Today, my heart bleeds and is so sad as I have just learnt of the passing of one of 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 a very young child (about three years old) and a beautiful wife, 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 nicknamed me ‘Master Steve’. However, I am the one who has 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 of 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 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 loss. 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!

    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.
