Last week I got a call from Penang. On the phone is Missioner Koay Gaik Kee now at age 82
Seated 4th from left is Penang Missioner Koay Gaik Kee. 1st from right is Missioner Ng (KL JSM)
I remembered her story which she also remembered fondly and said, “If not for God’s timely warning I would have “died” and gone to heaven then
What is that story of long ago one night in Penang?
Here it is:
Every Wednesday evening Missioner Koay would leave from Nordin Street Ghaut Flats & drive to Tanjung Bungah JSM for Prayer Meeting without fail (about just less than One hour drive away)
On that fateful night as she was about to drive the Church vehicle she saw a Big Nail Puncturing the car tire! So she phoned the brethren of Tanjong Bungah that the Prayer Meeting was cancelled for that night.
And this was what happened.
About the time of the Prayer Meeting (but now empty as she forewarned all cancelled as she could not go that night) 3 Huge Rubber Trees Fell
They felled right across the section of the building where the Place for Prayer should be held as usual
THIS IS INDEED A MIGHTY DIVINE INTERVENTION & DELIVERANCE
If not as she said she would have gone to heaven straightaway
PRAISE & THANK OUR ALMIGHTY GOD
Our God is a very present help in trouble
See more carefully the photo below (On the right most part are rubber tree trunks branching out) These collapsed & fell on the evening when God Almighty forewarned Missioner Koay to cancel the Prayer Meeting and as a result not one person was hurt)
Below is the latest photo Ms Koay at age 82. She graduated long ago from Singapore Bible College before joining JSM
Missioner Koay holding up the Victory Sign!
Right is bro Jacob Ooi (Ms Koay convert more than 50 years ago) Bro Jacob caught that early vision….ministering to the poor & outcast of Penang just as Ms Koay imparted to him almost half a century ago
ALL PRAISE TO OUR MOST KIND & LOVING LORD JESUS
Amen & Amen!
There is another very interesting Story about that Tanjung Bungah JSM
Tanjung Bungah JSM was a 3 room wooden Villa rented for only Rm55
Yes it was only rented for Fifty five ringgit (Rm55)
And there is an interesting story told by Missioner Koay about that Tanjong Bungah JSM
Will share again in later post some future day God willing
Meanwhile please do pray for us. We covet earnest prayer for telling God’s great goodness as we give glory to our dear good LORD
