Ordination Snapshots

Getting ready …. I’m the huge guy in white with my back facing you! James did a black & white version of this which is nice

An overview shot!

It’s great to have a chance to be Bishop’s interpreter for this occassion.

Bishop asking us very important questions, we answer “Yes, I will … By the help of God!”

When the chaplain for the convention Rev. Tan prayed for us, Gareth was busy trying to grab the cross around my neck, May Chin holding him tight .. I was having a great time enjoying the playfulness of our little boy just being himself in front of God and his people!

Bishop Gideon Chang saying a few things to us ..

James tells me I still look slim in this picture … what a comfort 🙂

Singing and smiling with Mrs. Chang

    It was so encouraging for us to see you at this ordination. This is a promotion of servanthood and a step towards intimacy with the Lord. We are so proud of you, Sivin.
    We hope you can still go for movies and mamak … now that you are a reverend. Can we make a request? Wear your ‘Matrix White Coat’ to the mamak with us???

  6. Greetings Jedi Master Sivin!

    It’s an honour to be able to be of service to you in this significant occasion. Glad to have been there!

    (I am a photographer for hire. Willing to photograph anyone and any occasion. Willing to travel – overseas too! I accomodate various budgets.) :o)

    Sorry… some shameless self-advertising!

    Congratulations! (what else does one say when someone gets ordained? “Many happy returns”? I dunno!) But bless you and your family heaps, and we look forward to seeing you when you become a missionary pastor and come to the States! hehehe!

    Well, one can hope, can’t one?

    Blessings again,
    Tom and Tan

    The photos are indeed amazing and it was incredibly nice being a part of your most special day. Whilst it seemed a bit stiff and formal at the time (BLC style is SO cool!), it is wonderful to reflect on such occasion. The memory will stay with us forever. Thanks be to God!

    What more can one want in life, really?!
    May we be thankful for such rich blessings-
