Once again, I'm reminded of this verse. Romans 8:28
And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

(And also coincidentally seeing a packet of food with the expiry date of 2018-8-28)

Just on Sunday evening, we received news that our pastor had gotten into a car accident in Brazil, and had passed away. It was shocking cos it's just too sudden. He has been a Father to many nations, literally because he planted so many churches around the world. We celebrated VFC40 milestone last Nov, we celebrated lives and churches that were planted over the last 40 years.

I rmb the days when i started serving in the video ministry, and constantly following UMA around, rendering our help whenever we can. Be it doing recording in TPY building or Tamp building, and always "following" pastor on the video camera. He knows the technical stuff, as he used to studied engineering. He's always jovial, yet serious at the same time. I'm always inspired by his faith in giving. His sermons about sacrificial offering, kairos offering, Missions Faith Pledge, paying our tithes, challenging us to put our faith in God, like how he walked the talk. I always find this difficult, engineering is a very logical & analytical course. But he demonstrated and lived out a life full of trust & faith.

I thank God for placing him & his family to this country, for their great faith and obedience. I'm really thankful for the legacy that he has left behind. I'm sure God must had been so pleased with him that's why he went home just like that. I pray that this DNA of the church will continue to stay in us & propel us to do His work. Give us the conviction & sense of urgency that no time should be wasted, for we do not know when the time is up.

What will you do, if you only have 30 days to live?

The Stand - Hillsong

You stood before creation
Eternity in your hand
You spoke the earth into motion
My soul now to stand

You stood before my failure
And carried the cross for my shame
My sin weighed upon your shoulders
My soul now to stand

So what can I say?
And what can I do?
But offer this heart, Oh God
Completely to you

So I'll walk upon salvation
Your spirit alive in me
This life to declare your promise
My soul now to stand

So what can I say?
And what can I do?
But offer this heart, Oh God
Completely to you

I'll stand
With arms high and heart abandoned
In awe of the one who gave it all
I'll stand
My soul Lord to you surrendered
All I am is yours

--
At a youth camp many years ago, we sang this song (and a whole bunch of other songs) relentlessly. Cos you know, camp = playlist repeat mode.

The lyrics really spoke to my heart, about surrendering my all to Him. I rmb telling God at that point of time, that I'll make this our song. That in future, whenever I'm not aligned with him, or when He tries to get my attention (cos I'm also the kind who's impatient to listen), I will rmb this youth camp night. Cos this was the night when I told God that I've surrendered my life to Him and it's up to him to use it.

When we sang this during the Kingdom Life Conference, I was so convicted and assured that God is real. Cos he knew my struggles.

♥ Everlasting God

Strength will rise as we wait upon the Lord
We will wait upon the Lord
We will wait upon the Lord

Our God, You reign forever
Our hope, our Strong Deliverer
You are the everlasting God
The everlasting God
You do not faint
You won't grow weary

Our God, You reign forever
Our hope, our Strong Deliverer
You are the everlasting God
The everlasting God
You do not faint
You won't grow weary

You're the defender of the weak
You comfort those in need
You lift us up on wings like eagles

Yea, June has started. But I wanna backtrack a bit to April :p

So after getting the job offer in March, i took a few days to consider the best date to give the letter. I decided to give the resignation letter in April. The past 3 years plus (just 1 month short off to 4 years & 1 additional day of AL!!) has been an adventure. Good, exciting but also a hell of time. All my seniors left, those who came in after me, a handful of them also left. So the team members are always updated :p I always salute my senior, cos he usually does the training of newbies and also wonder what his 感想 will be when he sees them leave. When I taught newbies, and I see them leave, I always have mix feelings. Glad that they are leaving hell but sad that whatever we taught is like "no point". All these years, I'm still thankful for my seniors guidance and patience when we were working tgt. I enjoy working with my usual group of ppl, knowing the processes, living in my comfort zone. Not exactly comfortable but at least you dun have to re-learn. There's definitely pros n cons everywhere but I think without moving out / on, there's not gonna be any changes in my life. So after tendering, I used my AL to offset the 1 month notice. Cos I was going for a holiday in April. Which brings me to the next topic...

Holiday! So technically after working for 4 days, I went on 10 days AL (17 days not in office) and went to Amsterdam - Brussels - Luxembourg! It was such an exciting , nice and fun trip. Scenic wise, accommodation wise, makan wise, transport wise. Since I had push mail , I decided to glance thru my work mailbox once a while. Which after that, I gave up cos - I'm not gonna read these when I'm back in office (backdated news anyway) and since I'm leaving and handed my work over to the next planner. One of the few trips that I really enjoyed and felt relaxed.. lol..

After holidays, I only had 1 week of work cos (thankfully!) I still had half day time off n half day AL :p to offset my actual last day. Thankful that it was smooth and though I really miss the ppl there. Haha but 好马不吃回头草 :p

May started and my 9 days break started too. Haha. And also the final holiday before new job starts. I mean if you think why am I spending so much money on holidays?! I agree. I've spent too much on holidays and the excuses that I always give is because - I'm stress. :( I agree is not a good reason cos there's better ways to destress. But some how I always felt that I needed to get out of the office, and the country. I love it esp whenever I go Malaysia cos I dun usually get prepaid so no data roam :) main thrill is that I've smth to look forward ! Not just working without any target..

Holiday - this time I went to Hokkaido with the family. I mean it was good.. but I think family trips are usually v different from the ones you go with your friends. Hahaha. Angry part was I fell sick half way during the trip. I couldn't enjoy the food, sleep etc (cough like siao) so I think I must go back to Hokkaido again in future! (More excuses hehehe) went to see the doctor when I touched down and even rejected the MC that he offered! Cos it's my first day of work the next day :(

Work - I tried to eat healthy and bland, drank lotsa water. Ate lozenges. But argh the feeling of not talking! I like listening but I also like to talk... anyway my team... pretty sad that everyone before me are interns or temp staff :( so they will be leaving in due time. So technically my seniors will no longer be there with me by may, June, July, August. At 1 hand I'm really thinking - how am I going to handle the current workload without them, how am I going to learn so much within this short period?! I never worked with interns b4 in prev place, so I never really understand what they do etc hahaha. But when I see this group of interns doing so much work - the planning, the visual factory, the updating etc, I'm just so impressed. Like wah I never knew we could have interns for planning! Good thing is, we do not need to do any manhours, zepc, structure creation hahaha.. so dun need to do SAP training :p here is really a lot of planning and cont improvement here. That aside, every place is the same. You will meet ppl that's nice to work with, or not easy to work with, maybe temperamental ppl also. So haiz, hopefully I can handle them man. PMS better not get in the way. Hahaha.

♥ May

As I'm in the skies, on the way to the land of the rising sun, a few pointers came into my mind.

1) it's been a long while since I struggled to sleep in a night flight ! (Departs 2150, 6 hrs odd journey) perhaps I've been having sufficient sleep the past few days, that's why my body still daydream... actually another reason is cos the screen light from the seat in front of me is disruptive. The ppl in front are annoying and noisy. No, the baby (hehe abi) right in front is less disturbing than these ppl!

2) it's a family holiday trip, it's been a while since I've done gone w family!  Dunno how this will go :/

3) I'm no longer obligated to buy things for my (ex) colleagues cos I won't be meeting them! Mix feelings about it but well, I think I can psycho myself that it's cos I've insufficient $$ since I'm unemployed :)
