Issue – 30

A Word from Goldie  June 2017 Issue – 30


We shared about our going to Kuching for a church camp in our May #29 issue. Here we disclose the background happenings of how we almost didn’t make it: “The Story behind going to Kuching” by Goldie and “Going to Kuching Family Camp” from Tek’s point of view. We both learnt some precious lessons about decision-making and hope other husbands and wives will too.

   Our Malaysia Trip

We included Kuala Lumpur, Bentong and Melaka in this April trip. We caught up with old friends and relatives, friendships we cherish wherever we travelled. We attended the Asian Beacon’s Writers’ Moments organized by the newly-formed Ex Co.  New fervor, new enthusiasm, new vision – even the office is newly renovated by the

Hon. Sec. Patrick Leong, ushering New Life in Asian Beacon 2017.

We continue to hear about domestic helpers becoming Christians while working for Christian families. Some of them have even returned to their host countries to reach out to their own kind. We share another testimony in There And Back Again.

Those who are concerned about their families who still worship idols can take heart by Jen Nee Lau’s testimony of what she did to be able to now enjoy An Idol Free Home.

Dr Dixie Chua continues with her series on Relationships with Members of Our Family by Marriage, which can be difficult associations but can be beautiful friendships too.

We introduce a new feature called “Market Place Forum” (MPF), inviting readers’ comments.
