In Everything Give Thanks
18give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
1 Thessolonians 5:18
I came across an article in our national newspaper, The Star today about Tan Sri Francis Yeoh winning the Oslo Business for Peace award 2010 together with six other outstanding individual around the world.
Francis is the MD of YTL Corporation a conglomerate involved in infrastures, communication,and others around the world.
When contacted he said "I thank the Lord for this and give Him all the honour and credit..". It is such an encouragement to others. Francis usually uphold the name of the Lord and glorify Him in all situation, and he is not afraid to thank God even when interviewed on national TV in Malaysia. ( Majority of Malaysians are Muslim). He is also an encouragement to many Christian businessmen to be forthcoming and to be righteous in their business dealings.
If I am not mistaken, Francis's younger brother and sister in law are instrumental in setting up of Alpha Malaysia National office in Kuala Lumpur. Alpha is impacting many lives in Malaysia now. Last April, the pioneer of Alpha Nicky Gumbel and his team from London came to Kuching to conduct an international Alpha conference attended by about 1300 people.
Praise God for the many Christians who are willing to sacrifice for Jesus!
Watch this video starting 2:50 he talks about his Christian faith.
