[vc_row equal_height=”yes”][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]Today, my heart bleeds and is so sad as I have just learnt of the passing of one my ‘Chinese boys.’ A few years ago, I produced an album for his ministry. He was one of my dear ‘Chinese sons’. Such incredible prominence, anointing, calling & purpose. My dear son leaves behind two children (daughter two years old and son, eight months old) and a beautiful wife, Victoria whom he loved very much.

 

While working on the albums, we spent much time in the recording studio, their home, and other venues. Out of respect, he and the other members of the team nick-named me ‘Master Steve’. However, I am the one who have held the highest respect for what my friend accomplished throughout his short life span and for a simple life lived with such humility. I can still hear his soft-spoken voice (whether singing or speaking) and see his gentle fingers stroking the keyboard. R.I.P son.
My heart is indeed sad yet thankful how God allowed our paths to cross. Oh, what a reminder how fragile life is!
Today I am also reminded how precious life & time is. A life lived without purpose is a life not lived at all. This particular season, we are reminded of Jesus’ life poured out for us – and a gruesome death – a love sacrifice paid – way beyond our comprehension and natural understanding.
I know it will be a while before I can even play the album recorded with my ‘son’ in the heart of beautiful China. Please join me and pray for his family as they grapple with this sad lost. His eyes would fill with tears as we sat listening back to the string orchestra playing over his beautifully composed songs. Now you have a specially prepared place enjoying God’s ‘symphony orchestra’.
If we are honest, it’s so much harder to accept the loss of a young person over someone who may have ‘lived-out’ their three-score plus ten years and beyond. But, accepting God’s ways is a daily ‘outworking’ of faith and trust in a Sovereign God who has indeed demonstrated His love for the human race through allowing His one and only son to die for us. Thank you, Father!
However, today is indeed a very sad day for me![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”4740″ img_size=”medium” alignment=”center” onclick=”link_image”][vc_single_image image=”4733″ img_size=”medium” alignment=”center” onclick=”link_image”][vc_single_image image=”4732″ img_size=”medium” alignment=”center” onclick=”link_image”][/vc_column][/vc_row]

    親愛的弟兄 Sien~實在不敢相信 從我們的好友Steve口中得知你已安息主懷的消息~雖然百般不捨與難過 但我深信你在主那裡是好得無比! 而且繼續在天上敬拜祂~!
    猶記得幾年前 我們因錄製我心旋律專輯 和我心旋律一起合辦的敬拜特會 認識了你們這一群充滿熱情 單單愛主 順服主 又為主癲狂的音樂人~~
    尤其對你印象深刻 在這麼年輕就立志要被主用 盡心盡力盡意的敬拜我們的主 永遠不會忘記你在音樂上的天份和那份單純謙卑的態度 當時的你都還沒結婚呢 我們還嚷嚷要幫你介紹對象呢~感謝主 多年後 你已為人夫為人父了~而且也用音樂來傳揚神的福音~
    親愛的Sien 在這世界是短暫的 在主那裡是永恆的 你所留下來的精神和音樂也將會是永恆的 我會用禱告的手 一顆愛家人的心 為你的家庭 你們的音樂事工 繼續守望禱告⋯想念你⋯

    Still couldn’t believe your sudden departure. Your voice, your anointed worship, your pure heart to God kept coming up. Many late night worship at my home, with you playing our piano. it never sounded so nice! Those unforgettable 10 days spent at the recording studio with you and your team. We were together in Hong Kong, China, US and Israel. All those memories.

    I am sure I am not the only one asking why. Why would God bring you home so early? But we will never know until we see God face to face one day. And on that day, I will see you again my brother.

      Yep – I so remember some of those days. The laughter, challenges, anointing, beautiful songs and all the rest …. the journey.

    宣恩,
    聽到你已經回到父家的消息,心中真的很不捨!如此年輕的生命,如此愛神事奉神的生命,而且又是榮神重用的生命,怎會這般的短暫?
    還記得第一次看到你和牧恩,是在洛杉磯的愛修園校區。對你最深刻的印象就是溫柔謙卑,純真可愛,講話聲調總是輕聲細語,不急不徐。但是當你談論到上帝,或者是唱歌敬拜的時候,都可以感受到你心中愛主的那一份熱度,願意將生命全擺上的心志。
    真的很懷念和你還有牧恩以及整個在以色列團隊,在美國,或在香港,大家一起敬拜的日子。跟你們敬拜真的是一件很享受的事,滿有神的同在,満有神的榮光,沉浸在神的憐憫慈愛中。
    宣恩,終究要跟你說聲再見,直到我們在父的家中再次齊聲向主獻上敬拜。

    谢谢你,带领我这么多年在神荣耀同在的敬拜,用你自己的生命经历不断鼓励我,提醒我:为己无所求,为主求一切。你的声音、敬拜、教导、生命的见证会继续在我里面不断的驻留,成为我为主奔跑的鼓励。盼望将来在天上相遇的时刻,一同欢呼。
