thou lust in my heart tried lead me to adultery, and worst walking my flesh out of Lord's territory mercy delivery, like carry blood away from the heart by artery, Lord says: my Child, fear not! seek peace in Monastery.
this march seem passing very fast, i went back to penang to coach in ANTS(advance NCO trainning school). well at least i made my promise to serve in Boys brigade and i did.Well good to hope in the young people and learn a lot them. and to my suprise was that Christine from perak make it to ANTS as an officer.things change.oh,and when i was back there i realise my parent keep me in dark about my grandma, that she couldnt walk as she fell down from the chair during CNY. Now she has to walk slowly using the aid. Parent want me to focus on my study and keep this away from us, grateful when they send me back to kl by picking me up straight from camp site in teluk bahang, going there from my house will be like an hour drive...thanks mom and dad.
my sister Grace is transfer back to penang yesterday. hope she fit well and take care of them..
and i took up the easter production at the last minute, kee aun was like call me in 10pm and i say yes without thinking too much. God have His own plan for everyone, every year easter or every project have its own problems, like i say in last year, we still have the same God to guide us thou we have different team and people. now it is two day before the D -Day , we have nothing else but trust in Him, hope i can , no ..i will write a grateful post about it , like i did last two year, Lord we pray for your grace and mercy..
this may gonna host life game, it seem not progressing, wonder where would i be, the next 3 months. but struggle when mom offer me to go for Euro trip... aiz.. guess gonna miss it for Life game..but trust God for things to come.
and the greatest fear for me now is .. my thesis which have to be written in German. havent finalize everything but will have to pass up 1st draft this coming Friday..my supervisor was awesome. but just that i have to brush up my language skill.. and hope he can understand what i write.
talking about language skills, i counted and found i learn 10 new languages in UM, majoring German, followed by tagalog,Spanish, Portuguese, french, Italian, Japanese, Dutch , russian,
and this sem Korean, really need time to master all. but think the most enjoying will be korean as having Jonathan and helen and seong jin and sophee in the scene. a christain base enviroment realy is different.
think my greatest joy so far is to have great fellowship with friends ,like,see zoey coming back from uk. and the fellowship with shu kheng and cell group and people all around, having putting all the worries behind and release myself. letting go my grief aint easy, but it willl be an ongoing assignment =D.
march is coming to an end.. and start wondering about my future,master ...work.. love..ministry..
but, in God we trust. in God all things are possible.
our God is the potter and in his hands we are clay, need not to worry because there's God as we pray, last day, stories that we can't forget just shall we let it stay? angel on earth where are your shoulder for me to lay?
♥ like the petrol that make the functioning engine start, a simple act or smile can easily touched ones heart, blind dart, love of success is neither well-planned nor being smart, thou Shall leave everything to God after worked his part.
as her heart was broken and build between us a gate, restore not by time but only by His grace His faith, can't wait, the pain remains when god is not seen in the new date, thou suffer for willling both but until then, i wait
Why to many could I easily started to rave, but in front of her hardly could I find the word brave, time pave? her ears shall never hear for her how my heart have crave as the love will treasured within and buried to grave.
like canary at dawn with songs but dare not to sing, or the eagle on ground with eager spread not its wing, poor thing, life turns a man that owns a kingdom not called as king. when the diamonds on her finger carry not his ring.
And it all start with this message from the camp committee..
Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ!! =)
If you're getting this email, it's because......
YEP YOU ARE COMING FOR PKV'S T.H.E. CAMP 2010! And you know what, it's going to be awesome! I can feel it in my bones!
So anyway, here's a few reminders and instructions that you will need.... so READ carefully yah.
*deep breath* Here goes.
1. The private bus is not allowed to enter university. Thus, all campers are to meet at
a) UM main bus stop (behind library) at 8am OR b) In front of MAHSA College at 8.30am, where the bus will be.
So yep, we will have to walk over from the bus stop to MAHSA. But no worries, heavy luggage will be driven there.
2. If you have lost the other 2/3rd's of your form, here are the things to bring:
a) Bible (dont want share share, bring your own if you have) b) Stationery (plus an extra notebook, if you write alot) c) Thicker clothing (a jacket will be good for nights) d) Toiletries (especially toothbrush!) e) Torchlight (just in case) f) A small gift (worth RM5 and below, bought or handmade, doesnt matter) g) Sportswear (especially comfortable shoes to walk around, run around in) h) Money for the remaining part of your fees (if you have not paid in full)
Lastly, bring an open heart for God to work in :)
So, that's it for now. We are very thankful that you have decided to invest these 4 days to attend the camp. We believe it is no mere coincidence but that it is God's will that we will all be gathered there under one roof to worship Him as one body and to learn more about Him together. Continue to uphold the camp in prayer as the committee works out the final kinks and also for each and every camper that nothing will deter him/her from attending the camp.
Anyhow, keep checking your mail regularly between now and saturday in case of any updates. Feel free to email me back with any further questions.
And please, reply me with a simple "noted.", "seen", "ok" or anything, just so I know you've read the email and gotten the important information :) Thanks!
Blessings, T.H.E. Camp Committee 2010 =)
-- "And if God cares so wonderfully for flowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, He will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?" - Matthew 6:30

4)benjamin Here I go with my part of the rhyme
Just when I thought last year would be the last time
I'd be at camp; here I am where it began
At my first in 2008, in Camerons once again.
Can't wait to rendezvous up on the hills
With you dear friends and our Lord until
With strength renewed, borne by the Lion's roar
We'll walk till we run, and run till we soar.

Ingin saya merompak mereka, Untuk alih perhatian, saya melaung "Merdeka!" no, nothing to do with camp it has but that's the point of being lame, i guess.

..Dear Mr/Miss Organiser, must the "small gift" be gift-wrapped?
I'm wondering if I should say anything about the samples of poetic expression offered on this thread...especially the various types of rhyme (and non-rhyme)...some of you even mastered true rhyme! (Yes, there's such a thing) :P

17)Time waits for no man;
It is a lifeboat, for women and children first
Who cannot else get away, they climb
Up and in, as fool follows fool, and slowly leave.
Time does not wait.
Time waits if it can;
So Tolkien wrote, of the Witch King's bloody thirst
That he who must slay, must in his time
By Eowyn's rule be of the race of Eve.
Time lies in state.
ben ongWe shall not cease from exploration And the end of all our exploring Will be to arrive where we started And know the place for the first time.
I used to go to church and hear the preacher say, If you don't have Jesus, you'll be in hell someday! The preachers used to preach hard and by the hour. I heard one say, "Pray 15 minutes and listen for an hour."
I heard many prayers to Jesus, like he was Santa Claus; heard many of them pray for just their maws and paws. Then, I heard one old meek preacher pray for more power. He said, "Pray for 15 minutes and listen for an hour."
Well, do you know that, after many a year, I learned to reach the heart of God's ear? He whispered, softly, in my ear, "Want more power? Just pray for 15 minutes and listen for an hour."
The lesson that I learned, from my God, as for years and years I prayed, "Help me, God," He said, "Won't ever learn, the way you have, for power. Just simply pray for 15 minutes and listen for an hour."
Well, it finally reached my heart from my ear. The power, He gave to me, fills me with cheer. He whispered to me, "One way to real power Is to pray for 15 minutes and listen for an hour."
Praise the Lord for the blessings He gives. Through hours of prayer, I really know He lives. For, He showed me the way to more, more, power. Now, I can pray forever and listen by the hour.
