In the span of one year, High Priest Church, the host of the seminar, has also seen the fruits of grace in its ministry. Inspired by the grace teachings Pastor Mark imparted at the seminar in 2014, the children’s ministry pastor of the church developed and launched a grace-based curriculum for the kids.
Nine-year-old Kenneth Voon is a testament to the success of this grace-based programme in High Priest Church. Born with a cleft lip (a congenital split in the upper lip), Kenneth had speech problems and difficulties socialising with other children when he first came to church about a year ago.
Ever since his immersion in the new curriculum, Kenneth has improved by leaps and bounds. Today, he not only speaks confidently, he has also made marked improvements in his studies, coming in first in his cohort when he used to be the last. Kenneth also delights in God’s Word and enjoys memorising Bible verses. Because of Kenneth’s transformation, his 28-year-old mum is also learning about the Bible through him!
On 19 July 2015, Pastor Mark also ministered and preached to a congregation of 300 at a Sunday service in High Priest Church, leading four new believers to Christ.
Praise the Lord for all the precious lives that have been transformed by His grace!
