I was born in Penang, an island off Malaya.
I came to Australia to study in 69,
fell in love with the people and the country
first couple years in Australia was difficult, going to school and paying my own way because my parents were too poor.
but I believed this is the promised land, the Chinese called Australia the Golden Mountains
Then after the 2nd year of my undergraduate, I became ill, my latent illness was brought out because of the so called harmless stuff that everyone smoked.
The health system was very good in Australia, and so I was blessed to have been here when I fell ill. Otherwise in Penang, I would have been locked away for a long time. Recent news reports stated that Australia is the second best country to be born in.
Then I had an out of body experience one day, and I knew I had a Golden Spirit. I knew that I had to come back to my body, as I have still a lot of life left to live. It was then I knew that must be a God of our spirits.
Before I was admitted to hospital, one day a Pentecostal girl approach me on the streets in Richmond and asked ...What would you say to the Lord if you were to meet him today? I was taken back and could see Hell opening up. I decided to attend her church and gave up the life I was living.
years later my ma told me about the time when I was coming over, that she went to a Chinese temple and the monk told her not to do a thing more, because I was going to die and be reborn. That there is a greater power in Australia that would that care of me from then on. And I would find a new faith and be protected.
So I wanted to go to Heaven, and the thought came to me that Heaven was closed. And that Jesus himself would come down to visit us in our family circles. There would be lines of circles around the world where families are united. So I asked in prayer to find a wife.
I ended up in hospital after running amok in Melbourne.
At the hospital I was told to wait for my wife. There I met Dawn, I proposed the night we met. I knew the Lord had blessed us. The Lord had told me Dawn was coming from England that week.
So I was blessed to marry Dawn. A marriage blessing.
Then we were blessed to join the Church. … We were living in Richmond at the time, next to the TV station.
Dawn was being taught, I was as usual asleep after nightshift at the factory.
One day, we went to Church, for a lesson with the missionaries, and they asked me to pray …
As I got on my knees and started to pray, I heard a commotion outside the corridor and screams crying, “we have lost him, we have lost him!” And there was a gush or roar of wind up the corridor. When I finished praying, I opened the door as the Bishop was walking down. I asked him about the commotion, and he said everyone has gone home, please lock up the chapel when you are finished.
