Since we are serving in Uganda for one year, we decided not to hop in and out of the country just to extend our visas.  Instead, we decided to go with an agency to help obtain a work visa for Wai Jia and a dependent pass for me.  Doing things the right way is sometimes long and expensive.  It took five months here and nine months in Singapore beforehand to compile all the necessary documents.  I...

Prayer is stupid

P

Prayer to us is not practical, it is stupid, and until we do see that prayer is stupid, stupid from the ordinary, natural, common sense point of view, we will never pray. But that is what Jesus says He will do. It sounds stupid, but it is a stupidity based on His redemption. The reason that our prayers are not answered is that we are not stupid enough to believe what Jesus says. It is a child...

Being In Christ

B

I wrote this post a few weeks ago.  It just took some time to publish it. Today’s morning prayer we studied Colossians 2:6-7.   Our homework from yesterday was to bring an object that symbolize this passage.  As each of us brought different items and explain to others what they stand for, someone brought this model to represent our walk with Christ.    So then, just as you received...

I lived in Hong Kong until I was eight before my family moved to Canada.  Hong Kong has a special place in my heart.  I have fond memories of my relatives and cousins gathering together during Chinese New Year and other holidays.  For Christmas, I would stay at my grandparents (my mother’s side).  They would put up a Christmas tree filled with ornaments.   One type of those ornaments was a...

Between knees and tears

B

I had a revelation a few weeks ago.  It came after praying with much fear and tribulation.  I usually don’t pray on my knees.  I only do so when I really need to hear from the Lord.  One time after such prayers, I had the following thoughts… How come I always have to beg the Lord to answer?  Doesn’t He understand my needs?  Can’t He feel I am in so much hurt? I am tired of praying like this...

Prayer and desire to be independent…

P

I will be honest. I am horrible at praying.  Especially to pray for a long time. My mind always drift off.  I sometimes fall asleep praying.  Sometimes I am too busy to pray. Actually there are many times I am too busy to pray. But since the beginning of this year, I am tired of not having a prayerful life. I remember sitting in the Bible School class in Cambodia last year...

Prayerful heart

P

It has been a while since I prayed like I did last night. It is one of those moments where I felt referesh after praying. Perhaps it is because of the busy-ness of going back to my routine back, I hadn’t spend as much quiet time. The quiet times are those I enjoy.  Especially when I am training.  Out on the road.  Even in the cold, the wind and in the snow. Though my body is...

Prayer

P

I help lead my congregation’s Wednesday Prayer Meeting. Recently, I gather different prayer request from different people…. Here’s one particularly touching: I am doing as usual. After 3 deadly treatment, doctor ordered not to continue because CT scan showed that the chemical didn’t work on my tumors, it will do more harm than treated. I had a lot of side effects but now...
