Good afternoon Brothers & Sisters. My name is Kok Poh if you don’t know me.
Happy 8th anniversary to LFE Church and you know what, I’m already with this church for more than 5yrs.
How time flies.
I came to LFE Church thru Adullam Life Counselling ministry.
I was in debts and many of us here would know how it was like to be in debts – anxious, always in anger, in fear & heavy burden. I still remembered I will call or message pastor during those times seeking for prayers and counsel. Thank you pastor!
As for my debts, I was put on Debt Repayment Scheme (DRS) and the debt repayments for 57 months and 40% of my salary will go into the debt repayment every month.
It’s tough every month but God is always good to me and my family.
Pastor started the biblical financial class and I attended twice. First time I didn’t really put much effort to do the homework and so I attended the class for the 2nd time.
God knows our hearts desire and It was thru the classes that God teaches me how to manage my finances.
Comes May 2019 and I will be out of the DRS.
I also love the church camp & watch night.
I attended the camp in 2017 and the theme was “Changed”. During the camp we were asked to write down things we want to change.
The First thing God put into my mind was to quit smoking. Smoking has been a bondage for more than 30 yrs. I would start and end my day with a cigarette. The First thing I wake up is that I would light up a cigarette even before going to the washroom and each night before going to bed I will also light up a cigarette.
At that moment of writing, I didn’t know how to quit, to be honest, but I still decide to pen it down – I want to quit smoking in 2018. I continue to smoke during church camp and after church camp. Even on Watch Night Service, the last day of 2017, I am still a smoker. I remembered I was sick that day and having high fever. I know God is reminding me.
But when the clock struck 12am I stopped being a smoker just like that. I remembered I still have cigarettes with me at that time but there was no more urge or craving for cigarettes.
And from 1st Jan 2018 till now, 20th January 2019, I have not smoking.
To many smokers it’s hard and impossible to quit smoking. But if God can raise Lazarus from the dead after 4 days nothing is impossible for God if u believe and surrender completely to him, what happened to me can happen to you. I am not alone in being delivered from smoking in this church.
Many still remembered how Ryan, my son, was like when he first came to church. He was 4 years old then. Today we can see how much he has changed and the great difference between now and then.
By God’s grace I can stand here today, and it is thru LFE church that I am a changed person today.
Thank you, God, for bringing me to this church & making me part of the church.
All glory and praise be to our God.
