One Day Mission Trip

Date: 09.05.09 (Wesak Day)
Venue: Pulau Ketam
Time: 7.00am to 4.00pm

During the Timothy Youth Camp, Pastor Paul and me had a same view that we want to organize one mission trip for the youth. After discussion with Evangelism Department, Pastor Paul and me had decided to go to Pulau Ketam.

Why I choose Pulau Ketam?
I still remember last year the MMU+UKM Alumni total 18 people had organized two days one night student camp in Pulau Ketam primary school. I have one team with 10 students with me, even though I came to join them in the second day of the camp, but I still able to lead them and play the games with the students. I still remember one of my student, Jia Hui in this camp. The last day in the trip, I had visited Jia Hui's house and we got the chance to know more about Jia Hui family and talk with his mother. When Pastor Paul suggested to have one day mission trip, immediately I think about Pulau Ketam. I wish to go to Pulau Ketam to visit the students there.

On May 09, 2009, we had gather in JCBC at 7am. We go to Klang for Bak Kut Teh as our breakfast (I think it's a heavy breakfast for me). It's delicious! It's some where behind the "Fu Jian Hui Guan" called "Yong Kee Bak Kut Teh".

On 9.00am, we reach the new port to Pulau Ketam. We are so lucky the board came immediately we reached the port. Pay RM7 and slept for 30 minutes, we reached Pulau Ketam with fresh air and hot wind.

After group briefing, Hwe Hoe, Vernon and me in one group. The village had change after one year! I had lost my way to Jia Hui house. Praise Lord, the village is not too big. Finally, I found Jia Hui house and his mum is weaving the fishing net.

We have a drink with Jia Hui at the coffee house. He had become a boy now compared in primary school, he study at the secondary school and looks slim (he is a little fat boy last time and always ask me to buy ais cream for him). We have a great time together, Hwe Hoe and Vernon also shared some topics with him.

During the sharing, one voice had talk in my heart. Lord had prepared Jia Hui heart to receive the gift of eternal life.
I am not sure, but I believe Lord had made the way. With deep breath, I asked Jia Hui: May I share with you about God's Purpose in Your Life? He say yes. I started to share with him and he told me that he want to received Christ as his personal Saviour. I am so happy and surprise! I lead him in prayer and welcomed him to the Christ Family! Praise the Lord!

I don't know how to describe my happiness in words, but I am so happy and thanks Lord! I never think about Jia Hui will received Christ. Before this trip, Lord put Jia Hui in my heart and He want me to go to him. Now, I know why I am so eager to find Jia Hui house, because Lord had prepared his heart to receive Him.

One Day Mission Trip, with one person received Christ. It's a wonderful day for me, even though it's a HOT weather, but Lord had showered me with grace and blessing. It's enough for me! I pray to Lord, I will back to this place again! I believe the seed of gospel had already planted in Pulau Ketam.....
