Bronwyn went to be with Jesus in glory at 4.45 pm on Sunday 31st March.
A note from Richard:
We shared some beautiful times together as a family in the last few days and nights – reading the bible, praying, singing, sharing memories. The doctors tell us that hearing is the last sense to remain, so it is likely that she heard everything. Although it was gut wrenching to see her body decay before our eyes, we are so thankful that her suffering is over. And far more importantly we are grateful that today is Easter Sunday – the day we remember that Jesus rose from the dead to rule with all authority and conqueor death – the last enemy! Through broken hearts we cry hallelujah! We will grieve for a while yet, but never ever as people without real hope. Thank you so much for loving us through your prayers.
All our love,
Richard, Rachel, Naomi, Grace, and Thomas

February 2013 Chin Family Update
Often when we see Christians who appear to be enormously blessed by God, our worldliness may be causing us to think they were “lucky” or extra special.
Usually these apparent “winners” have come through many circumstances of testing. Their current blessing has been forged as they have responded to God’s challenges, both positive and negative. Many of our life’s events become “defining moments” and the key is how we respond.
We must firstly understand that God is refining us. Through the messiness of life and our need to make difficult choices, He is developing our trust, obedience, faith and love. He is preparing us for eternity and using us to help prepare others right here and right now.
