Paying Tribute To David Loo

by Patrick Liew on October 8, 2011

I want to pay tribute to David Loo, a man to whom I owe a lifetime of gratitude

If it was not for him and his invaluable influence on my life, I may not be who I am today. My life might have literally gone down the drain a long time ago.

I first met him when I was 15 years old. He was a special mentor that was sent to me by our Creator.

God knew that I needed coaching and guidance to go through an identity crisis and a difficult period in my life.

David was there at the right time. He walked with me through a long dark tunnel until I saw the light.

David has a heart of gold. He hailed from Penang, Malaysia, and was studying at a seminary in Singapore.

He was and still is a good looking gentleman. Besides having a charming personality, he writes and speaks well, and has a great sense of humour.

He also plays the guitar and sings beautifully. He can very well be a professional musician if not for fulfilling his noble calling.

He has devoted his entire life to helping people. Till this day, he is still travelling regularly to touch lives and help communities.

Truly an amazing man.

In 1972, David would meet a group of us almost, every Wednesday afternoon for next two years. We would gather at the garage of a colonial bungalow opposite my school.

David was obviously somebody we admired and looked up to during those formative years.

Week after week, he would teach us about our Creator and help us establish a lifelong relationship with Him.

He taught us from the Bible and covered many vital aspects of our life. He gave clear illustrations on how we should apply absolute principles to live a successful life – lessons that have stood by me until today.

I am eternally grateful to David, my spiritual father for his contribution to my life. Looking back, it was no coincidence that he appeared at a critical stage of my life.

Our Creator has sent him as an angel, one of many who helped me through different stages of my life.

If not for them, I could have lived a wasted life.

People like them inspire me to inspire others to live a better life and make our world a better home.


I hope this message will find a place in your heart.

By the way, I have also recorded other reflections.

Question: How can we acknowledge the people who have greatly influenced our lives?
