CMDF Annual Fellowship Meeting

by Dr. Tan Kay Soon
Date: 4-Jun-09 Thursday


As with most AGMs, CMDF’s had the usual reports and announcement of new leaders. But the evening session held at Wesley Methodist Church on June 4 had something more – an inspiring message by guest speaker, Dr. Chris Gnanakan and a short but heartfelt sharing session by medical student Ms. Ann Toh.

The meeting kicked off with worship songs enthusiastically led by Dr. Michael Kim on the guitar and Dr. Darryl Chew on the piano. Dr. Goh Wei Leong briefed the audience on some of the local activities in the past year and Mr. Jonathan Tan, a second-year medical student shared about his volunteer experience at HealthServe. Ms. Ann Toh also related her personal experience on her M4 elective posting to Yunnan, China and even had a teenage guest from Yunnan who moved the audience with her testimony. She shared about how she had acid thrown on her face when she was a young girl, but through the support of missionary doctors who did her surgery for free and coming to know the Lord, she found the courage to face the world again.

Dr. David Cheong, the outgoing longstanding treasurer, presented the accounts and budget, and encouraged us to play our part in supporting CMDF financially.

Our Chaplain Rev. (Dr.) Tan Soo Inn then elucidated the concept behind our new Mission Statement: That CMDF is an evangelical fellowship of dentists and doctors committed to mobilise, equip and guide the dental and medical community to be servants of God’s Kingdom for the glory of God.

We also went home encouraged and spurred on by what Dr. Chris Gnanakan expounded, and that is “what we become through what we do is more important than what we do”. To listen, believe, love, serve, hope – that, in essence, is the beautiful simplicity of what we are called to do.
