COOL Summer Vacation!

Youth camp was AWE to the SOME! It was fun, amazing, simply enjoyable. We had a very entertaining yet anointed servant of God, Pastor Nicholas Choo. The theme for this COOL Youth Camp was ID-ME; which means Identify Me. This camp certainly has reached its goal as it helped me to discover myself better and to know that I am God's masterpiece. Ephesians 2:10 says it all- For we are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so that we can do the good things He planned for us long ago. For those who do not know, COOL stands for Christ Our Only Lord.

For now, let the pictures do the talking. Sit back, buckle up your seat belts as the pictures takes you on a journey of the 4 days 3 nights camp at Hotel Seri Malaysia, Malacca. Enjoy~

This is part of the COOL Youth worship team =) the most front girl is Melissa Pang whom left recently for her NS stint. We'll miss her very much... but God has His purpose in sending her there- to be the light and salt for Him!

That's our awesome speaker, Pastor Nicholas Choo praying for us...

One thing God has taught me in this camp was it is not God who has to move to suit himself to my plans and dreams; but rather it is I who has to move forward to align myself to God's plans and dreams or my life.

We did drawings on 2 boxes. One was a box of God's dreams for us.

This is how it looks like. :DD Well... mine was not too nice as I didn't really put in as much effort as some of my friends who made really nice ones. The top right is mine fyi.. haha =)

And one of the best part of the camp was obviously.... the GAMES!

Acting game, station games which comprises of walking in a team with arms locked, each one memorizing Ephesians 2:10, eating apples in pairs, paper stepping game... whatever you call it..., taking out balloons from flour using your mouth, scissors, paper, stone game in a different way.... Might have left out others.. Anyway, recalling all these from my memory through looking back at pictures. =)

Apple eating game :)

Btw, we learnt to make balloon sculpture too. How cool is that?!?! So uber cool!... Well, at least for me. Teehee. Have always wanted to learn that. :)

Balloon sculptures... fyi, Pastor Nicholas uses these balloon sculptures as an aid in preaching. Seriously, every time he does that, all eyes are on him. One interesting way in grabbing our attention. Oh.. he does magic tricks too. And he taught us a few~ Tell me again, how cool is that?! haha.. lol..

And of course, our hang out aka Maggi time... while watching a movie called Christine. On the last night, 16 youths slept in a room meant for 4 ppl. Awesome? lol..

Anyway, I'll end with...

We are Making A Difference for God because we are His masterpiece!

Ephesians 2:10 - For we are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so that we can do the good things He planned for us long ago.
