Once upon a time in Singapore
……Mr Chong was taking a rest ……he lived in Bishan near Lynette…..

One day while sleeping, mr chong received a letter from his relative in China

The letter from his relative said..
..there was a famine.. &a drought

WHAT DID MR CHONG DO?

1. He could reply the letter……

But his relatives can’t eat letters

2. He could send them food

And that would show love and compassion.. But what would happen when the food runs out?

OR HE COULD..

3. Took leave, …and went to China Bringing doctors, engineers and social workers

To help build a long term sustainable water solution

indeed a true expression of love

This is what Jesus did for us

Why did Jesus die on the cross?
• He died because evil men killed Him • He died because he was truly human like us • He died to set us free from sin

Free us from sin?
• Healing from disease (1 Peter 2:24)
He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed.
