The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. Psalm 23:1
耶和华是我的牧者,我必不至缺乏. 诗篇 23:1 Slide 2: Madam Chanborn AD 1916, returned to be with Christ Jesus her Lord on 6 Feb 2009, ADat the age of 93 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise. Luke 23:43
耶稣对他说，我实在告诉你，今日你要同 我在乐园里了。路加福音 23:43 Slide 3: Uncle Toby’s mother-in-law, Madam Chan, was born in China. She married and lived with her husband in Malaysia for many years.
When her husband passed away, about 13 years ago (1996), she came to Singapore to stay with Uncle Toby and family. They took care of her sacrificially.
By God’s mercies and providence, about 10 years ago, she heard the Gospel and trusted in the Lord Jesus Christ as her personal Saviour and Lord. The Lord Jesus Christ became very precious to her soul each day. Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee. Psalm 73:25
除你以外 ，在天上我有谁呢。除你以外，在地上我也没有所 爱慕的。 诗篇 73:25 Slide 4: God in His great mercies, preserved her in the faith through the years.
On 7 December 2008, she was baptised in Uncle Toby’s home and became a member of Pilgrim Covenant Church (PCC), Singapore.
She said that was the happiest day of her life!
She was very happy that many brethren went to welcome her to be a member of the church. My days are like a shadow that declineth; and I am withered like grass. But thou, O LORD, shalt endure for ever; and thy remembrance unto all generations. Psalm 102:11-12
我的年日，如日偏斜。我也如草枯干。惟你耶和华必存到永远。你可记念的名，也存到万代。 诗篇102:11-12 Slide 5: She expressed great joy to be a part of the Church of Christ.
Every morning she prayed for Uncle Toby’s family, and her brothers and sisters in Christ in PCC, many of whom she has not met. She committed all to God, trusting that He will take care of them.
I think it meant a lot to her to be a member of our church, to be a part of the family of God, and she sincerely appreciated and cherished our church.
God in His faithfulness enabled some of our brethren to visit and minister to her in many wonderful ways, bringing her great joy and consolations. For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him. As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us. Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him. Psalm 103:11-13
天离地何等的高，他的慈爱向敬畏他的人，也是何等的大。 东离西有多远，他叫我们的过犯，离我们也有多远。父亲怎样怜恤他的儿女，耶和华也怎样怜恤敬畏他的人。诗篇 103:11-13 Slide 6: She was wheelchair bound for 26 years. Towards the last days of her life, her health weakened and she was constantly in pain. God gave her reliefs every now and then through pain killers.
Despite whatever pain or sufferings, she was grateful to God and found peace in Him. My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever. Psalm 73:26
For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ. 2 Corinthians 1:5
我的肉体，和我的心肠衰残。但神是我心里的力量， 又是我的福分，直到永远。诗篇 73:26
我们既多受基督的苦楚，就靠基督多得安慰。哥林多后书 1:5 Her prayers and thanksgiving every morning was “Thank you, Heavenly Father, and Lord Jesus Christ, for giving your precious blood to cleanse me of my sins. I am a sinner.” Slide 7: John 1125 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?
27 She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.
约翰福音 1125 耶稣对他说，复活在我，生命也在我 。 信我的人，虽然死了，也必复活 。26凡活 着信我的人，必永远不死。你信这话吗。 27马大说，主啊 ，是的，我信你是基督， 是神的儿子，就是那要临到世界的。 She trusted in the Lord Jesus Christ as her Saviour and Lord wholeheartedly, and have the comfort and assurance of being with Him one day in glory. Slide 8: On 6 February 2009, she was called home to be with her Lord Jesus Christ, Who loved her and gave His life for her.
She is now at a far better place where there is no more pain, suffering or tears.
She is in Heaven, in the presence of God and her beloved Lord Jesus Christ, to worship God and enjoy His love and fellowship for all eternity. For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God: Job 19:25-26
我知道我的救赎主活着，末了必站立在地上。我这皮肉灭绝 之后，我必在肉体之外得见神。约伯记 19:25-26 Slide 9: Like Madam Chan, it is the blessed hope of all who truly trusted in Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour and Lord that their sins are forgiven through the blood of Jesus Christ shed on the cross for them, and they have eternal life in Christ when they leave this world. Death is a door to glory.
Have you trusted in Jesus as your personal Saviour and Lord? Do you have the assurance of sins forgiven and eternal life in Jesus Christ? If you do not, don’t delay. Today is the day of salvation! Call upon the Lord Jesus Christ and He will save you. Psalm 116
15 Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints.
16 O LORD, truly I am thy servant; I am thy servant, and the son of thine handmaid: thou hast loosed my bonds.
17 I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of the LORD.
诗篇 116 15 在耶和华眼中，看圣民之死，极为宝贵。16 耶和华啊，我真是你的仆人。我是你的仆人，是你婢女的儿子。你已经解开我的绑索。 17 我要以感谢为祭献给你，又要求告耶和华的名。 Slide 11: Produced byNancie, her sister-in-Christ at Pilgrim Covenant Churchhttp://www.pilgrimcovenant.com/
