The Night of the Long Knives

It was a night of terror. On that night in July 1934  Hitler sent his Nazi storm troopers to carry out a political massacre. Hundreds of Germans and Jews were murdered, many were his enemies, others were his personal friends. That was the night his horrendous Nazi Regime started.  Historians called it the Night of the Long Knives. More… Continue Reading

Step by Step I found Him

I wanted to be a Christian and after the cry to Jesus on Taryna’s behalf and His answer, I know for sure that Jesus Christ is the Saviour. Jesus declared,I am the way and the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father except through me.” Jn 14:6. I was sure that Jesus is alive because he hears and He answers us when we cry out to Him. More… Continue Reading

Jaw Cancer

After several tests, x-rays and scans, the doctors classified my case as 4th (final) stage oral cavity cancer, because the tumor was about 3-4cm in size. If surgery was performed, it would give me a 60% chance of living for a further five years. For a moment I felt my world caved in…but  I felt grateful that I knew Jesus and I had to trust Him to heal me. More.. Continue Reading

Pain! 

I work in the area of chronic mechanical back and buttock pain. This is debilitating and affects not only the body but saps and drains the mind and the spirit.

Cancer can be your friend

All his life Anton, a car salesman, lived for this life. He was a gambler and a drinker. He was also dyslexic so he did not have much education – his parents did not know enough to have him diagnosed or treated.  But to know him was to love him – he was such a joker and first to offer his help if needed.

The Enemy comes to kill, steal and destroy…..

but Jesus has come to give me abundant life. It was an ordinary day when I went to work as usual.  I was a real estate agent and was showing a client an apartment when suddenly he took out a knife to threaten me. He blindfolded me, tied me up and robbed me of all my possessions. Gripped with fear, I shook all over not knowing what he was going to do to me. More… Continue Reading

By Searching

As a teenager, I thought a lot about the meaning of life and realized by the age of 14, that everything was a “mere chasing after the wind” as opined in the book of Ecclesiastes of the Bible. As life was good then, I decided to declare myself an atheist and told myself that God didn’t exist and I could depend on my own strength to get things done. More… Continue Reading

God’s Hand is still on Marcus…. and me

It has been some 20 years since our Lord miraculously healed my son Marcus of a malignant brain tumour in 1994 at the age of 12 and yet I still had this lingering fear of a recurrence despite my travelling all over the country and even overseas to glorify His Name. On 1st May 2014 that lingering fear turned to grave apprehension when Marcus called to inform me that he had a headache and was resting in his apartment in the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur.
