It breaks our hearts whenever we hear stories of children being abused, abandoned, neglected and even murdered. In Singapore, there is a Fostering Scheme, an alternative care arrangement for children who are in need of such conducive and healthy family environment to grow in. Under the scheme, foster homes (temporary) are for children whose parents… Continue reading How can you make the most difference to a child’s life?
With Chinese New Year looming nearer and nearer, spring cleaning is the top to-do-task. I was spring cleaning this morning and I saw the few letters we received from the Bridge of Hope children whom we sponsor on my desk . They have been sitting there on my desk for months waiting for us to… Continue reading Letter #2 to Bridge of Hope Children
On the last Saturday of 2012, we brought our niece, nephew and Dot to Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve in the morning. Then we went to AMK Hub for lunch and after that their dad came and picked them.

It was Christmas eve. Our family of three went out for lunch. I asked Dot,”What do you want to eat?” She replied,”Din Tai Fung. Eat noodle.” I replied,”Let’s go Malaysia Boleh.

I came to know about Gospel For Asia (GFA) when I read “Revolution in World Missions“. I was touched by how God uses GFA to be a blessing to the poorest of the poor. I love what GFA is doing and I am glad that 100% of what we give goes to the field for the children we sponsor.
After J and I read this book, we decided to sponsor two girls whose birthdays fall in the same month as Dot, to remind us that God loves these girls as much as He loves Dot and we can make a difference to these girls’ lives.

For millions of children in Asia a toothbrush is a luxury item. Clean clothes are a dream. A pillow to lay down one’s head, unknown.

It is more blessed to give than to receive. Acts 20:35
