by Paul Kee-Hua Hang Jr.




Interesting, Fascinating, Intriguing, Life-threatening, Life-changing Stories, Christian testimonies. The AUTHOR is one of the "Even Dozen" (six boys and six girls) children of the late Rev. & Mrs. Paul S. H. Hang, Sr. of Singapore. He has painstakingly put together this book of memories of the family's difficult and challenging childhood as they grew up during the great depression of the 1930s and World War II years. In non-fiction fashion, this book portrays the life of an Asian Chinese Singaporean and his family whose lives had been greatly impacted by the early Methodist Church in Singapore. They have been greatly blessed as several members have been educated in America and eventually settled down as American citizens. This book also tells of the many hardships and challenges of this Asian family as they grew up in a humble Methodist preacher's home. Theirs was a childhood filled with many uncertainties and endless struggles, often to survive the difficult times. It was their father's complete dedication to the ministry of God's Word, the Church, his family and his close association with the early American missionaries in China and Singapore that changed the course of their lives. Father Hang had left his homeland China in answer to God's calling and an urgent call from the early Hinghwa Methodist Church in Singapore. He devoted his life to serving God and His Church which in turn brought many blessings to the family. Readers will find the writer's stories of his experiences and impressions of the horrors and devastations of a major world war both intriguing and interesting. In all of his testimonies, the author attributes all of their blessings to their loving heavenly Father, thereby giving all the praise and glory to the Lord!

From the great Depression wracked 1930's to the new millennium, the life of a "PK" (preacher's kid) has never been an easy one. But add these complications: 11 siblings, primitive and often war torn China and Singapore, Christianity in a non-christian and sometimes hostile environment, and grinding poverty. The Hang family has seen all of this and more and not only survived but triumphed.

Blessings By The Dozen matter-of-factly but with great reverance tells the story of the Hangs, a Methodist family of China and Singapore during the lion's share of the 20th. century. The 40 years that the Reverend Hang and the family spent in Singapore were born witness to by the Reverend in his book My Christian Testimony .(1970) Now in Blessings By The Dozen, Paul Kee Hua Hang, Jr. looks back on the family life of his parents and 11 siblings during much of that same time.

From surviving World War II to, finally, an enlightening visit to China, the book weaves memories, insights, and scripture together into a faith filled testament of devotion to Christ, to family, and to a man's responsibility to both. With interesting anecdotes and loving memories, Mr. Hang takes the reader along on a journey through the life of his family and the difficulties of balancing a life that is suffused by more than one culture.

This is an eminently readable and inspiring book that will both entertain and educate. It deserves to be read.

I enjoyed so much the book "Blessings by the Dozens" by Paul Hang. This is a story about a large family of twelve children who are the off-spring of Pastor Paul S.H. Hang, Sr. and his dear wife. It tells the story of the difficulties and struggles of an unusually large Chinese pastor's family who, because of the call of God, moved to Singapore, established a church, watched it grow, along with watching and overseeing twelve Children grow. The amazing fact of this story is that all twelve children came to know and love the same Lord Jesus that Paul Hang, Sr. was serving. Perhaps the most wonderful lesson the book presents is: nothing is impossible when God is in it. It's only fitting that this story is told by Paul Kee-Hua Hang, Jr. Buy this book; you won't be able to put it down.
