About Us

My photo
Two souls who by the grace of God found each other. As we love each other, we remember that it is God's love that made this all possible. As we strive to build a strong relationship, we remember that it is actually our r'ship with CHRIST that binds us together. So as we will begin our life together, it is our desire to share God's love to this world and be CHRIST's humble servant wherever He may call us! Now with the arrival of Breanne Chan, we pray that we will be able to bring her up according to God's Commands and Love!

Amway vs God's Way

NETWORK 21 Conference at PGRM

Last weekend was an extremely long and eventful weekend. It started on Friday and Saturday night at a Network 21 (Amway) conference followed by my (Faith Christian Center) Church camp (in MBS, Rawang), which ended on Wednesday (18 May). Wow! It was definitely an extraordinary weekend as both events challenge me to commit my time and money to improve the quality of life for myself, my family and those around me! So which way is better? Amway or God’s way? I have limited time and money. So which takes priority?

First let’s examine what I have learned from the Network 21 conference! It was indeed a very interesting conference and its guest speaker was Dr Porntip from Thailand. (No! Not the same one that testified in the Teoh Beng Hock case.)

The speaker talk about having passive income and using Amway to gain financial freedom so that we and those we love can be free of the “rat race” and to be free from being a slave to our jobs!

The intention is indeed noble! Financial freedom will enable you to spend more time with your family and to help other people. She stress that this is especially important because we don’t know when we will die or when our love ones will pass away.
If I didn’t know better I thought I was in some Christian Conference! The values, theme and strategy they used are almost exactly identical with the Christian mentality.

Here are some other examples:

1. Network 21 (NW21) talks about sharing 1 (Amway) plan a day to one person.

(Wow! Can I even share the Good News to one person a day? This is better than XEE and Alpha Course put together!)

2. NW21 tells its members to share this wonderful system (which they have discovered) to their love ones so that they can help their love ones too!

(That sounds like U must share Jesus to those you love so that they can go to Heaven)

3. NW21 talks about changing your mindset and the need for your brain to unlearn and relearn things.

(The Bible in Romans talks about renewing your mind too!!)

Perhaps the most telling similarities was the quote I got from the NW21 speaker. She said that “The secret of happiness is freedom. The secret of freedom is the courage to change.”

When I got to my family camp I realize that my Camp Theme was “FREE!” (Freedom). Wow what a coincidence! Not only was the theme similar, but both the Church Camp and Network 21 speakers had a lot of similarities in their talks!!!

Now my camp speaker is a real special person from Vietnam! His name is Dr. Paul Ai. He was a former Buddhist monk turn witch doctor, turn Missionary! He has tattoo all over his body because he had attain the highest rank for witch doctor in Vietnam! He has got to be one of the most interesting person I have ever met! His faith in God is incredible and he comes across as a very humble person!(Check out his book! Incredible stories of faith!)

Paul I talk about financial freedom as well but the difference is the system. Network 21 is base on work. I.e. being discipline, setting goals, strategy and targets. However Paul I talks about faith in God and challenge us to ask about our “treasure’ (there our heart will be also).

The NW21 speaker showed us countless slides of her many travels around the world on holidays and Amway conference (and tells us how success in Amway can leads to these rewards). In camp Paul I too showed us many pictures of his travels around the world. Only that his travels were for mission work and Christian conferences and not for holiday! But both said that what they do does not feel like work to them! So what is my decision!?! I believe this is not a coincidence that I went for both events on the same week. I believe that God is showing me something! What is He showing me?!? I am not sure! However my decision for now is that it doesn't have to be either God's way or Amway. You can do both! In fact I hope this Amway may open doors to share the Gospel with other people! Already I have shared with my upline in Network21.

So I have join Amway/Network 21 because they do have very good products which I have been using since I was young and their system is a good one.

But this will not be my priority!

If God used NW21 to bless me and my family, then so be it! But my trust is in God (to provide all my needs). My investment in time and money goes to God first. Ever since I made the step of faith to come to KL to take the job in Methodist College Kuala Lumpur , He has provided all my needs and more! I can testify to His faithfulness, His generosity and His blessings!!!

I know if I seek first the kingdom of God and all His righteousness, all these things will be added to me. For my God will provide for all my needs according to His riches and glory! My heart only needs to belong to Him!

Thus I will commit my NW21 business to God and not worry about it!
And speaking of His goodness I have a testimony to share! On that Sunday I was suppose to leave for camp, I skip church to play futsal! (Yes I know! I can hear the gasp!! Oh the sinner that I am!)

Well serve me right! I got a very back knock on my big left toe. This is the toe that I broke before and have goult! Well it was bruisng very badly and went to camp all bandage and limping. But the next night during Dr Paul Ai talk, I went up for prayer and asked God for healing. Went I got back to my sit I decided to take a look at my toe. I was amaze! The brusing was nearly gone! Brusing like this usually takes a couple of weeks to heal! But this took less than 48hours! I showed my wife to see if I was imagining it and she was amazed too! This is the first time I have experience immidiate healing like this. Praise God! All honour and glory belong to Him who sits upon the throne!

I must thank Dr Paul Ai for teaching me how to pray with authority and believe! According to him, just read the Bible and shake your head and say Yes! God! Hahahahaha!!
