Haha, where do i start? Let me start at the end. I am really thankful for the month December no matter how much my last post expressed my frustrations. I am so glad i am able to push the ‘reset’ button. Not to the guy i was on 2012, but to clean up the mess i have made. I am glad that at this point i am feeling much better before God now. However, this year was an amazing year no matter how rough it had been. Well, from half a ministry(Probation for CAMY) to three this year. From secondary school life to Poly life. All these have been really defining and has shaped me this year.
My ministry commitments(Cell leading, CAMY and Homework Club) is probably one of the biggest highlight of my life. Let me start with Homework Club, The original plan was to have it once every week, which, if you think about it, it is quite intense. I thought it would be a good way to force me to study every week. However, it ended before it started, there wasn’t much response at all… 😦 It became a peak season kinda event. Now that i think about it, it was a blessing in disguise, I am horribly taxed by just having Cell Leading and CAMY. Though it did not impact the youths much, this ministry has impacted me through the people. Special shoutout to two people: Sis Sheena and Loke.
- Sis Sheena, thank you for being such an awesome Lao Ban to me! (I am sorry, but i really got very used to calling you ‘Lao Ban’! Haha! :P) Thank you for praying for me for my first set that i played for! It was support that has blessed me so much! Jiayou for 2014!
- Loke! Hey Bro, thank you for being so available and just being there for me! 🙂 I know i just pulled you along because i was worried i couldn’t handle it, but you came for both sessions and committed to it! You have been great support to me! Thank you! 🙂 I am glad we grew closer this year!
CAMY next i guess. This is the first ministry that i first decided to commit to and i believe the order was correct. I never would have joined CAMY if i first started cell leading. Passing Probation was a huge milestone for me! I still remember how amazing worship was on stage for the first set i served! I gained so much from this ministry! My craft was structured, i gained new friends and i experienced worship unlike any other! I really give thanks!
I wanted to leave Cell Leading for last, for it was a great experience in FOOTSTEPS! Honestly, I wasn’t as pumped up to take up FOOTSTEPS, because it was so weird to take a cell that you never been in before and it is an all boys cell too, so it was quite awkward! I still remember my first cell lesson! HAHA! It was so awkward…. I do not know how to approach them, so i stood up when everyone was sitting down, like a teacher, i don’t think it was great at all… 😛 Well, i really thank God for mentors like Bro Tat Wai and Bro Ken! You guys have helped me structured my lessons to be more applicable to them! I am really proud of the FOOTSTEPS at the end of 2013! You guys have grown SO much! 😀 Lucas and Jun Kang, I am excited to see the cell(s) you guys would take in 2014! Kiat and Long, i couldn’t have asked for better leaders! You both are awesome! Long, visit often ok? Kiat, Let’s do our best! 🙂 (Charis, if you are reading this, Trust me, you will do great!)
Another highlight of 2013 is me getting closer to my mentors! This is a HUGE one. Bro Tat Wai, i will miss you lots! Thank you for being such a pillar of support to me! Haha, the rest is in the card already! Sis Elsa, thank you for your willingness to listen to me! Thank you for being such a spiritual mother to me! Sis Ga, thank you for always being there! Always being so supportive and listening to me! Nell, thank you for always giving great tips and pushing me to shape my craft! Thank you for that one phrase you said to me on my first set, ‘Just Worship God!’! Bro Leb and Darren, thank you for being so kind and patient to teach me! Kennaf, thank you for the support and help you have given me over the years, thank you for bearing with me!
J333, Haha, isn’t it obvious? This prayer meeting that i decided to go for 2 years ago has proved to be an amazing investment in my life. I loved the time i spent just praying and worshipping God! Then i loved the fellowship i had with people before the prayer meeting and over supper! Alvin, thank you allowing us to lepak by the pool(though you probably would say, “Thank you? For what?” Haha! Just accept it Bro!)!
I really thank God for my amazing class T06 as well! Each an everyone of you all is so precious and fun! T06 in my opinion is the best class i have ever been in and i wouldn’t have it any other way! Every day i look forward to go to school because of you guys! You guys really helped me come out of my shell! I love going crazy with you guys! Lets finish this last term together! 🙂
Thank you Bro Leb, Bro Ken, Sis Andrea and Jowen for the amazing Christmas present! I Love it! 🙂 Thank you for making my year(after all, i think i wouldn’t have to restock for at least a year!)!
For everyone not on this list, don’t think that i left you out means i hate you or don’t appreciate you, this list is too long to type it all out. As long as you are in my life, i give thanks for you!
