I received a belated birthday present!
I was telling auntie Audrey, “A night boating down in the Selangor River and the next night spent in the Palace. Palace of the Golden Horses, that is.” The leaders from various ministries met together for a 1 nighter to discuss on ministry matters. Not entirely a working retreat but more on Fellowship and Discussion.
Before going off to the hotel, that morning, I was shooting some photos for these cute little ones.
What most of us bring home is that, ministry is always about people. Everything we do will one way or another linked to people even if you are in the IT ministry. And people being people will be difficult to manage and it will be normal to have relational issues sometimes. As ministry leaders, we got to be aware of this and will a intimate relationship vertically with our Lord, we will learn to see horizontally each individual as unique and loved in God’s eyes.
Secondly, do not underestimate mamak sessions or sharing a meal. There are values there that cannot be quantify. So do it more often with people in your ministry.
Apart from that, rooms were nice and it was a good rest.
It was an Agape Young People’s outing. Brought the youths to Kuala Selangor to watch the fireflies before they go to extinction. Of course, when we were there, had some seafood at Restaurant Jeti.
I think I took the wrong way back. Have to go through dark trunk roads and reached Rawang which is the longer way. But we had fun. I am happy to see many new faces. Hope to see your faces soon.
Went to Jason Mraz concert yesterday evening at Stadium Negara.
One day, I asked Pek Zhan a question, then she asked me sarcastically(I thought), “You wanna go fly kite?” When I reconfirmed, she literally invited me to go fly kite with them. So, here we are, Integricitizens with some friends went to this big field in Selayang to fly kite. It was fun!
Shane came and join us for fun too. He kept laughing when he held the string as the kite flew in the sky. Then he actually kept looking back at his mommy and daddy trying to tell them that he was flying a kite.
How to get there? Just drive along LDP from PJ to Kepong. After the toll, use the fly-over. As you approach Batu Caves, stop taking the fly-over, instead, keep to your left lane and drive into a roundabout. Take a 6 o’clock turn(U-turn lah). About 1km after that, you will see the park on your left after the Shell Petrol station. You won’t miss it as you will be able to see many kites flying in the sky.
Thanks Pek Zhan and Follen for organizing this. It was fun!
The whole Saturday was practically spent on a workshop on Inductive Bible Study – How to do it.
As some of you know, Aaron Tan and Yip Wei have both become dadda and mama about 6 – 7 weeks ago. Being proud parents, they threw a party to celebrate life for baby Joshua. This is one way big celebration for a baby’s full moon. That’s what happened when you have a dad who works in the hotel line.
Welcome to our world, Baby Joshua….
Your GF loves you if she goes to KFC with you for dinner on a Valentine’s Day. Well, we did see a few good girlfriends around when we arrived at KFC. There was this girl who dressed up so nicely and her bf only clad in a pair of long pants and slippers. Poor girl, she must be darn devastated. Haha… However, my GFs had fun!
