Looking through the year, the trips I went to Thailand on a more real mission trip, where that focus on why you are there is so important, serving as your basis for you presence there. A trip to KL for a Children's Conference that gave me another perspective to Children's in church, coming to a realisation that children need to start owning this mustard seed of faith from young, you no need to wait for classes to teach you about faith.
OUTRigger Island was a blast, things the songs teach to the children. Watching people taking up more leadership roles, kids loving their Island guides(I/Cs), children cheering for one another in games, seems like something has been imprinted in the hearts of the children.
the major changes in my life from boy to army boy(hopefully army man:P). God blessed me with a wonderful company, really cool people in the bunk, the beauty of his creation in the jungles, and the sun rising every morning. I learnt about humility, especially when you start getting more fit, and your body starts showing a little hint & people walk past you with "woww, woww, somebody getting fitter ar" , How do you handle that...
You depend on HIM more, especially when you feel unwell, then you realised how weak you are in the midst of HIM, and on top of getting well by his Grace, is to continue to praise HIM, acknowledging he's 1st...
Fieldcamp, with the moon brightly lited, spending reflection time while on the night duty looking out into the field.
been learning things, trying to maintain the fitness level(wanting to pass my Fitness test la)
GOd must have HIS purpose for me being there.
perhaps to continue to serve as much to my abilities for HIM..
I hope you had a great Year, with thanksgivings that you can share.... May 2009 for each one of you be filled with another year that we give thanks to the Lord daily, with wisdom to remember that we need to depend on HIM(:
