President’s Message: God seats on the Throne

In 2016, the Book of Exodus was the bible study guide in our hospital fellowship group. Embedded in its pages is an indelible mark of a King whose authority is evident in every human affair, whether political, economic, social, personal or corporate. There is nothing He does not know nor see.

Leaders, Heads of state, CEOs, hospital authorities come and go. He raises them up and brings them down( Dan 2:21). God alone remains seated, undisplaced and unchanging. History is in His hands. His Kingdom is unshakeable (Heb 12:27).

We enter the year 2017 filled with uncertainties. The economic turbulence, shifting alliances in politics add to our insecurity. Some settle for ‘whatever will be, will be’ or ‘leave everything to God’ attitude. Clearly this is not the way of Scripture. A mental assent of God’s truth with no inward change of heart, declares itself in religious activities and spiritual stagnation amidst wearisome earthly concerns.

The list is long. Children’s education, aging parents, health problems, workplace ‘politics’, relational issues, business risks, financial loss, etc. Vexed, we ask “ God are you there and do you really care?”

Who can offer us answers more than our Lord Jesus can? Even so, there are preachers who offer God’s favor, ‘name and claim’ blessings, as well as positive thinking techniques apart from the full counsel of God-messages and teachings that leave one with good feelings, but definitely deceptive and dangerous.

Christmas and New Year are seasons of rest, reflection and worship. In the quiet shelter and simplicity of every home, let us take time to remember the awesome power and love of our Lord. 2016 events provide a panorama of the history of a recent past. The present and future work of our King in our lives and the nations will be fulfilled in all its fullness according to His purposes. He alone is the source of life, hope and peace for all the nations of the world.

How then shall we live? Because He is on the throne, we can live without anxiety, frustration and futility and with no fear of the future. Whatever our circumstance and situation, we can call upon His name and be like a tree planted by the waters, yielding fruit throughout the seasons of drought (Jer 17:7,8). He promises to complete the good work He began in us( Phil 1:6). How wonderful!

Wishing you and your beloved family a blessed New Year! Dr Boey

Meetings with Leonora van TonderMeetings with Leonora van Tonder

Meetings with Leonora van Tonder

6 July 2016

22 brethen attended a full day seminar on ‘Spiritual Warfare’ by Leonora. She taught on the nature of spiritual warfare and how a Christian can take responsibility to handle the battles they are engaged in. True spiritual warfare is not a war fought with mantras and incantations but rather with spiritual truth. It was an extremely practical and useful seminar.

19-22 October 2016

Divine Plumbline

Leonora conducted the Divine Plumbline teaching. She was assisted by facilitators, Ms Ivy Alcarde, Dr Anita Lim and Tan Chiew Hwa. 9 ladies, 3 of whom were full-time workers from Mynamar,attended the 9am – 5pm sessions. They were deeply blessed by the teaching of Dr Bruce Thompson. Through tears and sharing, many lies of the enemy were broken and freedom in Christ secured.

HCF Singapore has been greatly blessed by Leonora. This final visit in Singapore prior to her retirement was filled with thanksgiving to our heavenly Father for His gift of Leonora to us. She touched many lives with her godly counsel and Christ-like care. She laboured and declared God’s truth to us. Truth that purifies and transforms us and equip us for the work of ministry. Her perservering spirit and faithfulness to the Lord will forever be logged in our memory of her. She truly is a spiritual mother to many.

“For though you have countless guides in Christ, you do not have many fathers. For I became your father in Christ Jesus through the gospel.” 1 Cor 4:15 ESV

The Invisible Kingdom Of God

Pastor Tsukahira kindly set aside time to meet with us despite his busy schedule of meetings with the local churches in Singapore. On a Saturday evening, 31 participants gathered in the National University Hospital to learn about the Kingdom of God,which was the key message in the earthly ministry of our Lord Jesus Christ. The rule of God as King in our lives is a mark of true discipleship. It cannot be hidden and is manifested and made visible. What wonderful news we bring to the world!

Patients were brought to salvation and in answer to prayer they witnessed how the Lord drew many healthcare workers to serve Him in one accord. The Singapore delegation included Dr Stephen Chew, Chiew Hwa, Dr Prima ( and daughter Goli) and Dr Boey. The latter shared on “Discipleship in Healthcare” . The next day we went bird watching. Led by veteran bird expert, Dr Kwan, we worshipped the Lord in the open fields, accompanied by a great variety of beautiful birds and creation. There was a sweet spirit of unity and love amongst the brethren in HongKong. We left HK greatly inspired and encouraged by them and deeply grateful to our Father for strengthening our relationship as a family in healthcare.

Testimony of JCHC

8 Sep 2016

I was diagnosed with Systemic Lupus Erythematousus (SLE) in 1991 and treated with oral corticosteroids for many years.As a child in a Christian school, I “accepted” Jesus Christ as my personal Saviour. I believe that the seed of the gospel was sown then, although it did not bloom till my mid-forties.

When I had SLE, well- meaning Christian friends brought me to different churches and “healing” services. However, I doubted the existence of God and I did not have the faith to believe in Him.

On 16 July 2015, I went to one of the many regular checkups with my long time rheumatologist / immunologist, Dr Boey.
We had a tough conversation about my health and I started to get agitated and anxious. Suddenly, Dr Boey asked; “Can I pray for you?” I thought: “If someone wants to help me, why not? So I said “Sure!”.

When I repeated the words of a prayer after her, I experienced an avalanche of intense emotions. I couldn’t stop crying and my body heaved with sobs as I prayed to be forgiven, this time with conviction. On that day, I was born of the Spirit. I tasted a fruit of the Spirit; faith. I finally understood what it meant to take a leap of faith and did what my Christians have been telling me for so long: only believe!

Following that life changing moment, I was hungry to learn more and attended the Alpha course that was newly launched in a neighborhood church. It was part of their Market Place ministry which was generously sponsored and supported by a couple of Christian Venture Capitalists. The timing of their sessions and the venue were ideal for me. God had planned it so perfectly!

It was a great way to start my Christian walk. I met inspiring Christians in a friendly environment. I thoroughly enjoyed the 15 weeks of lessons. I was then invited by a long-time, close friend to the Bible Study Fellowship (BSF). Study of the book of Revelation in 2016 is a first for BSF in Singapore. There was a bumper crop of students. Despite doubling the sessions, places were very scarce. Since I was not a pre-existing student, my chances of enrolling were slim. I chuckled when the speaker said; “If you don’t get a phone call from us, don’t call us, just pray.” I knew BSF was hard work so I thought the possibility of nonselection was a great way to get off the hook! God knew better and to my surprise, I was offered a place.

After 3 months in BSF, I was taken off the steroids completely! As a new believer and a newbie in BSF, it was mind boggling initially, but the structure of the study, the close fellowship with the group members and the daily walk with the Lord were so gratifying. I learnt to pray and listen to Him through the Word.

Being close to Him allowed God to work in my life. I hardly dared to wish for it, but He knows everything and He gave me what I longed for most; a miracle healing.

On 1st September 2016, I was baptized. Now I am joyful and comforted that I am sealed and marked as a child of God, Praise the Lord!

Caesar’s Household

Hospital Doldrums

“All the saints send you greetings, especially those who belong to Caesar’s household.” Phil 4:22

In his letter to the Philippian church, the apostle Paul referred to the ‘ saints who belong to Caesar’s household’. Who are they and why did Paul mention them? Possibly they were in civil service or government administration.

Caesar’s household was a place of struggle, jealousy, pride and intrigue, of lusts of the flesh and of lust for power. Idolatory was rife and ungodliness was the rule of the day. Can there be saintliness in the midst of godlessness?

Jesus disciples lived in Caesar’s household but their spirits belonged to the household of faith. They displayed the righteousness of God in the midst of wickedness and unrighteousness.

Is your work place similar to that in Caesar’s palace? Do you encounter tensions in relationships, gossips, back stabbing? Have you been by-passed for promotion despite doing your very best? Do you face bosses and colleagues who feel threatened, insecure and immature? Perhaps your working environment is fast-paced, over-driven, demanding, performance orientated and KPI –obsessed. Add to this check list is the daily burden of patient care. Patient’s expectations, non-compliance or sudden demise weigh heavy on your heart. There is more. Don’t forget that teaching and mentoring of students may be a bane or joy to some.

Feel like throwing in the towel? Recently, my cardio-thoracic colleague spoke of a fellow doctor who became disillusioned and bitter about the ‘system’ that is slow to change for the better. The fellow doctor gave up and left the hospital. Yes, some days can be very stressful and filled with an endless cycle of fire-fighting problems that adversely affect our emotional health. Faced with such hostility, anyone can cave in to the temptation to sin.

If this describes you, be of good cheer and courage. The Lord has placed you and I in the network of grace where we, who love Jesus, can be interconnected and pray for each other. Isn’t that wonderful- a work of the Holy Spirit touching someone’s spirit to pray for you.

Our Lord Jesus prayed that His disciples be not taken out of the world but rather be kept from the evil one. He said “As You sent me into the world, I also have sent them into the world.” (John 17: 15,18). He knew His disciples would have to face the inevitable reality of the clash of 2 worlds as they shine brightly in darkness. The world may speak well of your integrity and excellent spirit but will ultimately reject our heavenly Father we bow to. Surely our Lord Jesus is not indifferent or uncaring as our enemy would like us to believe. He knows everything and is sovereign. He allows trials as a means of humbling His servants (Heb 2:10) and through them develop a dependence fully on Him. His grace is more than sufficient and may His glory be displayed in and through us. ( 2 Cor 3:18).

In good or bad circumstances, sadness or laughter, health or illness, may we persevere and press on to finish well. We bear with joy, the priceless treasure found only in Him. Let every manifestation of the excellence of power be of God and not of us. (2 Corinthians 4:7). Then the world can see Him and be drawn to Him.

God’s Faithfulness

2015 marked 30 years of God’s faithfulness to HCF Singapore. Our theme of celebration was “The One who called you is faithful, and He will do it.” 1 Thess 5:24

We exist because of Him. By His mercy and grace we climbed mountains and overcame every obstacle. Our hearts overflow with thanksgiving to a faithful God who is forever our Commander-in-chief.

We enter year 2016 filled with uncertainties. Will the ‘groaning’ of our planet increase: calamities, climate changes, cross border infections, evil, tragedies, injustice etc? Futurists are hopeful for a better tomorrow.

Yet, no one can offer us more than our Lord Jesus can. We can live without frustration and futility and with no fear of the future. Whatever our circumstance and situation, we can call upon His name.

What then shall our focus be? Jesus Christ our Lord-knowing Him, becoming like Him(Phil 3:10) and growing in spiritual maturity.

May we be found faithful in running well the race of life; labouring as apostle Paul did, with all the energy and wisdom He gives, presenting each to God, perfect in relationship to Christ. Col 1: 28,29.

Have a truly blessed New Year!

ST JAMES CHURCH INVOLVEMENT IN THE HOSPITAL OUTREACH MINISTRY

By Pastor Lucy Kwok

I am Lucy Kwok, a pastoral staff of St James’ Church. In my pastoral work, I have had a great desire to reach out to the sick in hospital, to encourage patients and show love to them.Although we visit the sick in our local congregation, there are many lying in the hospitals who look forward to some one to cheer them up. In year 2000, Dr Michael Lim spoke with me regarding forming a team to join the Healthcare Christian Fellowship (HCF) and reach out to patients during Christmas. I readily accepted his proposal.I want to thank Dr Boey Mee Leng, who opened the HCF door for us, thus giving us an opportunity to minister to patients in hospitals.We started with a team of about 20 men and women and a guitarist. We practiced singing Christmas carols to patients in Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH). We took with us gifts for patients and sang carols to them. This led on to us participating in the Chinese New Year and Easter outreaches. We donated mandarin oranges and sang Chinese New Year melodies to the patients. During Easter we shared the joy of our risen Lord with them.

From TTSH we branched out to the National University Hospital (NUH). Our goal is for 2 bigger teams of volunteers, each led by a pastor.

What joy it is to be able to bring smiles to the old and the young patients, many of whom are sad and depressed over their sicknesses. Some of them clap along and sing with us. It is so fulfilling. Not only are patients encouraged, our team members are encouraged by the patients’ responses.

During one of our outreaches, a youth in our team, was so touched with his first hospital visit that he is now ‘sold’ out to it. At that time, the 3 regular guitarists in our team, were unavailable for the outreach. I requested for a guitarist from the youth ministry. A mother volunteered her son , Kester. Kester came along and in one of the ward units, we sang a Hokkien song entitled “Hold My Hand”. Tears rolled down from an elderly male patient. Kester was deeply touched and later shared with his mum that he will not miss out on future hospital outreaches. Kester practiced hard to perfect that song.

Recently we were assigned to the CDC in TTSH. The patients are elderly, long- staying patients, and some were waiting for placement in nursing homes. Some shared that their families have not visited them for a long time. It is a sad story, but we are glad that we can bring a little cheer into their lives by our visit. May I encourage church members to visit patients at CDC.

In one of our outreaches in TTSH, a middle aged man accepted Jesus as his Saviour. He phoned me on the day of his discharge and requested to attend church. When he arrived at our church, he asked what must he do when in church, as he has never stepped into a church before. That man was later baptized in our church.

We demonstrate our care for patients by listening, chatting and praying for them. We are so glad that we can encourage them and perhaps impart hope to some. Likewise we feel encouraged and uplifted, as God’s servants, working alongside Him to bring His love to the sick and suffering.

I want to thank HCF again for giving us the opportunity to partner with them for such outreaches. May God use HCF greatly to advance the Kingdom of God. May HCF be the light of God that shines into the lives of those feeling hopeless and encourage them with the news that God cares and loves each of them.

A Jubilee Year

2015 marks the year of Jubilee for Singapore. It is the 50th Celebrations nationwide are in order as we remember our journey and struggles as a small nation. We praise God for His hand of mercy and grace towards us and acknowledge that He reigns over nations. (Psalms 47: 8)

What does Jubilee mean for us in health care? The concept of Jubilee is rooted in the Old Testament.(Leviticus 25:8-55) It flowed from the heart of God, not from man. During the Jubilee Year, debts were cancelled, slaves were released.* There was a restoration of inheritance, family reunion, a year’s vacation, a year of justice for the oppressed and even the land rested. It was Jehovah God’s proclamation of freedom. What a God!

At Calvary, Jesus became our Jubilee. Through the Cross and His resurrection, He declared liberty to the whole world. There is freedom from the penalty and power of sin, from the giants of fear and Satanic bondages, and freedom to experience healing of relationships and joy to serve the poor and work for social justice.* The Jubilee is a year of release, restoration, rest and rejoicing. Yet how many of us experience the fullness of our Jubilee? May we not live in a manner less than what Jesus meant for us.

Let 2015 be a year where we continue to proclaim the Lord’s favour in healthcare. We proclaim that He is Lord of health care and healing. We declare the salvation of our patients, sanctification, holiness and freedom from self, healing of relationships, the defeat of Satan’s plans and purposes, and the reality of a ‘Sabbath rest’ for us all.* He has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and goodness. (2 Peter 1:3)

“SG50” is the 2015 banner over Singapore. We celebrate God’s deliverance of us as a nation. Let us in healthcare also arise with the message of God’s redemptive purpose for all. Troubles, wars, persecutions will still exist, but we won’t be discouraged. His Word gives us stability and provide sanity in a world broken by sin and evil. Let us serve Him wholeheartedly, knowing that He alone gives meaning and eternal significance to our mission on earth. Have a blessed New Year!

Healthcare Christian Fellowship Caroling, 13 December 2014 National University Hospital

More than 100 Christians from several churches in Singapore gathered at the Obstetrics & Gynaecology Seminar room on the Saturday afternoon of 13 December 2014. Participants were divided into 5 teams of carolers. I had the privilege to serve alongside a group of experienced carolers led by Pastor Lucy from St James Church. We sang in Wards 52 & 53.

We started with a prayer asking for God’s presence to be with us. God indeed prepared the hearts of the patients. To our astonishment, as we approached Ward 52 we received a request from a patient to receive Christ as Saviour. How we praise the Lord for this salvation!

Many patients were attracted by our singing in the wards. We sang to a captive audience in each ward. An elderly lady assisted by a nurse made her way slowly towards us as we sang and she allowed us to minister to her. As we were about to leave the ward, a young lady in a wheelchair expressed her disappointment that she missed out on our singing. We spontaneously sang “Merry Christmas” for her. I was also impressed by St. James carolers ability to sing in dialects. Elderly patients and their family members were able to sing along with us.

We had opportunities to chat with patients and some of them allowed us to pray with them. I prayed with an elderly, demented gentleman and his Indonesian domestic helper. We ended the visit by distributing gifts and wishing our patients peace and a speedy recovery.

I sensed the presence of God with us as we sang and prayed for the patients and I believe that many patients and their families were touched by Him a special way.

I was deeply touched and humbled that God could use me to bless the patients and hospital staff. We brought warmth and cheer to the gloomy and depressed looking wards. Above all, we thank God that most of the patients were open and willing to be prayed for. May our prayers bring comfort, hope and healing to their souls and bodies.

All Glory be to God!

TESTIMONIES OF THE CONFERENCE

Conference CD now available

Our Lord God greatly blessed me personally as He led me to hear the sermons, speeches and presentations of Ptr. Peter Tsukahira during the Global Prayer Summit and the HCF Conference. My eyes were opened to see my Hebrew heritage as a believer in Christ Jesus, the Jewish Messiah. I came to realize that to fully grasp the meaning, the mission and the destiny of my life as a Christian I have to trace my roots way back to the times of the original Jews when God established His Kingdom in all areas of the Jewish society. Not knowing or ignoring what God said and did and commanded during the times of Abraham and the other patriarchs is like watching a movie after the first half intermission. I may know how it would end but I will not benefit from knowing the what’s, the who’s, the why’s and the how’s that led to the film’s joyful and exciting ending. I was deeply impacted by the revelation that today as in the past God’s Kingdom must permeate and manifest in every area of society. His Kingdom should also reign in my life — physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually — so I can play a significant role in these last days as biblical prophesies are being fulfilled. I am grateful to God and to the summit and conference speakers, staff and organizers, as well, for enabling me to take home the enlightenment that I can find and have a strong foundation for my beliefs and actions as a follower of Christ in my ancient Hebraic roots. EDUARDO P. TAN JR.
—————————————————————————————————————-
I have gained a new lease on my self confidence, which took a serious blow some time ago. As I mentioned previously, I felt that I was tainted and not worthy of being a part of any Conference offered by HCF. The folk from Singapore through the grace of God have really lifted me up and given me the freedom to witness again, without feeling guilty. May the Lord richly bless you all. You are a wonderful people and I know that the Lord is blessing the work of HCF Singapore.
————————————————————————————————————–
The communion service was beautiful; very meaningful and special. It was anointed. When Dr Arul asked who was struggling with grief and asked people to stand up, I stood up and grief which had been bubbling beneath the surface came up and I could lay it at the cross.
—————————————————————————————————————-

It was about 4 months back that I first heard about the Singapore conference from one of the HCF members in Tansen, Nepal. I had not applied for my passport then. I later applied and thanks be to God, all went well. Registration for GPS and HCFI conference had already been done. But still I was short of a lot of money; I needed money for tickets, accommodation etc. Still praying I was able to proceed. Every time I am in need, God provides!
Yes, it was my first ever international trip/flight. I was pretty excited to go and things began to happen well for me.
The Name tag of each nation (which included map of the country, population and religions) for prayer was the remarkable one for me.
Dr Arul is always inspiring and very good for me. His speech about community transformation was very moving for me. John 19:25-27 speaks of a new home, fellowship and he also mentioned the characteristics of the Bride; Precious loved Bride, a service, sacrificial saintly Bride, suffering-yet a joyful Bride, worshiping warrior Bride and waiting & watching Bride. What a splendid description!
Pastor Peter’s messages about God’s Tsunami-the gospel still moving to the west and personal transformation were moving. Gifts are not like those given by Santa claus. They are designed for us which is His calling – a process which comes with supernatural empowerment- an example being Jacob who got an inheritance from his father and later had his name changed to Israel. So God’s plan was different. Messages were most remarkable for me!
I am very happy with the management, hospitality, accommodation and food…GREAT…Praise the LORD!! Thank you for all your prayers, encouragement and support. Bless you!

I applaud HCF for the effort to organize this conference and engaging outstanding teachers for each of the plenary sessions as well as for the workshops. I must not forget to mention the Partners Sharing as well. I am grateful for the teachers and partners’ willingness to share and I had truly benefited from this conference.

As the speakers mentioned, we are living in exciting and challenging times. May every delegate catch the wave of God’s purposes these opportunities bring about.

God Bless. Pastor Tan Lat Hoon Gilbert

I have attended many Christian Medical and Healthcare conferences but this one was something very special. Rarely have I come away with my horizons so expanded. The two day prayer summit was a new experience for me and I found both the excellent Bible studies and the time around tables praying for so many aspects of the work God has called us to do exhilarating. The main conference was a somewhat hectic time as I was involved in running a seminar stream, but the wonderful mix of people from very diverse situations was perhaps a foretaste of God’s Kingdom. We were brilliantly looked after (thank you so much) and though I returned to UK tired HCFI Singapore was an experience I will never forget.

Thank you, John Greater, PRIME

The unity in prayer and worship was remarkable. I arrived at the conference venue tired, but I was refreshed and strengthened day after day. Following the Word of God shared by the speakers I took a new commitment to serve the Lord even more.

I take my hat off to my Singaporean sisters and brothers for their helpfulness, their Christian love, their efficiency and kindness, their working together like a little colony of co-operative ants – not showing off how well they do things, but they do! Well done!
Dr Helen Englert
Would rank as one of the best conferences I’ve ever attended, if not the best. Wasn’t overly keen on coming- required some coercion – but, wow, look forward to the next one!

HCF Singapore will be blessed by the Lord for organising this conference in such a wonderful way. So I am convinced He will say ” Well done dear brothers and sisters!”
