Speaking of Adventure Camp, haha I JUST CAME BACK FROM DARE ADVENTURE CAMP!!! (8th - 11th June) WHOO HOO! Gosh, it was my first adventure camp. And what an experience indeed. At times, it was uncomfortable because it was like dying to flesh. The camp was so out of my comfort zone! To lead my group running for about 2.5 km to rescue our mascot (for someone like me, who failed 2.4km last time), to dive into the sauce pool full of oil, scrambled eggs, foul-smelling sauce and other gross contents... it was so not me! I was someone who detested outdoor camps, sweating it out under the sun... and I can't believe it, I really did enjoy the camp alot! There were times that I felt so inadequate to lead the group, but I kept learning, throughout the camp, that it was not about me... but all about God.
Nothing to do with me, but everything to do with Him.
During the first night of the camp, Pastor Daniel asked all the leaders to go out and pray for the youths, but I didn't go forth. To tell the truth, I was afraid. I did not know what to do, what to say, and how to pray for the youths. I felt condemned, but I thank God it was for awhile only. Cos' I was gently reminded by Daddy God that my job is just to avail myself to Daddy God and He will do the praying. He will put words of wisdom in my mouth and it's His anointing that will touch lives. All I have to do is to follow his leading. Wow. And guess what? I thought I missed the opportunity but nooo, Daddy is so good.
On the second night, Pastor Dan asked for the leaders to come up and he prayed a short but powerful prayer over every single one of us. He prayed for a new anointing to come over me. After I got up, he asked all of us to go among the youths, to lay hands on them with anointing oil. I was like, stunned... but remembered that I told God I want to follow his leading. So I did... and it was awesome. The first two precious girls that I prayed for were slained. I was shocked. I used to be hesitant about praying for people because I thought I couldn't. I had no confidence but now I realised it really has nothing to do with me or whatsoever. When you avail yourself, just let God flow in you. And you will witness such wonder. I moved on and prayed for a few more girls and I was amazed at what God spoke to them. One sobbed, totally touched by the anointing of God. God is so real man!I was really touched by what the youths shared with me during section fellowshipping. The things they shared were astounding. Beverly, Sam, Rosabelle, Kezia, Jolyn and the rest... I was really amazed at their level of maturity and at what God was doing in their life. I actually teared at one part of their testimony sharing. It has to do with giving tuition to them right after my exams. Immediately after my exams was their exams, and that was why I didn't have much time to help them. Only about one to two days. And I was wondering even why am I even offering to help them. I didn't think that it will make much difference at all. But gosh, even now as I'm typing this, I remembered saying a prayer over the youths at the start of tuition. And God really did come true for us during the little time I had; Kezia and Rosabelle testified to that during the Adventure Camp. Rosabelle scored extremely high for those science questions stating that what I taught her came out! And Kezia told me before the tuition, she will fail her science. But after tuition, she scored for science because the topics that I went through actually came out! I was just wowed away by what God did.
the beauty exposed ;
