  • Jestine and I returned in December to help care for Jacob and my 83-year old mum. Jacob is now nearly bed ridden, and my mum had fallen and badly fractured her left humerus and the top round-shaped bone dislocating her shoulder from the socket of her left hand. We began seeing some amazing, sovereign and intimately loving ways of God unfold. My mum's orthopaedic surgeon, Dr Eugene Wong, turned out to be a caring Christian man who said it was a miracle that she was relatively pain-free for 2 weeks until surgery and has been amazed at the rapid healing and recovery that has taken place thus far. From a bag of broken bones (Dr Wong's description), it has become an encasement of metal pieces as she had to have 5 screws in her socket and another 7 in the humerus to hold the metal plate in place. We are all deeply touched by the love of the Bangsar church family who has helped us in so many ways. Thank you for being Jesus to us in our time of need.
