(Every Lunar New Year, we welcome those new members who join New Life PJ in the last 12 months over a special dinner, let’s hear from some of them who attended our 2018 Welcome Dinner )
I am of Kelabit tribe (from Sarawak). I am here with my son, Jeremy. When I first attended the church, as I entered I felt the warmness of the people so I stayed on. Someone introduced me to Pr Hock. I feel so at home and I am happy I have a family here. I am now attending Ting and Nelly’s Life Group, they are very friendly. I thank God for bringing me here and I believe I will grow together with you.

We have a friend called Dr. Ko, he always tells us that the church is very warm and asks us to come. We first came to this church about a year ago also during Chinese New Year. After that we came again and find that the church is very warm. Particularly, I enjoyed the coffee after church service. My wife finds this church is very warm and she likes this church so I follow her.
I am very comfortable with this church. Every week I come I meet with new people and they are very warm. We are currently attending Dato Raymond and Datin Shirleen’s Life Group.

How we came to New Life? It was because of my late mother. During her wake service, New Life’s Life Leaders and members came to help everyday. After the funeral service, we decided to come back to New Life to say thank you, and when we first walked through the door we felt the connection, it was a very different feel. The band was playing and I thought I am coming to a rock concert. Well, I am going to say it again that it was the warmth and the friendliness of the people here. We actually asked the children if they would like to come back again to the church and they said yes. The fact that the children wanted to stay in this church is also part of the reasons we are here as well. Anyway, this is the church that we are calling a home now.
I am very glad to have this church as a family. The children are even more eager to come to church. At times, we parents want to sleep in but they encourage us not to skip church. They have learnt so much especially from Pr Hock. Every time after church, they will share so much as what is happening in church. They actually knew more than us. It also means that they are connecting with God. I hope that this kind of faith will continue and even impact their friends as well. Actually we do have a family here, Datin Leepin is our auntie and Edward and Sharon are my brother and sister-in-law. Not only that we are coming to church every week but we are meeting our family members every week as well, that makes us getting closer and sharing a lot of things together with them. Not forgetting that I have joined Life Group led by Danny and Jamie. I have received much support from them and Life Group members. Indeed I have learnt a lot and I have gone through a lot of ups and downs and they are always there to help me. The daily scripture also gives a boost to my daily life. I praise the Lord for He has granted me a new life. Thank you to each and everyone of you.
From 9 to 12 years old, I actually didn’t think much when I first came to the church, I just followed my parents. When I was 12, I went for my first youth camp, during the first night worship service, Pr Hock prayed for me and I cried. I realised that God was really there and the Holy Spirit is inside me. From then on, I just keep coming to church because the presence of God is so real.
I am 14 years old and I started to come to church when I was 8 years old. I really enjoy the church especially when I am worshipping God. I learnt a lot now as compared to when I first came to church. It felt boring then because (there were) just a lot of talking and we just listened. Now, I am with LifeYouth, every time, we have a lot of joy and fun and not just talking and singing. I really enjoy now.
Good evening everyone! How I came to know New Life? My wife and I first came to New Life in May last year. My wife is now working in Saudi Arabia. It was her aunt who passed her a scanned copy of Pr Hock’s name card and we decided to come on one Sunday morning. We were late to the service and met Bro CH at the door and he was very friendly. Bro CH continued to extend warm welcome to us and got us coffee and snacks and we continued to come and now we are with their Life Group. Bro CH and Evelyn are a very loving couple and have been taking good care of me. I believe not only to us and to the church as well. Thank you to Pr Hock too.
Good evening! I like this church. I came to this church because of Mabel. Mabel and I were very close friends and colleagues but somehow we lost touch about 15 years ago. One day, I was feeling lonely and I thought of Mabel and I prayed to God: please reconnect us. After about one week, Mabel suddenly called me and I am here now. My Life Group leaders are Danny and Jamie, they are nice and caring people that is why I am happy to be in this church. Thank you.

Thank you to Uncle Danny for taking me to New Life to know more about bible and Jesus. Attended many activities. Somehow, we all look young, in New Life everyone is young, enjoy and be happy.
