Hit the road once again...!! Nov 2009 Update.

Hi there,















As I officially closed down Mekongvision.com. So from now on, all the newsletter I do will be in the form of post on this blog. So that you guys don't have to go all over the place to read about what's happening with me. So I have made this blog as a central venue for all of you who would like to be in touch as well as pray for me. Thank you for all these years of supporting me in many different ways. THANK YOU. So here come the update of last few months of 2009.

YWAM Singapore website.
http://www.ywam.org.sg

After many many years, finally I managed to revamping the entire site. Total makeover it. Hope you guys like it and find it's convenient to find out information about YWAM Singapore training as well as whole lots of opportunity to serve God in Asia. =)

YWAM going 50!

In 2010, YWAM International will turn 50! Yeah....Jubilee year for us as a mission. So Singapore will also be one of 40 venues around the world to celebrate 50th anniversary of YWAM. So that's what kept me pretty busy past month, working on Video presentation for the event. Due to lack of Video editing experience as well as good equipment. It has been real challenging time for me. Thank God for friend namely Brandon!! He has been such a blessing helping me out. Can't wait until the end product finished! Do pray for me for wisdom from to the Lord to be able to do this Video well. Pray for my MacBook to be able to carry the load of all HD footages which I know....it has been out-performed. Hopefully my MacBook would survived then haha.. =)

Hit the road once more..

Year end also means "MISSION TRIP!!" Yoohoo!! Love it, so this time I'll be leading a youth team from Bethesda Bedok-Tampines Church to Cebu, Philippines. It's gonna be exciting as this will be my 1st time visiting Philippines. I'm excited to see what God is doing there. So from 28th November - 6th December 2009 I'll be there. So please pray with us that indeed we will be a blessing to people we meet wherever we are.

















After the trip. I'll be back in Singapore for another week. Sending my Joy off for her DTS outreach in which she will be heading to Japan and Myanmar until end of January 2010. And after that, I will embark on another adventure. (I can't seem to have enough of it haha.) For I will be taking a train from Singapore up to Bangkok. (nearly 2,000 Kms. ride!) and eventually heading home to Chiang Mai, visiting my family for 2 weeks over X'mas and New Year. I do ask for your prayer even much more not just in journey mercy but also for my family. My mom has not been well physically. I do hope to be there to help in whatever I can.

So that is it for my 2009. Watch this space as soon enough, there will be X'mas surprised for all of you! =)

Thank you for your partnership. I pray that you have a blessed X'mas and peace from God as you prepare to enter into new year.

Blessings.
Tee.

PS. God has been faithful in every step that I take. And all these things could only happened because you guys have been obeying the Lord in giving sacrificially for me. For this, I say....THANK YOU. May the Lord bless you abundantly more than you could ever imagine.

If you wish to bless me in whatever way, please do not be hesitate to contact me.

Thank you once again....I guess, I will never say enough how graeful I am to have you as friend. Do keep intouch. Facebook, Twitter, Blog....it's all just one touch away. =)

It's all because of Twitter!

I probably could put a blame on Twitter. The very reason why I hardly write much on this blog anymore. Since Twitter has become such an easier way to communicate with short messages. So somewhat I have used this blog more like a video blog where I share some of video from YouTube that I find worthy of recommending to all of you. But nonetheless, I try my best to write more on here. For those who use Twitter. Please do add me as your pal. So we could keep tweeting each other!!

By the way,I'm currently working on a X'mas project which I hope to share with you all as a X'mas present to everyone of you. Watch this space!!!

Self-control...

I thought this message by Josh Harris is pretty good reminder or rather warning for all of us. (esp.myself) of how we spend time on the internet, etc.... Are we wasting our time? Or are we doing something productive and benefit to our very own soul??

"You Christians look after a document containing enough dynamite to blow all civilization to pieces, turn the world upside down, and bring peace to a battle-torn planet. But you treat it as though it is nothing more than a piece of good literature." - Mohandas Gandhi

Mango...

I remember growing up, my house has this big huge mango tree right next to my house where my bedroom is actually. So every year, we will have nice big mango to have eventhough, I'm not a real big fan of it. But it is still the fruit of my very own home. Today I was shocked, for those mango I have ever seen is nowhere bigger than this one I am about to show you. I'm wondering if I'm getting smaller or the mango is actually getting bigger. Check it out!!! It's gigantic....(jee-jan-tic) as how Francisca would say it. haha. =p

There is something about children...



















There is something about children that made me wonder, you always see them smile, as if there is no sorrow in life. They just seem to laugh about everything. Oh man, look at those smile from cheek to cheek. They're just so adorable. It felt as if sometimes, being a children might be a good thing. You are very care-free. You don't have too many thing to worry about much. Not like us older folks. Recently I just been to developing nations like Uganda and Cambodia. Even though they don't have much. But they still have that kinda joy. A great smile on their faces. It just amazed me. Isn't that what Jesus meant?, for us to have a child-like faith? To simply trusting God the Father, and do not have to be anxious about anything....but in everything give thanks and live life full of joy! I think these kids are really full of joy.

Now I do want to be like a little children once again. hee..... =)

This post is for MJ.....

Hope you enjoy this video...

CRIT Report

Who would think that God is going to use Uganda as a place to shape and refine the ministry of my life. Africa has been the most unknown continent in my knowledge until my visit to Uganda this time round. It changed my life forever.....

After long journey, I mean really long journey. 2 hours flight from Singapore to Bangkok, waiting for 12 hours to catch the next flight then another 9 hours long of sleepless flight to Nairobi. Stop for 2 hours and another an hour flight to Entebbe, Uganda. It was so cool though the first glimpse of Uganda greeting me was this beautiful rainbow. Amazing creation of our great creator. I'm so excited to see Africa for the 1st time.


I spent in Kampala for a few nights with a friend's family then moving on to YWAM Hopeland, Jinja. It is a beautiful base. The contrast of blue sky and red earth filled with green blade of grass is just so amazing. Reminding me of Christmas! It was such great opportunity for me to meet up with different people from around the world who are passionate about communication.

Our 1st week of meeting begins with Basic Communication Workshop (BCW) which aims to equip each YWAMer to love and communicate well through different media and form. Either in verbal or non-verbal form of communication or different set of skill such as writing, graphic design, photography and videography has been taught. At the end of the week, every participants were convinced that they too can be a good communicator for this mission and ultimately, for Christ.

Then we proceed on to CRIT consultation. Communication Research and Information Technology (CRIT) initiative was formed by YWAM's International Chairman, Lynn Green together with the team from YWAM International Communication Network (YWAM ICN) in Colorado Springs, USA. with a purpose to bring healing and restoration to the nervous system of YWAM's body. Which is our communication within the mission. So this initiative is hoping to empower YWAM as a whole to communicate and stay connected in partnership with one another and stop isolation.

After much time of discussions and breaking into different work groups. I personally become more aware of those GAPS...that is existing in this world and somehow get into our mission. Just to name a few big one such as the gap of languages, cultures, financial stability and even the access to an information technology. All these gaps, somehow has become a stone wall that divides our mission. Communication is such a key to tear down these walls and bridge the gap.

It all come down to "RELATIONSHIPS" If we value relationships, we would value communication. It's always go hand in hand. Because God cares, that's why He sent His only begotten son to come and be a communicator for His love to all mankind. To bring healing, restoration and bridge the gap between God and man.

Understand value of Communication does help transformed my whole concept of what I do in this mission. As a graphic designer, sometimes I have this thought that "My job is less important than those that go out there preaching the Gospel in the front line." That's only come out of the Sacred vs Secular mindset. That's not biblical at all.

All that we do, do it as if unto the Lord. As part of the body, we do have roles and functions. Every single function is as equally as important. Can you imagine, the commandos who went out there without headquarters' support. The battle is already lost even before it started.

I am inspired, I am empowered. I now see the value in what I do for this mission so clearly. To come all the way to Africa just for this is absolutely worth it.

Thanks for all the great memories and sweet fellowship we have CRITters...stay in touch until our path crossed once more.



Our next YWAM CRIT annual meeting will be held in Asia. It's coming home!!

Psalm 23

1The LORD is MY shepherd; I shall not want.
2He makes me lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside still waters.
3He restores my soul.
He leads me in paths of righteousness
for his name’s sake.

4Even 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.

5You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
6Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD
forever.

I have been pondering upon this almost over quoted scripture. I felt peace, I know that in good time and bad time, I will not be afraid, for my God...my GOOD shepherd is watching over me (and that's included everyone that I love and care for.) So I know that I know that I know that my God is good. We will get through this... Your prayer for us are very much appreciated.

The Shack.....must read for this generation.

It has been awhile since I read such a good fiction story....(well for the fact that I'm not a big fan of fiction book anyway haha... =p) but I must tell people about this book because it's such a revolutionary book I ever read...it brought such a great impact in my understanding of who God really is...

I first heard about "The Shack" from some other YWAMers in the US. I didn't really pay attention until it hits the store in Singapore. But Still I only managed to pick it's copy up in India during my outreach...(for the fact that it's sooooo cheap!). I never regret it at all buying this book and read it.

William P. Young is really an amazing writer. He managed to translate a lot of highly complicated truth about God, theology and stuff like that, break it down into a very simple form that anyone would be able to understand. The way most people identified. Especially, the key issue that the book is targeting....the BIG question of "Where is God in the midst of tragedy...??" I think as I read this book, it gave an acceptable and reasonable answer to this question. I've got to salute him for his spirit-filled wisdom in how he wrote this book.

Even though the whole story of this man, Mackenzie is totally fictional, but yet it's indeed full of truth about the character of God, the struggle that many people are facing try to figured out how to relate with God in the midst of tragedy, bad time, etc.... I think this book did a fantastic job in revealing the heart of God the Father, his compassion for the broken-hearted. As I read this book, I wept..for God so loved me....so bad until I felt at time, what did I do to deserved this great love....?? well, I did nothing.... I come to understand far better, what the grace of God mean... Thank you Jesus for your love for me....

Pick this book up whenever you could find one....You will surely enjoy it....I guaranteed... haha
Have fun reading and remember to get on your knees and thank Him for His love just for all of us.... =)
