Speaking at Q Commons on Resilience and Faith

S

Last night I had the privilege of speaking at Q Commons (Singapore).  Q Commons is an event bringing like-minded Christians and non-Christians to discuss how to advance the common good in our community. My topic was Finding resilience through my faith in Christ. I haven’t spoke on my own journey for a long time.  It was a refreshing time for the audience and also for me as I recalled how...

See you later, Uganda

S

In a few hours, Wai Jia and I will be hopping on a plane leaving Uganda. I haven’t blog much about our experience in Africa. The past year was a year of laboring for the Lord and experiencing the faithfulness of His goodness. I am leaving with ever more desire to serve Him and seek His Kingdom and His righteousness. I am leaving realizing that the Word of God is a two edged sword and I...

When Empathy is not enough (a missionary musing)

W

Before coming to Uganda with my wife as missionaries, I served in Singapore for 2 ½ years.   Singapore was the first place where I served as a long term missionary.   Given that Singapore is well developed, you would think it was easy for me to transit, right?   Unfortunately, my experience was far from smooth.   My wife had to spend many nights listening...

A Lesson on Obeying Godly Authority

This week is the first week our Bible School is starting classes for 2015.  It is a joy to see some new faces and old faces (from last year’s class). Wai Jia and I spent a considerable time this week teaching on leadership and what it means to be a good ministers.  The students attending the Bible School varies from Pastors, Apostle to young people preparing for ministry.  We even have a...

Baby Vervet Monkey (rare video)

B

In front of our house, we have a mango tree.  It is not uncommon to see a group of Vervet monkeys crossing over the fence and going to the tree to forage for food. A few weeks ago, I captured this rare footage of a baby Vervet monkey.  The baby tends to cling on to its mother.  To see one on its own is extremely rare.  The mother is very protective about her young and any signs of danger, she...

I didn’t even have a fork

Tam Wai Jia wrote a very good piece entitled, “I Didn’t Even Have a Fork.” It is about a lady from the church we attended in Uganda. From living on the streets, her life is restored through the care of the local pastor. Sometimes we don’t know the effect we have when we lend a helping hand.   You can read it at 

Fear

The remarkable thing about fearing God is that when you fear God you fear nothing else, whereas if you do not fear God you fear everything else. “Blessed is every one that feareth the Lord”;…  The Highest Good—The Pilgrim’s Song Book, 537 L

Merry Christmas from Team Tam

M

We wish everyone a Merry Christmas from Uganda.  🙂 As for Wai Jia and I, we are getting good and soundful rest at home. Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. Then the angel said to them, “Do not be...

God the Restorer – Jeremiah 32

G

I am currently taking a course, Know Your Bible. One of the assignments is to write a five page paper on two of the Major Prophets. After writing so many papers from University, you would think I can handle a five page essay easy peasy.  It wasn’t.  I chose Isaiah and Jeremiah because I desired to know more about them. In order to write this paper, I read most of their books. Mind you, that’s 66...
