CHC TELLS MEMBERS TO CEASELESSLY PRAY FOR KONG HEE'S SAFETY & PROTECTION

City Harvest Church has released a statement telling members to ceaselessly pray for the safety and protection of their leaders. The church's executive pastors, Aries Zulkarnain and Bobby Chaw, also reminded them to continue serving God while remaining faithful in the things they are called to do.

"Today, Pastor Kong, Pastor Tan, Sharon, Serina and John will start serving their sentences (Friday, April 21, 2017).

We will not see them for a season, but we must continue to uphold them in prayer. We pray for their safety and protection, and we pray that the presence of God is with them at all times.

Let’s also pray ceaselessly for their families, that through this period, God’s peace will fill them and His protection and grace will be upon them.

Church, in this time, let’s not forget Romans 12:12, which tells us to rejoice in hope, [be] patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer.

Let us continue to love God wholeheartedly and love people fervently. Being faithful in the things we are called to do: come to service, attend cell group, serve in the House of God, reach out to the lost, pray and fellowship together.

See you in church this weekend."

ALMIGHTY PASTOR KONG HEE TO SERVE JAIL TERM FROM TODAY

City Harvest Church's pastor Kong Hee surrendered at the State Courts and will start serving his jail term today. His sentence was significantly reduced from the original 8 years to 3 and a half years.

All the other church leaders, except Chew Eng Han, will also serve their sentences today. Their jail terms (after huge discounts) range from 7 months to slightly more than 3 years. They were convicted of misappropriating $50million in church funds, the largest amount misappropriated in Singapore.

The trial is also one of the longest-running criminal cases here and they are finally going to prison. As for Chew Eng Han, he will be bringing the case to the apex court and given time to prepare his own defence.

RECKLESS DRIVERS SHOULD BE FACING JAIL, NOT FINES

Interesting news about prosecutors urging the High Court to lay down guidelines to be more strict in cases where serious damage or injuries occur as a result of dangerous driving. The prosecution are asking for jail terms to be meted out to those reckless drivers who cause serious accidents.

I feel this is about time something like this is addressed by the courts. There are now more and more reckless drivers. There may be cases where their impatience caused them to drive recklessly, and thus endangering the lives of others on the roads. It is these reckless drivers that should be punished more severely for their dangerous driving.
