Message by Mr Ng Eng Chin “Show 2”

Transcribed by: Mr Ivan Tan
Director of Sport/CCA & External
Edited by: Ms Annabella Ong
Secondary Head of Department
I’m so glad that we are able to
stage this musical. This musical
was made possible some 15 years
ago back in 2003 in ACS at ACS
Barker Road. This musical was
commissioned because at that point
in time, the school went through a
journey just like ours; a new school
was being established and over the
years we wanted to honour God
because of His faith in us and for
bringing us through that journey.
Today, ACS Jakarta has the honour
of staging this musical because we
too went through a Journey of Faith.
This is the second show. In the first
show, I had a special message for
the audience as well as the cast;
and for every show, I’ll share a new
message. In the first show, I helped
us to recall about the burning bush
because that is a very special
encounter. That is the encounter of
man with God, and in the show, it
was Moses with His God. It is true
for all of us that the Journey of Faith
begins with that encounter when we
are able to reach out and go
forward to our God. In the story of
the burning bush, Moses was far
away at the Mountain of God
