Unlearn

U

Before I did my first triathlon, I went online and asked others for help. The forums were filled with ‘wisdom’ and lots and lots of to do lists for the first-timer. Some say you have to bring a bucket filled with water so you can get the sand off of your feet after your swim. Some say you have to bring this or that. Some say to get this gadget or some widget to help you finish the race. The best...

Forward Ever, Backward Never

F

Forward Ever, Backward Never This is the slogan of a primary school we ministered when we were in Uganda. If you are to ask me how’s my spiritual life, right now.  I will use this slogan. Being a father a few weeks ago and studying Masters of Divinity at the same time is no easy feat.  The baby always have an impeccable timing of crying or a need whenever I have an urge to sit...

Bible Books Abbreviations in MLA style

B

I’ve been writing a lot of essays in the MLA format. One thing I found it hard is to know the abbreviations for each book in the Bible in MLA format. The table below is based on the Common Abbreviations for Books of the Bible — MLA at Henry Buhl Library. They had the books in two separate PDFs and in alphabetical order. Both of which is hard for me to find the books easily. So...

Cliff’s “Continuing List” for 2017

C

During the New Years, it is common to do a New Years Resolution.  Though there are some things I’d like to change about myself, there are a few good habits I’d like to keep doing in the coming year. So without further ado, this is Cliff’s “Continuing List” for 2017. Continue to Seek God and His Righteousness first We recently moved back to Canada and I am expecting to be a...

Sermon: Finishing Strong

S

  A photo posted by Generations Youth Ministry (@generationssg) on Nov 4, 2016 at 7:55pm PDT Two Sundays ago, Wai Jia and I had the opportunity to preach one at Generations, Cornerstone Community Church’s Youth Service before we return to Canada.   Every time I preached is a very special occasion.  It is a time to share God’s Word and a time to be used by God as His...

Joy in Obedience

J

It has been a while since I blog.  In fact, our times in Uganda and now back in Singapore have been quiet on the blog front.  On my desktop there are many word docs saved.  Each doc is a blog post which I started but never finished. I am now 36 and moving quickly into 40s.  I am now in a period of my life where I often reflect my past. It has been more than ten years since I became a Christian. ...

Speaking at Q Commons on Resilience and Faith

S

Last night I had the privilege of speaking at Q Commons (Singapore).  Q Commons is an event bringing like-minded Christians and non-Christians to discuss how to advance the common good in our community. My topic was Finding resilience through my faith in Christ. I haven’t spoke on my own journey for a long time.  It was a refreshing time for the audience and also for me as I recalled how...

See you later, Uganda

S

In a few hours, Wai Jia and I will be hopping on a plane leaving Uganda. I haven’t blog much about our experience in Africa. The past year was a year of laboring for the Lord and experiencing the faithfulness of His goodness. I am leaving with ever more desire to serve Him and seek His Kingdom and His righteousness. I am leaving realizing that the Word of God is a two edged sword and I...

When Empathy is not enough (a missionary musing)

W

Before coming to Uganda with my wife as missionaries, I served in Singapore for 2 ½ years.   Singapore was the first place where I served as a long term missionary.   Given that Singapore is well developed, you would think it was easy for me to transit, right?   Unfortunately, my experience was far from smooth.   My wife had to spend many nights listening...
