Ben + 1

It has been a long and painful year for all of us and we find ourselves 1 year since Benjamin's passing from this earth. Gone but never forgotten for sure. A bunch of the youths visited his grave in the morning and we held a brief memorial service.
Bro. Ern Shern has written out a testimonial to ben and would like to share it to spark fond memories in all of us.

Here it is,

Dear Ben,
It’s been around a year since you left us, questions of why God took you back so early still lie in my head. That question I leave God to answer but all I know is that you’re in a much better place.
I can’t imagine how your family feels when even I already miss you this much. I have prayed to God to keep your family strong, that they will continue to trust in God. I’m glad I managed to see and talk to you in the hospital then. That was the last moment I spent with you. Each day I miss you less, the pain of losing you is gone , but you are always in my heart because no one can ever replace you. We used to have a lot in common and memories of you still lie in my heart. I remember sharing songs with you through Bluetooth, seeing you jog around the Andalas court, talking about similar Computer Games .There were many things I learnt from you and eventhough all these memories are not much, I do highly treasure it. I even dream about you sometimes. I do hope to meet you in heaven, but before that , I know I have to be faithful to God until death as you have been..

I’m not the only person that misses you for there are many others…..There are many who can write this letter much better than me.... but this one comes straight from my heart and indeed , words can’t express exactly how I feel … so this is my short letter.

Till We Meet Again in Heaven..
Ern Shern

Be Strong

korek-ed from Randall's Bloggie...

Note from Randall
*this song helped me through thick and thin as the lyrics meant a world to me. for those who are facing trouble, challenges, difficulties, depression, sadness, demotivation, etc etc, i do hope this lyrics will be a secondary source of encouragement beside the word of God...yeah btw..happy birthday to Christian Anchor*

Be Strong and Take Courage

Be Strong And Take Courage
By Don Moen

Be strong and take courage
Do not fear or be dismayed
For the Lord will go before you
And His light will show the way

Be strong and take courage
Do not fear or be dismayed
For the one who lives within you
Will be strong in you today

Why don' you give him all of your fears
Why don't you let him wipe all of your tears
He knows, He's been through pain before
And He knows all that you've been looking for

So, be strong and take courage
Do not fear or be dismayed
For the Lord will go before you
And His light will show the way

Be Strong and take courage
Do not fear or be dismayed
For the one who lives within you
Will be strong in you today

Nothing can take you out of his hand
Nothing can face you can't command
I know that you will always be
In His love, in His power you will be free!!

So, be strong and take courage
Do not fear or be dismayed
For the Lord will go before you
And His light will show the way

Be Strong and take courage
Do not fear or be dismayed
For the one who lives within you
Will be strong in you today

An old Saga Continues

From Randall.C

much of the irony from the proton's saga tagline

i would like to write about my old saga...hhhmm...old junk you say?
you all are so so wrong..
guess beat many other cars today..
no..not in the race or gymkhana..although still possible perhaps
here is the story of it:

it was a rainy exceptionally heavy rain..
my uni was invaded by H2O' was flooding...when i wanted to enter my college..the road was blocked due to flood..can see few pity car stuck there..
so i decided to come in from Jalan UPM at Petronas..
to my was WORSE!!!more car stranded.more frustrated drivers..
i cant turn back..(or TERM-BAK as my lecturer from Iran and Iraq will say). so i decided to brave the waters..

halfway in the flood..i kinda got scared as the flood water was worse than i was deeper than i fathom..water was seeping into my car..suddenly my engine started to jerk~oh my!!bad sign..
but i managed to pull through that peril..
sadly the car in front of me died off..
but i was lucky..
and guess car escaped harmless except for wet interior...
need to get it for dry cleaning..
now my beloved saga is still continuing the journey..
journey as an old car..old but faithful..
shaky but firm..
slow but strong..
i admire my old car..
4G15 - you performed above my expectation and i am happy to be with u and Saga..

i wonder..can we be of that degree? serving our master above our limits...
imagine putting ourself as the car..
we are the saga and God is the driver..well..he is the best driver in town and world...
he is the best in everything..
hats off~!!
but if we encounter challenges such as floods, perils, troubles, and sadness, would we just die off like the car in front of me..or would we persevere and continue to serve our master?

i do hope i can be as reliable as my old saga..

The Saga continues with Randall.C

Little Chef

The Sunday School organised this event which was held last Saturday.
Many youths and adults alike showed up to show support.
Needless to say, the event turned out to be a great success.
I'll let the pictures do the rest of the talking. =)
The turn out.
And the man who made it all possible...
Thanks Uncle Sam! =P

Aunty Chong Foo wrote this wonderful and moving article for today's bulletin. I thought i would post it up for all you guys who didn't manage to get to read it today and for all those youths from other congregations who attended the YDP last year. Hope you guys will take the time to read it and to remember. =)

In Christ We Serve,


"Dear Ben,

It has been seven months since you left us suddenly and prematurely. All of us who knew you were shocked and grieved by the suddenness of your passing. You left as unexpectedly as you had arrived. I still recall that Sunday more than 16 years ago when I passed by Uncle Steven congratulating your parents. When I asked what the well wishes were for, I found out that it was for you – the late surprise package. But for reasons only God knows, you were called back way too soon.

We are saddened by your demise but the grief we feel is nothing compared to what your family is going through. They have lost a son, a brother, a grandson, a nephew, a cousin. The void left by your passing is so huge that it will take a long time for them to come to terms with it. I don’t profess to fathom the depths of sorrow that they are experiencing but if my own feelings can be used as a gauge, then I’d venture to say that the hole you left behind is the size of China, and it’s being patched stitch by painstaking stitch. The needle for the mending of broken hearts is always too small and I would that God dispenses larger needles for faster healing but these things take time.

I hope and pray that your family continues to rely on God. Though they put up a stoic front for each other and for us, they are struggling within themselves. I’ve known you since you were a baby; I’ve watched you grow and witnessed your precociousness. If I still feel the pain of losing you, I imagine that your family members are feeling it a thousand times more.

Though you are gone, you are far from forgotten. Sometimes one of the youths who sit where you usually sat at the front reminds me of you. Something about the hair and shoulders would make me think of you.

I pass by your old school every weekday when I send Su Yen to school. Each time I pass by, I think of you. Su Yen remembers the time she saw you waiting outside the school fence and occasionally she’d pipe up, “Benjamin Koko last time wait there.”

During the last home zone meeting which was held at my house, I was just thinking that if you were here, you’d be sitting at the sofa with a big grin. You’d be wearing that checked t-shirt you seemed to like so much. If we were playing games, you’d be one of the most vociferous.

Why did God claim you back so soon, Ben? We have no answers. But you left us for a better place, clichéd though it may be. We who remain on earth continue our sojourn and I can tell you our journey is wrought with life’s challenges. We encounter potholes, bumps and boulders but God has promised us that He will help us navigate the treacherous terrain. For your family, the major concern is getting on with their lives without you. It’s not easy for them. Places, things, food and activities that you like would remind them of you. In the still of the night, when memories come flooding back, the pain is all the more acute. I can say with certainty that all these will come to pass one day, though when that will be, I have no idea. There’s no time-table for grief. Some people come out of it sooner, some take a longer time. Whatever it is, your family isn’t alone. They have each other, they have us. Crying, talking, remembering can be therapeutic, these we do to help the grieving process.

Though you are gone, you’ll always have a place in our hearts. Till we meet on the heavenly shores.


Aunty CF
