Fear

F

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

Missing Home?

The other day, Wai Jia asked me if I miss home. I replied and asked which home? She gave me three options: Hong Kong – where I was born and lived until I was 8 Canada – where I lived for more than 20 years Singapore – where I was living for 2.5 years prior coming to Uganda I answered I don’t miss any of these places.

The Call

T

I packed Oswald Chambers’ two books in one, So Send I You and Workmen of God, with us to Uganda. One of the joyful moments we have every morning is reading one chapter for devotion. Since following his devotion’s My Utmost for His Highest, I enjoyed reading Oswald Chambers’ writings. His words bring clarity to Spiritual truths in such a profound way I don’t get from reading other authors. I am...
