Nigel and Donavan Touched Many in Singapore

Recently two Christians brothers Nigel Yap 13, and Donavan Yap of Tampines Singapore were killed by a cement truck while they were riding their bicycles.  It was heart wrenching to read their story first on online news and later on Pastor Kenny Chee's blog ( above link ).  Such young lives taken away in just minutes by a careless driver.  Like Pastor Kenny said we do not know why such tragedy happened to innocent people, but we know we have a good God who sustain us in precisely times like these.  Roman 8:28 "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who[i] have been called according to his purpose". 

Please read the testimony of their mother in blogpastor,net at the above link.  The children's mother testimony is the evidence of a Good and Glorious God we have.  If not for our God, the children's parents will not have the strength to carry on their lives here.  Nigel was the one who brought her parents from the verge of a divorce and in the process he also helped reconcile his whole family.  This is a story of great love that only our Almighty God could produce in us.  He first love us and He enables us to love others in return.  Only our God can do such things.

Despite the tragedy, this sad story touched many people in Singapore and beyond. 

"Father God, we pray for the grieving parents of Nigel and Donavan, and Lord that they will be comforted by follow Christians in their church and community.  They have stood tall despite the tragedy because of your love.  Lord let them also show their love that you gave them to others they meet so that your Gospel may be proclaimed to those who do not yet believe in Jesus.  In Jesus Most Precious Name we pray Amen."
