my EASTER break.

The one week break for Easter has ended. Time really flies, I am not fully recovered from the nice break yet, but na..back to reality, life moves on..Just a little update as promised bout my Easter break:) a GREAT one indeed.

Easter Sunday..Jesus is alive! Church celebration was good, with a few brother and sister in Christ were baptised on this day, joy was everywhere:) I believe God is rejoicing with the angels in heaven as well..No wonder the weather that day was so sunny and beautiful! Every wonder why it rains on Good Friday but the sun shines so brightly on Easter Sunday?? Something to think about yea..Anyway, soon after the church service, we headed to Dr Lip's house for a lunch party! Few aunts prepared us(the students) some home cooked meals. We're always so blessed to have them around for good Chinese food! Yum yum...Thankies uncles and aunties for all the good things you guys gave us:)

back to those days..with slides! Herbal eggs:)i's braised lamb:P
And yum yum Korean Noodles!

we had green chicken curry and other stuff...Had a good time of fellowship with the people in church and we played 'Mafia'! What a fun time we had:)

of NEEC(North England Easter Conference)
Basically, it's an annual event, where all people from the Chinese churches from all over North England gathered together in Cefn Lea Park, Wales. The whole camp consisted of 300 candidates, from all walks of life, ranging from toddlers, youths, students, working adults, grandpa and grandma:)

All came with one vision
i.e to experience God:)

theme for this year: Transformed Church, Transforming Church

Big applause to the committee this year from my church itself, who put in so much effort and made this camp a great success!
our camp site..mountains n hills=COLD!and LOADS of sheep!

us on TOP of the hill after playing hide n seek with the sheep!met Troy, the Liverpool representative!
the place i! It's freezing cold! 6 of us squeezed at the living room instead of sleeping in the rooms because the only place with heater is the living room!
Quite nice tho the caravan:)
We had hog roast for lunch one day..It was amazing!
We've gone a bit 'kuku' during the long queue for our hog roast!
MCCC student fellowship

my reflections:
i didnt go with much expectations as it was my first time going such conference. However it was a refreshing time spent with God and His people. When all Christians came together and worship Him, sharing testimonies of how great this God is, i was overwhelmed and be reminded about His faithfulness in my life. I could remember in one of the session, when the speaker asked us to say a word of encouragement to the person sitting next to us. We're supposed to ask God what he wanted us to say...And when Jo told me to be courageous and not fear of failure, I could sense that it's His voice instead. I've always focused on all the possible bad outcomes and my mind is always occupied with loads of 'what if' questions. My worry of my future has never decrease. And it seems, God is whispering to me that I need not feel such stress because once i anchor my trust in Him, i'm in safe hands. Quoting from WeeLeon(one of the speaker), we're unclear about our future, but we are certain about our destiny, which is being eternally with God. In this camp, God has saved the lost, healed the broken hearts and touched the hearts of the weary. No regrets going for this camp at all!

of Joel's big day!
SF threw a surprise party for this brother of ours the day after NEEC!
Happy 20th Birthday Joel!
Lily and I were appointed the main chefs of the nights. These were the food we prepared:

Minced pork with noodle, onion rings, sausages, fried eggs and cauliflower with carrots!

A simple meal*_*

the scary creature that made gurls SCREAMED~
even Leonard is scared?!?

and the place turned to a poker centre!

start praying for SF:Pwe had a good time of makan n playing!

God bless..

wasSup Doc:
There is an Arm that never tires
When human strength gives way;
There is a Love that never fails
When earthly loves decay..

thank you Lord,
for the COURAGE You've given, for me to move on
