Francis Yeoh is well acquainted with the works of:
Charles Spurgeon (1834-92)

Charles Wesley (1707-1788)
“Greatest hymn writer of all time”; composer of the famous and popular hymns Jesus, Lover of My Soul, Hark! The Herald Angels Sing, Soldiers of Christ, Arise and Rejoice! the Lord Is King!
Charles and his brother John Wesley were founders of the Methodist evangelical movement and preached to crowds of ten thousands. — source

The evangelistas in Malaysia are a rich, powerful and influential group.

The bride is Hosanna Chung and the bridegroom is Daniel.
Standing in the front row are the Who’s Who of the DAP evangelista Yang Berhormats. Dyana Sofya the almost-MP is also in the picture.
