The Revolution :)

Just got back from a CF Camp themed Revolution. It's a CF Camp organized by SEGi Subang and SEGi Kota Damansara joined in. And yes, had a great time being refreshed, recharged and re-energized there. Words can't explain the simple yet wonderful time of worship, though not a very huge number of ppl but yet genuine fellowship, and most of all, the ever amazing and loving presence of God. Well pics do tell a good story on the whole camp, but unfortunately, no pics for now... Need time to upload. Plus, my laptop's down. =(

I'll talk more bout the camp plus pictures perhaps the next post or next few posts! So how's life ppl? Great? Awesome? Yes?!? Hope everythings going on well for all of you. :)

Though I said I wanna share in the next post or next few on camp, somehow rather I feel the urge to do it now. Okay... So, some of our main objectives of having this camp is:
  • to foster and tighten bonds among SEGi students
  • to provide a healthy option for students to build friendships where NO drugs, alcohols, drugs or even cigarette is involved as campers are not allowed to do these during the duration of the camp
  • challenge students to leave a legacy in the college after they graduate and not to just come to college with a 'tidak apa' attitude.

Again I gently repeat, it's only some of our main objectives. There's more...But these are sufficient here. =p Anyways, we really had great bonding sessions! And I really love the food at the place we stayed- El Sanctuary. More info on the place I stay, you can check it out at http://www.elsanctuary.com/

As aforementioned, the theme for this camp is Revolution which means change. Change through our actions, words and thoughts. We had a down-to-earth and humourous speaker- Elder Kien Yiak, one of the starters of ACTS Church Subang shared with us his life; how God used him and turned him around. From a guy who was once a nobody, an ordinary guy who didn't do well in his studies, to pursuing Accountings course in his higher education (the thing is he doesn't want to attend classes coz he thinks he's smart, so he goes to college just to sit for exams), to making and selling scrumptious carrot-cupcakes with no customers for 2 weeks at a flea market and being rejected by big F&B companies such as San Francisco because he couldn't produce in big quantity and doesn't have a proper kitchen *back then, he made carrot cupcakes from his pastor's house*, to answering the call of God in his life to co-start a church with Pastor Kenneth Chin. And now, just look at the growth of that church! Alongside, he shared alot of funny and lame stuffs that happened to him and that reminded us that he's just like any one of us- weird in our own ways but yet are usable by God.

I have to say I am very blessed and encouraged by this camp! Each and every session in this camp was inspiring and enjoyable at the same time. God's presence, no doubt has been consistently there. I've learnt so many things. 'God has plans for you.' It hitted me so hard just on this sentence alone.

::The main things I learnt in camp::

#1: God has plans for you
#2: Realized that many of us will only do things where we are good, and don't do things where we are not good. But God wants to do so much more in your life. Especially in the areas where we are not good in.
#3: When God says you are good enough, you are good enough.
#4: God has not given us a spirit of fear. Fear does not comes from Him. If fear does not comes from God Himself, then guess who?
#5: Don't settle down so easily. People in this generation tend to give up easily. Don't be discouraged. Be encouraged.
#6: Fire/passion, commitment and discipline are very important if you want to achieve your dreams. When you fall, that's where the discipline comes in to say 'It's okay. I will rise up again.'

I'll stop here for now. At the camp we are constantly reminded that revolution (change) , first begins with us. As the famous quote goes: Be the change you want to see in the world!

p/s: My winning group for games- The Trasformers! And our tagline based on our theme Revolution: Transformers change the world! *Super proud. hehe*

All geared up for campus life! <3
