Light a Million Candles

Hey people. It's been a long LONG time since i've been here, but I've just come across something which I have to put out there.

Recently there's been this clip on TV telling us about child pornography and how more children are being put out on the net.
The avergae age of a child being "displayed" is 9. Just imgaine, innocent cretures such as them being portrayed like this for the world to see.
Children who've experienced this, will probably never forget it.
It'll be like a horrible nightmare playing over and over again in their heads for (probably) the rest of their lives.

This really grabbed me, which why i'm telling you this.
By going to this website, you can light a candle for them.
They don't need your money, just your support.

thanks

Ignite!

My oh my, long time no post liao. I think I speak for everyone when i said that. Haha, how's everyone, not much update except from the reports of Minjie from Lynn. Funny thing that we only hear about him on this blog when he is away.

Let's move on, I'm definitely not here to talk about Jie, I'll leave that to Lynn. I wanna talk about the FIRE conference that happened over the last weekend. It was really happening sia. Bonnke was a really inspiring with his simple yet passionate preaching. His illustrations were fresh and interesting, captivating his audiences with sharing his love for Jesus, with the emphasis of saving souls for Him. In his words "Hell empty, Heaven Full!"

The heart of this 60+ year old evangelist is for Africa and his mission: to see 100 million souls saved in this decade. So far up to now, he already has more than 40 millions recorded dedications to Jesus! How does he do that? Simply GO for Jesus.

Here's some of the highlights that he preached:
"The Bible says 'Young men see visions and old men dream dreams', but I say to the old men that its time to wake up. If not the dreams will always remain dreams."
"God work with the workers, He runs with the runners, but he doesn't sit with the sitters"
He also said that some Christians are frozen: after they received Christ, they freeze themselves. Cold to the world of unsaved and preserve themselves for heaven
And why be a millionaire in this world where things will perish, be a SOUL millionaire!

As I sit and listen, my heart beats to the resonance of the passion of his life. It also echoes what I have been telling my care group for the last few sessions. So young people, what is your passion and desire for God in life? Its time for you to thaw yourself and GO out there. For God has called all of us to be fishers of men.

Remember how many times we have felt God's touch only to go back and choose to be the way we were. How we believe the devil that its normal for us to just be fired up during conferences and camps only to go back and lead our old lives. My friends, we need to keep the passion a raging fire and not just a flame. For if we do not fuel it, by doing what God has set out or called us to do, it'll eventually go out.

Is it really possible?!

Here's just a short entry of something quite spectacular and mind boggling. Okie so here's what happened. Most of you should now know that I have commenced work at Spageddies as a "runner" or serving food. Anyway, after my first day of work, I had a dream that I was serving food in a very busy restaurant. A different restaurant and I can still roughly describe the layout of the restaurant. There was this girl who was also serving food but I didn't know who that girl was. The dream goes on...

Amazingly, when I went for work the following day, there she was! Or at least it looked like the girl in my dreams. Weird? Stunning? Is this possible?

Has this happened to anyone else before? HAHA.

Movie outing TOMORROW!


This is abit of a last minute outing, since everyone (inclusive of me) is running a tight schedule. We will be watching the sequel to the very funny, "Ice Age". I believe Kar Leong and gang will be meeting earlier for dinner but if you can't make it for the dinner gathering, the movie is at 7.30 pm at Lido. Do inform Kar Leong or anyone who says "contact me" in the tag board area, know that you are coming so that we can wait for you or buy tix for you.

Try this..

This just in, I have been told that if you stare at the extreme 4 corners of your ceiling repeatedly, moving right each time for 3 consecutive rounds, seated at where you are, that you will experience that you are in a circular shaped room rather than a square or rectagular shaped room! Amazing! Try it..Remeber to turn 3 rounds for it to work properly.



















































APRIL FOOL! suckers. Yeah yeah yeah! 1 for Joel zero for you! =)

A different kind of army

It has been confirmed! The boss of spageddies called to inform me that I was hired for the job. I will be starting next week as a trainee in the kitchen for the first 2 weeks, under the supervision of a trainer and to get used to the food before being able to take orders and serve the customers. One successful interview.

I hope my next interview will just be as successful. I was called for an interview by SMU for the business course which was one of my five options. It will be held this wednesday and I heard there will be a debate session?! essay writing and what not.. Scary! Please pray for me, that the interview will be smooth and that I will get the position in SMU.

Speaking of scary, afew of my school mates have just received their enlistment letters! Most of them will be enlisted in June which leaves just about 2 months more before getting drafted into army! I don't know if I got my letter yet. My parents are out of town and I think the letters get sent to the office. Our Army, the decisive force!

BUT I want to go for the Germany mission trip too. =(
