DUMC STORIES: DARREN LIM 2

Posted on

It was always mind boggling before we finally arrived at the decision of serving in a formal ministry at church. I recall those days when my spouse and I were sorting through all the possible options at DUMC and putting them into a continuum of low to high time commitment e.g. Foodbank and First...

DUMC STORIES: MAY NG 2

Posted on

It all started with the unanswered phone calls. I was a new believer then. Somehow, I knew in my heart of hearts that to grow as a follower of Christ, it would be crucial for me to belong to a cell group (“CG”). I was really spiritually hungry then, and attending church on Sundays...

DUMC STORIES: ANTHEA TAN

Posted on

One night a few months ago, as I was moving about my house, all of a sudden I felt very tired and my body felt very weak. I felt so faint that I had to lie down. I even vomited a few times. I went to see a doctor, who directed me to go to a hospital. It was a long wait until I finally got my...

DUMC STORIES: FELICIA CHANG

I have been reflecting on the word "Missions." Here is my little story to share.  I was in Chiang Mai, Thailand in 2010 and stayed with a missionary couple there for 6 months . I stayed with them to help set up a halfway house for cancer patients and their family. Basically we worked to...

DUMC STORIES: RICHARD YEO

As part of our CG’s IMPACTNow initiative, in September 2020, we decided to adopt a Myanmarese refugee family from the Falam Chin tribe. We decided on this initiative as it makes it more meaningful for us to be able to sow into the marginalized on a continued basis as compared to just...

DUMC STORIES: LUKE TAN

I’m not sure if you have ever felt the paralysis that comes from having your control (or sense thereof) stripped away from you. Prior to this season of life that I find myself in, I have never had this experience before, nor did I anticipate one to be coming my way. 2 years ago, I had some...

DUMC STORIES: DEREK SUM

When DUMC launched IMPACT 2020, we had an idea of doing something as a cell group with the OA children. Then, Covid-19 happened and our plans were halted. Later, during the RMCO, my wife had a great idea to do something as a family and involve our two daughters (6 and 9 years old) during their...

DUMC STORIES: MAY NG

Posted on

Growing up, I have always questioned my existence. Who am I? Is there a meaning to life? What is my purpose here? While I believe that there is a god, I did not feel the need to have God personal in my life then; I believed and trusted in my own abilities for accomplishments, without knowing the...

DUMC STORIES: KENNY TAN

Posted on

We prayed for so many things for the last nine months on their behalf and never once did our God in heaven fail to answer. From their conception, to their delivery date, and even our desire for a natural delivery. Boy oh boy, that last part was scary. The first one we thought was going to be a...

DUMC STORIES: STEFFI ANN

You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds...
