A word from the Chongs; December 2019
2019 is a significant year for us as we celebrate several happy events:
50th issue of our blog since we started in October 2014
Our aim for the blog
Tek and I have been involved in publishing and editing the Christian magazine Asian Beacon since its inception in 1969 in Melaka, Malaysia.
Because of our interest in literature ministry, we collected many articles, testimonies, ideas, etc. which we wished to share so we started our own digital blog in 2014.
Our readers are mainly our own friends and contacts who we wish to keep in touch with and to share our lives and experiences.
We also invite those with interesting testimonies and stories to share their stories thereby using our Blog to be a platform for them to reach a wider audience.
Our aim is to keep in touch with friends & relatives far and wide and to promote edifying thoughts, events and experiences.
The first issue was published on 12 October 2014
The 50th Anniversary of our involvement with Asian beacon which started in 1969 in Melaka
Asian Beacon has now gone completely digital: www.asianbeacon.org

Celebrating 55 Years of Marriage
My other sister Sansan added, “You pray your marriage will last after 50 years. I’m sure that God will grant you this prayer. Now pray that YOU will also last to enjoy them”
This we are not sure God will answer. But on Boxing Day 26th Dec 1964 we promised each other that for better or worse, for richer and poorer, through sickness and in health, till death will we part. Our prayer is that we will not leave this earth separately but together. But then God’s grace is sufficient whatever happens.
Interestingly like Tek and me, these are also monogamous animals which mate for life: Gibbons, Swans, French Angel Fish, Wolves, Penguins, Termites, Prairie Voles, Bald Eagles, Parasitic Schistosoma Mansoni Worms & not least of all Cockroaches
Most mammals have “Love ’em’ and Leave ’em’ ” relationships but Prairie voles mate for life, sharing nest-building and an equal role in raising their young.
Schistosoma Mansoni Worms live in the blood vessel near the human intestine.
Most significantly 25 December is the Birthday of Jesus Christ. What is your response to the birth of this Baby? Read more
