"Life is an Adventure": The Ministry of G. T. Ng

For a long time, many of us have known G. T. Ng—executive secretary of the General Conference (GC) of Seventh-day Adventist—as just that. We know his face, we know his role, and we know the four letters that represent his name. But behind those three things is a man with a great sense of humor and a backlog of stories to tell of how God faithfully leads from one adventure to the next. Ng grew up in Singapore, where he occasionally attended church with his mother. When he was 18 years old, he felt an unmistakable call from God to enter into ministry. But his father had much higher aspirations for him and was disappointed at his decision to become a minister. Relatives rallied around to convince Ng he was making a foolish decision. Being the eldest in the family, they said to him, “Why in the world? You are the locomotive of a train. If the locomotive does not move, the train stops. You have to set the pace.”

what an amazing story behind an amazing man…i think more of our leader’s need Ng’s seemingly spontaneous sense of humour…there was a lot of insight and understanding of human nature behind his jokes…
