Batam mission trip : 20th - JB and 21st Aug 08 - Batam

In the 22nd morning, the sky was cloudy, everyone was worrying about the trip would have to delay for this bad whether. True enough... we were hit by a stormy and windy whether while we were on the long way (an hour drive) to local 'small' jeti. Amazingly the rain stopped when we arrived, everybody was praising God! Amen for that.

First day in Cemara Island, we held a klinik at 3pm, and kids time in Noah ministry. There were about 40 patients came. And at my side, there were about 20 kids in the class, we sang songs, we sang malay and english songs with action and dance, also played a short skit - I am Special, due to shortage of artists, everyone in this trip accept Doctor Wong, Jessy, Margaret and Vijay, they have to set up the clinic at the school class room, the rest had to play a role, featuring : Fu Wei - Snail ( he was real slow snail), Gabriel - Miss Tortoise(hahaha, 'she' was beautiful 'girl'), Ps Yu - The Fish( poor fish), Francis -the butterfly(keke, 'it' was a Jumbo butterly), and Ps. Sonny - The Cat(oh! I like the cat, so did the children!). Oooh! o_O~ guess what? They were good actors and 'actress', haha! The kids enjoyed the performance, we didn't have enough time for rehearsal, it was all about spontaneous, they have done well, pretty well. We have a craft session right after the skit - 'I am Special' photo frame, it is the first time ever they were teach to do craft. The duration of today's session was about 2 hours. Praise the Lord. Things had done according to the plan.

God is good all the time - short video clip on the boat.

23 Aug 9am - 11am Klinik time as well as Children story time. There were about 12 kids attended today, I shared the 'Wordless Book'. Thankfully all of them invited Jesus at the end of the story, which I strongly believe the gospel seed has been sowed in their tiny heart. Praise the Lord of his great work and of His grace. After lunch in Noah's center, while we were waiting for the boat, we had extra ordinary fellowship time, friends from Indonesia sang us a few beautiful songs, and also singing english praise and worship songs together, wonderful time, and most important thing - it was raining that time, arhhh~! As soon as the rain stopped, we loaded all of our luggage and saying good bye to our friends in Cemara Island.

As soon as we back to Batam Jessy and I visited single-mom house, to share some of God's word and testimonies to encourage them, I did a short sharing then we prayed for them.

24th Aug first english service at 7am for missionaries. Second service 9am preached by Pastor Yu, I was in another building for Children Ministry, telling stories and did some ballooning!

The Five Love Languages

To all the friends who are willing to 'choose' to live a loving life. This is my 3rd time reading the book, this time in english, which I could share with people around easily, why do I say so, because I am too lazy to type in mandarin, somehow english is easier.

The first time I read this book, it was last year, I am very much agreed with, and totally believe any one could live with any one, this take effort and action, no doubt it is a lesson for everyone out here with flesh and emotion...and with blood. I encourage you to buy this book from Focus on the Family bookstore at PJ SS13, it is worth of investment, read this book, you will find the key to live a successful marriage.

I believe 'Love' is a choice, it is an 'Action', you need to put in effort in order to attain it, don't give up, let us press on to make our lives wonderful.

Marriage Myth: Married life is unhappy life.

Fact: Studies show that married people have better emotional and physical health, longer lives, greater sexual satisfaction,
greater incomes, and more accumulated wealth.

"Being sincere is not enough. We must be willing to learn our spouse’s primary love language if we are to be effective communicators of love.

My conclusion after thirty years of marriage counseling is that there are basically five emotional love languages—five ways that people speak and understand emotional love. However, there may be numerous dialects. The important thing is to speak the love language of your spouse.

Communicating love isn’t as easy as feeling “in love,” because it’s quite a different thing. Falling in love is not an act of the will or a conscious choice. It’s effortless. One who is “in love” is not genuinely interested in fostering the personal growth of the other person. If the euphoric pleasure of being “in love” never ended, we might never experience true love and meaningful communication.

Love is something you do for someone else, not something you do for yourself. Most of us do many things each day that do not come “naturally” for us. For some of us, that is getting out of bed in the morning. We go against our feelings and get out of bed because we believe there is something worthwhile to do that day. And normally, before the day is over, we feel good about having gotten up. Our actions preceded our emotions.

The same is true with love. We discover the primary love language of our spouse, and we choose to speak it whether or not it is natural for us. You might not love the language itself, but speaking it will clearly communicate love to your spouse.

Love is a choice. And either partner can start the process today. ' by Dr. Gary Chapman

Science and God

Just received an email from friend that titled Science and God. An Atheist Professor of Philosophy was speaking to his class on the Problem Science has with GOD, the ALMIGHTY.

It wasn't pleasant (to me) at the beginning of the conversation, not until the student (Albert Einstein) threw some questions back to his professor.

Kuala Kubu Bharu - Day Trip

It was a day supposedly to search for a suitable camp site for future outing, God is so good, he helped Ben and Mun Wah to get their dream home. In this trip Ben, May, Qi Yang, Mun Wah and me, we went after attending a Church Wedding celebration. Ben has been looking for a house, planning to move to KKB for good, because May loves this place.

Arrival of KKB Heights
We met a heavy rain on the way to KKB, the rain turned drizzle when we reached town, give thanks to the Lord, we looked for a restaurant without any hesitation, those traditional type of Kopitiam, stop for a cup of Kopi and Roti Bakar. Then took a slow walk around the street, all of us were enjoying the drizzly day.

Start our hunting journey right after the Kopi-break, that was about 4:40pm, we drove towards Selangor Dam, and saw a country bungalow in the hill, and trying to find the way to get into that place, then saw a sign board by the road side: KKB Heights bungalow/cabin lot for sale, made a call to the agent, get the location and all necessary details, we head to the country house first, was taking a few turnings, couldn't get to the place, it was gated and locked. But we have a surprise discover, we found a small village of aborigines, the village is built in a hue, the environment is quiet and peace, but I found it humid in this place, those houses and lands are not for sale. we spent about 15 minutes in this place, enjoying the tranquility of the village.

Then we went to KKB Heights, reaching there at about 7pm, everyone of us was so amazed by the fascinating scene - the sea of cloud covering in the neighbouring hue, we were greeted with the fresh cool air. That was really gorgeous! Ben and Mun Wah took the layout plan from a guard, looking for the perfect lot, but many are taken, especially those we think is perfect spot, at this hill top, where you could see the sun rise and sun set. it is too good to leave this place, we spent about an hour at this place. leaving at about 8pm.

When the night breaks in, mist everywhere, as in we are at Genting Highlands,
....I should say - way much better than Genting Highlands.

Strata Come Again - Day Trip

Strata Day Trip Group Photo

Utter frankly, this was rather big and heavy for Gabriel, i was worrying all the way, first, he wasn't in a proper shoes- slippery, and there were many rock climbing, I was in prayer mood all the way, though. 2nd, I forgot to do one important thing, to bring our lunch, but really thankful of those who shared their food. 3rd, it's raining, Gabriel was very cold, I was under packed, I used to bring rain coat but this time i missed. He was complaining all the way, about this muddy road, slippery rocks, cold, and leeches...

Adventurous part was after the river changed colour, and the water level going up in a flash, all of us ran to the bank, looking for the higher ground, then started realized, this is not the way we came up, and it is impossible to cross the river back to the trail. We have to open a path way, a few heroes among us, dashing up and down, cutting thru the bushes, some are thorny - without parang. They are true survivor, give them a salute!

For this trip, Gabriel and I having a chance to experiencing the river swell, the muddy abseiling, and slide. And I had a chance to teach Gabriel to face difficult situation in a positive way.

Thanks to all the heroes, you have given us an unforgetable memories. May God bless you all!

Please feel free to go to this link for clearer story.
Most of the photos were taken by me, only some took by friend's camera, i did a simple compilation into a Strata Come Again Trekking Log.

At the age of 33, Jesus was condemned to death penalty.

That was then the 'worst' death. Only the worst criminals could die like Jesus. And with Jesus things were worst, because not all the criminals condemned to death could receive nails on their hands and feet.

Of course, nails... Big nails! Each was 15 a 20 cm long, with a point of 6 cm. Another point was sharp.

The nails were craved into the pulses, and not into the palms, as we are used to hear. In the pulse, there's a tendon which extends till the shoulder, and when the nails were being hammered, that tendon broke, obliging Jesus to reinforce all the muscles of his back, so that he could breath as He was loosing all the air from his lungs.

In this way, He was forced to support Himself onto the nail craved in his feet, which was bigger than those craved into his pulses, for both feet were craved together. And, as his feet could not endure for long time without tearing, Jesus was forced to alternate that 'cycle' so that He could breath.

Jesus endured that reality over 3 hours.

Yes, over 3 hours! Long time, isn't it? Few minutes before He died, Jesus was not bleeding anymore.

He was simply pouring water from his cuts and holes.

When we imagine Him injured, we only picture Him with injuries, but it is not enough; His wounds were true holes, made in his body.

He had no more blood to bleed, He only poured water.

Human body is composed by near 3.5 litres of blood (for adult).

Jesus poured all 3.5 litres of his blood; He had three nails hammered into his members; a crown of thorns on his had and, beyond that, a Roman soldier who nailed a spear into his chest.

All these without mentioning the humiliation He passed after carrying his own cross for almost 2 kilometres, while the crowd spat on his face and throwed stones (the cross was almost 30 kg of weight, only for its higher part, where his hands were nailed).

Jesus had to pass all this experience, so that you can have free access to God.

So that your sins could be 'washed'. All of them, with no exception! Don't ignore this situation. HE DIED FOR YOU!. For you, who now read this e-mail. Do not believe that He only died for others (those who go to the church or for pastors, bishops, etc).

He died for you! It is easy to pass jokes or foolish photos by e-mail, but when it comes to God, sometimes you feel ashamed to forward to others because you are worried on what they may think about your moral.

Accept the reality, the truth that JESUS IS THE ONLY SALVATION FOR THE WORLD.

God has plans for you, show all your friends what He experienced to save you. Now think on this! May God bless your life!

60 seconds with God...

During 60 seconds, leave whatsoever your doing and seize this opportunity! Let's see if satan can stop this.

All you have to do is:

1. Simply pray for the person who sent this message to you: Lord, you better know the life of _________. I ask You to bless him/her in all realms and make him/her prospering. Take care of his/her family, his/her health, his/her work and all his/her plans for this year. Lead him/her not into temptation, but deliver him/her from evil. In Jesus' name, amen.

2.Then, send this message to 10 people.

3. Once, 10 people will pray for you and you will make that many people pray to God for other people.

4. Think a moment and appreciate the power of God in your life, for doing what pleases Him.

If you are not ashamed in doing this, please, follow Jesus' instructions. He said (Matthew 10:33): 'But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven'.

If you are not ashamed, send this message... Only if you believe in Him.

Yes, I love God. He is my source of life and my saviour. He keeps me alive day and night.

Without Him, I am nothing, but with Him 'I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me'. Philippians 4:13.

Clubing no longer my ideal place for drink.

Spending time with friend at my house, Josephine brought two bottles of wine, one is Japanese prune's wine, another is white wine, it is good to spend time here with friends, low spending, with comfortable music and lighting.

I loved this arrangement, which i can have my time without neglecting Gabriel.

Rainy Night

A rainy night, went out supper with both my parent and Gabriel. Brought them for Tosai at Restaurant Maju&Maju in USJ 14, which the Tosai is the best so far. Gabriel and I can consume 3 pieces. We chat about rainy day, I told them I like rainy day, I feel cold, quiet ( you could only hear the pitter patter nature rhythm that made from rain drops) peace, romantic, good..... never realized till my dad said he likes rainy day too. Oooh, dad and I have the same like. Never too late to know him, though he is about 67 this year.

If God wants you to trust Him

"If God wants you to trust Him"
wrote Donald Grey Barnhouse

"He puts you in a place of difficulty.

If He wants you to trust Him greatly,

He puts you in a place of impossibility.

For when a thing is impossible,

then we who are so prone to move things by the force

of our own being can say,

'Lord, it has to be You.

I am utterly, absolutely nothing.'"
