CA Rocks!!!

Coming to Shah Alam to study is an exciting thing, but it’s also a testing ground of my faith in Jesus Christ. As Christians, we need each other so very much. That’s were Campus Alive comes in. Every Thursday night, the young generation of believers meet in one place, to glorify one God, and to encourage each other to continue living out a life of faith and love.

I knew about CA before I came here (Chieng Loo introduced it to me through a mutual friend). As soon as I visited their blog, I felt drawn to join CA.

So far, CA has had two meetings. One was an introductory meet at Cendana Hostel (what a wonderful place to live in!hmm..) and the other was the first official CA meet in the Atmosphere (the awesome youth gathering room in New Life Church). I can only say one thing: I’m home!

The seniors made us feel welcome from the very first moment we met them at the introductory meeting (Samuel and Chewie!). Soon, we found a group of friendly, caring seniors who brought us into the CA with arms wide open! They really showed God’s love to us.

I especially enjoyed and was refreshed by the singspiration session at the CA meet. Personally, there is nothing for satisfying to me than to lift my voice to praise God! There is a passion in worship that cannot be replaced nor forgotten. And on a by-note, the music was great!

Then we had sharing by Pastor David about stormy times. One verse that he shared reminded me of God’s ultimate love and grace. Romans 8:28 says “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” I was greatly motivated and encouraged by that verse, and I realised that I was here in INTEC, not just to study and make it to an overseas university, but rather, I was here for God. For His will and purpose. No matter what life here will bring my way, I know that God will carry me “on wings like eagles” over the storm.

And after the meeting, we had time to chit-chat awhile alongside refreshments, before it was finally time to say goodnight. Fret not! There’s always next week! The prospect of returning to my family of brothers and sisters in Christ every Thursday is exciting! Thank God for CA and for all the new friends I’ve met there.
