Christmas at Longhouse

The weather was oh-so-wonderful despite the flood in Sibu town... we finally reach the longhouse after the 3 hours bumpy bus ride from Sibu... (not even genting's roller-coaster can beat tat bumpy ride) when we reach, we had to walk another 1 to 2 km of stony path to the longhouse...

Look how long the house is!!! Endless...

Some of the aunties who could not stand the heat...


The special gateway tat the ppl from the longhouse build to welcome us... the coconut leaves are such beautiful sight...

All waiting for Rev Tiong to cut the ribbon for the opening ceremony... the ppl there are so cute, they insisted on singing a lagu sembahyang which we had no idea wat to sing so in the end we sang "We wish you a merry Christmas"

Traditional iban costume... (esp to all west malaysians, don think u guys see this b4) hehe

View from inside the gate...

The longhouse folks are so helpful to put on fans for us...

Dora n Andrea!!!

Jonathan n Alan

The decos...

The one end of the longhouse where we had our Christmas service...

Look at the effort they put to decorate the whole corridor... imagine how much colour paper they had to prepare to decorate such LONG corridor...

Call to worship... but i don understand a thing...

For those anak bandar... guess u never see this b4!!! ha ha

2 of the naughtiest kids i ever met in my entire life...


Blessed Christmas everyone!!!

Christmas in Sibu...

Although i was down wif a major flu which cause me to lose my voice for 3 days, Christmas in Sibu is very much exciting n fun fun fun!!!

First there is 'the' camp which i had to walk on water to the bus station (because sibu was flooded tat time) to reach Mukah... i had a prayer camp last year at the same resort n this time, all the good old memory juz came back to me...


Kingwood Resort, Mukah
Such a beautiful place...

Sabrina n me (not forgetting frosty the snowman)

Celebrating Chu Kion's 21st birthday by the romantic beach...
(hiak hiak... i smell sth fishy...)

Out of nowhere she was squashed wif raw eggs n the yummy chocolate cake...

Poor cake...

then we all proceed to another midnight activity - UNO n pringles n more pringles

3 jokers... sigh


Then the journey continues wif a Christmas procession around Sibu town...
Sabrina n Nyuk Hung

Jac n Ah Fong

All ready in green n red for the parade...

They claimed to be high on the spirit... ehem

The beautifully decorated vehicles...

Accompanied by banners...

May you celebrate Christmas with Jesus this year!

Set the world on fire

I wanna set the world on fire
Until it’s burning bright for You
It’s everything that I desire
Can I be the one You use?

I, I am small but
You, You are big enough
I, I am weak but
You, You are strong enough to
Take my dreams
Come and give them wings
Lord with You
There’s nothing I can not do
Nothing I cannot do

I wanna feed the hungry children
And reach across the farthest land
And tell the broken there is healing
And mercy in the Father’s hands

My hands my feet
My everything
My life, my love
Lord, use me

I wanna set the world on fire
I wanna set the world on fire, yeah

I’m gonna set the world on fire
Set the world on fire

Thoughts on benchwork

during my 3 weeks of GMI, the one thing tat impact me the most is the benchwork... it is through benchwork tat i realise sth important... i get to know more about Jesus's life before he went out to preach the gospel...

one day, my fren came to me while i was sawing my metal workpiece n told me :
"u must be good in this."

(quite confuse by this statement) i ask back :
"Why?"

"Coz u r a Christian"
(what he meant is Jesus being a carpenter)

Then i realise... so this is how Jesus spend most of his time doing... so i manage to hav a glimpse of Jesus life...

no wonder He can be physically so strong because it really take a lot of effort to saw even a small part of the metal workpiece...

no wonder He can be so patience when dealing wif ppl who do not understand Him because it really take a lot of time juz to make the surface smooth n flat (90 degrees to the horizontal...)

no wonder He can be so careful about things He say or He does because when handling the workpiece, we cannot afford to make mistakes otherwise it cannot be make up again...

no wonder He can be so precise in the things He say to make sure the message gets through His ppl because when hitting the hammer, we must be precise otherwise u will end up wif a sore thumb like me...

no wonder He is so well prepared in His ministry because when drilling a hole, we must first prepare a guider by punching a small hole on the surface...

and sometimes, i even feel tat Jesus is like the workpiece, so willingly giv up His life for us so tat we can be saved...

there are also times i feel like we are the workpiece, we must be willing to offer ourselves to be drilled, punched, sawed, filed, smoothened, flattened, corrected etc so tat we can be the final masterpiece...

benchwork is not a bad thing after all... (now i juz hope i did not fail my electric class) haha
