Walking With Jesus!!

It is not easy to walk with Jesus and yet a lot of Christians wanted to walk right with Jesus.. Therefore I really want to blog all my walks so that I can remember all the walks that I have had with Jesus and to rely on Him and allow Him to carry me when I couldn't walk right with Him anymore.

Following Jesus

     It has been a long time since my last post. My last post was Christmas last year. Well by saying that, this post will be my first post of the year 2017.

     Anyway, I just read a comment from a friend of mine saying that he is leaving his family because they were trying to control him in his life. After reading his comment, I tried to compare my life with his. To be honest, there are no different between me and him. My family is also very controlling. Controlling my in's and out's. Even my work, they also want to control. Telling me to come back early for dinner and if I were to come back late, it must be before 10pm. Mind you, my working place to my house is about 45 minutes drive to an hour. First 15 minutes of the journey are dark pitched area, surrounded by jungles and kampung houses with only one lane to go drive. Not two or three, like a normal road. Then road became clearer but a lot of drivers speed in their driving.

     Well I am not trying to describe my journey back home in this blog but what I want to say is it. Everyone will face a lot of problem but how you solve the problem determine how strong you are spiritually. Whether it is for your family, your friends (peers), your conuntry (mine is Malaysia). your colleagues. If you can overcome whatever is given to you, then you are spiritually strong. I am a staunch believer of if you are born here, God have a mission for you here. Not elsewhere. Same thing goes to my friend. He was born to his family. He cannot go around and tell people, "I am leaving them". God put him into the family for a reason. 

     If Jesus were to get angry when He was put into a difficulty life, there would not be any salvation. I stated in my last Christmas post that Jesus never live a good life during His time on earth. Everyone wants to get rid of Him even when He was in Mary's womb right up to His death on the cross. Remember, babies need to die because of Him. Those who believe in Him will be persecuted. Likewise, I always believe in this. Since we are born to this controlling family, accept and embrace them. Let your Light & Salt shine on them, instead of them controlling over you. At the same time, I still want to emphasize on this. Since we were born in Malaysia, let our Light & Salt shine on the people here. Not leaving Malaysia. We are all born in Malaysia for a reason and the reason is to share God's Light & Salt to Malaysia. Leaving Malaysia does not make you a strong believer. Instead it makes you weaker because you cannot even shine in Malaysia, and you choose elsewhere to shine. 

     I always tell this to my students. Green pasture is never the other side of the fence. It is always where you are standing now. Even though where you are standing now looks ugly and in bad situation, by God's grace, if you can do something about it, it will become beautiful one day if you work hard on it. Same case as my friend. If he were to continue to pray and ask God for intervention, his family members can change. I was also facing a lot of hardship with my family, especially my mom. But I prayed for them to go to church, she changed a lot. I mean literally change, although she is still grumpy and controlling. I believe that persevere is always the best medicine when it comes to difficulty. Persevere and prayers.  

     Before I end this blog, let me include this blog with a Bible verse. 2 Corinthians 12: 9 - 10 (NKJV)

9. And He said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness." Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmites, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ's sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong. 

     Paul can just give up on His walk with Jesus and do anything he wanted. I mean he is after all, a Roman citizen (Acts 22: 22 - 29). Rome, at that time, was the superpower, just like America now. So if anyone touches a Roman citizen at that time, that person will have trouble. Like I said, Paul the Apostle can do anything as Roman citizen during his time. But what he did? He choose to believe in Christ Jesus. To live for Him. In another word, he gave up his life and follow King of Jews. Ever since he follow Jesus, he did not live a good life (2 Corinthians 11: 23 - 30). So do we all still think that listening to our parents and leaving Malaysia is still a big issue? 

     God bless.

The Ugliness of Christmas

     Finally, I have had time to blog here, although it is a bit late now. But then Christmas is approaching and now is already Christmas Eve. Well lately, I read a comment by a fellow brother and I want to share his thoughts, which I believe is an interesting topic to world about the birth of Christ.
     Christmas, as we all know, is everyone's favorite season of the year. This includes yours faithfully, me. Well it is one of the most happening season in the year, all thanks to our mass media. But like it or not, despite all the beautiful things about Christmas, there are too ugliness of Christmas. You may asked, WHAT?!? Well you heard it right. Despite all beautiful things about Christmas, there are ugly side about Christmas as well. I do not mean to spoil your Christmas mood here, but let us do some soul searching of ourselves and begin to understand the true meaning of Christmas.
     Well Christmas, as we all know, is a day of remembrance of our Lord Jesus Christ's birth on this earth 2,000 years ago. Christmas is not His exact birth date. In fact, no one knows His exact birthday. But do you know that before Jesus was actually born, there are a few ugly incidents had happened. One of it was Herod the Great announced the massacre of all innocent baby boys who were two years old and under, just to make sure Jesus was not to be born. Herod the Great did the order because he was the King of Jews. Jesus was the rumored to be the King of Jews, the Messiah, even before He was born. So if Jesus were killed when He was a baby, Herod the Great will remained as the King of Jews.
     As we celebrate Christmas in the most happening and most clean way, Jesus was born in a stable whereby the inn they (Joseph and Mary) are supposed to stay to give birth to baby Jesus was full. In the end, Mary need to give birth in a stable, where all the animal poops and pees were located. The place where baby Jesus was born was a dirty place. No one were willing to give a pregnant lady a place to give birth to her baby. Imagine now. If a pregnant lady was standing at the MRT, would you have had given her your seat, at least? Perhaps, we as a normal human, in this current world would given up our room for just one night for this poor pregnant Mary to have a place to give birth to her son. But the sad truth about the story 2,000 years ago, was that no one gave Mary anywhere to give birth to baby Jesus and this story are still mentioned even after Jesus' birth, 2,000 years later.
     Nine month before baby Jesus was born, when God send angel Gabriel to tell Mary that she was to  be pregnant and be the vessel to give birth to baby Jesus, it was a rule of that time that there shall not be any pregnancy without marriage. If you ever get pregnant, it must be done after marriage. If not, the girl can be stoned to death. That was how strict the law of the time. You can imagine Joseph's reaction when Mary told him about the incident. Mary obeyed what was told to her without rebelling. She questioned the sanity of having pregnant before even married to Joseph but she obeyed God. As of Joseph, he can just break off with her and get another wife which to him would be "purer" than Mary. But he, too, chose to obey God and marry Mary anyway. You can imagine the difficulties they had to face when they go through with their own daily life. When a person gave birth before the right time, people can notice. Now, people might not be bothered about others giving birth before the right time but people during those time of Joseph and Mary were different. I am sure it was their right to make sure everything turned up well. All both of them did was be obedient and I am sure they would not had thought what they did in their obedient towards God was a miracle God gave to the world.
     So let us all be reminded that Christmas is all about Jesus Christ and Him alone. Well, we are nothing compared to Him. He came to the earth to save the whole world from the sin. Only Jesus can save. Otherwise, why would a lot of ugly things happened just to make sure Jesus was born? If Jesus was not born into this world, then there won't be any Christmas. Christmas was never about Santa Claus. In fact, Saint Nicholas was just doing a good deed on Christmas Eve, serving God as 4th century Greek Christian Bishop. He was famous for giving gifts to the poor and cared for them. In the end, his deed became bigger than what Jesus had done.
     Let us continue to be reminded that Jesus is all that we all need. The world is lost and in need of a leader who can give them comfort. Therefore, Santa Claus was created. Just for everyone's comfort. Why not, in this special season, let us live our life for Jesus. Let us live in Jesus' comfort and not Santa's. Let us put our focus on Jesus Christ. He was born to save us from sin. Let us be reminded of God's faithfulness to us through the birth of Jesus Christ. Let us be reminded that God can make all ugly incident of our life to become a beautiful and wonderful life. Just like how being even baby Jesus was born, their parent and the sacrifice of 2 years old and below's babies had to endured. Christmas is not just a time to have fun and partying all night. It is not wrong to do have fun and partying all night on Christmas but Christmas is also a time to reflect back what Jesus had done for us and how He suffered His life on the cross for us. Remember this. From inside Mary's womb right up to His death on the cross, He did not live a good life. Everyone wants Him dead, even when He was in Mary's womb.
     This is the beauty of Christmas. God turned everything ugly into everything beautiful. The birth of Jesus Christ had now became one of the most happening season of the year, despite all the ugly and sad incidents He had to go through 2,000 years ago. So let us acknowledge our beloved Lord Jesus Christ when we celebrate Christmas.
     If you are convicted after reading this sharing to want to know more about our Lord Jesus Christ, please feel free to say this Sinner's prayer.

Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe that You died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. I turn away from sins and invite You to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and believe You as my Lord and Savior. In Your Name, Amen.

     Well please go to a church nearby you and grow spiritually there. If you need help in understanding more about our Lord Jesus Christ, please feel free to ask me here. I am more than willing to answer your questions.
     Anyway time's up. Just want to wish all my readers, a blessed 2016 Christmas. May this Christmas continues to bring everyone Joy, Love and Peace wherever you go. God bless. =)

Emotions - God's touch

     I just had an outburst with my uncle at his house today. I was very pissed off when he kept on nagging me over matter of his own. He told me to control my temper and should not lose it easily. He told me that we should control our temper as we are Christians.
     Well a question to ponder. Do Jesus shows His emotions to people around Him? He show it throughout His journey on earth. He show it when He healed a leper of the disease. It can be found in the Bible, Mark 1: 40 - 41 (NKJV)

40 Now a leper came to Him, imploring Him, kneeling down to Him and saying to Him, "If You are willing, You can make me clean." 41 Then Jesus, moved with compassion, stretched our His hand and touched him, and said to him, "I am willing; be cleansed."

     He also showed compassion in Luke 7 : 13. 

13 When the Lord saw her, He had compassion on her and said to her. "Do not weep."

     Jesus also show His anger when He deals with people around Him. In Mark 3:5, 
5 And when He had looked around at them with anger, being grieved by the hardness of their hearts, He said to the man, "Stretch out your hand." And he stretched it out, and his hand was restored as whole as the other. 

     The worst part of Jesus being angry stated in the Bible was shown in the book of John 2: 13 - 17.

13 Now the Passover of the Jews was at hand, and Jesus went to Jerusalem. 14 And He found in the temple those who sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the money changers doing business. 15 When He had made a whip of cords, He drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and the oxen, and poured out the changers' money and overturned the tables. 16. And He said to those who sold doves, "Take these things away! Do not make My Father's house a house of merchandise!" 17 Then His disciples remembered that it was written, "Zeal for Your has eaten."

     Jesus wept over Jerusalem. In Luke 19: 41 - 44, it was written:

41 Now as He drew near, He saw the city and wept over it, 42 saying, "If you had known, even you, especially in this your day, the things that make for your peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes. 43 For days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment around you, surround you and close you in on every side, 44 and level you, and your children within you, to the ground; and they will not leave in you one stone upon another, because you did not know the time of your visitation."  

     The shortest Bible verse of all is John 11 : 35

35 Jesus wept

     Jesus also show joy when He thank God for all the blessing received. It is shown in Luke 10 : 21.

21 In that hour Jesus rejoice in the Spirit and said, "I thank You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things the wise and prudent and revealed them to babes. Even so, Father, for so it seemed good in Your sight. 

     Jesus show love too. This can be found in Mark 10 : 21

21 Then Jesus, looking at him, loved him, and said to him, "One thing you lack: Go your way, sell whatever you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, take up the cross, and follow Me."

     It can also be found in John 11 : 3.

3 Therefore the sisters sent to Him, saying, "Lord, behold, he whom You love is sick,"

     These are some of the emotions Jesus shown during His days on earth. The question is He showed His emotion. Are we showing any or are we just being a robot Christian to the world? Are we being real or fake? You ask yourself this. No one in this world is born perfect but everyone is tying to be perfect. Instead why not we just being real and truthful to ourselves? After all, truthful of our emotions is one part of how we are being healed by God. No one can touch us unless we allow God to do so. We allow God to touch us through our emotions. We cried when it was necessary to cry. To release all hurts and angers to God. We show happiness when we are happy. We show anger when we are angry. We show compassion when we are being kind to people surrounding us. Let God heal us through our emotions and not through our hardened heart. God bless.

A blessing of God from tithing

Just want to take this opportunity to share a testimony to everyone of how God's glory is shown to me.

Last night (27th Feb'16), I met with an accident whereby I accidentally drove my car and knocked on a pillar of a building. My car's back bumper was dented. I was told that to repair the dented back bumper of the car and to repaint my car I need about RM200 plus. I was so sad when I heard of the news. Where am I going to get such money to repair and repaint the car? 

God reminded me of His blessings towards me. Last Monday, a colleague of mine hitched a ride with me to work. She told me that she will be hitching ride with me to work for three weeks. As a token of appreciation, she gave me RM100 as my petrol allowance.

Then I went for a yearly body checkup. The actual amount of the full body checkup was RM160 but I was told that I just need to pay RM100 for the checkup because I was given a discount of RM65. In the end, I just pay RM100 using the exact same amount of money my colleague gave me for the petrol allowance. You may asked what does it got to do with anything?

Okay. Come back to last night story. My salary is always enough for me to sustain my daily use including my car petrol and I was thinking how was I supposed to get the RM200 for the repair and repaint? God once again reminded me of His blessing. Remember the RM160 I was supposed to pay for my full body checkup? I thought I can save that money for rainy days since I no longer need it to pay for the body check up. Guess what? That money have its own use as well. I was supposed to use that RM160 to pay for the repair and repaint of my dented car. But then this was just RM160 and not even RM200. I thought I will just use my own salary to raise the other RM40. 

But then, I remembered that last week, I received RM66 for my subsistence allowance (I attended an outstation training in December 2015 and I received subsistence allowance for that training) and I represented my company to visit a funeral and I claimed that journey from my office to the funeral parlour for my mileage claim. I do not know the reason why I needed to attend the training and the funeral parlour. Guess what? Now I know. With both RM160 and RM66 combined together, I now have RM226, which is more than enough to pay for the repair and repaint of the car.  Praise God for His blessing. 

Just want to take this opportunity to thank God for His blessing towards me. Well. God does not see how much you have in your bank account, but He sees your heart. When you give God your tithes (10% of your gross salary) with all your heart, mind and soul, God bless you back. He bless you with things you do not even know. I am not be a rich person. In fact, my salary is just enough to sustain for me alone. But when an emergency happens, that's when your faith is tested. You might asked. "Is it for real"? Well, I can tell you this. It is for real because I had tasted His blessings towards me. He does not give monetary items all the time but He also bless you with good health, promotions etc etc. He wants to bless you but will you allow Him to bless you? A lot of time, I faced difficulties and challenges in life. But yet He blessed me in His marvelous way. Not much of what we had in mind, but He bless us in time of needs. 

The Bible stated very clearly about tithes giving. In Malachi 3: 8 - 10 (NKJV)

8 “Will a man rob God?
Yet you have robbed Me!
But you say,
‘In what way have we robbed You?’
In tithes and offerings.
9 You are cursed with a curse,
For you have robbed Me,
Even this whole nation.
10 Bring all the tithes into the storehouse,
That there may be food in My house,
And try Me now in this,”
Says the Lord of hosts,
“If I will not open for you the windows of heaven
And pour out for you such blessing
That there will not be room enough to receive it.

In Malachi 3:10, God is asking us to test Him by bringing our tithes to Him and we can clearly see whether He really bless us or not. 
So, dear all, please learn to give your tithes to God. You shall see marvelous blessing when you do, just like me, who had tasted His blessings even in small, small matters.

Thank you.

Christian's direction for Christ

     Wow! It has been ages since my last blog. Well I had been pretty busy with my working life lately. Therefore there is nothing much to share. But I just want to share something that I came to learn. Lately, there has been a lot of events happening in Malaysia. Our Ringgit currency had depreciate badly lately. Racist remarks and political unstable has been hitting badly on Malaysia lately.
     Well, because of these events, a lot of my fellow Malaysians had migrated to another country. Sad to know that a lot of Christians are leaving Malaysia as well. Well people always said that the land the other side are greener and better than where we are right now. As I am working in education line, I always share this to my fellow students. Please stay in Malaysia. Malaysia needs us, regardless of religions and races we are in. There are a lot of potential in Malaysia that we can achieve in this country. Then yesterday, one thought came to my mind. I find it very refreshing and I am sharing it to you all.
     As Christians, we are always searching for direction from God. We always want to know what is God's will for us. We had prayed and prayed and prayed but it seems that God did not say anything to us or perhaps we are too busy to listen to Him. Well, somehow or rather I got mine. I came to realise that my direction for God is in Malaysia. I mean to stay and fight for the rights of Malaysians. You may say that in Malaysia, there is nothing that we can do to stop the injustice and unfairness. Well guess what? We can do something about it. I mean I chose to stay in Malaysia, to work and die for Malaysia. I believe (not just guess anymore) that being Malaysians, everyone's direction in life for God is for Malaysia. To fight injustice, to fight unfairness and to fight racism. How can we do that?        First and foremost, focus yourself living in Malaysia regardless of how bad the country is going through right now. I believe that is what God wants us to do now. Not just praying alone, but the action that we should do is to stay and find job in Malaysia. You may say WHAT!? Living in this country at this time? People may said there is NO future for those who are staying in Malaysia. Guess what? There is. God is our future. We depend solely on Him alone. I do believe that if you choose to leave Malaysia, you are choosing to leave God's blessing away for you. You do not want the blessing He is going to give to Malaysia. A lot of prophecies had been given to Malaysia. A lot of blessings of God had been mentioned for Malaysia. A lot of taboos had somehow or rather been broken in Malaysia and this is God's blessing for us. You may think that we are a fool for staying in Malaysia for God. Guess what? God use the world's fool to shame the wise. God is using us Malaysians staying in Malaysia to be a tool of blessings to Malaysia and to the world.
     This may sound harsh but I do believe that those leaving Malaysia for a greener pasture is like Jonah leaving Nineveh for whale's belly. You know we are living in wicked time of the era. Everyone are free to do what they want. They are free to declared themselves unrighteous to God. God is looking for those who will seek His will. For Malaysians, I do believe that His will is for us to stay and fight for Malaysia's rights, declaring God's sovereignty over Malaysia. You may say we can do it in another country where we are living now. Guess what? You do not go through the hardship that we are facing now in Malaysia. You are praying and declaring God's blessing at your own comfort. God do not want us to live in comfort zone. He wants us to live through a life that is strong. You think Paul, John and Peter has had a wonderful life when they served God? No. They don't. They go through a lot of trials for the sake of His people. Are we not be like that as well?
     Secondly, when you pray for God's will to be done in Malaysia, you are not just praying for the sake of praying. You pray because you believe that good things will come upon Malaysia. So why in the end you choose to leave Malaysia? Do you not believe in your own prayer? Why not you stay and see God's miracle working in Malaysia and in you? Make it this way. You love to see God's miracle happening? Then stay and experience it. It might not be now that the miracle happen but it will. Believe in your own prayer and experience God's blessing for yourself. If you are in another pasture, you will see it but you won't experience it. It's like God had blessed your friend miraculously and you are just there to see your friend being blessed but you do not get the chance to experience the same blessing.
     Anyway I am not asking you all to stay in Malaysia for no apparent reason. I am asking you all to stand together for Malaysia in Christ Jesus. Together, we stand up and fight for Malaysia. If every Malaysians were to leave Malaysia for the sake of greener pasture, who else will fight for the country? Let us make staying and defending the country our direction for God. Let us become the light for Christ in this time of suffering. Let us not give up but persevere on. If you are going to finish your studies overseas, please come back. If you are working in another country, consider coming back. Malaysia seriously needs you. God is looking for those who wants to seek His will. I strongly believe that coming back to Malaysia is your first move. Of course and unless God calls you to do otherwise. Perhaps go for mission elsewhere than Malaysia. If God is not calling you to do that, I do believe that God's will for you is in Malaysia. That is our first step.
     Anyway if you think Malaysia have no future for your children, remember this. God have a future for you and your children in Malaysia. Our direction is from God, not men, Not even in a country. Amen? =)

Is migrating a good choice for Malaysian Christians?

     I was reading some news from the web and an interesting news pop up. It is a story whereby a lot of Malaysians (I am a Malaysian) left the country for a better future. One of the few significant places they migrate to are Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, USA, UK etc etc. I was also asked to leave Malaysia for a brighter future for myself, my future wife (if I have one now) and perhaps my future kids.
     To be honest, I choose to stay in Malaysia regardless of anything. I am a Christian. I choose to stay here to give hope to the hopeless. I choose to stay because I was born here. Not elsewhere. If everybody especially the Malaysian Christians choose to leave rather than stay and be the hope for others, what would happen to Malaysia? You may call me stupid or a fool, but despite all the political and economic turmoil, are we seriously living in hell? Few years back, a Christian friend of mine told me that he was finding a job in New Zealand because he is poor and could not afford to take care of his parent. So going to New Zealand to work, he can use the money earned there to bring back to Malaysia for his parent's use. For everyone's information, he is paying for the loan of two Toyotas, one Vios, (I can't remember the other car model), one apartment in Kota Damansara and he was earning big fat RM5,000. Okay. RM5,000 is not big but few years back it was still big. It was before 2010. As of me, I do not own anything. No car and no house and my parent still can live a good life.
     Anyway, the reason I am writing this blog is just to say that despite all the turmoil in Malaysia, I do believe there is still hope in Malaysia. One thing I was say is this. Let us do things not just for the sake of our children's future alone. We ought not to do so (from a Christian to another Christian). If everything that we do, we do for the sake our children only, then there is no point living in this life. Why I say that? It is as though we all are living like Jonah. Jonah ran away from God's calling. God's calling for him was to preach the gospel to Nineveh, a place of wickedness but he ran away and fell into a whale's belly. (Please read the whole Book of Jonah to know what happened). We were born in Malaysia and being Malaysians, we are to preach gospel to the lost in Malaysia. You might not directly preach to them but by being supportive over them and guide them in life, it is also considered as a hope to the lost. We are to be called as salt and light of the world. But are we really doing it? If something bad happened to your surrounding (for example, Malaysia), you ran away and migrate elsewhere. Where is the salt and the light in that manner? So if something bad happened in the new country you reside now, you migrate again. Then you are not salt and light of the world. You can say there won't be any bad things happened in this new country but how do you know. Even Sabah (one state in Malaysia located in Borneo Island) was facing earthquake 3 times in a month. Never in my life I face such a news in Malaysia. Malaysia is always a country whereby no natural disaster happened before. The only disaster happened before was the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami which affected Malaysia as well. But other than that, there is no disaster happened in Malaysia. But yet earthquake in Sabah was something new to me, which leads me to believe that we are living in the end times now.
     What I am trying to say is this. If you want to obey God and be the salt and light of the world, please consider Malaysia as part of your choice of destination. We are the light and salt of the world. If all Christians leave Malaysia for the betterment of their life, then who will protect and defense the defenseless in Malaysia. Malaysia is no longer like the good old times. Malaysia is in need of hope. We should stand up and be the hope to Malaysia. I do believe in this. If we choose to stand up for God, our future will also be bright. In fact brighter because we are serving a living God. We do what God told us to do. Be a difference. We give back what we received before. What our children need is not some theory education anymore. Yes. We still need to teach them theory education, like how to be a good person. But we must also show it up. One way to do that is to be a living testimony to people surrounding us in Malaysia. I believe that by staying back in Malaysia and earning lower pay than your friends elsewhere, alone is a living testimony. Your friends might earn big money but is their life complete? Let your children see this, that money is not everything but helping others who are in need are more important. When they know this, they can survive anywhere. But if you think of securing their future overseas, you are just spoiling them. In times to come, they can't even survive without even a spoon fed. Remember how we were always been spoon fed during our education life? And at the end, do we know learn anything out of it? In fact some were complaining our education system sucks. Guess what? You are the product of the spoon fed yourself if you actually wants to secure their future by migrating elsewhere. You do not need to do big things for Malaysia. Be everyone's friends regardless of their races. Do not just be a friend to same skin colour alone. That alone is a testimony. There is a reason why we were all born in Malaysia. We should be the there to defend everyone regardless of their races. To me, we do not need to go elsewhere to bless the poor, we can even do it in Malaysia. 
     So I hope everyone understand my worries. I am worrying that life in Malaysia is no longer the same anymore since a lot of people are migrating. God is looking for someone with the heart to serve Him. Let's make the decision of living in Malaysia be the motive you want serve Him. Amen.
