It was a great time of rejoicing on April 18th 2012 as we witnessed 9 of our brothers and sisters make a profession of their faith in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour and took the step of obedience by being baptised.
The service was chaired by Andrew Wong and a message was given by Titus Ma. We also got to hear the testimonies from each of the baptisimal candidates which were so varied but all spoke of how God met them and their needs and how their life has been transformed by God’s love and redeeming grace. The vast majority of the baptisimal candidates were from our youth and young people and it is always a joy to see God touching the lives of these young ones who are very much still at the start of their life journey. It is our hope and prayer that their walk with God will grow closer over time and they will be both blessed and be a blessing to others through their lives surrendered to Christ. Of course, brother Choo Chan Fatt also took to the waters of baptism and we were encouraged and reminded that one is never too old and set in one’s ways to receive God’s grace and His gift of salvation. Finally, one has to mention sister Sary. We are so thankful to God for bringing our Cambodian sister into our midst and for the great help she has been to the Thomases. And now our joy is further multiplied to see her joy at receiving the Lord Jesus into her life.
Our Elder, Uncle Tee Fatt, took on the responsibility and privilege to lead each of them through the waters of baptism.
The very next Sunday worship (April 25th), Elder Calvin Tan welcomed all the newly baptised brothers and sisters to take part in the partaking of the bread and wine at the Lord’s Table.
Once again, our congratulations, best wishes and prayers go to the 9 newly baptised believers – Choo Chan Fatt, Deborah Chew, Emma Oh, Jonathan Chew, Karen Ng Yen Ling, Kee Ming Zhen, Seow Jane Jayne, Seow June Juan and Toung Sary,
