“I believe with all of my heart that God’s people possess God’s provision to accomplish and fulfill God’s purposes in the world.” (from genereous giving quotations) Joel Vestal, founder of ServLife International

I was just thinking “Not bad, he has a quote next to David Livingstone, cool!)… And, hey! I hung out with this guy during the weekend!!! 🙂 There’s so much I need to learn from him when it comes to trusting God, taking risks, missions and global concerns – taking steps out of our “comfort zones”. Here’s an article/Interview What Does ‘Love Your Neighbor’ Mean in a Refugee Camp?

The so called “Emergent Malaysia” Christmas party last Saturday was really fun and though some couldn’t make it the last moment, we still had new friends join us. I’ve got loads of pictures which will look very different from the Central Jersey Emergent Cohort | #2. We’ve just warmed up with Mah-Jong paper and our different colour markers. It’s a good start. I’ll organize my thoughts a bit before I post more details.

Oh yes! what a delight yesterday to get the official letter informing me I’ve passed all my papers for the Master’s entrance exam … so January 2005 will mark my return to “student-hood” again … at least part-time.

In march, we’re expecting baby two to arrive … so that’s another “parenthood” upgrading … “phew! wow! ai…sei! wahlau! …” (a mixture of expressions there).

The process of “re-whatever” (i.e. review, reflect, relign, repent, relook, resume, … etc) has begun for me starting from today … it’s more like closing the chapters. I’ve missed posting quite a number of eventful youth camp experiences, and personal thoughts, besides some key “lessons” for this year.

Just today itself was full of apologies for some slip ups here and there. I really need to have some ginseng maybe … I started this morning with Isaiah 52:7 … Peace on earth that’s what we need …

“How lovely on the mountains Are the feet of him who brings good news, Who announces peace And brings good news of happiness, Who announces salvation, {And} says to Zion, “Your God reigns!”
