David’s Anointing

D

This post is more of a prelude to David coming into the scene in the Bible. His first famous achievement is defeating Goliath. I plan to go into that later, but I like to set up the stage on who David is. After God rejected Saul as King of Israel, God told Samuel to go to Bethlehem to anoint the new king. Samuel didn’t know who he is and obeyed God (1 Samuel 16:1) So it was, when they came, that...

Rush

Today I went to Toronto General Hospital to see my transplant doctor. Traveling from Mississauga, I rushed to downtown at 7:30 to make it to the 9:30 am appointment. Rush out the door and stuck in traffic.Rush to find a parking lot and run into the subway.Rush past people to check myself in at the Transplant Out-patient clinic. By the time I see my transplant doc, it was 12:30 pm. I was anxious...

Cliff’s guide on how to become a better paintball player

C

  Last week during church camp, some of the younger fellas (in their early 20s) asked me to join them to play paintball.  Growing up, I never played any team sports or considered myself athletic (I still don’t).  The first ‘sport’ I got into was paintball.  Though many do not considered as a sport, for me, it is the first sport I got serious (next to triathlon). Normally, I try to write a...

This blog is moving…..

T

Hi everyone, I want to thank you for reading and subscribing my blog all these years.  I am sure you noticed since I came to Singapore I hadn’t been as active in posting.  I apologize for that. I hope you find this blog an encouragement. I never consider myself much of a blogger.  This blog is more of a space for me to put down my own thoughts and convictions.  It is...

My Missionary Manual: So I send you

M

I picked this from my wife’s bookshelve when I first got married.  This is perhaps one of the best books I read on preparing as a missionary for a long time.  I always learn a lot from Oswald Chambers’ writings.  I read his devotions, My Utmost for His Highest, on a daily basis.  This book is deep and solid.  Some of the thoughts and wisdom behind it is so...

What does it mean to help the poor?

W

This has been the question on my mind for a while now…. Tomorrow, my wife and I will share about poverty to teenagers at a school.  As I am preparing my slides, I re-read When Helping Hurts: How to Alleviate Poverty without Hurting the Poor…and Yourself. The author used a classic illustration of how sometimes our good intentions might do more harm than help! And now we have come...

Six Months

S

A long overdue post. Sorry. Sometimes, the longer I don’t blog, the longer I don’t want to. It is probably because I feel like I missed so much already. But sometimes it is good to come back to an old habit that helps you jot down and reflect upon a portion of your life. Six months. I’ve been married for six months. I cannot imagine how things have changed so much in six months. As Wai Jia and I...

Following Jesus to Smokey Mountain

F

This is how wikipedia describes Smokey Mountain: Smokey Mountain is the term coined for a large landfill located in Manila, Philippines. The area was cleared decades ago and became the site of numerous public housings for the impoverished people living in the slums surrounding the landfill. The slums were also cleared, which was the home of 30,000 people that make their living from picking...

Lighten Your Load

L

A vivid dream from last night… I was in my highschool and I was cleaning up my locker.  The locker was shared with someone else.  While I was going which things I needed to pack, I noticed there were a large amount of Singaporean dollars.  Since we were in Canada and my locker partner had no use of Singapore dollars, I took it with me.  I put all my things in my bag...
