A testimony of my Mother, aged 90Last October, something quite marvellous and surprising took place. My mother all of 89 years of age， agreed to put her faith in Jesus Christ. It had been a long process, over many, many years. Her belief in the many gods of the Chinese tradition had been questioned, and slowly several of her 9 children had become Christians, including the youngest daughter, who passed away of cancer after her baptism.My mother had been steeped in all the outward forms of traditional Chinese religion; ancestor worship, praying...Read more
Another thought-provoking letter from cyber space.
2.Man's way leads to a hopeless end -- God's way leads to an endless hope.
A lot of kneeling will keep you in good standing.
He who kneels before God can stand before anyone.
In the sentence of life, the devil may be a comma--but never let him be the period.
Don't put a question mark where God puts a period. ...Read more

In the last few years, partly because I stopped working, and partly because I wanted to improve my Mandarin, I started reading the entertainment news in Chinese. I couldn't manage other forms of news as the translated proper names and political, economic technical terms were not in my vocabulary! (Most of them are still not.). In any case I have become familiar with the happenings in the "happening" world of Asian entertainment stars. And so, over the last few years, I read the reports written by paparazzi, about this almost u...Read more

Do Names matter or not? I am not talking about names of people , but of events and occasions.I have always queried about the names of two events called "Good Friday"and "Easter Sunday", which were remembered last weekend.

That was the day He died a horrific death , nailed to a cross, formed o...Read more

John Harper - Preaching Till His Final Breath (A True Hero In The Titanic)( received this from my emailing friends)
John Harper was born to a pair of solid Christian parents on May 29th, 1872. It was on the last Sunday of March 1886, when he was thirteen years old that he received Jesus as the Lord of his life. He never knew what it was to "sow his wild oats." He began to preach about four years later at the ripe old age of 17 years old by going down to the streets of his village and pouring out...Read more
" Bragging Rights"I heard these 2 words in a radio program, and my attention was alerted. I thought ,'what does this mean?' This person has achieved something so great that he has a right to boast about it? In my mind 'bragging' seems a worse occurrence than "boasting". Even the sound of the former is grating and unpleasant, but then, no one loves a person who often boasts as well.So what can a person be proud of? Wealth, skill, sporting prowess, good looks, popularity? And the list can go on. I ...Read more
