Every Tuesday, Anthony Low, a member of the Nav-Community Ministry (NCM), and his kopi kakis* meet to share Quiet Time thoughts. Their love for God and music eventually saw this group of friends forming their very own jamming group, String Praise. For them, “String” in an acronym for “String Instrument . Transformation . Revitalise . Inspiration . New Strength . Good News”.
On 3 November, String Praise organised an evangelistic lunch event, where they sang and praised the Lord with their music (see Psalm 27:6). Anthony and Mok Chok Sun, a Nav Associate Staff with NCM, also testified of God’s grace in their lives. Titled “When Christ Met Cancer”, Mok’s uplifting sharing focused on the God who heals, as he recounted his two-time battle with cancer. NCM staff Jane Ng also provided tips on the physiology of graceful aging. Before the programme end, a presentation of the gospel message was made.
Thereafter, the 50 attendees were blessed by a buffet lunch which the venue host, YWCA, generously subsidised. We thank God for how receptive the attendees were, with many asking when the next such event will be held.
