I got to know the late Pastor Ng Tong San about a decade ago. He shared that he was called to share the gospel to the migrant Chinese working here. He would assist interested local churches to start weekend worship services for these migrant Chinese workers and in 2010, I was invited to serve and was roster-ed as worship leader and preacher in one or two such weekend worship services.
In 2011, he asked me to join him to minister to many elderly folk staying in a certain neighbourhood in Shenyang, China. Some of the elderly folk were the parents of migrant workers here. Commuting to the local church was difficult for these folk due to several reasons so he sponsored the rental of a shop unit for regular worship and fellowship.
His love for the Lord was evidenced by his zealous obedience in saving souls. Despite having not much in material possession and in less-than-desirable health, he was so generous in giving both time and resources for the Kingdom sake.
He had finished his race well at 63. I am sure our Lord would welcome him and said, “Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.”
A life well lived for the Lord without any regret. A glowing encouragement to me to do likewise to the very end.
