Story 29: Hiong Yee & Siew Ping

SATURDAY PRAISE SERVICE 梁向义 & 欧秀萍

The Beginning

Both Siew Ping and I were SAJC students. It was definitely the Lord’s hand that brought us to the college, where we experienced the love of God for the first time at the weekly chapel sessions, and accepted Him into our lives. This marked the start of our faith journey with Him.

We had known each other since our SAJC days, but it was God who made our paths cross during one of the alumni gatherings. As singles, we desired to serve Him faithfully in our own capacities (Siew Ping previously attended Faith Community Baptist Church). Looking back at how the Lord brought us together, we can only marvel at His perfect timing and plan for our lives when our eyes are fixed on Him.

2013 COR Family Camp

After we were married in 2011, Siew Ping joined me in COR. One of the most memorable experiences we had in COR was when I became the 2013 Family Camp Commandant. Although the work and responsibilities were overwhelming at times, we give thanks that everything turned out well, and that all the different COR congregations were able to come together as a big family. Siew Ping also got to know more COR members, especially those from other congregations. Significantly, it was during the camp that the Lord spoke to Aunty Suat Ngoh to pray with Siew Ping for a baby soon. The following year, Deborah was born. Praise God for His goodness!

His Love Covers and Delivers

As new parents, we experienced challenges in raising Deborah and serving God at the same time. However, the SPS community is ever willing to lend a helping hand when the need arises. Looking ahead, there are bound to be more life challenges as a family, but we trust God will cover and deliver us for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health.

开拓工作

我和秀萍姊妹都是圣安德烈初级学院的学生。上帝奇妙的作为带领了我们进入这所学院,让我们在每周的座堂礼拜里,第一次感受到上帝的爱。这也开启了我们与上帝的信心之旅。

虽然我们在初级学院时期已经彼此认识,但在一次的校友聚会里,却是上帝使我们的生命相互有了交叉。单身时期,我们都渴慕尽自己的才干与能力,忠心地服侍上帝 (秀萍之前是参与坚信浸信教会的崇拜)。在我们回顾上帝如何把我们结合在一起时,不禁赞叹,当我们不住地定睛在祂身上,上帝在我们生命中成就事情的时间和计划是何等的奇妙!

2013年复活堂家庭营

我们在2011年结为夫妻后,秀萍便随着我加入了复活堂这个大家庭。其中最难忘的一次经历,就是当我担任2013年复活堂家庭营总指挥的那段期间。虽然要处理的事情与所要担负的责任有时让我喘不过气,但我们非常感恩,因为上帝使所有的事情都顺利进行,也使复活堂的所有堂会能像一个大家庭一样聚集在一起。秀萍也因此认识了更多的复活堂会友, 尤其是从别的堂会来的弟兄姊妹。更值得感恩的是上帝借着这次的营会, 感动Aunty Suat Ngoh为秀萍祷告,让她能尽快怀孕。隔年,Deborah便诞生了。赞美上帝的良善!

上帝爱的护庇与带领

初为父母,我们面对了要同时养育Deborah及侍奉上帝的挑战。尽管如此,每当我们有需要时,我们所属的‘星期六赞美堂会’的社群里,必定会有弟兄姊妹给予我们及时的帮助。未来,我们可能会面对更多家庭中所带来的挑战,但我们深信,无论是在更美好或更糟糕的环境里,无论是富足或平穷,在患病中或健康时,上帝都会护庇并帮助我们安然度过。
