Go Ron Paul!

I’m not an American, but from what I have seen in the media, Dr. Ron Paul is who I would vote for. Now this is a man of integrity.

The Best Has Come

Got back from Hope Church Camp 2007 (The Best Is Yet To Come…) yesterday evening. We had an amazing 3 days of learning God’s word, encouraging and building each other in the Lord. The best part of all was seeing God touch lives and lives being saved. I had an incredible team (Prime Minister) and we won the crown! However that wasn’t the best part. The most amazing part was that all the non-Christians (there were 3) in my team received salvation in Jesus Christ.

God is amazing, God can soften the hardest of hearts. Prayer is powerful. I never thought it was possible, but through prayer one by one, my team members were saved. Praise God! To see them saved was better than any earthly crown.

Building community (Facebook)

Our youth group (Youthopea) has set up a group on Facebook and here are some of my observations so far:

  1. Youthopea members who have a Facebook account can join and interact with other Youthopea members who they may never have met (or spoken to much) before
  2. Given that most people use Facebook, as leaders we can track how the youth is growing.
  3. We can follow-up on members if they missed a service or if they haven’t been coming for a while.
  4. Members can be informed of current updates, such as the topic of the month and upcoming events.
  5. Members can use the invite function to invite their friends to the group and events that we create.

Exceeding Expectations

It’s a good feeling when we can meet expectations, but it’s so much better when you can exceed them. I went to a buffet dinner about a week ago and one particualr dish had run out and so I inquired, hoping that more was coming. Being a buffet restaurant I expected them to have more coming, because there was still quite a few people around. So they assured me that more was coming soon. What I did not expect was that the girl I had asked would deliver the dish to my table, because normally in these buffet restaurants, you would go up to the food bar and help yourself. It totally exceeded my expectation and my image of the norm at a buffet restaurant.

People build up stereotypes of many things, girls like pink, boys like blue, girls like flowers, boys like cars, supermodels are ignorant, geeks are physically less attractive, nightclubs are full of drug addicts and drunks. Christians are usually stereotyped as self-righteous and legalistic.

Sure some of these may be true, but as a Christian I am not proud to be seen as someone that is self-righteous and legalistic. I have heard of many testimonies where Christians have exceeded expectations – including from my own church. Where members were friendly especially to the newcomers, ushers went the extra mile to help someone in need and many others. Let us always strive to do our best for God and exceed human expectations, after all our God (who is in us) is not human.
