Ruth and Wilfred ask us to join with them in praises to God for the following items:
A non-Christian business woman receives a Bible from us.
Last year, a non-Christian business woman asked us for a Bible. For the past few months, she has been sharing with us about herself and her family situation, which she had bottled-up for many years. She confided that her relationship with her husband was strained, and she was unable to forgive him because he caused the death of her two children in a car accident by his carelessness a few years ago.
We shared Jesus’ forgiveness at the cross of Calvary for the whole world and for us. A few weeks ago, she said she has forgiven her husband. We praise God for His supernatural intervention in her life. Now she goes for meals and shopping together with her husband, and also goes for holidays with him.
Please pray along for her, that she will be able to sense the power of God working in her life and situation.
A mother’s prayer for her son is answered.
A non-Christian business woman in our neighborhood had been sharing that her teenage son is beyond control, and wanted our group to pray for him. The boy has calmed down from his rebellious ways. His mother always stops by to tell us about his progress. She told us that he is teachable now, and has improved a lot after our prayers for him.
Please pray that God will intervene into every step and decision the boy make in his life.
- One of our contacts, a non-Christian lady, lost her husband. She is unable to share her problems to her own family members. Since her husband’s recent death, she has been troubled by feelings of utter loneliness and grief. For two hours, she was telling us about her inner ache and fear. We encouraged her with God’s Word. She was happy that we were willing to listen to her, and to sympathize with her.Pray that God will comfort and console her during this time of grief. She knows that our group will be praying for her. This has given her courage and hope.
- Pray for our group in Kluang, Malaysia.

Passing away of James’ mother-in-law
My brother James’ mother-in-law passed away on September 15, 2012 at the age of 73. Pray for my sister-in-law Mercy and her sister Gracy as they grieve the loss of their dear mother, that the presence of the Lord will replace the feeling of emptiness at this point in time, and that they will be able to find the plans and purposes of God in this situation.
Wilfred, James and I conducted the Funeral Service. The funeral was attended by Hindu relatives, non-Christians of different races, Christian friends and Pastors from various Churches – Tamil speaking, Malay speaking and English speaking Churches.
