Must blog before 2009 ends!
Am back in PJ, but couldn’t help missing home at times.. Only Jong and me in the hse.. so u can imagine how quiet the hse was besides occasional creaking sounds of the old house + our shrieks on meeting old friends Cockroachy and Lizardy..
Oh yea I mentioned Joshua Youth Encounter Camp, so gotta post some pictures here! It was 3 days and 2 nights.. and we slept in church! Quite a new experience haha cuz you know like your hse is just a few kms away and yet you cant go home! Initially we planned it in Permai Beach Camp and finally had to change the venue due to tight budget.. but never did we realise that it was God’s plans from the beginning because our speaker, Rev Ho, had had a vision or revelation from God calling him to preach in Kuching even before we planned the camp and said it would be in the church! How great is our God who knows all things!!
And when we knew we’re on the right track, we worked hard and full speed for it in 2 weeks to get things ready! The deco of the church, to make up to the change of venue hahah.. Thanks to Samuel and gang, the stage was sort of transformed~~ I should have a before and after pic here.. Our theme was more on praying for the city and nations, so Sammy got Joshua and Paul and Federick and gang to set up a City of God in the middle of stage.
Morning devotion.. very enlightening!Indoor team building on the first day… Forming the longest line with whatever you have on you! And the next day we had a Treasure Hunt + Amazing Race thingy… Ooh and I love the last station! Are you patient or not?
This is really testing your patience! It’s not easy okay…
If you’re not patient then you’d better be brave.. blow and burst balloons! I couldn’t help laughing coz Henry kept covering his ears and Sammy was like trying hard to stick their bottoms together.. You can hear the balloon screaming ‘No! No!’ on the verge of bursting..
And.. that’s all! Haha.. really didnt get to take many photos.. have to wait for Samuel’s masterpiece.. Anyway.. it was truly an awesome encounter with God.. what I thought to be trivial or unnecessary in life.. God shows how important it is to deal with them.. and when He comes, you just can’t run, because our God is a chasing God! Sounds scary? Yet I’m thankful for it.. because I dont want to be lost and end up in the boiling sulfur pool..!!
Joshua Youth’s very first Encounter Camp.. though not everything go as we had planned.. the theme and topics for sermons.. but God knew what’s best for us, and He knew better to cleanse us before we go on the long way for Him.. and I witnessed a dramatic change in us on that Saturday during Youth Worship Service! Truly no one could change and renew us completely except for Him!
So keep up the fire and passion Joshua Youth! See you next February! ^^
