If it wasn't for the collaborative effort from my wife, daughters and Angeline (James' wife) - we could not have managed the resource sale at the end of the seminar. Bad news - we ran out of stock for some of the popular titles like the Answers Pack but the good news is this - the senior pastor, Ps.Henry invited us to come back for two more sessions to complete the 7C's of Biblical History. We are truly amazed at the spiritual hunger and interest. To God be the Glory!

Creation @Bandar Sunway Gospel Center (4, 5 May)

Our first Creation Seminar after the Nepal trip. We have always enjoyed sharing in the Brethren churches because there is such a hunger to read and investigate - very much like the Bereans in Acts 17:11. Bandar Sunway Gospel Centre is no exception. It was also timely that the shipment from Answers in Genesis arrived and we had enough to "feed" the members who came for two nights. We are grateful for the well-designed resources of books and DVDs which serve to amplify the absolute authority of Scripture.

Mother's Day Special (13 May)

Quite a strange experience for me to share a Mother's Day message! Yet, we had a good time of laughter and interaction at Bethany Chapel Klang as we discoursed on the topic - "Five Basic Needs of a Mother". How we honor our wives and the mother of our children on a regular basis is more important that just setting aside a day every year. It is more a matter of consistency rather than commemoration.
Ended the day with a personal touch - here you see the mother of my own children also my own mother. Standing behind us - God willing - will be two future Godly mothers!

Before We Left Nepal (26 April)

Just the day before we are due to fly back home, we squeezed in two more training sessions - spending time with the teachers of New Life School at Covenant Christian Fellowship and also with the key youth leaders. The session with the youth leaders was very exciting because we had to work against "darkness" - due to the regular power outage in Nepal, I had to try and cover as much material as possible before it gets dark! Despite that, the enlightened look on the faces of the leaders really made the session worthwhile. May the principle of 2 Timothy 2:2 be true - commit you to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also. Amen.
