I would like to thank all of you friends, who have been faithfully pray for me, support me or even just be friend with me. I'm totally grateful. Year 2006 is really amazing to me. I spent 1st half of the year with Go Fest Asia. I've witnessed the zeal of the Lord who accomplished the purpose of Singapore being gateway for the world to come into Asia. Truly, this is Antioch of Asia. God uses YWAM Singapore in such a miraculous way. We've seen His faithfulness in terms of how He put together this conference, finances, manpower with expertises, delegates from 28 countries of 5 continents and after all, His sweet presence that dwell among us. Truly, God's heart cry for Asia has been made known to many hearts. I'm so thrill to be part of this thing and looking forward for the next conference in year 2008, also I would like to have an opportunity to share with you more on that as well as inviting you to come and join us for GFA 2008!! Yepz....
From August onward, I started serving in church as a Youth worship ministry leader. It's truly privilege to serve this young people of Singapore. It's challenging. But I do have a great bunch of guys and gals that truly love God and passionate about His name. I learnt a lot by serving together with them. =) I'm so proud of you guys....and really looking forward to more of God's excitement among us in the coming year.
Yeah, I did mentioned that I'm going home next week. I'll having a youth mission team from my church with me as well for about a week to spend Christmas with the Thai students. Also Joy, my galfriend will be leading the team with me as well. So do pray for us. More than that, she will also spending time with my family and meeting my friends and supporters for the following 2 weeks after the team is back in Singapore. So I do need your prayer for the Lord's favour upon us indeed.
Next year 2007 is just gonna be great. I can't wait any longer. I will slowly share with you guys more on that. I also decide that I will post my update more often on my blog right here, so do pop by sometimes.
Thanks for your prayer and support all these years. I'm truly been blessed. Really from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU FOR BELIEVING IN ME. I will never do whatever that I do unless God is with me as well as your friendship too. Khop Khun Krab. =)
Christmas just around the corner, let's celebrate the coming of the King and tell the world that Christ loves them. Merry Christmas.
Celebrate the truly meaning of Christmas......JESUS.....the jewel of Christmas.

Somebody just blessed me with some finance, after that my colleague asked me if I would like to go to Myanmar this January. Look at my finance and my schedule next year. I said YES!!!
Finally, I'm going!! Myanmar here I come..so ya right after my trip home, I would be heading to Myanmar for a week. So I would greatly appreciate all of your prayer and support as I go to Myanmar this time round, it would be an opening eyes trip for me to touch the heart of God for the Burmese and also seek for an opportunity to serve Myanmar. So that Myanmar may be filled with God's glory.

I will not be afraidI was just crying and crying....God really touched me....thanks Bob, it really blessed me...
I will not be afraid
I will not be afraid O Lord
For Your love washes away my fears
For Your love washes away my fears
Your love overwhelmed me, completely surrounds me
You go before me, You make away and
You are my strength my courage my fortress and
I will not be afraid Your love melts my fear away
Where can I go that Your love won't be there
Where can I run that You won't find me
For Your love washes away my fear
For Your love washes away my fear
Then after that, David Garratt, old time worship leader and song writer of Scripture In Songs Ministries coming over to speak in School Of Worship. So I was sittting in the class....never regret.. =)
I simply re-learning worship again and again. I start to re-think why we do what we do in worship in the church today...but what draws my attention most would be the whole indigenous worship that he has been working on for many years.. To see all people from different tribes, languages and cultures bring whatever that represent there own group to worship God. It really brought me to the greater understanding of what Rev.7:9 was talking about. I don't think God really want all of us to sing hymns or CCMs in heaven ONLY right? =)
And yeah....just last weekend, Casting Crowns was here!!!! I actually knew about it in the afternoon just couple hours before the 1st show... So I managed to go for the 2nd show on Friday night. It was very interesting that Casting Crowns is really simply a group of ministers of God that ministering to people through music. They write songs to preach to people basically. It's real impacted to many life of the people who hear their song!! So Mark, I just want to say Thanks!!! you have been such a role model to me. I want to do exactly what you do..
"Let my lifesong sing to you Lord!!!"
Time fly....next week I will be heading home!!!!yeah!!! Can't really wait...and yes...I will try to send you an update as well as Christmas card to all of you soon. =)
Hope to see ya all soon enough =)

Worship Leading is all about serving others to worship God. All that we do is to point people towards God. Not ourselves. Whoever trying to share the limelight with God....will not even close to the true idea of worship. And yes, that's robbing the Glory of God!
I worship because I love my Lord,
I lead worship because I love my people,
How good it is for brothers and sisters go ahead and worship the Lord together.
It's all about you Jesus!!! The heart....the Jewel of Worship.

Umm...If I kinda answer this question then I would probably know which direction to turn into.... But it seems so impossible Lord, I asked...
"Well...nothing is Impossible with me"

"only believe" "Don't you trust me son..."
Ya....ya i do i do....but this time...it so many thing Lord.... one thing I wanna pursue my dream...another thing I want to prove if I'm capable to do it.... and lots of thing I realy wanted to do Lord...
"My food, is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work."
ok.... that's my food too...so i will simply ask you to guide me Lord....I want to do Your will....I don't want to please myself anymore....I guess I will seek you and would you open the door for me.....let my dream be Your dream....let my passion be your passion Lord...I pray....
"Delight yourself in ME.....and I will give you the desire of your heart.....My desire shall be yours...Trust me son....I am who I am.....by the way...doyou know how to spell my name...?? Gee-Oh-Dee right?"
Ya.....you're right.... =)

As some of you know....I have been leading worship in different places...in church, in ywam, some other Christian gatherings..(if they asked me to) I started to pondering over the life of worship leader... Especially now that I'm sought of person in-charge of Worship ministry in my Youth church. I even have a deeper thoughts on what it means to be a worship leader....these are some of those thoughts...
God is looking for those people who will worship Him in Spirit & in Truth. (John 4:23-24) that simply mean....worshipping God must engaging with the Holy Spirit of God, He is the director of worship....neither the pastor nor worship leader but the Holy Spirit Himself is the one who lead us in worship the Almighty God.
I love what Chris Tomlin called himself in church...(he is a worship pastor of the church in Austin, TX) He is a lead worshipper not a worship leader....so true....when we lead worship, we ourselves need to be in the place of worship first...as the Holy spirit leads you, then you usher the congregation to join you enter into His court.
I learn to develop my worship lifestyle by just spend sometime everyday (if possible) to just be alone with God reading scriptures, grab my guitar and play some songs, just to worship Him..(it may not necessary to use guitar or any instrument at all...just worship the Lord as who you really are..) Also be watchful in all my being...my attitude towards people, etc....cuz' worship isn't just about music but it's all about our whole being...live our lives to glorify God!!! dwell in his presence at all time...
The more you learn to be in the presence of God, then you're able to usher others into His presence.... it's really about our relationship with the Father.... i remember one time when Tamara Winslow was on the keyboard and just start singing some unfamiliar song....suddenly i just fall flat!! couldn't contain....the strong Presence of God just fall in that place....it's amazing...
Another point beside worshipping in the spirit is to be in the Truth of God....
Knowing the truth is somewhat really missing in our churches today....many of people who named themselves Christian aren't really know or understand what Christianity is all about... Who is Jesus? What about His character...??? Many Christians hardly know....It really sad but true....even myself, it takes me till the 6th year of my walk with God that I truly found the understanding of who God is and that I can have a deeper intimacy with Him if I will...the more I learn about the truth of God, my perspective about life changes...and it express out in the way I live my life for Him. When you experience what it means that God is good...whenever you sing the song that talks about the goodness of God it will indeed so real in your life...and that makes your worship become a real expression of your heart to God.
I remember, just listening to the song called "It is well with my soul" by Brenton brown, I suddenly just start crying...all my hard time memories just recalled back to my mind...and i found it's true that "whatever my lots, You've thought me to know...it is well, it is well with my soul!!" Praise God! "Your yoke is easy, Your yoke is light" =)
I love singing, that's why I enjoy singing to God, i started do some song writing couple years ago...it mainly just help me to express my response to God in worship.....and hopefully somehow it will be a blessing to other people as well... i haven't really get any song done in proper recording yet...so hopefully will be a chance to share with you all soon...bear with a perfectionist like me haha.... =D
Yepz...Worship leading is never about us.....the limelight it should and MUST always be on God who we sing praise to....Cuz' all the glory are worthy of Him who is GREAT, MIGHTY and AWESOME!! there's no other but GOD is worthy to be praised.....AMEN!!
We are all learning....let's learn together...
Your lead worshipper...

Yes...today is like my 3rd anniversary since I join YWAM Singapore as a full time staff. It have been an amazing journey with Father God...it was fun, interesting, hard and challenging..but yet...I could say "God is good ALL the time" Especially this year has been the most amazing year....Go Fest and all that God is doing in Asia...just stand in awe when you get to be part of the bigger picture that God is doing in the world, Asia...through Singapore..through YWAM and through me. I totally convinced that now is ASIA time!! to take on the baton' from other generation to carry on the unfinished work from East to West....back to where it all started....
Ok! here some of my update.... =)
Yepz....after Go Fest...now I still can't believe that I'm very busy from one thing to another. yeah...though the conference went really well and heard lots of great testimonies out of the conference...but we still have to do a follow up work and also getting ourselves ready for the next wave in 2008 (more info to come) so as I prayed...I finally decided not to go away from Singapore (just not yet) I was planning to go away some where to take other courses....but I don't think it's a right time for me then...so I'm staying.. rather I make up my mind to be involve in local church here even more... as I tested the water for quite some times.... Now I really get into it... I'm currently helping out in Youth Worship and Music Ministry in PLMC to provide a spiritual mentoring and equipping the youth who serve in worship ministry to grow spiritually as well as skillfully...to be true worshipper for God first before leading others to worship. It isn't easy task...but I think it quite challenging and it's in my very heart to impart the passion for worhipping God into young people of next generation. So pray for me as well....I'm a rookie here...need lots of prayer from you guys.... Thank you!
Back in YWAM office, I carry on in Go centre (mobilisation team) doing mission mobilisation among the churches here in Singapore. Leading short term teams, training and stuffs.. also I need to work on communication side for the office as well, which is all the websites which now we are expanding our ministry...so as our website...yeah...busy again....
I'm expecting to go to Myanmar for a week in October..still in the process of setting up the team with the local church. it would be another accomplishment of mine since Myanmar is the only country remain in Mekong region which I never get into yet. So do pray for me as well that the Lord will open door for me this time round. (It's my 2nd attempt to Myanmar since last year)
About us.... =)
My relationship with Joy has been good...(I mean it's GREAT!) We getting to know each other pretty much, we share our joys, struggles and challenges together. I know it's still a long journey for both of us....but yeah...I'm excited. Recently she just graduated from NUS. Now she's taking temporary job as she's still waiting to do an internship with church. So pray for her as well would be greatly appreciate. I also managed to had dinner with her family on Singapore National day (Aug 9th) so it was a breakthrough for me somehow...at least i know they didn't reject me. It truly the favour from the Lord...Thank papa God!!
Also this year end, we are planning to bring her cell group over to Chiang Mai for mission exposure trip. So it would be an opportunity for me to introduce her properly to my family, friends and supporters back in Thailand. So do pray for us as well...
Lastly, I just want to appreciate all of you friends....who have been faithfully in prayer and supporting me to continue doing what I am doing here all these years... Thank You!!! i can't wait to meet you guys in person and say Thank YOU!!! really....from the depths of my heart.
I also want to take this opportunity to invite all of you to consider supporting me in terms of Finance as well...as most lof you knew that I serve in YWAM on voluntary basis without salary. So I do need regular support for my daily needs as well as ministry purpose. So I would like to invite you to pray and ask the Lord if you could be part of my financial supporter that would be great...but no worry if you couldn't effort to do that....just your prayer for me each day simply make my day awesome!!!
Just want to share something very personal here...that living in Singapore never been easy for me...as some of you know...the cost of living here it so much expensive from where I came from..there are times when I just don't have enough money for just to buy food or taking a bus. But God is still so good....His kindness has been showed to me in different ways...many lessons I learnt from Him in such a time as these....I'm grateful....also at the back my minds...I always know that soembody pray for me....i could sense it....and that's what keep me going on serving the Lord....i know I'm doing what God wants me to do...and that drives me... "PURPOSE" without God's grace I most probably no where....no one... Thank you Lord!!!
So.....for your sake...I will summarize my prayer request for you ya!
1. For my walk with God that will always strong and healthy despite all busyness.
2. For my ministries, in Youth worship ministry of the church and in YWAM Singapore.
3. For the possible trip to Myanmar in October as well as trip home to Chiang Mai with my girlfriend.
4. For our relationships that will truly honouring God and set an example to others.
5. For God's provision in my life.....I do need about S$800/month to survive here.
6. For salvation of my family back in Thailand. I believe as I serve the Lord faithfully, He will honours me by taking care of my family back home.
Till Asia is filled with God's Glory!
2 Timothy 2 (NIV)
1You then, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. 2And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable men who will also be qualified to teach others. 3Endure hardship with us like a good soldier of Christ Jesus. 4No one serving as a soldier gets involved in civilian affairs—he wants to please his commanding officer. 5Similarly, if anyone competes as an athlete, he does not receive the victor's crown unless he competes according to the rules. 6The hardworking farmer should be the first to receive a share of the crops. 7Reflect on what I am saying, for the Lord will give you insight into all this.
8Remember Jesus Christ, raised from the dead, descended from David. This is my gospel, 9for which I am suffering even to the point of being chained like a criminal. But God's word is not chained. 10Therefore I endure everything for the sake of the elect, that they too may obtain the salvation that is in Christ Jesus, with eternal glory.
11Here is a trustworthy saying:
If we died with him,
we will also live with him;
12if we endure,
we will also reign with him.
If we disown him,
he will also disown us;
13if we are faithless,
he will remain faithful,
for he cannot disown himself.

Talk about my Mom and I, it has been a long journey. Many people would not understand how hard it was for me to have a mom that not quite normal as other moms out there. My mom has suffered from some sort of mental illness which make her behaviour really weird and sometime hard to handle with. Her world is just what she's seen in the past, those memory that she hold it dear and never let go as the time go on. She only believe in what she saw...can you imagine? Even my dad has passed away formany good years...until today she still don't believe it! Instead, she took it as my dad has left us.....of course it's quite true...yeah in the sense he left us....forever from the face of the earth....
Now I have to tell you this....She has been like this since I was born....(I guess even long before I was born) So to grow in this kind of relationship that I have with my mom was really hard. I couldn't know how to handle her, how to show her I love her and care for her. Instead, I felt so irritated, disturbed bu her behaviour, worse of the worse I felt so ashame of having a mom like this. Sad to say but it's true...
Now I'm 25 year of age. I've been grown...a changed man...My papa God had dealed with all this issues in my life....now I learned to love her no matter what...I forgave her for what she's done to me in the past and I asked her for forgiveness. Even as I type this thing I'm thinking to myself, God is so good....though the enemy tried to destroy me via my family but it didn't work! My God has protected me all these years...He shapes my character to be strong, be patient and loving no matter what...My God is indeed so good. Though I live in the foreign land, far away from home. But my love will go beyond all the boundaries and reach to my mom's heart. I can't wait to see her once again..really...
I love you Mom....
Happy Mother's day everyone....

Sometimes it's hard, sometimes i cry
Sometimes my heart wants to know why?
But your yoke is easy and your burden is light
And though my heart is aching and there're tears in my eyes
Whatever my lot, you have taught me to know
It is well, it is well with my soul
it's not always easy, i'm not always right
sometimes i do things that are wrong in your sight
but i have decided i'm going to follow jesus
and there's no turning back, there's no turning back
Whatever my lot, you have taught me to know
It is well, it is well with my soul
You have reached down to me, you have rescued me
and have shed your blood for my soul
And i live now knowing that the sky and not the grave will be my goal
And just as in life, also in death this truth will comfort and console
that soon i will see your face and hear your voice and know that it is well. . .
Whatever my lot, you have taught me to know
It is well, it is well with my soul
But please hold my hand Lord and hold on tight
'Cause the road here is narrow...

"I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinedresser. Every branch of mine that does not bear fruit he takes away, and every branch that does bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear more fruit. Already you are clean because of the word that I have spoken to you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in me he is thrown away like a branch and withers; and the branches are gathered, thrown into the fire, and burned. If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be my disciples. As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father's commandments and abide in his love. These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full. "
I was meditated on the scripture which consider one of the most favourite quote. John 15... I'm pretty sure most of you who read the Bible will know right away what story I'm referring to..
Well...I read this passage many many times, but this time round I recieve a new light. (Thanks to the wonderful ESV Bible that not just full of beautiful word but meaningful as well)
As I read this passage, I'm always reminded that I can't do everything by myself...cuz' I have lots of limitations. But Christ hasn't. Phil.4:13 said "I can DO ALL THINGS through Christ who strengthen me." so in John 15, Jesus illustrated the picture of us as a disciple are the branches that need to connect to the vine which is referring to Christ Himself, if you've seen real vineyard before you would probably know what I mean. The vine in some sense acts as a source of nourishment to the branches so that I can bear a grape. In the same way, for us in order to live the life that bear much fruit for the kingdom of God, we need to abide, connect with the vine which is Jesus Christ Himself. How wonderful it is when Jesus invites us...."Come, abide in my love!!" His love is everylasting love, he's always love us and be there for us no matter what. the question is....are we choosing to abide in Christ's love? Sometimes we did not...what a sad story..
Talk about love...nowaday Love is somehow has become cliche', many people use this word without meaning it. We tend to replace the word "LUST" with "LOVE" as you can see from Hollywood shows and even your folks who live next door.
I was reminded of this guy, he's a stand alone comedian back in Thailand, once he told the story of a man who loves his car so much, but yet he never wash his beloved car!! True love must translate into action...if you love your car then wash it, care for it. If you love someone, you will show him/her in anyway that as most romantic as you can just to express your love for the person. Also the same as loving God. We need to put in action....no more talking about loving God but live it out!!
the last thing I've learned and it's so encouraging to me is this....that as long as we are the branches in the vineyard. We are still under good hands of the vinedresser. No matter how bad shape we are or not bear fruit at all, the vinedresser will do His best to cut, to prune the branch so that it could somehow bear fruit. Guess what, we have a great vinedresser which is God the Father Himself who would always taking care of you and do His best to help us dwell in His love and bear much fruit for his Kingdom, and by doing that His joy may be in us and that our joy may be full!!!
Remember the Vinedresser...He will never leave you alone... =)

I sat, with two friends, in the picture window of a quaint restaurant just off the corner of the town-square. The food and the company were both especially good that day.
As we talked, my attention was drawn outside, across the street. There, walking into town, was a man who appeared to be carrying all his worldly goods on his back. He was carrying, a well-worn sign that read, "I will work for food." My heart sank.
I brought him to the attention of my friends and noticed that others around us had stopped eating to focus on him. Heads moved in a mixture of sadness and disbelief.
We continued with our meal, but his image lingered in my mind. We finished our meal and went our separate ways. I had errands to do and quickly set out to accomplish them. I glanced toward the town square, looking somewhat halfheartedly for the strange visitor. I was fearful, knowing that seeing him again would call some response. I drove through town and saw nothing of him. I made some purchases at a store and got back in my car.
Deep within me, the Spirit of God kept speaking to me: "Don't go back to the office until you've at least driven once more around the square."
Then with some hesitancy, I headed back into town. As I turned the square's third corner, I saw him. He was standing on the steps of the store front church, going through his sack.
I stopped and looked; feeling both compelled to speak to him, yet wanting to drive on. The empty parking space on the corner seemed to be a sign from God: an invitation to park. I pulled in, got out and approached the town's newest visitor.
"Looking for the pastor?" I asked.
"Not really," he replied, "just resting."
"Have you eaten today?"
"Oh, I ate something early this morning."
"Would you like to have lunch with me?"
"Do you have some work I could do for you?"
"No work," I replied. "I commute here to work from the city, but I would like to take you to lunch."
"Sure," he replied with a smile.
As he began to gather his things, I asked some surface questions.
Where you headed?"
"Where you from?"
"Oh, all over; mostly Florida."
"How long you been walking?"
"Fourteen years," came the reply.
I knew I had met someone unusual. We sat across from each other in the same restaurant I had left earlier. His face was weathered slightly beyond his 38 years. His eyes were dark yet clear, and he spoke with an eloquence and articulation that was startling. He removed his jacket to reveal a bright red T-shirt that said, "Jesus is The Never Ending Story."
Then Daniel's story began to unfold. He had seen rough times early in life. He'd made some wrong choices and reaped the consequences.
Fourteen years earlier, while backpacking across the country, he had stopped on the beach in Daytona. He tried to hire on with some men who were putting up a large tent and some equipment. A concert, he thought.
He was hired, but the tent would not house a concert but revival services, and in those services he saw life more clearly. He gave his life over to God
"Nothing's been the same since," he said, "I felt the Lord telling me to keep walking, and so I did, some 14 years now."
"Ever think of stopping?" I asked.
"Oh, once in a while, when it seems to get the best of me But God has given me this calling. I give out Bibles. That's what's in my sack. I work to buy food and Bibles, and I give them out when His Spirit leads."
I sat amazed. My homeless friend was not homeless. He was on a mission and lived this way by choice. The question burned inside for a moment and then I asked: "What's it like?"
"To walk into a town carrying all your things on your back and to show your sign?"
"Oh, it was humiliating at first. People would stare and make comments. Once someone tossed a piece of half-eaten bread and made a gesture that certainly didn't make me feel welcome. But then it became humbling to realize that God was using me to touch lives and change people's concepts of other folks like me."
My concept was changing, too. We finished our dessert and gathered his things. Just outside the door, he paused. He turned to me and said,
"Come Ye blessed of my Father and inherit the kingdom I've prepared for you. For when I was hungry you gave me food, when I was thirsty you gave me drink, a stranger and you took me in."
I felt as if we were on holy ground. "Could you use another Bible?"
He said he preferred a certain translation. It traveled well and was not too heavy. It was also his personal favorite. "I've read through it 14times," he said.
"I'm not sure we've got one of those, but let's stop by our church and see" I was able to find my new friend a Bible that would do well, and he seemed very grateful.
"Where are you headed from here?" I asked.
"Well, I found this little map on the back of this amusement park coupon."
"Are you hoping to hire on there for awhile?"
"No, I just figure I should go there. I figure someone under that star right there needs a Bible, so that's where I'm going next."
He smiled, and the warmth of his spirit radiated the sincerity of his mission. I drove him back to the town-square where we'd met two hours earlier, and as we drove, it started raining. We parked and unloaded his things.
"Would you sign my autograph book?" he asked. "I like to keep messages from folks I meet."
I wrote in his little book that his commitment to his calling had touched my life. I encouraged him to stay strong. And I left him with a verse of scripture from Jeremiah, "I know the plans I have for you, declared the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you; Plans to give you a future and a hope."
"Thanks, man," he said. "I know we just met and we're really just strangers, but I love you."
"I know," I said, "I love you, too." "The Lord is good!"
"Yes, He is. How long has it been since someone hugged you?" I asked.
"A long time," he replied
And so on the busy street corner in the drizzling rain, my new friend and I embraced, and I felt deep inside that I had been changed. He put his things on his back, smiled his winning smile and said, "See you in the New Jerusalem."
"I'll be there!" was my reply.
He began his journey again. He headed away with his sign dangling from his bedroll and pack of Bibles. He stopped, turned and said, "When you see something that makes you think of me, will you pray for me?"
"You bet," I shouted back, "God bless."
"God bless." And that was the last I saw of him.
Late that evening as I left my office, the wind blew strong. The cold front had settled hard upon the town. I bundled up and hurried to my car. As I sat back and reached for the emergency brake, I saw them... a pair of well-worn brown work gloves neatly laid over the length of the handle. I picked them up and thought of my friend and wondered if his hands would stay warm that night without them.
Then I remembered his words: "If you see something that makes you think of me, will you pray for me?"
Today his gloves lie on my desk in my office. They help me to see the world and its people in a new way, and they help me remember those two hours with my unique friend and to pray for his ministry. "See you in the New Jerusalem," he said. Yes, Daniel, I know I will...
"I shall pass this way but once. Therefore, any good that I can do or any kindness that I can show, let me do it now, for I shall not pass this way again."

Though Go Fest Asia conference has passed but yet it just a new beginning of Asia to enter into this journey with the Lord to see Her people come and worship the Lord most high. It was awesome experience for all of us especially the organizing team. It just so awesome to working with a group of international team whom we weren't really know each other much but only one thing we have in common is to serve the Lord and the people of Asia and that's what motivate us and unite us together as a team. Even til today many lives have been impacted by the move of God throughout this conference and many teams still out there in different countries of Asia basically just to be the hands and feet of Christ to the Asians.
From the bottom of my heart, I would like to give thanks for those who have served together with us in any way for Go Fest, who prayed for us and who support us in whatever ways you could. THANK YOU! The Lord surely will bless you as you walk in humbly obedient with Jesus.
For me personally, it's just a beginning of the new chapter. The amazing story of what God is going to do in Asia through Singapore and beyond. I'm praying about what God is leading me to right now as a next step to equipping myself for my journey ahead. If you happen to read this, do pray for me as well.
I knew I have been so busy until don't really have time to write an update, may be I should do blogging update instead......Keep reading on..... Oh...by the way, I'll hit the road again to Brunei from 21st-28th June. So remember me in your prayer as well. I'm quite excited to go there really...

For my dear colleagues, they will know that on the 1st of May I saw this monitor lizard haha....
What happen was that I went out to had my favorite Dumpling Noodle at Geylang Lor 12 for lunch. Since it was just a quick lunch so I didnt bring my phone out....then while I sat down there having my noodle suddenly!! I saw this big creepy creature slowly crawling right beside me...then I got a shock!! It crawling towards me..!!!! Thank goodness, out of no where, this fellow Indian worker just happen to walk right out and cut in between myself and the lizard, so it got a shock and run away down to the drain (which I guess where it came out from)....I wasn't bring phone out, so I can't take a snap and tell you how funny it was to see such thing right in the middle of town....
Then today I saw this column on the paper....my mind was thinking......I should have caught it and report to the police....so i will be on the Newspaper haha =) never mind.... =P

When the warm "south wind" with its soothing and balmy breezes brings showers of blessing, God is love. "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above" (James 1:17).
When the cold "north wind" of trial and testing sweeps down upon you, God is love. "All things work together for good to those who love God" (Romans 8:28).
When the "west wind" blows hard upon you with its punishing intent, God is love. "Whom the Lord loves He chastens" (Hebrews 12:6).
When the "east wind" threatens to sweep away all that you have, God is love. "God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory" (Philippians 4:19).
Perhaps you are discouraged and downhearted. If so, remember, God still cares for you. What you are experiencing has either been sent or it has been allowed by Him for your good.
Yes, no matter which way the wind is blowing, God is love. —Richard De Haan------

"You will take a risk for something you care about!"
It has been a long while since I blog some Movie review, It doesn't mean that I have not been watching a movie though, in fact lots of movies that I went to watch in the past few month. Anyway "Eight Below" is one of the recent one that touched my heart very much. It wasn't just because it's about this Siberian Huskie dogs (though they're very cute!!! =]) But I think the story really inspiring. Based on the true story about U.S. Antarctica Explorer team that have to moved out from the station because of heavy snow storm and they have to left 8 faithful hard-working dogs behind. The whole pursuit of Jerry Shepherd the owner of the dogs to try everything to go and get them back home is really interesting and challenging. More than that it took about 6 months until he got back to Antarctica to pick those dogs back home. By that time 2 dogs had died and 1 badly injured. I think the quote above that Jerry said in the show touched me. Indeed We will do everything even if we have to take a risky path to do something for someone we care about.
In the same way, Christ Himself has taken every risk to pursuing us. It costs His life to bring us back to have a relationship with God once again. How much He loves us? No doubt....VERY much.
If the story of one man who cares so much about his dogs could inspiring the world and make a great story, how much more the story of one man who cares about all mankind to be saved can make far better impact to each individual lives on earth. Brothers and Sisters, we got a GREATEST story to tell the world!!!
"Tell the world that Jesus Lives!! tell the world that He died for me!! tell the world that...tell the world that!!

Well....again my point is not to accuse those who use the term Easter Sunday...It really doesn't matter what you call it. But what you do with it that's matter. Are you still living in the old life that find no light and hope? Jesus alone can give you such hope and life you only can imagine. The death on the cross is meant not just for you and I but for ALL mankind... It would be too cheap if Jesus died just for me. It's really not that cheap...He paid the costly price so that ALL men will come to experience the freedom in Him. So as to speak to fellow believers...Let's go out there and tell the world that Jesus Lives!!! Share with them...and bring them to light!! Don't let the death of Christ too cheap than what it meant to be..
Have a blessed RESURRECTION DAY!

Well even though last Friday, no one called me up...I still keep on persisting and believing that it already mine! Finally this Morning my friend called me. He just came back from China this morning, He got my stuff from there!!! Wow....what an amazing thing to hear. After one month of no screen...I was desperate to be honest....but thank God...He is Faithful. I need not to be worry about anything cuz' everything is in good hand. Just only believe!...

Last night I had a wonderful B'day dinner with my galfriend. I thank God for her. I never had such a wonderful B'day celebration as this year. Ya...I'm totally blessed. He blessed us so that we could be a blessing to others....Remember folks....whatever things might happen in your journey with Him...He is faithful will bring you through the valley all the way up to the top of the mountain, where you will see the Glory of God.....
The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
he restores my soul.
He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
Psalm 23 The Holy Bible (NIV)

No bones about it, you're an energetic, devoted Chihuahua. For your breed, size definitely doesn't matter. After all, sometimes the best things (diamonds, car keys, Godiva truffles) come in small packages. Honest and straightforward, you're never afraid to speak up for what you believe in, especially if it's a cause near and dear to your heart. Having such a passionate personality can come with a few drawbacks, though. You can be moody at times, and people often find it hard to live up to your high standards. But once you make a friend, it's for life. Saucy and intense, your energy and unfailing loyalty make you a great companion. Woof!
hehe...I can't believe..I'm a Chihuahua....anyway....hehe just for fun...if u want to know what breed are u...try this out...for fun, ok? dont be serious.. http://web.tickle.com/dog/

love is kind.
It does not envy,
it does not boast,
it is not proud.
It is not rude,
it is not self-seeking,
it is not easily angered,
it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil
but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects,
Love never fails."
1 Corinthians 13:4-8
Happy Valentine's Day....

If he had a wallet, your photo would be in it.
He sends you flowers every spring and a sunrise every morning.
Whenever you want to talk, he’ll listen.
He can live anywhere in the universe, and he chose your heart.
Face it, friend. He’s crazy about you." - Unknown

This is really cool campaign....saving the wheel?? At first I really wondering what it's all about..esp...My favourite dude...Josh Harris come and posting on the picture for this saving the wheel thing...I was very curious haha....but now as The New Attitude conference has resume...and yeah..this is just a creative and humorous way of presenting the truth to our generation....
Forget Reinvention but back to the Humble Orthodoxy!
The wheel represents the Truth of the Gospel. It doesn't need to be reinvent!!....The truth will always remain true....So as a christian, the follower of the Truth (Jesus)..we need to stand on our ground and fight for the Truth!!.. Let's save the wheel today....no compromise....there are so much wheels that need to be saved today before it would be transformed.....then it would not be any good use.....
