MAC [Part 2]

Okay, I promised you dear readers to continue my stories about MAC.. So if you missed the part 1, you may read it just before this post . Sorry my English are so terrible last time .. I was rushing that I didn't even care about my grammar. So, before I tell you readers about how I live at Kg. Sarang, Kota Belud. I want to share one more thing that I forgot to tell you on part 1.. There was this one day in MAC that each person need to pray for the the person whom you picked out their name on a bunch of folded papers that was written in everybody's name. So I got Aileen's name.. We were told by our staffs to asked God what does He wanted to say for the person we chose. Surprisingly, what I heard from God made an impact on my friend , Aileen. I told her not to worry if she go back home after MAC because God will always guide her and I told her not to worry about her burden that she carried because God will handle everything. She told me that really helped her. And you know what? I have no idea that she was worried when would she get home and also she carried a burden. Hallelujah! I am not being proud of myself. Not boasting about myself. But to be proud of Jesus! I am a nobody but you see.. God can use me you know.. to do what He wants me to do.. So if you think that God did not care about you.. YOU ARE WRONG!
So ... proceeding with my stories at the village.. or to be clear, KAMPUNG LIFE :)
Well, since it was my second time on MAC, it was easier for me to bathe in open air with sarong and sleep on the floor. See ? When God would send you somewhere, it would not be as you want it to be.. That's what I learned these past few years. But there's one thing I can't stand, walking up the hill ! The house for us to stay are up the hill and the church are below, and you can guess how thin I had became after two weeks.. walking down is easy but the hard part was walking UP the hill... AAAGHH !! And when the first day I reached there, I had to carry my pail, luggage and another bag stuffed with my huge sleeping bag (it was my brother's cause I don't have a sleeping bag.. And my brother is TALL.. so.. it's quite big.. ) I felt like fainting when I carried all my things up the hill... Seriously ! I guess I'm out of idea to write anymore so I will stop here..  Please enjoy the MAC photos I uploaded below...

MAC 2010 [Part 1]

Group picture :)
Oh wow .. where do I start ? It has been such an incredible experience with God these past three weeks . Amazingly, God brought me to MAC once again. I never thought I would come back to MAC again this year since I had a financial problems before. But God is incredibly amazing .. Really ! Thanks to my sisters and dad, I finally went to MAC. Thank YOU so so much GOD ! You are so AMAZING! I mean, beyond AMAZING !
What I learned those past three weeks are a lot so I will not share all since I couldnt remember all. But what I really couldn't forget is Kak Hannah's sermon when she said about receiving God's gift 'full package' . What she meant by full package is to receive His gift and His order. His LOVE and DO GOOD DEEDS. I'm always happy to receive His love and it brings joy to me but I totally forgot about His order. Besides that, God also thought me about loving others. He says, How can you love ME when you cannot love others? When you say that you love ME but hate your brothers, you are a liar. You cannot even love your brothers whom you can SEE.. How can you love ME whom you cannot SEE?
What God said to me is SUPER SCARY... And it totally changes the way I think about people. God also helped me to forgive the one that really hurts me. Especially the authorities.. parents, teachers,brothers,sisters etc.etc.. You name it.. There was one time our staffs washed our feet and they resemble the authorities that hurts us. One of our staff, Aerna came to me and asked my forgiveness.. then I remembered about all the authorities that hurts me deeply... I cried and I cried as Aerna washed my feet .. And now I forgive them all.. There will be no more anger in any authorities anymore. With God's love, I now can forgive..
Yeah, I can tell you a lot more but I have to be quick or else my sister have to pay more on this cyber cafe. Here's the last one, God also told me to lean on Him always. And do not ever doubt Him. God can do EVERYTHING.. -Literally ! All those time in MAC.. That's what God said to me over and over and over again. Lean on Him! It feels so good to hear His voice. It makes me calm throughout the day. Sorry, will be continued soon! Next, I will tell more about my living in A REAL kampung there. Sorry, see ya'

Wrong E-mail Joke

A Minnesota couple decided to vacation to Florida during the winter. They planned to stay at the very same hotel where they spent their honeymoon 20 years earlier. Because of hectic schedules, it was difficult to coordinate their travel schedules. So, the husband left Minnesota and flew to Florida on Thursday. His wife would fly down the following day.

The husband checked into the hotel. There was a computer in his room, so he decided to send an e-mail to his wife. However, he accidentally left out one letter in her e-mail address, and without realizing his error, he sent the e-mail.

Meanwhile.....somewhere in Houston, a widow had just returned home from her husband's funeral. He was a minister of many years who was called home to glory following a sudden heart attack. The widow decided to check her e-mail, expecting messages from relatives and friends. After reading the first message, she fainted.

The widow's son rushed into the room, found his mother on the floor, and saw the computer screen which read:

To: My Loving Wife
Subject: I've Arrived
Date: 16 May 2003
I know you're surprised to hear from me. They have computers here now and you are allowed to send e-mails to your loved ones. I've just arrived and have been checked in. I see that everything has been prepared for your arrival tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing you then! Hope your journey is not as uneventful as mine was.
P.S. Sure is hot down here!

The Hammer And The Anvil

by : John Clifford


"Last eve I passed beside a blacksmith's door
And heard the anvil ring the vesper chime;
When looking in, I saw upon the floor,
Old hammers worn with beating years of time.

" 'How many anvils have you had,' said I,
To wear and batter all these hammers so?'
'Just one,' said he; then said with twinkling eye,
The anvil wears the hammer out, you know.'

"And so, I thought, the anvil of God's word
For ages skeptic's blows have beat upon;
Yet, though the noise of falling blows was heard,
The anvil is unharmed-the hammers gone!"

Mission Adventure Camp (MAC)


MAC 2009

Look at the picture . Try to spot me ... hehehe ..
If you could see clear enough, I was smiling . Why? Well because that camp means a lot to me. The above picture was MAC 2009. This camp is where I felt really close to God and I had encountered a lot in Him. He told me a lot of things. And best of all.. He changed me.. Besides that, I met so many people.. great people... great friends.. It was the greatest memories I have ever had. Just to be clear on MAC, it is a three week camp where they teach you "What is Christian" , "Listening God's Voice" , "Spiritual Battle" and so much more. And the third week is an outreach week where you reaching out people somewhere else. Then, we also have games. Last year, my favourite game was Treasure Hunting and Angel-Mortal. Okay first, let me explain about this treasure hunting game.. it was not a typical treasure hunting like you always knew. We hunted for PEOPLE. So, it was like this, since we already learned how to listen to God's voice, we ask God our clue that will bring us to our PERSON. Such as a girl with shoulder-length hair or bracelet on left hand or anything. God will show you. And then you wrote that on a piece of paper and compare them with everyone else. After that you will be on a group that have the most similar clue as you. And you will be send to a certain place and you hunt for you PERSON. When you find them, talk to them and pray for them. Then my second favourite game is Angel-Mortal. You will be asked to write your name on  piece of paper and so is everyone. After that, all those papers will be collected and you pick one. Therefore, you will have someone else's name. That  person's name is your Mortal and you will be the Angel. You will not tell anyone about whose angel is whose and whose mortal is whose. As an Angel, you will have to do something good to your Mortal without him/her knowing it is you. What we always do is send them scripture and treat them snacks everyday. I always gave
Everyone will have a work duty!
to my most trustworthy friend to gave it to my Mortal. So she would be like my messenger and she would say to my mortal like this, "This is from your Angel". Remember, you will have an Angel too..! So it is always a surprise what you will get everyday. The Angels will be revealed before you will be going to outreach on the third week. Fun, right?  MAC will be held every year and this year will be on 22nd Nov-11th Dec at Kg. Sarang, Kota Belud. I prayed and I prayed.. and suddenly. God told me to go. I must go, I want to go. The problem is I am struggling in a financial problem. And the devils kept attacking my feelings and worse, my faith. Thank God I am still strong. In Jesus name, you, devil flee far away from me and never come back.

School's project...

Today I skipped school. And guess what? I saw Alexander's (Gobou) Facebook status saying that only 14 people present in our class today. Wow, really? Very very shocking. And I saw Faris commented his status that my teacher, Mrs. Amelia gave them chocolates. So he wanted to make us regret for not going to school today. But that's okay 'cause I have chocolates at home too:) And it's Cadbury's. Just to mention xD
I want to update my blog yesterday but I just don't have the time. Well, I have time now. So here goes..
Yesterday was the scrapbook competition. In our class (3UM), there were two groups doing it. The first group were Sherine,Sarah,Elvecca and... I forgot.. Sorry xp And the second group were Ernie,Fredina,Sylviana, and me. Then Fazira,Nathalie,Olivia,Jonsonty,Roland,Adline and Ezzatul joined us to help. For me, it was pretty fun. We were quite busy yesterday while doing the scrapbook. We were cutting so many newspapers and magazines and imagine the rubbish on the floor. Haha. I don't know what happened to me that time 'cause if I think it back again.. I was walking here and there and there and there.. I have no idea.. I guess I was too excited helping everyone. And I also remember that everyone is calling my name. "Susan, tulung lukis dulu sini..", "Susan, macamana ni? Kita tiada gambar simbol..", "Susan, bulih ka kita buat begini?", "Susan, saya tidak tau sudah macamana mau buat ni..", "Susan, ini logo ka simbol?" ... Susan, .... Susan,... Susan,.... No wonder I was so confused. But it's okay since I helped them. And when Mrs. Amelia said "Ini sepatutnya kerja satu kelas ni.. Kenapa yang ini saja buat ni?" And she said something about EVERYONE must help and she did not want to see a person sitting down, not doing anything. Then all of them stood up and walked to the us, the two groups to help. Some of them were picking up the rubbish. Just when I thought that we would never get to finished it... It was already done. I was so overwhelmed for their hard work. If I could cry I would. But that would be awkward. So,  
Thank you so much for helping us :)
especially the two groups. They were really helping out to do the scrapbook. Every drop of sweat was worth it. And last but not least..

What's gonna work..?
TEAMWORK!

.Thank you.

Sorry Doggie

Yesterday, my family and I went to church as usual like every Sunday. But after the leaders' meeting we went home quite late. And in around 2.00 pm we were on our way home. While we were on our way, there's a dog crossing the road. Hmm.. a dog crossing the road.. no big deal huh? BUT the dog ran back to where it came from JUST WHEN OUR CAR WAS APPROACHING..

Then..

It happened..

WE HIT THE DOG

My face turned pale. My mind went blank. I can hear the dog's body under the car. And I can never forget the sound. All of us in the car was so shocked that nobody dare to turned around to look back at the dog. And THANK GOD I didn't turn around to look back or else that image would probably stuck in my mind FOREVER. I was seriously was on a trauma but it only last a few minutes after I tried to comfort myself. I kept thinking that dogs died on the roads everytime and it was an accident. You see, we're not meant to do it you know. If we hit the brake on the middle of the road, we would probably on the risk of dying if a car suddenly hit us from the back. So, don't blame us.. It was not our fault to keep our safety first. But still, I felt sorry for the dog anyway. Sorry doggie. We're not meant to.

Why I Would Be Picky When It Comes to Adding and Approving Friends on Facebook

Do you want to be like that girl? Seriously? 25 hours on Facebook?
 
First, let me tell you that I have 394 friends on Facebook. Not so many huh? And yet, I don't even know some of my friends on my Facebook. There's people that have been adding friends to 4,000 people.. do they even know all of their friends there? Do they even met 4,000 people in their life? I doubt it. Well, I don't think I've met 4,000 people in my life. Before this, I approve ALL people who added me. And what happened? Here's one.. There was this one guy from one of my friends in Facebook post me an unappropriate video on my wall. I mean, "a grown up video". And in case you're wondering, I didn't watch it. And after that, I deleted him and the video. I was so furious when he send that stupid video! What if someone checked on my profile and they saw that? What will they think of me?! What if my dad saw that?! Or my pastor from church or any other relatives saw that??! After what happened, I deleted every person that I don't know on my friendlist.That's why I will not approve someone just like that. Besides that, my brother said to me before that someone could hacked my account or tracked me down and that person will know where I would always online. That is super scary
Then there's this group of people called the FACEBOOK WORMS..  
What these Facebook worms all have in common is that none of them are telling you the truth. Another thing they have in common is how they compromise your privacy and the privacy of your Facebook friends. Don't be fooled, just be warned.

So dear friends, think twice before adding or approving someone on Facebook.
Thank you.
