“Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth…” (Ecclesiastes 12:1)

December 2016 Youth Camp Testimonies

We are very blessed this past December to have heard 6 messages on the topic of "Serving God". Thank God for the various preachers of our church, for Prs  Dennis Kabingue, Jeremiah Sim, Daniel Lim, Kelvin Lim and especially Pr Andrew Koh for imparting the Word unto us, that we may glean precious lessons from it. As Psalm 47 exhorts us—"Sing praises to God, sing praises: sing praises unto our King, sing praises. For God is the King of all the earth: sing ye praises with understanding."

May the testimonies in this article encourage your heart, and move you to hopefully join us for the next one! Click "Read More" to view their testimonies.


December 2015 Youth Camp Testimonies

Gethsemane B-P Churches of Singapore and the Philippines were guided by the grace of God to assemble their youths for a 5-day camp (21-25 Dec) in Cebu City, the Philippines. The main aim of this camp was to instruct and equip them to overcome the wicked devices of the world that war against their souls. The youths were taught from the Word of God by 8 preachers who came with prayerful preparation and a holy determination to persuade the youths with God’s Word to be overcomers of worldliness. With much biblical wisdom and discernment, the preachers unmasked the world’s satanic snares that are set against the Christian youths in the world around them. God’s servants pleaded with the hearts of our youths to be vigilant against temptations and bravely stand for Christ with clear understanding and firm conviction of the biblical truths.

There were also 3 youths from Pusan (Korea), brought by Pr Park (a graduate of FEBC), and 2 from Manila (the Philippines) who were relatives of our church members. With much thanksgiving for the ministry among the youths this past week, we publish some of their testimonies below the cut:

June 2013 Youth Camp Testimonies

During the June school holidays, a special programme for our youths was held by Gethsemane Youth Fellowship (GYF). About 45 youths participated in the youth camp. We appreciate the joyful rendering of service and support by the YF committee and members of the church that has made this event possible. May the LORD bless all our labour in bringing together youths in their respective programmes that many souls may be saved and edified.

Camp Theme Verse: "Therefore said He unto them, the harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that He would send forth labourers into His harvest." —Luke 10:2

June 2012 Youth Retreat Testimonies

It was my great pleasure to have an opportunity to interact with our youths and to teach them in the recent Youth Retreat (June 8-9). I thank the Lord for Ruth Low, Donald dela Cruz, Andrew and Lynn Koh, Sis Diana Chan and Sis Lee Kim Lei who have co-laboured with me in this retreat. About 30 youths participated in the retreat. How I wish that more youths had taken advantage of this opportunity to learn His Word and to draw close to God!

Every youth will have to make many choices concerning his studies, friends, activities, entertainment, etc. Youth are often under pressure from the world to conform to its ways which are displeasing to their Saviour and Lord, Jesus Christ. So every Christian youth needs to be discerning to make choices that will please Him. Only if they are skilful in applying the Word of God correctly in their making of choices, they can please Him. “For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil” (Hebrews 5:13-14).

So I would like to urge all the youths who worship the Lord in Gethsemane BPC to join the Youth Bible Hour on Sundays and other activities that you may be well equipped to discern that which will please the Lord. For the encouragement of every youth, I am publishing some of the testimonies of participants of the Youth Retreat.
