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!

Breanne Chan Hui Li is our 2nd Anniversary Present from God!

I have been too preoccupied these past few months dues to various reason. None more so then the preparing for the arrival of my daughter!

Breanne Chan Hui Li! Born on 15th August 2011, 9.38am She weight in at 3.2kg. YES! Right smack on our 2nd Anniversary!! Exactly 2 years ago Joanne and I said "I do" to each other! NO! we did not plan it!
You can't plan for such things, can you?!?!
In the beginning we wanted to give her another name. Joanne and I were thinking of names that sound nice and etc. We actually settled on a name which Joanne really liked and would not change her mind.

But one day, as I was riding my bike to work, I felt the Holy Spirit speaking to me saying did I ask God to see if the name we had chosen was the name God would like. So feeling convicted, I decided to engaged my wife in another round of debate on our daughter's name (that very night).

To my surprise she said she felt the same and that we should start afresh on choosing our daughter's name. Joanne & I actually fasted and prayed for 1 week on getting a child and not long after the fasting and prayer, Joanne got pregnant.

So we decided to do the same thing and I fasted and prayed for one week to seek God's guidance on the name of our first child.

Right after the fast, I took my old name book and flip through the pages. I felt guided to choose a name that meant Strong Grace. At first I didn't think such name exist. Joanne and I have been looking through meaning of names and have not come across such a name.

However I did find that name in the book. The name is Breanne. Bre which is short for Bridget, which means strong, and Anne which means Grace!

We choose this name for her because it is really by the grace of God that we have this Child. From my past sins to where I am now, it is only by God's grace that has brought me here. Also we hope that this child will grow in the Grace of God and be a graceful lady as well.

Strong is because is was very strong in Joanne's tummy, kicking her all the time! Hahahaha!
We also hope that she will grow to be a strong in her faith and conviction in God and to be a blessing to everyone around her.

This is our prayer for her! May God grant us the grace, strength and wisdom to be good parents the this gift of love which God has give to Joanne and me!
We just want to thanks God for His blessings in giving Joanne a very fast and smooth delivery and both mom and daughter are in great health!

We also would like to thank all those who have been praying for us throughout the delivery!
Thank you for your support and love!
God Bless!!
