THE Council and Staff of NECF Malaysia join the family of the late Elder Timothy Phua in mourning and celebrating his return to the Lord on Jan 4.
We grieve that he is no longer with us and we will miss his fellowship, wise counsel and wry humour. Yet, we rejoice that his wish to be united with the Lord – a desire he has expressed since last year – is now fulfilled.
Timothy, an elder of The Word Centre, was a significant partner of NECF. He helped to arrange free-interest loans to purchase our present building, and contributed generously in cash and kind not only to NECF but also to many other ministries.
As NECF’s partner, he served faithfully as treasurer of a few major NECF events, including the 1999 Emmanuel Celebration and 2000 Breakthrough Conference & Rally. At the time of his departure, he was a board of the newly established NECF Foundation.
Timothy left behind his wife, Mary, and three daughters – Selina, Pr Elaine and Pr Tammie – and three grandchildren.
