The beginning before God
Who is God and/or Jesus? What is God and/or Jesus?
When I was earlier 20 plus, I was a free thinker (mean no religious). I never deeply knowing a particular religion. At that age, my mind only knowing how to work hard to earn a lot of money to had a better life. My life was so colourful of entertainment (eg: clubbing, gambling, cigratte, eat and drink). Only no drug and girl which was my principal of entertainment.
I get better life as i join multinational company (a pest control company) as Sales in mid July 2007 (till early February 2015 resign). I'm very happy getting this job. I work very hard for money. This job allow me plan my future (eg: marriage). Never forgot that night life entertainment even 'wild'. [Matthew 6:24 – No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money. – NIV]
My branch manager Mr. William was Christian. He able ask me "Tiong, you need to have a religion, so that, any problem you encounter always will be a place for you to release." My answer to him is "Oh““`" Sound funny to me also. Well, I still continue who am I. I do my work daily to achieve sale target.

At that time, i had a grilfriend (named: Audrey Lau who was my wife nowadays). She was a Christian. I do follow her went to church @ St. Thomas Catholic Church. Sometimes i followed her, sometimes i dropped off her and pick up when times almmost. During our dating, we had a lot of happiness memories and arguement. The arguement nearly make me streesful and tension (eg: thinking of i had scandal with girl collagues, why i work on weekend, why a particular girl keep calling me, all of girls problem and so on – i guess that is jealous). That's enough give me a word "surrender" in a lot of ways to continue. (…..Story further)
Somehow, after getting married (in 2009) with a son (born 2010), my wife brought me to "cell group". What is cell group? A lot of answer wildly guess in my mind. My 1st cell group was at Sister Cecilia's house. What is happening? Why people sing song? Why people tears during sing song? What song is that? What are they reading? What are they praying? Whom they prayed? Question in my mid "Why this? ..Why that?" Well, i just sit down listen. Half way i told my wife "I helping you take care of our son, Johathan. You go listen them". And it was a cycle for me wherever rotation of the house we went and i told my wife the same reason again and again.
Till one day, i had received a mystery call from Brother Simon. He invite me for cup of tea. With no doubt, i said "Where and when". He told me he knew about my marriage was shaking. I had told him my situation, he gave me solution with God's word from Bible. [2 Timothy 3:16 – All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, – NIV]
Well, very frequently i had tea with him by sharing my situation. Not only Brother Simon, Brother Gorden do give me a lot of encouragement in every anger. Both of them which i trusted very well.
Well, i would end this testimonial here. I will write more about my tetimonial soon in more deeply. Hope thru this, no mistake being repeated. [ John 11:25 – Jesus said to her,"I am the ressurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies." – NIV]
