A new layout omigosh. XD

I don’t know about you, but I find it a little sore for the eyes. Some don’t agree with me and think its pretty though. So, hey, what do you think? :)

ETA: Now with a poll! Which shall run for a month. :) Oh, and I can’t align it to the center, for some reason.

I am so very impressed by juniors who are so willing to share about what they’ve learnt. And here they are, from Hannah, Sarah, Debbie, Steven and Jan. :) And yeah, they’ve written lengthy reports and its just so awesome, and I do hope that although the formatting seems small and the blog looks small, you’ll read it all. Because they’ve written amazing things, and testimonies and sharing.

By dear Steven

20th August has come! What awaits ahead is even more fascinating! It’s Edward Ling speaking this time for Campus Alive. If you know him he’s Hannah Yeoh’s secretary, and also a man of God who has a heart for sharing to young people.

Things kicked off in a favourable way. First of all, transport system was pretty organized and smooth except for a minor accident which rendered a bunch of Cendana guys waiting endlessly for their transport. Apparently , one of the church van ran out of gasoline. Sorry guys, petrol price is on the hike! =P Eventually everyone reached Kota Kemuning safe and sound though some a little later than others. As the saying goes “better late than never“. Praise God for bringing all of us here together to glorify His Name during this challenging moment with the H1N1 pandemic worsening.

The delectable and scrumptious Chinese food sold at the restaurant below CA never fails to draw fellow CA-ers to settle down. The wide array of gastronomic delights found here is just second to none! After sating ourselves with the ever desirable Chinese food, we headed up and were greeted by some familiar and some new faces and. Everyone was very generous with their smiles and that really made the day. After a while, I reasoned that the new faces were ex-caers. And indeed they are.

Faces of 3 generationsFaces of 3 generations

Games session was never out of the itinerary. So as for this time round, Abigail was the game-master. It was quite a physical game as each and everyone will have a balloon tied to their bodies and their tasks is to safeguard the balloon from bursting . Not only that, they were also required to burst others balloons using a roll of newspapers provided. All of a sudden a COMMOTION evoked once Abigail signalled to start the game. The ladies were very smart. They allied with each other and formed a circle with their balloons hid inside. Bravo! However, there was hardly any explosions heard. A good indication. We despise war against each other. We should all unite in the name of Christ!

Moving on, was worship session led by J-Cyn and with the help of her two vocalists of which 1 is a junior, David. David’s voice was undeniably low and sounded so manly. We also had Theng Theng with her magical fingers running through keyboard to produce melodious song, Larry with his tireless efforts to beat the drums as hard as possible, guitarists enhancing the worship session and most importantly worship leader and back-up singers to lead the crowd. Everyone was very much fired up when we sang the first song “Hari Ini Ku Rasa Bahagia” holding hands and actions together. Another song “ Yesuslah Tuhan” with the message revival and transformation for our nation, Malaysia.

Announcement was made by the emcee, Jonathan, offering was collected and testimony shared by some ex-caers, Mr. Edward Ling, our speaker of the night, went on stage to share about his personal life and testimony. He started his message with this simple yet meaningful Bible verse:

Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people. Proverbs 14:34

To engage our attention, he requested us to shower him with questions and he will try his best to shed some light on them. He even shared with us his past experiences , and how he ended up in Malaysia for God’s calling unto him. The way he shared it was a bit quirky and not very much into politics instead how he overcame the hurdles in his life by believing and holding strong to God.

Photobucket

He inspired all the scholars not to give up on Malaysia for this is our nation needs us the most, to rectify the mistakes and to better the situations and living conditions for everyone. Also the ultimate message of the night was “With God Everything Is Possible”. As Christians , being inaction means committing sin.

One of the CA members, Reuben who happened to be in the Russian Programme is going to depart soon to continue his medical studies over there. All the best and good luck in your future undertakings brother!

Photobucket

After which, we headed over to the next room for our light refreshment. Food again! This time round, we were served with swiss rolls and syrup of which the swiss rolls are provided by Reuben. Thanks Reuben! Time flies when we are enjoying. Soon we will have to depart . Thanks to all who made this CA a great success. That’s all for my sharing and God bless! And don’t forget we are having a special speaker on the 11th of September.

Hannah Yeoh is the Subang Jaya assemblyman, she is a DAP politician, and a Christian who inculcates her values into her leadership. Don’t miss it ya!

So now we are going to hear from our sharer for this week (drum rolls) JIEN LEE.

Hello I am Jien Lee.

-Initially, I, together with classmate Jan were not able to attend CA on 20th August. We were supposed to have Maths Studies replacement class from 6pm till 9pm. When we first heard the news, we were like, “Oh man! Cannot go CA anymore… I want to go larrr!…” We were seriously hoping that our dear lecturer would change his mind…

So on that fateful Thursday afternoon, after our Maths Studies class, the lecturer announced that the replacement class was cancelled! Praise God, our prayers were answered! Replacement class was deemed unnecessary as we had finished the syllabus in that class itself (albeit at breakneck speed). Yay!

At 6.10pm, I rushed down to the Cendana’s guardhouse, thinking that I was late already. No souls and vans in sight, I waited patiently. At 6.20pm, more and more people started waiting and still no vans to be seen. Then, a car turned up 5 minutes later which could only accommodate 4 people. We got the news that one of the van ran out of gas? And that’s why the transport system went haywire… We forgive you guys! Finally, we departed from Cendana at around 7.20pm (with a growling tummy).

I had to miss the earlier part of games and also praise and worship just to feed my hungry stomach. When I entered the hall, the song “Yesuslah Tuhan” started playing in my ears, the song of prayer to see a transformation and revival in our nation, Malaysia. I felt it was timely to sing this song as Malaysia is currently undergoing many changes, so we should unite our hearts to pray and ask God to heal our land. Kudos to the worship team for a wonderful time of worship too!

After the announcement, offering and testimony session, Mr. Edward Ling, our speaker of the night, went on stage to share about his personal life and testimony. He started his message with this simple yet meaningful Bible verse:

Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people. Proverbs 14:34

He then shared on his experiences of his early life, how he entered into the political scene, how he, together with his counterparts struggled with financial constrains in the 2008 elections and how he, as well as we can make an impact to the society.

Photobucket

What I’ve learned in CA on that day:

1. We, Christians should be the salt and light of our nation, Malaysia.

2. We as students have a role to play in school and society; to practice integrity and to be a good example to the people around us.

3. We Christians must be bold to share the love of Christ to our friends.

4. Inaction can be a sin!

5. Never bribe!

This gathering was indeed an eye-opener for me personally as I’ve never heard a Christian politician speaking about both God and politics. I was greatly blessed by his sharing. I am already looking forward to the next CA featuring our guest speaker, Hannah Yeoh!

Jan the wonderful!

I wasn’t supposed to have gone, but to make a long story short, I ended up going anyway. I’m talking about our fortnightly CA gathering, of course. Apparently, God wanted me to see and hear what the speaker had to say that night.

Due to some transportation problems, CA started later than usual. In fact, there were quite a few minor problems popping up here and there. Nevertheless, we soon got started with two new MC’s – Jonathan Chua and Deborah. Praise God for them! They did a great job with that all through CA, by the way. Then we had games. Frankly, I’m not a huge fan of games, especially those really scary ones where everyone is in great potential danger of getting ‘kena’ by something or somebody. ‘Kena’ by what, I’ll leave you with your experience and imagination to decide. Of course, I still played along. So what did we do? Well, basically, we just had to run around and hit other people’s butts with newspaper-made sticks and try to burst the balloons tied behind their waist. Not a simple task, I tell you but Abigail did a great job for preparing the game to brighten the night.

Photobucket

Anyways, we got over with that and moved on to our praise and worship session. Kudos to J-Cyn and her team for doing an awesome job! After that, two super seniors (no pun intended), who were definitely glad to be back in CA, shared their testimonies on how God has been working in their lives. Moving on to the highlight of the night – our speaker Mr Edward Ling, the political secretary of Hannah Yeo, shared about his testimony of working in the field of politics. Mr Ling is a young, vivacious, lively talkative dude guy. He was great fun and was obviously enjoying himself too.

He touched on many topics and reminded us that at the end of the day, it all comes down to politics. The leaders we choose decide how we live. And thus, it is our responsibility as Christian Malaysians to make wise decisions concerning politics because we CAN make a difference in Malaysia and it’s about time we take the initiative to do so. I myself am not really into politics, but just for the record, his sharing opened my eyes to a great many things. So in conclusion, I’m glad I made it for CA that night. Praise God for His ever accurate timing.

After the sharing, we prayed for Reuben who was leaving for Russia and blessed him to continue to shine for Christ even in a foreign land. Then we had a brief tea fellowship time where we just mixed around and chatted as quickly as we could over delicious swiss rolls and drinks which Reuben had prepared for us. After that, it was hostel-bound for us all.

God works in many ways. That night, I’m not sure how many were touched by the message, but I for one did get something out of it. Once again, glory to God, politics and all. =)

In Christ,

Jan

Debbie, our awesome MC.

It was the first time being the MC for CA and I was really nervous that everything would be screwed up. Well, I don’t really have much experience on MC-ing. Being the MC-ing for CA is my second emceeing experience and my first time was just 1 week before that. The first time being an MC didn’t turn out as what I had expected it to be and everything turned upside down. So when I received J-cyn message, asking me whether I could be the MC for that week, I really doubted it.

Can I be a good MC? What if I screwed it up again? But then I remembered that someone told me before that whatever we are doing, we didn’t do it for our own, nor for others; but we did it for God. This is when I make up my mind that I will be the emcee for CA on that week no matter how it would turns out.

Thank God everything went on smoothly, although there are some obstacles between it. But it was really a good experience and I am glad to have learnt so much with my fellow MC, Jonathan.

I love you Hannah!

Hi! This is Hannah, again!

Last CA was another wonderful experience for me. Especially seeing juniors beginning to serve…I loved the funny game that we had, the beat balloons on people’s butt game!!! Haha…

The praise and worship songs did touch my heart especially the one about Malaysia as our homeland (oopsie, forgot the titile)…it stirred my heart to really love and appreciate Malaysia, and commit the future of Malaysia into God’s hand, praying that God will indeed prosper this land.

The sharing by Mr. Edward was truly not only an eye-, but mind-opener as well. I have never thought of politics as a mission field. And I am comforted and at peace to know that there are politicians out there determined to do the right thing, and to fulfill the will of God. May God’s kingdom be established here!

Finally, the food was great. Tasty swiss rolls! (Thanks to the Russian program brother who contributed, God bless you!) Anyway, I left CA that night not only filled in the physical (stomach), but filled in the Spirit as well. Splendid night!

By lovely Sarah

Hi,

here’s just a teeny-weeny short one on CA last week.

With national day just around the corner, I felt that the Malay songs (sung during praise&worship) and the sermon were very appropriate. It suddenly occurred to me that we, students, could actually make a difference in our schools, particularly INTEC. ‘Making a difference’ does not necessarily have to be a huge impression in someone’s life, but rather the little things we do for others, which involve Christian values like love and forgiveness. Made me think about the reason being Malaysian too =). Oh yeah, my heartfelt gratitude to everyone who made last CA possible!

Okay, I know that’s like really short, haha, hope that’s alright!

Sarah.

I’d really like to thank all the juniors for just writing all this. Because the response has been overwhelming and I thank God that He has truly touched so many. My prayer for more writers has been answered too, praise God! It’s just totally amazing, watching this emails flood my mailbox, and I’m just so thankful. Thank you all who’s been willing to write, share, and all. :)

Thank you. Thank you God.

Have a blessed week. :)

Question!

Filed under: Sharing — campusalive @ 6:04 pm

Hey everyone! I do hope you’re enjoying a one week break!

Now here’s the question, have you been keeping up with your quiet time with God?

It’s a thought to ponder as you answer another! How’s your holiday been? And what have you been up to? Resting well at home after a grueling week of tests? More tests to come? Gasp! Or just going around and meeting old friends eventhough H1N1’s death toll is on the rise?

Do share with us what you’ve done, or things you’ve learned, even during this one week. :)

Moar Feedback!

Filed under: CG Reports — campusalive @ 5:26 pm

We adore feedback. :)

CG was pretty awesome. The seniors did a great job leading us juniors. We had fun stuff, serious stuff AND free ice-cream. But most of all, I could sense how much on fire the seniors are, a fire that is spreading fast. The Holy Spirit is definitely at work here at INTEC. To God be the glory!

Blessings,
Jan

Last Thursday i was attended CG for the third times since i was in INTEC. But it was the first cell group that combined us; the girls and the boys to be together in the name of sisters and brothers in Christ for this year erm…for my badge la. At 7.45 pm, we were told to wait at Akasia’s bus stop for CG. Then, the seniors brought us to Cendana where we played this funny game. We were divided into several groups which I was placed to be in the same group with Beatrice..a young lady who spent her time to be with us eventhough she is not one of the INTEC’s students. She’s really great and funny. The seniors then instructed us to blind folded 3 of the group members and with the situation given, the one who can see had to give instructions to those who can’t to pick a thing that were scattered on the floor. We then instructed and told them the directions in order to get the Holy Bible. As Johnathan picked the Bible up, he suddenly said, “Oh, it’s Larry’s Bible”. By that time, i can’t stop smiling. haha..it was fun although it was a short game.

Seniors also bought us some ice creams from McD. They were so nice!! Then, they brought us to KFC to continue our CG activity that is sharing time. It was all about ‘The Calling’, which was the theme for CA on 6th August. I was in the same group with Esmond, a senior, who was a passionate, great speaker and he told us many new things in life that we should be grateful to our Lord. He also shared most of his experiences and his opinion about what calling is to us. Soon I realised that, CG was a really great place to share our feelings with others about what we feel and think about our God. Well, it is true that serving and worshipping God is really fun and I enjoyed the last CG so much…Thank u seniors..May God Bless U Guys always. Amen..

From, yours truly,
Ivy (ALM Junior)

Last meeting was a blast…
Loved all the interactions that was made be it with God or everyone…
The game was a bit weird anyway the seniors tried their best…
It was meaningful and surely in an island i’ll never forget Larry’s shoe =)…
No one gets left behind was on our mind during the game and we nned sumthing or sumone to complete us…
That is when the topic of “Calling” came to mind…
Although the three question session might shone some ray of hope to ppl but i guess i did offend others and for that i would like to apologise…

p/s : Seniors … Thanks for the ice-cream =) …

Chocotopped Delights!

Filed under: CG Reports — campusalive @ 10:57 am

Wow. What an amazing combined CG that we had last Thursday. Honestly, well, I didn’t quite expect that many. And wow, I love you juniors for coming!! And dedicated seniors too, of course.

I’ll just keep it brief, but will add up all the sharings from various dear wonderful adorable lovely people who went that night. We had a game led by Esmond which was about blindfolding three people and to allow three other people in the same group, to lead them around Dataran Cemara. They had to choose something to help them in a situation, which described by Esmond, was them being stranded in an isolated island.

Some groups grabbed 100Plus (Or Sprite) saying that it’s isotonic and is good for the body! And another took Miranda Orange! Cause it had Vitamin C… Much better right, they say… LOL. I clearly remember another group took Larry’s bible and said that God definitely will help them through, and when they’re done with it, they could either eat it, cause it’s paper, or burn it for a smoke signal.. SWEAT. Then there were slippers…. And lots more fun and laughter. If you were there, you’d know. If you weren’t… Come to CG next time! :D

And after that was walking to McDonalds where we treated them all chocotopped ice cream!~ While they slurpped, Larry shared about CA calling which you should know by heart k… LOL. (Actually I can’t remember all also.. errr. Hahaha.)

Then it was heading to KFC! (Wow, we’re doing a lot of travelling and walking, eh? Good exercise!) And had a wonderful group discussion. Note: If you still need more advice, talk, or feel the need to ask questions, and to seek anything, do not hesitate to come to us no matter how trivial or serious it is. If you think no one will understand, you could be wrong, so do approach us even if its scary at first. We don’t bite, promise. :)

And that’s all for the night. So, let’s here from a first round of sharers! Hannah Kwan, Daniel Tay and Lemon Sze Jia!

Hi! I’m Hannah!

Thank God for the combined cell group! Haha…2 of my prayers are answered that night…though they are puny tiny unimportant prayers. That particular Thursday afternoon I actually prayed out loud in front of my Buddhist friend for God to give me free ice-cream, and also for God to let me have a chance to go McDonald’s or KFC. Then, I just laugh the prayers off and didn’t think about it anymore.

What amazed me was that upon meeting up with the CG gang, seniors told us that we’ll have FREE ICE-CREAM, at MCDONALD’S!!!! Haha, I almost can’t believe my ears but GOD IS GOOD! (I shared this little testimony with my friend later) I am touched by the fact that even small prayers like these are answered by Him, how much more then prayers for our friends and prayers for revival!

I praise God and thank all the seniors for their efforts in making sure that we juniors had a great time during the cell group. I found the game interesting and fun, because I get to lead three blind mice! …And of course, because of the lesson behind it.

The short sharing outside McDonald’s was also timely for me because I was thinking of my purpose as a Christian student in INTEC, and found that I have a calling to share God’s love with my friends and those who come my way. I also enjoyed the group discussion as I found out that I am not alone in my fear of sharing the Gospel. I thank God also for the encouragements from my group members about sharing the Good News to others.

Finally, from the bottom-mest bottom and with ALL of my heart, I thank God for every senior who planned and organised this cell group. I am very much blessed by it. Keep up the good work and may God continue to bless all of you richly in every areas of your life…SHINE FOR HIM!!!

By Daniel, the cute cheeky fella!

On the 13th of August 2009, a combined CG took place at the Dataran Cemara involving all CA goers from Cendana, Akasia and Cemara colleges. The adventure begun with the rolling out of two vehicles; a heavily powered van and a small but swift viva heading out to Cendana to pick up the boys.

After the gathering of everyone at the Akasia bus stop, we headed over to the Dataran Cemara for games! Thanks to  the amazingly handsome Esmond, the games went on very smoothly with everyone grasping the true meaning of the calling of God by the end of the games session.

Following the games, we then headed out of Cemara to McDonalds for free ice-cream, courtesy of the seniors. As Larry shared on the faith and calling of God, everyone listened on while slurping away joyously on their chocolated coated vanilla delight. With that aside, everyone moved on to KFC for group discussions on the few questions that Esmond prepared that night.

After the discussions finished at around 10-ish, groups ended in prayer and a noisy fellowship followed suit! Finally, as CG ended, the tables were cleared and the Cendana boys were sent back while the others took a night stroll back to their respective colleges. What a night it was, everyone enjoyed the company of brothers and sister in Christ and the presence of God in all the activities. Praise the Lord!

-Daniel.

By the brave Lemon, who shouldn’t be feeling guilty.

It’s a hard thing to write in english, but i just try my best to write a sharing that can be understood by u all…

About the CG that day, i think i did learn many ways of worships through u people’s sharing that day….
For example, beetree (It’s actually spelled Beatrice. :D) told us some differences btw christian n buddhist…
this will help us in asking our buddhist friends to come to church.

n through thier sharing, i discover that i pray for to purpose of “pray” but not for the purpose to have a conversation with God.
I read the bible for the purpose of “reading it”, but not thinking the meaning n do what god ask us to do….

I really feel guilty after listening their sharing….. (Do not be guilty darling, we’re all still learning and growing.)
n i know i gonna change my attitude………

n i m trying to discover my talent now….haha
(AWESOME!)

Wow. Thank you so much dears! I do hope more people will share about that night! And yes, I’ll post it up before the holidays lar!

Have a good week!

We Are Purposed and Ready to Step Out!

Filed under: CA Reports,CA Updates,Please Note — campusalive @ 1:25 am

On the 6th of August, it was time for the second Campus Alive gathering of the semester.  All of us (yes, no exceptions) really crammed into either a van or a car to get to Kota Kemuning.  After stuffing ourselves with as much delectable Chinese food as possible, we headed upstairs, where were greeted by the smiling faces of the ushers who gave us tags with funny words on them.  Pickle? BBQ sauce? Bun? Huh? I thought to myself, “Man, I thought I had just eaten!”  Soon afterwards, while we were still confused about the tags, we heard the booming voices of Howard and J-Cyn, asking us to come closer to the stage.  Howard powerfully led us in the opening prayer + “Char Kueh Teow” and then it was time for games!

Photobucket

Photobucket

Krystal was the game-master and she told us that we were to be pickles, or chicken, or beef, etc. based on the tags we got (oh, now I got it). We were to make ‘burgers’ with at least two buns and two pieces of meat in between.  We scurried around the place looking for the guys labelled ‘bun’.  Finally, there were three burgers since there were only 6 buns.  Two were average-sized ones, while the third was just ridiculously humongous and could have been awarded a Guinness World Record.  The leaders of each burger group presented a hilarious description of their burgers and in the end, everyone was a winner, with a different title like ‘Largest Burger’, ‘Fastest-Made Burger’, or ‘Least Healthy Burger’.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Next up was worship.  Larry and Daniel were leading and playing the electric guitars. We also had three generations of musicians playing together. Very encouragingly, a lot of juniors were in the worship team this time and it was only their second meeting! We had a girl drummer, Jan, and the vocalists were Hannah and Ivy.  Manning the keyboard was yet another junior, Abigail. Super senior Bryan rocked the bass guitar. We had a great time worshipping before it was time for offering.

Photobucket

After the offering, we were shown two videos.  The first was about Youth Alpha, while the second was about serving.  The second video showed Larry and Samantha handling everything without any help from others.  While inaccurate of course, it was funny and effective in conveying the message that CA was not run by just a few individuals, but that more people needed to help out in making it a success.  Larry went through the various ministries and what they entailed (for transport: driving the VanAsia!).  The Youth Alpha and serving forms were handed out by the ushers, and the response was tremendous.

Photobucket

We were approaching the climax of the evening.  Then, young and handsome Pastor Alex stylishly went up on the podium to deliver his message on ‘Partnering with God’.  Man, he was seriously good in making these youngsters pay attention with his numerous wisecracks.  He taught us that all of us had different gifts, and that each one of us could offer something up for God’s ministry, be it our time, money, or sweat (I still remember his joke about using the sweat to make salted chicken- that was good).  We can work together with God to carry out His divine plan.  We can be the salt and light of this world to impact the lives of many.

Photobucket

Pastor Alex really encouraged many to serve God and he even touched someone to accept Christ! Praise God! We were encouraged greatly and there is no doubt that God was in our midst, guiding Pastor Alex on what to say and allowing the hearts to be open to His word.

Photobucket

After the inspiring message, we headed over to the next room to have even more food! This time we had sausages and fries with syrup (simply tantalising!).  Soon we had to get ready to leave (sob, sob).  I really must thank Ja Houng, Larry, Aunty Phebe, Pastor David, Uncle Yong, Krystal, Li Sia, Cedric, Daniel, Ji Dian and Uncle Ding, not forgetting his loving wife, for helping out with transport.  That’s all for my sharing and God bless!
