At long last we are on our way to Genting Highlands for a 4-day Church Camp! Thought we would never make it. The air-con system of our ‘old reliable’ Toyota pulled a monkey wrench on us and ‘conk’ out on Sunday morning! Even mechanics have a day off on the Lord’s day. We have no choice but to bring it to the garage for repair this morning at 9.00.
Trust the mechanic to offer his helpful advice. ‘Going to Genting Highlands, ah? Better check and service as well. If break down, siong, man.’ Two hours of repair later and $150 poorer, we are on our way to Genting Highlands.

Starkey Road Baptist Church, Largo Florida, held a service last year to honour five pastors’ wives whose husbands are at home with the Lord. These Christian women had served alongside their husbands ‘with effectiveness, faithfulness and distinction. Each of them was a vital part of ministries that God blessed with great abundance.’
What a testimony!
The Khngs have had the rare privilege of knowing one of these great men of God and his beloved wife when the Lord first allowed our paths to cross nearly 14 years ago. Though we were ‘strangers and pilgrims’ in their land, they literally took us into their ‘heart and home’ and figuratively into their hearts.
by Pastor John Khng
There is much confusion among Christians over the teaching of ‘Lordship salvation’. Those who teach ‘Lordship salvation’ claim that one must make Jesus Lord of his life in order to be saved. By this they mean that if a person does not surrender his life to the Lord when he receives Him as Saviour, he cannot be saved. A variation of such teaching states that there must be willingness to be controlled by the Lord at the time of salvation in order to be saved.
To overcome all these confusions, we must look at the Bible for the right teaching on the way of salvation.
