Would like to thank all the CG facilitators that helped out with the sessions and discussions, as well as everyone who served throughout the 6 weeks, in Welcome/Snacks, Worship, Word, prayer, inviting friends, etc. Also really encouraged by the commitment and enthusiasm of our new friends, Demin, Mirzi, Carmela, Jennifer, Serena, who came down for most, if not all, the 6 weeks faithfully.

It was Mei Xuan's last Sunday with us as she was returning to UK for studies on Friday morning.

YA Captain's Ball 2 (We won 3rd prize!)

We came, we saw, we conquered! Well, 3rd prize, that is. Considering that we won 2 years ago, when our group was the youngest, and last year 4th (out of 6), this year's 3rd place out of 8 teams, us being the oldest group, is quite an achievement. Hooray! Our prize was a $40 Swenson's voucher, which we'll probably use for our Social Gathering on 29th Sep at Zhenghui and Renzi's place. Warm welcome to more new friends who came today, Calvin and Fuwei (+ Teck, Hanqiang, Grace and Qisi). A couple of us went for an early dinner at a nearby hawker centre after the tournament. Enjoy the pics and vid clips.

We also celebrated the birthdays of Heather, Yewya (and Abrie).

Email update from Xinmin

(top row standing, 3rd from left)

Sorry for missing in action for such a long time. Has been busy lately with my work and the day-to-day stuffs.

Well, God has been good. I'm sorta settled down in my church in Perth, joined the young adults group and am currently serving in the music ministry. I have attached a picture of the young adults outing to Joondalup Mini-golf club. Was fun and thank God that I managed to bring a colleague to join us for that event as well.

Work has started to take its toil, not in terms of hours but handling of the Aussie Culture. However thank God for his guidance and I guess I have learnt not to concentrate so much on work but on building relationship with people around me. Am trying to reach out to 2 of my colleagues, one from Malaysia and one from Mauritius. Pray that I would be a good testimony to them. At the same time, am really encouraged that my ex-manager from Singapore has been going to church constantly. While she is open to the gospel, she is still in the midst of searching. Just pray for her that God will speak to her and that one day she will give her heart to our God and saviour.

With the more time on hand, I finally have time to read up on Christian literature, something that I have not done for a long.... time. Will update you guys when I have the chance.

That's all for now. Am really thankful for God's provision for our cell group at BCC. Pray that all of us will continue to work faithfully for God's ministry.

See you guys when I come back in December.

Combined CG gathering

We had a great time of makan, fellowship, catching up with each other tonight at our Combined CG gathering. Was blessed as we worshipped and gave God the praise and glory for who He is and how He has lead us as CGs thus far. Reminded me of His hand in guiding us these past 2.5 years. Also was greatly encouraged by sharings from Amilyn, Eddie and Hongmei, to see and hear that what we seek to be in CG makes a difference. Tim and Wenxing shared about how the Lord has been guiding the CGs the past 2-3 months, and what lies ahead this year. We ended the time with sharing and praying in pairs (1 from each CG), and also praying for Wenxing and Nat as they continue and commit to serve as CGLs this year and beyond. May God continue to bless and grow them as leaders to lead with passion, vision, and love.

Friday, July 21, 2006

Beta finale

We had our last session on Beta 12 today. Spent an extended time sharing what we had learnt and applied through the Beta course. Prayed for one another too. Spent some time at the end of CG to pray for Joy, who will be away from 27-30 Jul in Indonesia for a medical mission. Pray for safety as they travel and wisdom and love as they minister to the locals. We also prayed for the situation in Israel, for God's purposes and peace to prevail in the Middle East.

Fire Conference (Reinhard Bonnke)

About half the CG attended the Fire Conference Night Rally where we were truly blessed, a time of awesome worship led by Paul Baloche, and the challenging message and testimony of Reinhard Bonnke. The thing that impacted me the most was his contagious passion and utmost conviction of the power of the gospel to save for everyone who believes (Rom 1:16). Here is the notes for his simple but compelling sermon.

Global Day of Prayer 2006

Met Joy, Heather, Meifong, Nathaniel at Kallang MRT around 5.30pm. Took the shuttle bus with 1st batch, Filipino members, sat at center right column facing the stage. Each of us were given a GDOP pack containing a nation flag, water, biscuits and prayer booklet. It was a good time of worshipping and praying to the Lord, as the pastors led us through different segments of prayer for nations, country, youth, etc. 11 of us from our 2 CGs attended, all in all about 25-30 Bartleyans. Let us continue to intercede and stand in the gap for our nation and the nations!

Sin Ming: Greetings from Down Under

Hi everyone,

Well, thanks for your prayers. I am doing well so far. The weather has been good for the past week. Actually managed to get quite a couple of things done including buying furnitures and settling some of my administrative stuffs. Now waiting for furnitures to come in and in the mean time trying to buy a car. Hiring one at the moment.

Many blessings to count actually. Firstly, how I got around Perth safely and how I got to church safely on Sunday. My church has moved house thus was going round and round looking for it. Finally decided that this is too much of a hassle and parked my car and started walking to church instead. It is nice indeed to meet up with my church mates again although many things seems to have changed...

On the whole, I am doing fine and well. Work is starting only next week. Will keep you guys updated.

Bday dinner with friends

Had a bday dinner with friends on Sunday. Was a good time, making takopochi balls, watching NBA All-Star weekend, half of Moulin Rouge, and table soccer competition (which the guys won*! :p) I thank God for the gift and blessing of friendship, and the community of believers, united together as one in the body of Christ. That's one of the greatest blessings I thank God for this year - you! All of you have made an impact and influence on my life. Thank God for His grace and love in the past year.
