I had the privilege of visiting Anne Frank's hiding place during against the persecution of the Nazi during World War 2. I read her diary in school so I was glad to be able to visit her house in Amsterdam, The Netherlands (View Video).

Below are photos of me standing outside Anne Frank's House and Museum.

I took a photo of Anne Frank's statue in Amsterdam.

You can read about Anne Frank history from Wikipedia.

Anne Frank History

Marie "Anne" Frank (listen (help·info)) (June 12, 1929 – early March 1945) was a Jewish girl who wrote a diary while in hiding with her family and four friends in Amsterdam during the German occupation of the Netherlands in World War II.

Born in Frankfurt, Germany, Frank and her family moved to Amsterdam in 1933, after the Nazis gained power in Germany, and were trapped by the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands. As persecutions against the Jewish population increased, the family went into hiding in July 1942 in hidden rooms in her father Otto Frank's office building. After two years in hiding the group was betrayed and transported to concentration camps. Seven months after her arrest, Frank died of typhus in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp within days of her sister, Margot Frank. Her father, Otto, the only survivor of the group, returned to Amsterdam after the war ended, to find that her diary had been saved. In 1947 he had it published in Dutch under the title Het Achterhuis: Dagboekbrieven van 12 Juni 1942 – 1 Augustus 1944 (The Backhouse: Diary notes from 12 June 19421 August 1944). A collection of her other writings recovered from the hiding place, Tales from the Secret Annex was published in 1949.

The diary, which was given to Frank on her thirteenth birthday, chronicles her life from June 12, 1942 until August 1, 1944. It was published as The Diary of a Young Girl and eventually translated from its original Dutch into many languages and became one of the world's most widely read books. There have also been several films, television, theatrical productions, and even an opera based on the diary. Described as the work of a mature and insightful mind, it provides an intimate examination of daily life under Nazi occupation and in hiding; through her writing, Frank has become one of the most renowned and discussed of Holocaust victims.


Hope Utrecht was the first in Hope Europe churches to have a Healing Service during my 3 month mission trip. I rallied all my friends from Hope Brisbane and around the world to pray for our Healing Service.

Albert, Claire and Stefan from Hope Utrecht have been inviting people from the community for the meeting. We thank God for bringing new visitors to the Healing Service. God touched people's lives at the meeting and new visitors gave testimony of healings. We praise God for His power and love (Watch Video)

Below are some scenery of Utrecht Town Centre.


Amsterdam is indeed one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. It was an unforgettable experience walking the streets of Amsterdam and see all the historical buildings and landmarks.

There are many cannels in Amdsterdam since the city is build below sea level. Thousands of tourists around the world coming to Amsterdam everyday. There is a big sign "Jesus Loves You" outside the main train station. Jesus loves this city and I pray that one day we will pioneer a church in the city. Below are photos of me doing sightseeing in Amsterdam.

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16


Chen Chee and Joan Foo (both pharmacists) are leading the working adults group called New Generation in Hope Brisbane, Australia. I really love this couple because of their hearts to serve God and others. They have a vision to reach working professionals in the marketplace for Jesus Christ.

It is encouraging to see New Generation growing in quality and quantity over the years. Chen Chee is gifted in leadership and has tremedous interpersonal skills. Joan is gifted in worship and prophetic ministry. Together, they make a wonderful ministry team for the Lord.

I was invited to speak at a New Generation meeting called "Restore". To be honest, I was nervous at the meeting because it was a new experience for me. I believe we honour God when we step out of our comfort zones and do new things in His name. It was a good night and the Spirit of God was in our midst to minister to working adults.


I really enjoy serving God because God always blesses me in so many ways. Have you experience blessings from God lately?

I just came back from ministry overseas and I got a surprise called from my brother, Albert. His family was at the Gold Coast for a holiday and he invited me to Sea World theme park. An offer too good to refuse! I had a fantastic time watching the Dolphin Show, Water-ski Show, 4 Dimensions theatre and all kinds of fishes at Sea World. We ended the day to an all-you can-eat restuarant!

God always surprises us with good things when we serve Him with all our heart and strength.

I will sing of the LORD's great love forever;
with my mouth I will make your faithfulness known through all generations. Psalm 89:1

I love Ablaze Youth Camp 2007! I thank Torchie and Ablaze Ministries International for organising such an awesome Camp. Torchie and Ps Shirley from Hope Singapore gave very inspiring messages which were so convicting. Many young people were challenged to follow and serve God. I was glad to join in the fun at Ablaze camp.
