    August 2017 Feedback from readers for: Issue 32 Articles about: Till we meet again

    I read the passing of the two dear persons with sadness too, although I did not know either of them. I knew of Avril as my own nieces, Crystal and Jamine, her cousins played with her as children and the family often heard her name mentioned.

    I feel for the grieving families, for it is always a shock to face death. In my own experience of losing my husband and my parents, it is taking a life time of coming to terms with the no negotiation about when one leaves the earth. My sympathies go to those who love Lawrence and Avril. Sansan Ching Sweeting from Hong Kong.

    Praise almighty God for their lives! I will always remember dearly the time many years ago in Wembley, when I played (?cricket) with David and saw Avril there among the other children. Not a common name Avril, but a nice one no doubt! (Hosea 13:14)

  • From Gary Green on A Christian colleague intercepts your deal

    June 2017 Feedback from readers for: Issue 30 Articles about: A Christian colleague intercepts your deal

    Dear Goldie

    The first key to this is Lai making the decision to make this experience a stepping stone not a millstone which holds him down and back, we sadly live in a hostile environment of Humanity and one where ethics are a rare commodity in many and that includes those whom claim to be followers of Christ in the church environment in the 21st century. Mostly caused as the lines between right and wrong are not taught from the word of God and the Word of God for many is not the final word on how we should conduct our lives. Boiling it down Lai not all who claim Jesus is Lord is in fact LORD.

    The second key is when dealing with Christians is if they behave like a crook treat them like a crook, i.e. you do not apply trust; and in all your dealings handle them with the wisdom of God’s word: Be gentle as a Dove and Wise as a Serpent. A fatal error is to treat such people as how you would like them to be. A Crook is A Crook, A theft is A Thief, you do not give them the keys to the safe in the bank.

    The third key is to Establish the integrity and Character of the person in question, now that’s a far more a in your face moment as it requires you actually following the model set out in the word of God.

    Many find this difficult as confrontation is something most shy from! Why? Well there are a couple of reasons I’d highlight: Confrontation without out-of-control anger will require us launching from a firm foundation of who we are in Christ, and also us having Faith in God’s Word the what is in the book of Matthew is Gods Way; and our willingness to “Walk through what I call the Valley of the Shadow of Death” here on earth.

    The fourth key There is no sugar coating when walking in Faith in regard to “CONFRONTATION “. It is imperative we understand CONFRONTATION is NO COMFORT ZONE, yet it’s a pathway all who truly follow Christ will journey down whilst here on earth God never avoided man’s sin nor ignore or pretend it was not there he dealt with “the problem” and “the person” and (the nations at times).

    The book of Matthew lays out a clear path for how to do this whilst navigating the pathway of life.

    Matthew 18:15-17 (KJV)

    15 Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.

    16 But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.

    17 And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican.

    The fifth key is be prepared to not be received well and be willing to disconnect from the person or persons who reject the approach. i.e. walk away dusting off your feet and not looking back i.e. putting the incident as far as the east is from the west. Forgive and Move on without the person in question in your inner circle.

    Peace at all costs is not peace!

    Living life this way is the door way for Abuse to enter and bring a world of troubles and grief, and it is critical that door way be shut tight and locked down and kept that way, how you ask, “Apply” Matthew 18:15-17 (KJV) in your dealings with humanity within your inner circles of life.

    Closing Thought: It is said life is a Rose Garden, true but never forget its full of thorns, be careful where you place yourself.

    June 2017 Feedback from readers for: Issue 30 Articles about: A Christian colleague intercepts your deal

    Dear Goldie

    First one must find out whether his colleague knew about him working with this client before passing judgement. The text said that he was happy that there were other Christians working in the same company so there would always be competition between Christians and non-Christians in the workplace. So one must accept it whether it comes from a Christian or a non-Christian colleague to get a deal. One must try to get a sale by offering the best for one’s client so that no one cut you out. This is not a perfect world and everyone wants to make a living and insurance is a very competitive environment. I believe Lai Yon should attend the prayer meeting. His colleague may not know that he was working with the said client. If he wants to clarify the matter he can ask his colleague about it after the prayer meeting.

    If after the prayer meeting the matter cannot be resolved he can follow the bible teaching. He can get one or two colleagues to attend in another meeting. If this fails he can then asks a Pastor or an Elder of the Church to mediate.

    March 2017 Feedback from readers for: Issue 27 Articles about: Home Gardens again/

    Hi Patrick

    How nice to know of your interest in herbs, vegies and a preventative lifestyle through organic nutrition.

    Malaysia has a great collection of herbs and the rainforest is a pharmacological treasury.

    Dato Seri Lim Chong Keat in Penang has a large range of native ginger and ventures into the remote jungles in search of more undiscovered ginger species.

    I have some friends in Kuala Lumpur who are into aquaponics.

    Food integrity is a concern. This morning a friend sent me a video of nasi lemak where the rice is fake, made of some non-organic material. There are fake sauces and fake eggs etc.

    A limited solution is to be self sufficient in vegies at least and be sure of the source of food. Everyone can grow fruit and vegies in small areas and in containers or use hydroponics where there is adequate hours of sunlight. Steve Oh, Perth

      Subject: Your March 2017 Feedback for: Issue 27 Articles about: Home Gardens again

      Dear Dixie,

      Thank you for interested in composting even though you are living in Singapore

      Are you living in a condominium or a landed property? The fact that you are using a composting bin suggests that you are living in a condominium.

      The things that can be added besides the kitchen wastes are:

      1) Used kitchen towels or tissues

      2) Egg shells or soup bones

      3) Left over food or any expired organic food like oats

      4) if you have a baby, break the cover of their used nappies to get the water retaining polymers. Wash them and dry them. Then either you put them in the compost or mix with the compost before you add to the soil for your plant. I have not tried it but l believe it will work.

      5) lf you can get some earthworms , you can expedite the breakdown of the organic matter

      6) Biochar are charcoal which are burnt with very little oxygen and then ground to big particle 7) EM or Effective Micro-organisme seems to be good for the soil. I have limited knowledge on this. I believe that there are some EM already present in our Malaysian soils

    Hi Patrick & Christine,

    It has been about 2 1/2 years since we went to Cambodia.

    Nowadays, Peter has been planting fruit trees and herbs in our back garden.

    One-thing, I would like to ask you, why our avocado tree does not fruit after 7 or more years.

    It has flowers but they dropped and left no fruit.

    Our fig tree is fruitful the last 3 years.

    We have 4 blueberries that produce tiny little blueberries.

    Maybe, this winter we are going to transfer them into big pots and my daughter said : it will be easier to manage.

  • From Steve Oh on Home Gardens

    March 2017 Feedback from readers for: Issue 27 Articles about: Home Gardens again/

    Congratulations on your initiative in providing helpful articles on gardening beginning with Patrick Loo’s reasons for composting. I have been composting for years and still look forward to acquring new knowledge.

    I live in Perth but successfully helped a resort in Malaysia do composting and rescued their trees and plants from undernourishment. Their reliance on chemical fertilisers was akin to humans relying on vitamins to stay alive. But compost was what the soil needed.

    I salvaged wood from factories and there is no shortage of ingredients to have them cooked by hardworking 24/7 bacteria. It cost them nothing and they saved thousands of ringgits in cost of fertilisers savings.

    In Perth my backyard is an entire compost factory as I make copious quantities of compost for my hungry trees on Perth’s notorious nutrient-deficient silicate water-repelling soil, or rather sand, within a 5-acre block for my new house.

    Grass clippings often with dry leaves regularly supplied by a lawn mowing contractor provide the base for my compost. In Summer, in full sun, my compost is ready in a month or so, as long as I keep the ingredients moist and oxygenated.

    The recipe includes

    1. Green materials ( fresh lawn clippings or dry ( still considered green)
    2. Brown materials – dry leaves, cardboard boxes (shredded)
    3. Oxygen – container must have airflow or ingredients must be be stirred periodically. Too wet it becomes smelly, too dry the bacteria cannot thrive.
    4. Water.

    The use of tyres is not so effective as it lacks aeration and you can only produce a limited amount but its great for harvesting. Just remove the tyres. Depending on demand and space constraints, your compost bins can be big or small but black is the preferred colour to retain heat, while not essential, will speed up the cooking process. The heat makes bacteria thrive in the humid space. When you poke your thumb in the pile it should be hot in the beginning stage and get cooler as the composting process nears completion.

    Your end product is black and a pleasant smelling product ready for your hungry soil. The quality of your compost depends on the ingredients. Some things you don’t want to use is oil and meat. Meat leftovers attract rodents. But a green compost pile one with edible fruit leftovers will attract them too.

    I’m a compulsive compost producing gardener and will be happy to help anyone in Perth establish a compost-making activity. Feel free to contact me via the editors who will give you my contact details.

    My compost once gave me a 25 kilogram water melon. Gardening is about having great soil and composting does the trick and its free. It is nature’s way of gardening. You become good through trial and error and anyone can cook great compost once they know the simple steps and essential recipe.

  • From Trish Tan ~ Malaysia on Alkitab Versi Borneo: A Truly Malaysian Bible*

    September 2016 Feedback from readers for: Issue 21 Articles about: Alkitab Versi Borneo a Truly Malaysian Bible

    Just a decade ago, I didn’t even realise the existence of the Bahasa Malay church, let alone its needs. When I first attended the BM church, I had quite a problem adjusting to the language in worship and communication with the people around me. Christian terminology was of course a challenge.

    So, I started attended classes in Bahasa Malaysia thinking that it will help me to improve my communication of God’s words in that language. However, in the first few lessons, I realised that I had one more problem and that was the need to first learn Bahasa Indonesia because the versions of the bibles used are Bahasa Indonesia and not the Berita Baik, the Good News bible which is a more simplified translation of the word of God.

    While I understand the need to study from more accurate translations, I struggled with another language before I could manage our own Bahasa Malaysia but there was no choice. When I wanted to start memorising verses, I had not been too comfortable because some of them do not seem to give me the clear understanding when I share them with non- believers. Recently, I shared about love, based on 1 Cor 13, to a group of people whose mother tongue is Bahasa Malaysia and yet there were so many words they could not understand. I had to ‘translate’ them to BM for them!

    At the beginning of last year, I was prompted to have my devotion reading in BM so I started with the Berita Baik. It really helped me to improve in the language and by God’s grace, I managed to finish and started my devotion in the Alkitab Terjemahan Baru which is in Bahasa Indonesia. I had to contend with the language again and found that many terms used are different from that in the Berita Baik and are not local in meaning.

    I thank God that this AVB is being introduced to me when I had only completed 10 chapters in the Bahasa Indonesia bible and now I can continue reading my devotion in Bahasa Malaysia, our very own national language.

    I also praise God for the sacrifices of the people who have obeyed God’s prompting to be involved in this translation and I fully agree that when people in our beloved country want to attend a church, the BM church will be the choice of many and God has equipped us to be ready with a version that is relevant and much needed. Praise the name of our Almighty God!

    Regarding August 2016 Feedback from readers for: Issue 20 Articles about: How Perth Prayer started in the city

    Dear Betty, Thank you for alerting us to the possible misunderstanding.

    The general meaning of “ecumenical” according to the Australian English Dictionary is “of the christian church throughout the world especially in regard to its unity”.

    But maybe this word should not have been used as nowadays some groups use it to mean “unity of all faiths”.

    Perth Prayer is organized by Christians of different churches and denominations who work together to spread the good news of Jesus Christ in the city.

    Please also pray for us in Calif., and we will also pray for you in Australia. The LGBT people want to “once and for all” wipe out all conservative Christian colleges. There is a “Senate Bill 1146” already passed the upper house (Senate) of State of Calif., and most likely will pass the lower house (“Assembly”) unless God intervenes.

    June 2016 Feedback from readers for: Issue 18a Articles about: “Christians Stand Firm in Your Faith

    When I was a trainee nurse on night duty at RPH I was to share accommodation with a young nurse. She was suffering from an inferiority complex and tried some inappropriate behaviour. I had never heard the term, Lesbian. But I was out of there like a shot. It made me wonder why these girls got involved in such despicable lifestyles. Most lesbians I came across in my nursing career were searching for acceptance. I believe that God can heal anyone.

    Later as a Christian, I saw with my open eyes a homosexual spirit on a male leader. It was very ugly. Though the leader would not accept what I saw, he was later caught molesting young men. I had vaguely known him in his younger days and was told that he had been abused as a young child and was suffering guilt. He was desperate for acceptance at the time. However, many years later, he repented and is now happily married.

    When expecting my second child I suffered from a serious heart condition. My obstetrician urged me to have an abortion. Praise God that I didn’t follow his advice. As a midwife I had seen too many babies unnecessarily. My daughter was a beautiful child who later became a missionary in Zambia. In the 1980’s two cardiologists told me that I had 6 months to live. God had other plans. I was miraculously healed from the heart condition after a Baptist minister and his elders prayed for me.

    It horrifies me to think that the laws of the land might change to allow same-sex marriage to be legalised.

Although I had only taken violin lesson for a year or two in middle school, he had me play with him and his friend one Saturday afternoon at his office. And guess what! We played Falling Leaves!

    June 2016: Feedback from readers for:Adios*, till we meet again Dear Dad

    Thanks for reminding us about Father’s Day, which was yesterday! I wish all the fathers the best of yesterday and for the rest of the year starting from their very special day.

    I also read your message, “Adios, till we meet again Dear Dad”, and was very touching. Especially the photo of him and you in our family orchestra. That orchestra, conducted by the Italian Professor Foa made a huge impact on me as a kid, for every Saturday, people gathered in our home on Cumberland Road, ate a dinner in the garden, then got out their instruments to play Falling Leaves and the ilk. I can see the young people playing and hear the music to this day.

    This was a music loving family, and that was about 60 years ago. Those around today will remember the Ching Family Orchestra in Kowlooontong and the memories were very fond ones. In case anyone’s wondering, that house on 51, Cumberland Road is now a prestigious kindergarten, seriously educating kids to get into DGS, DBS and Lasalle College. Education is a nightmare here. Back to Fathers……

    I had not known the story of you coming into the world, delivered by Dad, and in the dark, and during a war — how dramatically interesting! Apart from learning about different religious, our dad studied all kinds of other things, including earthworms, artificial diamonds, and acupuncture and, of course, music. He played the violin, clarinet and the saxophone. We took all these things about our dad for granted. I think he was self-taught. I never knew what going to the doctor meant while he lived, for he took care of all our ailments, and we never needed to see other doctors. Until he passed away, and I realised that I was quite lost for what to do when once I experienced a long bout of diarrhea contracted from China. Only then, that I panicked a little as awareness dawned that my father was not with us anymore. OMG! Where I shall find a doctor, I said to myself. My daughter, Jacinta recommended one — very expensive, down in Central. Till then, I had not been into a doctor’s clinic other than the ones we knew where dad practiced.

    Fathers come in different shape and form. They are so needed and they provide solidity to a family. The head is the father, the Bible teaches, and many other ancient thoughts say the same. Indeed, boys learn to be fathers from being with fathers. Girls learn to be girls, also from being with their fathers. It could all be very subtle, unnoticed and unspoken, but the bond, the security a dad provides is the heritage we all carry down the ages. We think of our dads and Dad’s Day must be celebrated with all our love and appreciation.

    May 2016: Feedback from readers for Mother’s special. Article “A tribute to my mother Louise

    I used to correspond with your mother for many years. Reading your article about her made me miss her letters even more! She had been a very generous person especially to those who were musically inclined! Our family received a lot of help from her. She might not have mentioned it to you but I just cannot forget how good she was towards us. I like to recall some of the kind deeds she showed to us, not to glorify a person but to remember how God used her to provide our needs.

    I first came in contact with Auntie Ching (that was how I called her) when my sister Yvette went to England to study nursing in 1955. She loaned my mother money to pay for my sister’s expenses for the ticket to travel to UK by ship. I was the one to bring the monthly repayment to her. When she knew that I was interested in taking up a second instrument besides piano, she suggested cello to me. That’s how I ended up taking cello lessons with you. She even paid half of the fees for me without me knowing! I only found out when your family took a trip overseas and I had to pay the fees to Mr Leven(?).

    Then I became too busy and I had to drop cello lessons, but she found other ‘creative’ ways to help me. After you people moved out of Cumberland Road, you moved into a flat with a very big area. I cannot recall where that place was. All I knew was that it had many rooms and many corners that one could hide. Auntie Ching employed me to sit with your little brother to watch him practice piano 2-3 time a week! Not to teach him but to make sure that he sat at the piano for at least half an hour! Once I went there and your brother simply ‘disappeared’! The maid called for him for more than half an hour but he was nowhere to be found! So I had to leave. By the way where is your brother now?

    After I moved to Singapore, we met up many times in HK and Singapore to play two pianos and had great fun making music together! I even learnt how to make dumplings from her and my granddaughter enjoys the dumplings I make very much. She said the ones I made were better than those served in restaurants! How can I not make more for her.

    The most touching thing your mother did was to ask your daughter to bring me her precious music scores for two pianos. Your daughter said “Grandma said these sheets are very precious to her, she is now handing them over to you for safekeeping! So I inherited something from her. I played those pieces with my son for many years until he got married and I have no one to play with. My grand daughter is very musical too. Someday I will play with her.

    Whenever I fought with my late husband, he was always the first to make gestures of reconciliation. I would still be fuming while he sent soothing and loving messages through his body movements, soft voice and approaches. So there was no more fuel to fan the fight. I can’t even remember what we fought about.

    The same applies to my daughter and myself. We fight for I don’t know what (honestly, things just flare up for some reason). She would always be the first to apologise, castigate herself and tell me she will improve herself. In this way, she takes after her dad. I would be more stubborn, and would never even think I needed to be the one to say sorry.

    So, the magic words, “please” and “sorry” become one of the main themes of our families’ vocabulary. The children at the early childhood ages are taught these words in both languages — English and Chinese. They are instant peacemakers!

God’s work done in God’s way for his glory will find him an active partner. The British missionaries in Malaya probably felt like you did and today many of us are the fruit of their labour and they would be full of joy if only they can see the results. It is only the beginning.

    Greetings to my brother n sister in Christ, David & Inez!

    Shalom & Blessings!

    Thank you for your article ” Facing Barrenness”. After reading it, even i am facing certain challenges that only our Good God knows n understands completely. Whenever any doubts, nagging questions, fears, n so on, our Jesus always ministers to me. Among the encouragements as He points to the Promises in His Holy Bible, He reassures me that i am important to Him, that He will continue to use me to help Christians e.g intercessions, sow bless the Ministries He directs, instructs. n so on.

    Usually He speaks of my breakthroughs that only He can do so. Asks me to obeys, trusts, believes, depend not on my own efforts, capabilities but upon Him solely. Together, He will do His will, plan n purpose. Be patient.
    He is consistently working for my good. That the time will come, that’s, His Timing!

    Thank you dear brother n sister, for your sharing. It does has positive teachings n encouragements upon myself.. PTL!

    October 2015: Feedback from readers for Article Persecution – the big picture and genocide

    Greetings brother Tek & sister Goldie,

    I know you all are doing God’s Work with passion n great love. Regarding the merciless torturous, unmentionable sufferings of Christians who will not submit to these evils but suffered to the end, i sense our Lord Jesus tears, unbroken communications, always prompting true Christians to intercede whenever they can, Even such immense evils are committed by mostly muslims n their supporters who willing trade their believes with satan’s joy, i sense Jesus is asking willing Christians to not only intercede fervently but to be supportive of Open Doors.in ways that He instructs us. There are also NGO’s call BGEA (plus related NGO’S) , Generals International, n Reformation Prayer Network, n so on. Although we must pray for Christians who are suffering beyond our imagination, Jesus also wants these evils peoples to repent. Is it possible ? Answers – all in the Holy Bible – Jesus Christ !

    We all Christians internationally stand together in unison, Saying our Jesus Christ, He bleed n died for us all, past present n future. Why do others who ever they may be, even Christians choose to live in sins, evils n so on, eventually? The choice is us to choose? I have no answer to many questions, but to continue to love, trust, look to the Cross, in humility n tears!

    Shalom! Blessings!

    Warm Regards to my Brothers & Sisters-in-Christ!

    Always find something interesting in your blog. The story on Ong Teong Hoon is the stuff of a providential God putting the pieces together, a testimony of his working things out as we commit to acts prompted by our faith. Sorry I missed your meeting with Geo but will pop in to visit your Saturday meet at G’fun in the near future. Praying for you both to continue to bear fruit in your ripe old age some distance away yet. Remember that our life span is 120 years as God appointed. Genesis 6:3.
