SOS Youth Camp 2011 (Part 3)

Hello! Hello!
How's everybody doing? Now, it's been a while since the 2nd part of our Youth camp. This is the 3rd Review. Hope you remember it =)

What Happens When You Touch God. 
Luke 8:40-48  

The NLT version of this passage has it subtitled: "Jesus Heals in Response to Faith". It talks about a woman's faith which led her to healing from suffering a sickness called hemorrhage for 12 long years. Well, you must wonder what hemorrhage is. Hemorrhage is a sickness whereby woman will experience menstruation (a.k.a period) every single day; Non-Stop!!! Girls, this is the worst nightmare that can ever come true for you.  *shudders.

Plus, in those days, when women are experiencing menstruation, they are considered unholy and unclean. Therefore, they are forbidden to worship God in the temple. Imagine, this woman was forbidden to worship in the house of God for 12 years!  *Sniff… sniff… 

Now back to the passage, here is what it says. Jesus was just passing through a huge crowd, heading towards Jairus' house, a ruler of  the synagogue, to heal his dying daughter. However, this woman crept behind Jesus and by Faith, she touched just a little corner of Jesus' robe and the Bible says "IMMEDIATELY the bleeding stopped.”
To put it simply: she was healed.

At the point of time, Jesus turned and asked the crowd, "Who touched me?" Everyone denied and Peter even explained that the whole crowd was pressing against him. But Jesus insisted that someone "deliberately" touched him. He felt healing power going out of him.        
 The woman finally fell in tremble to her knees and told everyone the truth and why she had touched Jesus and that she had been immediately healed. THEN, Jesus said, "DAUGHTER, your FAITH has made you well. Go in Peace." 

You see people, this woman is no different from us today.
There are 4 thing that she did we can relate to.
1. Act of Desperation. 
2. Expression of Genuine Desire. 
3. Bold, Courageous Declaration. 
4. Action of Demonstrative Faith. 

And it all comes down the word "FAITH".
Hebrew 11:6
But without faith no one can please God. We must believe that God is real and that he rewards everyone who searches for him.”  This woman in this passage demonstrates it all. She received from God what no one else can give; healing. You can also receive from God what no one else can give you and experience God's Power in your personal life; like the healing power that went out from Jesus to the woman. For Acts 1:8 says, "But when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, you will receive power." 

This woman received peace, blessings and healing because she had the faith; she believed. The Bible says that she spent EVERYTHING she had on doctors who couldn’t cure her. In the end, she found it from Jesus alone. You too, can begin a new journey of peace and blessing by just believing and having faith in God.

Isn't it wonderful? That all we have to do is, HAVE FAITH, to receive the best reward of life. So people, What are ya waiting for??
 Matthew 21:22 says, "If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer." Matthew 17:26 also says, "...Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible."

What are these 2 doing??

Roast em' marshmallow!
Guess... Who's shadows are these?

The junk food's not clear. We had lots of them that night :-}

We had a blast on our first night. We played something spooky that night planned by our Game master's younger brother, Khai Meng (it must in the genes!) All of us were so into it that no one got a shot of the entire game. However, right after the game the bonfire was on and thank God that it didn't rain. 
 "This is the best youth camp ever since I joined Youth," said Joanna our president.

          "I had so much fun!" said Josephine and Jamie Gan who attended it. 
(They are not sisters by the way, they so happened to have the same surname)

"We truly learned a lot from the camp."

SOS Youth Camp 2011 (Part 2)

Hello again!
As promised the journey of our SOS Youth Camp 2011 will continue. If we're not mistaken, the first morning's plenary session by Ps Chris was about a stomach virus called "Obed-edom". Haha! Just kidding. But that was what he told us! "Obed-edom" sounds like a stomach virus. Check out this 2nd review:

Zer0 to HERO!
1 Chronicles 13:5-14
The passage above tells the story of the process where King David was bringing the Ark or Covenant from Judah into Jerusalem. You see, the Ark was placed on the cart and the men from the family Abinadab were the ones that drove the cart. Along the way, the cart was moving through rocky grounds in a place called Chidon and the Ark was about to fall. So a man named Uzzah wanted to save it from falling to the ground. As soon as his hands touched the Ark, God’s anger was kindled and He struck Uzzah DEAD!
            Now, if you were the other men there, how would you feel? Beyond terrified if you ask me. Well, you are not alone. Even King David was terrified. And he in the end decided to discontinue the journey. Instead, he asked Obed-edom to keep it. And that brave man kept the Ark for 3 months. The LORD blessed the whole family of Obed-edom and everything the man owned.
            How does this story apply to our daily lives? Pastor Chris intro-ed with a joke of Obed-edom’s name. What kind of person who has that weird name which sounds like a stomach virus or something. This guy was a nobody, bravely volunteered to keep the Ark of Covenant safe for God despite witnessing God striking someone dead just because that man touched it to save it.
            When Obed-edom decided to serve God, he became a Hero. He became a somebody. Vs 14 tells us that Obed-edom kept the Ark for 3 motnhs and that he was richly blessed by God.
            Like us, are we brave enough to serve God despite the circumstances surrounding us? Even it means taking a high risk like how Obed-edom did? Pastor Chris also pointed out to us to compare the life of King David and Obed-edom. You see, because Obed-edom took the risk and serve God to keep the Ark, his family was richly blessed. But if you look at the family background of David, he had many rebellious sons. A son who raped his half sister, a son who wants to take over his throne while he was still alive and a son that had 700 wives and 300 concubines. Isn’t that just sad?

  • *      So do not lose out the opportunity when it comes to you, to serve God to your max because if you miss it, the blessings that come with it will never return to you in another way.
  • *      God can and will use you even though you are like an “Obed-edom” and you will be blessed to be a Hero and not a zer0.

SOS Youth Camp 2011

I know, I know. You guys must be thinking this:

  1. Why now only post?
  2. That was like ages ago, man!
  3. There was a camp?
Well I hope the last question won't pop up in any of your mind because there WAS a camp! First of all, we wanna apologize for the 1 month + delay of this post. We youths are quite busy people too. But on the brighter side, this post is a reminder of what we have learned in the camp, that we should be CHAMPS, it's OK to be an "Obed-Edom", our faith should be like the lady who bled for 12 years. Here's the 1st review. 

Plenary sessions with Ps Chris Long:

The Making of A Champion!
              As shared by Pastor Christopher Long, Esau despised this firstborn inheritance by exchanging it for a bowl of food. Jacob was a real trickster (deceiver). The scriptures showed us how Jacob deceived Esau twice to take his birthright from him. Because of this, Esau purposed to kill his younger brother, Jacob. Thus Jacob escaped Esau and flew to stay with his uncle, Laban for twenty years.
             20 years later, Jacob returned to the land of his grandfather, as told by God. And as Jacob & his family were on their way back to Canaan, God appeared to Jacob in a very special away and changed Jacob's name.
             In Genesis 32: It states that Jacob wrestled with a man till daybreak. And when the man saw that he could not overpower Jacob, he touched the socket of Jacob's hip so that his hip was wrenched as he wrestled with the man. The man said: Let me go, for it is daybreak. But Jacob replied, "I will not let you go until you bless me". The man asked him,
“What is your name?"
"Jacob," he answered.
Then the man said, "Your name will no longer be Jacob, but Israel, because you have struggled with God and with men and have overcome."
           This story left a deep impression to me. Why did God wrestled with Jacob? Because God wanted Jacob to recognize his weakness before Him.God wanted Jacob to know that all his strength & wisdom comes from God alone! God had wonderful plans for Jacob, but God's best blessings can only come to those who knows that they cannot please God is their own strength.


1 Corinthians 1: 27-29   God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. He chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things, and the things that are not, to nullify (invalidate) the things that are, so that no one may boast before Him.

Have we recognized our inability to please God?
1 Peter 5: 5-6 Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that He may life you in due time.

WHAT are they doing? WHY are they doing this in the church?

Yay, just like what you see in the pictures, they are washing cars. Not for fun, but to raise funds for their yearly youth camp: God’s Love, which will be held on 13-15 March.

Well, yes, the youths definitely enjoy washing cars together with brothers and sisters in Christ at church! They played, splashed & take tonnes of photos. But most importantly, they learnt to raise funds by doing something and serving the community. Its really a blessing that many gave generously. The youths too, are really blessed to have loving aunties and uncles who trusted them to wash their cars.

Aside raising funds, car wash is seen as a healthy activity for young-energetic youths. They learnt to humble themselves and serve others. Generally, many of us don’t like serving people. Yet Jesus served, and called on His followers (WE) to serve whole-heartedly. Mart 10:45, For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many.
