the little things he did............

Chester and Clarence Tai are leaving today for New Zealand.

For those who don't know, Chester and Clarence are my church members, and the reason why they are migrating is becuz the entire family is goin. I think it's summin about the mom having a job transfer.

Anyway, this is isn't about why and stuff. This is a little post to say thank you to Chester, for everything he has done.

Chester showed me that the little things you do will sometimes do a lot for someone. Well, the someone being me. I'm quite quiet in church, and not many ppl come and take much notice. That's mostly my fault because I can't make it for the youth group (drat them piano lessons), and I don't exactly open my mouth to get new friends. Heh.

Anyway, Chester was one of the guys who reached out to me. I mean, he didn't start talking and talking like crazy to me, frankly I probably wouldn't like that. But whenever he saw me, he said hi, and whenever I helped him in the OHP, he would thank me later. And somehow, those small gestures really touched me, and made me feel that I wasn't going about unnoticed.

Chester's also someone who was serious about his faith, and yet fun to be around with. In many ways, he set an example for me and became one of my role models.

Clarence. Well, I don't know him too well, because he is way younger than me; but I can see he's really dedicated and has a lot of potential.

I hope and pray that these two will continue to walk in the Lord, and be a blessing to others.

Chester, whether you see this or not, I'd just like to say thanks a lot, everything you did for me, every small gesture, meant a lot to me.

d'NA

I've finally gathered me thots about my camp, and all I can say is that is I try to give you a report on my amazing experience, I will be indulging myself in those memories, and in the process, bore you to tears. All I can say is, I'm so glad I listen to God's call and went for it, despite being alone, I've learnt so much, in so many ways.

(For those of you who don't know, d'NA stands for the D'Nous Academy. Nous means heart, mind and soul in Greek. )

Anyways, I didn't feel lonely at all while I was there, and I met quite a few crazy people, so I'm not the only mad one around, yay! However, they're all so intelligent and mature, I feel like a 6 year old hanging around with some working young adults!!(who are a bit cracked in the head.)
But in many ways, they're all, well, kindred spirits, in a sense. And the camp officers are really fun and they don't mind me asking questions at all.

Actually, I'm not quite sure what else to say about this camp, not becuz it was boring or anything like that, in fact it was so enriching and fulfilling it'll take a very long time for me to actually finish saying everything, and there are things that somehow just can't be said. I really felt touched by God there, and I gained a lot of knowledge. And every time a lesson is over, there's this nudging in me, asking me the same question, again and again:

How then should I live?

After all the knowledge, experience, and all the amazing things I've received, how am I going to live after that? My life cannot just go back to the same thing. There has to be a change somewhere. I've definitely been renewed, but what am I to do about that now?

I guess I have to live out what I've learnt, and give out what I've received. Hmmmm......it's not going to be easy at all, in fact it will be very difficult, but I have to do my best.

Getting theological, am I not? Ha, this camp has got me thinking a lot, besides having fun.
Anyways, I'll put up a photo album of the camp after Christmas, going to be real busy these days.

I thought of putting up a Christmas's wish list, but I don't find it worth it. I didn't get you guys anything. Besides, I'll probably get a lot from the relatives and my family. And I've already received the greatest gift of Christmas - Christ Himself.

Getting theological again, am I not?

Blessed CHRISTmas to all of you out there! May you never forget the true reason for the season!!
