Seek His Kingdom – unspoken prayer answered

S

Last night, I received an email from a staff at Hagar International.  She’s from Canada as well. The first time I corresponded with her was last year in September. That’s six months ago.  I was inquiring a visit to Hagar facility in Cambodia. I also emailed Place of Rescue to see if I can visit them. The plan to visit Hagar International sorta fell through. By the...

Hagar Aftercare for Girls

H

I watched this video this morning.
And to think three weeks ago, I was in the same facility. I walked in the playground.  Played with the same kids.  Went through the classroom…

The organization is called Hagar International.

It’s not that bad

I

Yesterday, I went back to class.  I am taking a course on World Mission at McMaster Divinity College. The teacher was a missionary in Nairobi for a number of years.  He shared with me the following… 95% who went on a short term mission and did nothing afterwards. 95% of long term missionaries went on a short term mission! I shared with him about my struggle with my stomach...

Unusual

U

Thoughts from my trip in Asia… After going to Cambodia, I spent a few days at Singapore.  While I was there, I had the privilige of meeting with Scott Hurd, the CIO of OMF (Overseas Missionary Fellowship).  During lunch, I shared the experience I had at Cambodia.  I made a comment that I never realized how important it was to have running water and electricity.  At...

Repost: Words on Short Term Mission

R

This is by far one of the best posts I’ve read regarding short term mission. In short, short term mission is not a tourist trip.  It is a key leading to long term mission.  Though it might seen there is big expectation, I think it is important for us to wrap our head about missions and the implications of every Christians. Going into Cambodia, I can feel myself being difficult in...

If the Lord’s Will

I

 “Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, spend a year there, buy and sell, and make a profit”; 14 whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away. 15 Instead you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we shall live and do this or that...

A Cambodia Reflection: In Search of a Vision

A

On Jan 20th till Feb 2nd, I was on a 12 day Vision Quest with Ratanak.  The purpose of the trip was to visit Cambodia, visit Ratanak‘s partnering Non Government Organizations (NGOs) and develop a personal plan to help prevent child sex slavery and other poverty issues. Prior going to Cambodia, I sat down with one of my professors at MacMaster Divinity College, Dr Lee Beach...

Strangely Familiar

S

After three weeks of travelling across Asia: Cambodia, Singapore and Hong Kong… Three weeks of meeting new faces, old friends and families… Three weeks of visiting from the wealthiest cities to the poverty stricken nation… Three weeks with nothing but a backpack…(where customs kept asking me where’s my luggages)…. I am back home. It is a strange...

I am now in Hong Kong and going to fly back to Canada this afternoon. For the past three weeks, I’ve been to Cambodia on a Vision Quest, to Singapore to visit a friend I met online and Hong Kong to visit my relatives and a friend I know for 20 years. Looking back, 2010 indeed was a year where I changed a lot.  I took a year off triathlon. And lately, I blogged less. There are many...
