Protected During Overseas Work Trip

 

On 21 June 2016, I went on a work trip to Brussels, Belgium. On the first day of our meeting, our colleagues from Brussels came to pick us up from the hotel to the office in two cars.

In the 30–minute ride to the office, the first car got into a car accident. And I was seated in the second car.

It was a shock when we arrived at the accident scene a few minutes later. My Brazilian colleague was covered with blood. Thank God he was not critically injured. He required stitches on his head and suffered from a broken finger, injured ribs and leg.

I thank Abba Father for His protection over my boss and myself who were in the car behind. Though the meeting started on an unpleasant note, I kept declaring Abba Father’s protection over the team.

Throughout the week, my colleagues told us that some places in Brussels had to be closed due to suspected terrorist activities and extensive hype caused by the Euro Cup. I thank Abba that we were not near those affected areas.

On the day of the last meeting, though there was a strike, we were able to have our meeting safely in the office.

Despite all these incidents, I was at peace and I kept declaring the blood of Jesus upon my colleagues. The entire week also turned out to be a restful week and the meetings were also very fruitful.

On Saturday, 25 June 2016, my boss and I were scheduled to return to Singapore. We were supposed to transit at Frankfurt. However, due to bad weather, our flight was cancelled.

As a result, we had to transit at Istanbul. When my boss heard about the news, he asked me if I was fine with the arrangement. After praying and committing the trip to Abba, I told him that we were protected and I was fine with the arrangement.

Before the flight, I also requested for prayers from fellow believers. Our flight was very restful with superb service, and we were back in Singapore on 26 June 2016.

On 29 June 2016, I was shocked to receive news that some bombs had gone off at Istanbul airport early in the morning. I calculated the timing and realised that it was the same time we were transiting at Istanbul airport three days ago! One of the bombs even went off near our boarding gate. I had goosebumps reading the news.

Many of my colleagues told my boss and me that we were “lucky”. But I know that we were protected not because of “luck” but because of Jesus. A few months prior to the trip, I would declare every day that God would put me at the right place at the right time, and He had indeed placed me at the right place at the right time. He also surrounded me with believers who covered me with prayers throughout the trip. All glory to our loving Abba!

Open Doors And Favour Despite Lack Of Experience

 

When I first started as a special needs teacher in 2013, I had no experience working with children with special needs. All I had was a desire to work with children and two completely irrelevant degrees. This troubled me greatly as I knew nothing about teaching the children.

Before I got the job, I remember sharing my concern with the panel of interviewers and asked if there were any courses in Singapore which I could go for.

I was told that there was a course that was recognised by the school and it was an Advanced Diploma In Early Childhood Intervention (Special Needs). However, they also shared that only teachers who have at least two or three years of experience would be sent for this course. Hence, I would be given on–the–job and in–house trainings for the time being.

When I came out of the interview, I told God, “God, I know nothing! If You give me this job, You’ve got to be with me! You will have to personally teach me how to teach the children, and give me all the skills, wisdom and knowledge that I need. I can only depend on You!”

And that was the way it went. I kept praying the same prayer every day as I had to depend on Him daily. I had no experience but I have God with me. And He gave me favour with the parents who were in class daily with their children. They loved me, trusted me and taught me many things in my first year. God also granted me so much wisdom such that my trainers could not believe that I was a new teacher.

Before the June holidays in 2013, I decided to ask the manager of the Early Intervention Programme for Infants & Children (EIPIC) about the advanced diploma programme again. However, her reply was the same as my interviewers. They would only send teachers who had at least two to three years of experience.

When I went out of the room, I said a simple prayer telling God that since He placed me in this job, I was going to trust Him to open the doors for me.

I forgot about this prayer until I was called into her office in August that same year. She told me that she was going to send me for the course!

Everyone around me told me how “lucky” I was to be sent for the course in my first year of work, and how this had never happened before.

When everyone stood up to introduce themselves on the first day of the course, I was the only person in the class with only half a year’s experience in the job while the rest had been teaching for at least two years!

God opened doors for me which no one else had gone before! Amazingly, the theme of the year in 2013 was “The Key of David” — the year of opened doors. After this, more good news followed.

Over the course of two years, there were so many times I felt overwhelmed by the assignments and work. I would ask God for wisdom and declare favour with the examiners who were going to read and grade my work. I kept confessing that I am the head and not the tail, above and not beneath, even though I had the least experience in the class.

In May 2016, I graduated and praise God, I received the “Most Outstanding Academic Performance Award” from the National Council of Social Service!

God has taken someone like me who was the least, to be the head and not the tail. He helped me produce quality essays that I could not even recognise my own work sometimes.

It was a surreal moment when I walked on the stage to receive the award — not because of the applause I was getting, but because I knew with all my heart and soul that it could only be God.

God’s grace did not stop there. Recently, I was offered a promotion to become a Senior Teacher. Again, I was undeserving of this promotion as it was typically offered to those who had at least five years of experience but I was only three–and–a–half years into my job. When asked, my bosses told me that I carried a “certain kind of presence”. Though they did not know what this “presence” was, I knew it was the presence of God with me. It is certainly God who has accelerated my career. Praise Jesus!

Protected From Two Car Accidents After Listening To Message On Psalm 91

 

One night, my husband, KC and I were stuck in a traffic jam for five hours. We couldn't move the car and did not know what had happened. So we put on a sermon by Pastor Joseph Prince titled, The Secret Place — Where You Find Protection And Long Life.

Later, we found out that a fatal accident took place just five seconds ahead of us. So the Lord held us up to protect us from the accident. We are so fully blessed and deeply loved by the Lord!

Today, my husband, KC, was again protected miraculously from another car accident. It appeared that a driver had a heart attack while driving and passed out. It led to a chain collusion and all the cars in front and behind KC got hit and the drivers were taken to the hospital. Despite all these, KC’s car was completely untouched!

Though KC had always been an excellent driver, he dared not claim the credit. Everything had happened so quickly that he could not react in time!

In fact, we believe that it was the Lord who protected him once again because this very morning, KC was reading a devotional by Pastor Prince that drew Bible references from Psalm 91!

It touched on verses 2 and 4 which read: He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty… and He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge…

Truly, as mentioned by Pastor Prince, there is no safer place in the universe than under the protective shelter of our Saviour’s wings. What blessed assurance we can have today, knowing that even if destruction rages around us, there is always a refuge and comfort in the Lord — our unfailing peace, protection and supply!
