Group photo with the youths at Christian City Church

I received an invitation to speak at a church more than three months ago. But before I was told of the church’s name, the informant went missing in action. I didn’t hear from him again until late February. I was told that he had been out of the country and got in touch with me as soon as he returned.

At Klang’s Christian City Church this evening, I told my story and faith before fifty enthusiastic youths. This speech at C3 was a milestone. I told my story in the spiritual perspective for the first time. Usually, I would tell my story as it happened and let the audience decide for themselves how my faith in God brought me thus far because I believe people have a mind of their own. There are some things that people don’t have to be told directly. I also didn’t want to risk sounding hollier-than-thou.

But I was invited by a church this time. The main reason these youths were in church was to know God. That was the reason they were there to hear me speak, so I gladly told them my story while showing how God safeguarded my childhood and prepared me for this day.

During the Q&A session, I was asked a lot of questions to my delight. I always enjoy answering questions from the audience, and today’s group consisted of many inquisitive youths. They asked questions pertaining to my faith, family, education, health and future.

After Q & A, we prayed and took photographs. The youth bought my t-shirts and books which they loved, especially the Original Heart4Hope t-shirt. One sporting guy bought the Original H4H in XXL! C3 also presented me a love offering which was double of what I requested.

Keith Daniel, the informant who invited sent me and two other girls home in the church van. On the way back, he took us to dinner – Ipoh chicken rice and pork meat balls. Yum Yum!

Thank you, Christian City Church!

P/S: C3’s youth pastor happened to have met me before when Inti College’s Christian Fellowship raised funds for my Auditory Brainstem Implant in 2006. What a coincidence!
