There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. ~ 1 John 4:18

A Summary Of The Past Few Months

May 18
I turned 30... i didn't manage to write that in as you may see that age doesn't really matter to me. But it does indicate that my "runway" to impact ppl for the Lord has become shorter. So there is in some way an urgency to be more focussed and purposeful in living. Was a great time spending time with my MAG. Can't really remember what we talked about, but it was the first day for my neighbour Joseph Siew in the MAG. He's been a blessing since he's been in the MAG for the past 2 months.
During the MAG gathering, some of my friends from Church.. surprised me. They worked COVERTLY with my MAG Leader to prepare a surprise birthday party. Was very overwhelmed. Especially with the gift that they gave me. It was a cash gift to enable me to go for my Cambodia mission trip. Man!! when God's good there's so many stories to tell you just don't know where to start!... better get back to work. God Bless Thee! 

June 4-6
Attended Church Camp at Damai Laut. Will elaborate on that in another log.. In short one of the nicest Church Camps I've attended. Thank God for Steven who blessed me with 50% of the church camp fees. Was short of cash because I was preparing to go for a Cambodia Mission Trip. I did however go there to play golf with my MAG leader , Wan Teeand another cell leader, Chris Mak. Was a good time of golf getting to know Chris Mak better. We prayed before teeing off. It's a practice that I believe is good where we believe that in everything God has created for us to enjoy there is a spiritual aspect to it. Golf has taught me over the years to control my temper and to realise that God's in control. Whilst God can bend the rules of nature to help me play a good game... but He won't. He allows me to go through my frustrations and joys of the game. To teach me to be patient, know my abilities and talents and to know that HE is in control.

June 25 - July 1
Went to Cambodia for a week on a mission trip. Still have stories to tell from that.. wow so much to write. But the thing I gained most is the boldness to share God's Good News to all according to the opportunities that He presents me with. Will try to compile something onto VCD for you all to view.

July 20 - Summing it all up till now...
A summing up of the year till today. It's definitely been a year of BREAKTHROUGH! God's always been good, it's just only now my paradigm's shifting to see it clearer each time. Breakthroughs I've wanted to see this year
1. Actually going for a Mission Trip
2. Healing of my sickness
3. Deepening relationship with God through His Word
4. Growth in leading the cell.
So far have seen #1 and #2 come true.. and I believe God is preparing me for greater stuff so that I can live my life more purposefully. Till the next time I blog. Hopefully tomorrow, BE EXTREMELY BLESSED!!!
