Sunday, April 12, 2009


Hey all! It's the last Campus Alive meet of the year, and a truly eventful one. Our friends from KTT Fellowship will be here and it's going to be the last CA for many of our seniors (ACTP and ALM)...sobs!!! Pastor David of New Life will be speaking on that night on how we make our campus alive (no word pun intended...lol)! : )

But don't worry, CA's not going anywhere, because next next Thursday will be a farewell for the seniors. Location and time will be informed.

Happy Easter! Have a blessed day as we celebrate our risen Saviour Jesus and spread His love! See y'all!

- Larry : )

Hello again!

I say, the new blog's feeling lonely without much comments! :D And there's an article from a wonderful Samantha Sii about Easter too!

It would totally, and I mean it, totally awesome if you would link to the new blog, and yes, spread the word! (So that, you know, it would be like, totally widespread - more people can find it, etc?)

And yes, due to some misunderstanding or so, the latest report was posted up both places. But, do do do visit the new blog.

And that's all from me now. :)

The day we broke the walls!

CA this week was quite a unique one. Those who came were greeted by an all-male ushering team. Some stopped in their tracks to stare. There was Ivan, Tze Jun and Graham. Next, the meeting of the night was started off with the two MCs, Esmond and Krystal. They forgot to introduce themselves at first, and only much later did they recall that not everyone might have remembered their names. It brought about much laughter and a renewed sense of fellowship among those who attended that night. A few announcements were made then, about the coming CG where it would be movie night. The movie, ‘End of the Spear’ was to be shown this coming CG.

The time was then passed to Samantha for the games. We played an interesting game of Tic-Tac-Toe and what made it more interesting is the fact that it was a battle of the sexes! With the boys lined up on one side and the girls on the other, Samantha called out numbers (the rows of the boys and the girls were numbered first) and the person whose number got called would run to save a strategic seat so that they could form a line of four in a row. What was the outcome of the game? Well, let’s just say that it proved why males engineer battles and are addicted to online strategy games.





After the games, it was then time to worship. Worship that night was done a little differently. It was led by Joy and only had Chewie and Larry as guitarists with no other instruments for the night. Joy had a brilliant idea of making it acoustic. Samantha and Katherine sang beautifully for back-up. The songs, Yesus Pokokku was sang with much animation and truly, it set the mood for the time of worship. The next few songs sang were Oh Happy Day, Lord of Lords, You’ll Come and Everything. It was a meaningful time of worship and was a good transition to the time for the speaker.

The speaker of the night was Brother Michael from the Fellowship of Evangelical Students, (FES). He is no stranger to those who have come for CA before. His message was on 'Prejudice'. He first began with asking us to get into groups of threes to discuss the things that we were prejudiced against, and the prejudices against ourselves we were most hurt at. Ee Heng mentioned that he had prejudices against people who were a head taller than he was. There was also prejudices against people who cannot speak English. And Cedric spoke up to mention that he was hurt mostly by prejudices against him unable to speak Chinese (so we shall avoid calling them bananas, yeah?). Brother Michael encouraged us to stop having prejudices against our brothers and sisters of different races here in Malaysia. He even elaborated on the parable of the good Samaritan, Luke 10:25-37. He spoke on how we should not only be Christians Christian but to be Malaysian Christians, understanding of other people and their beliefs. We must not only do our duty to God, but do His pleasing work by helping those He has placed in our paths to help. This is so that we can reach out to them and not be complacent in our Christian lives. He then spoke on how to break the walls of prejudice.

“If we realize that all things given to us are from God, then we truly have nothing to lose as we break those walls and reach out.”

Such a sharing was thought-provoking, challenging, and refreshing. For at the end of the day, indeed all we have are two hands and a heart, to make a difference in our land and home.

Then it was time for refreshments which were prepared by Pei Ling and Maritha. It was a good time of fellowship and food, coupled with laughter and excitement that ended yet another wonderful meet.

Hey people, I'm very proud to say that the new blog is very much nearly done. Now, there's pretty limited stuff as there's not much to say just yet. But the latest report shall be posted there! Now, how awesome is that? :D I'm very very excited, aren't you? Many new things, so take your time and read them all!

The new blog address is this: http://www.campusalive.wordpress.com/

I know that we're able to transfer every material here to there but we'd like to keep it this way. :)

And yes, there are those who have questioned our decision to shift to Wordpress. I understand that Wordpress isn't as friendly as Blogger, and the background is rigid, and we can't have a chatbox, etc.

Let's just say that God wanted a change. I was in a worship session during ACTs, when I prayed to God about what to do should I lead IT Ministry. And I believe that God spoke to me throughout the worship session and sermon. That day, both Pat and I felt strongly that everything shared by the Pastor was so inter-related to CA. Seriously. It's an awesome sermon by Pastor Kenneth.

He gave me insights, gave me new challenges. :) And one of them insights was to have new pages with more details. I can't quite explain it, but it's already been done up in Wordpress. The function doesn't exist for Blogger, which is why is was tough.

I also understand that I haven't been doing a good job sprucing up the place, but I realize that God being the centre of it all is most important. That a new blog is necessary for a new revival, coinciding with our new ministry in CA, and other important new things coming up. A change is coming, and we're trying to keep up with the massive awesomeness God is bringing forward for us to take charge. :)

I hope I make sense. Please do visit the new blog and give it a shot. :)

The Walls Between Us - Next CA!

CA is back! After a one week holiday for the most of us, we return with a topic which concerns all Malaysians. As a new generation it is time we unite in love and harmony, and that means breaking the walls that separate us racially. Come and bring your friends for a night that will refresh, renew, and change you! See you there!

The Fire Within

With the advent of third week of March, our ministry had managed yet another Camps Alive which falled on 11 March 2009. In the evening, those who were in-charge of transportation waited at the bus stops located at Cendana, Cemara and Akasia hostels. I was to wait at Cendana hostel whereas the other friend, Jonathan Wong had been waiting at Cemara and Akasia hostel for quite a long time that evening. So, we gathered around at around 6.00p.m. and set off to church after that.

The Campus Alive started at 8.00p.m. after everyone had had their dinners. That night, the number of attendees was not as many as usual. The cause for that was due to the fact that the seniors had exams and the ADFP students had their tests that day. All of us knew that attendance didn’t really matter. Campus Alive would still went on regardless of the number of people, and time will come to prove that Jesus can provide the number. Before the Campus Alive was officially started, we had a praying session. It was initiated by Larry and ended by Samantha. Next, Campus Alive was made alive by our emcees of the day, Graham Lai from AUSMAT and Fabiolla Lea from ALM. This was then followed by an opening prayer, led by Graham Lai.

After that, we proceeded to our next event, the gaming session. The game master of the day was Joy. She had proposed to us a game by which we all were separated into two groups and lined up. So, the first person of each group would have to think of and create some random yet so-called exaggerated movements to be imitated by the next person lining up behind. The condition here was that no one was supposed to look forward by turning around from each other from the front to the back. Therefore, the imitation was relayed from the first person to the next one till the last person. The last person would then be invited to come to the front for the performance of 'relayed movements'. They were Jonathan Wong and Jonathan Chua. (Quote: “The battle of the Jons’ begins!” Joy) Well, as what we had seen, the movements were prodigiously distorted to an extent that they hardly showed any similarities with the original one, causing the people around laughing out their heads off! Next, the first people, namely Esmond, Joshua and Karen were also asked to perform the original version of movements that really showed a great difference.

The third event was the worshipping session, led by Larry. Larry himself was the guitarist and the vocal. The other members of the band comprised the drummer (Joshua), the keyboard player (Samantha) and two backup singers (Jonathan Chua and Hui Theng) So, Larry had brought to us a few worship songs, namely One Way, Praises (Everyone), For All You've Done, Amazed, Heart of Worship, Ku Mahu Cinta Yesus Selamanya. Certainly, it was clearly revealed that all people sang the worship songs with hearts for Jesus. The presence of His love has always been the avenue for us to love people and to be loved by people as well. The atmosphere was indeed teeming with all His love!

Then, this was followed by our next event, a speech by Elder Kien Yiak from Acts Church. He is truly a good and sophisticated speaker and all of us were greatly impressed by his talk. He preached to us about a lot of things in a humorous manner, and that was why the surrounding atmosphere was always full of laughter and cheering. In his preaching, we were told to behave in our real and sincere personality. We should act according to our characters and be debarred from becoming double-faced people. Besides that, he also told us that passion is all about giving, in accordance with what the bible has mentioned. He emphasized to us that Jesus Christ believes in us, and will always provide the clues and answers whenever we are confronted with problems. Therefore, faith is what we truly need and that is how we will be blessed. Apart from that, we were also being reminded that Jesus is able to give. If we can manage strong faith in Jesus, all our requests will be answered. He listens to our prayers and problems, and He does answer them. "God does answer us. He answers all our phone calls, SMS, and E-mails!!", he talked to us in a creative way.

It was really a long period of time before he finished his preaching. The talk was started at 9.00p.m. and ended at 10p.m. After that, there were announcements from the emcees, saying that there would be a prayer meeting in Cendana, Akasia and Cemara hostels at 8.00p.m. the next day. Also, a Post Mortem would also be held in Cemara's "Starbucks" on Friday.

Finally and practically, the Campus Alive was ended after the announcements, accompanied by the prayers led by Elder Kien Yiak. After that, we went to refreshment room for refreshment prepared by Amy while waiting for the transportation fetching us back to respective hostel. Usually, refreshment time is considered as the best time where the people can mix around and communicate with each others.

This flyer was awesomely done by Julius which was in colour but he deleted that soft copy from his computer. Give him a cheer anyways! :)

P/S: I'm sorry it's late and for being incompetent. ;__: I don't know why I can't seem to be able to handle this properly, but I'll promise I'll do better. Really. It's all my fault.
