In this segment of Kingdom Family Series, I wish to introduce Pastor Weng Cheong and Yee Fun. Both of these are our home grown ministers of God. Came to New Life and born again in our church, they have grown to be successful ministers in our NLRC Church Family. They are our spiritual son and daughter. We are very proud of them. We have seen them in joy and in tears on account of labouring in the Lord’s harvest field. But they have never complained not ever thought negatively about God and our spiritual family. They tenaciously served from one stage to another. Today, they are effectively serving God with their family with wisdom and in the power of the Holy Spirit. They told me repeatedly, more than ever, they feel the Kingdom vision and church planting are unique to NLRC and it is God’s call to our Group. So they are into building foundations for future success. If they have to restructure, they will do so, so that they will groom up strong leaders for future multiplication. These are special God’s servants indeed.
The Values of Kingdom Life & Kingdom Family
by Pr Wong Weng Cheong & Ng Yee Fun
Understanding of Kingdom Life should not remain just theory, more importantly it is how we apply and live out its values in our daily living.
Esther and I place great emphasis on the family, so much so that everything we do starts from the family. I praise the Lord that we enjoy a good marital relationship, and God blessed us with three daughters. Most worthy of thanks is the fact that they are all very teachable. They have a sense of security and good self-esteem in their growing up years. Whenever they are faced with obstacles or failures, they know their home is their best refuge. Dad and Mom are always there by their side when they need a shoulder to cry on, to guide, strengthen and encourage them to get back on their feet again. As parents, we know we have to portray the image of God the Father before our children, with love and honesty, according to the Scriptures. Whilst our foundation of life is firmly rooted in God’s righteousness, Yee Fun and I are careful to show them God’s unconditional love and acceptance. These explain why our home is filled with laughter always. As Yee Fun is one who honors her husband, as a father, I know that when I love my wife dearly, our children will feel the warmth and love of the family.
“I like my family” is the expression of joy from our daughters regularly. We are truly grateful to the Lord for all these.
Our daughters spend their growing up years in church life and are serving in church ministry. They are growing spiritually in knowledge, wisdom and faith in the Lord. Yee Fun and I are so encouraged by them.
I want to make a special thanksgiving about my 94-year-old mother. She has been staying with us all these while and we take care and look after her. Despite being afflicted with Alzheimer’s Syndrome since over 20 years ago, God has taught us to put in practice the culture of honor and filial piety towards her. Our children witness how we love and take care of their grandmother since young. As a result, I have never heard them murmur while taking care and cleaning after grandmother. Praise the Lord. “Honour your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you.” (Exodus 20:12)
Praise the Lord for giving us a chance to put into practice these Kingdom values. I am convinced that an exemplary life is the most effective means to pass down our legacy to the next generation. In these end times, let’s bear witness to these values that undergird Kingdom Life and Kingdom Family through our personal walk and family.
