=325= Reflections: Japalang Thoughts

I think writing cards is a really nice thing! To be able to share your life and thank the person with the words you picked! I really do love really it! However, card writing just takes WAY too long for me!

It takes me forever to write a card, I need to think of the past year and think of what happened. Think of what to thank him/her for. Think of what to say. Think of what to share. The whole process just takes too long! On the night before New Year Eve, I sat myself down to type down what I want to say to my mentors. I type and I took close to 2 hours and I still cannot finish… 😩

Then when I say myself down to write the card, the average time taken for me to write one was 15 minutes for one person. Just -sigh-

It is very tough for me to find the time to sit down and do that now that I have so much school work.

Though, it was nice! πŸ™‚ I actually had an idea of a gift, but didn’t have the time to execute it!

Met up with Javier and Zephen today! Was nice! We shared about the expectations of ourselves as leaders and what we would like to achieve in cell this year.

Mine was simple.

Expectation of myself was to be a good example to my boys and to care for them during the week.

What I would like to achieve, to have a cell that is bonded, that will support each other as brothers. This has been my goal for cell ever since I shared cell with Kiat. In Kiat’s words, “There are other outlets to spiritual feeding; service, ministry etc. So I would concentrate on giving them a place where they can support each other and be brothers.” I just think that everyone needs a place where they can find rest and enjoy.

Our cell’s tentative name is “J-Walkers”  for Walking with Jesus! πŸ˜‚

Serving today and having that extra two hours let me roam around and see my boys in action. I saw Jerome having regionals and having fun. Though I didn’t see Royce lead, but it was good to see my boys in cell! πŸ˜€ Really pray that they will be fine! Protect them Lord. 

Was so happy over something today! πŸ˜€

Once again, I found that the weakest part of my spiritual walk is evangelism. I am just so bad at it! 😦 So to counter that, I signed up for the Befrienders ministry! HAHA! Well, I see a point in it and that is something that I want to challenge myself to do. So hopefully, that works out!

On Wed, JiaXing asked me if I wanted to teach in MDS for the bouna branch. Well, to be honest, I am really interested! Like I really like teaching drums! So I thought about it and I am giving it a try! Maybe just Sat morning! Hopefully, I will have the time to do it!

During the two hours of free time that I had, I decided to use a 16 inch crash for worship! It was nice! Like I was able to keep time with it like a ride and use it to do swells and fill up the frequencies and dynamics! Was great! Should have done that long ago!

Recently, I was giving moving up to YA more thought and I am becoming more and more interested with moving up next year! Not anything luhh, but I just think that I am not cut out to be a RL. Having more time to do stuff that I want to might be nice too! The friends there are definitely a great plus! Now is now lah! But if God calls at the end of the year, can’t run one! Haha! So we will see how! Even if I am moving up next year doesn’t mean I can slack off in ministry next year! Make this year the last and leave youth with no regrets! πŸ™‚

I really want to backpack somewhere! Planning to do it sometime after I graduate! Don’t have an exact plan or place I wanna go yet! But I would like to stay somewhere where I can get to know the locals well! So yeah! Hopefully I can! πŸ˜€
