Pastor’s family hopes he will be home for reunion dinner

13th Feb 2018

PETALING JAYA: It has been a year since Pastor Raymond Koh was abducted but his wife is praying for a miracle, hoping he will somehow show up for the Chinese New Year reunion meal.

Susanna Liew, 62, said her family was not giving up on seeing him again.

“Our hope is for him to join us for the celebrations and see his mother. She doesn’t know about his abduction,” she said.

Liew said the past year had been long and difficult for the family.


Liew said Esther had lost a lot of weight since her dad’s disappearance.

“It’s like a yoyo. Some days I feel hopeful but there are days I feel down. I hope no one else experiences the same pain,” she said.

“Personally, I still believe he is alive. He could have been detained and kept somewhere.

“I don’t know what they want to do with him. I am sure God is with my husband.”

Asked what she missed most about him, Liew said “his time of prayer and devotion when reading the Bible”.

Liew said Koh was the livewire of every party, too.

He could play his own compositions on his guitar, she said.

Koh also founded Harapan Komuniti, a non-profit organisation that undertakes social and charity works.
