这考试。。。真的太感动了。。。 This test… it is most touching…

每一次报告要全教会考试时都会“抗议声四起”,大家都会紧张、压力、害怕,总偷偷希望会延迟,甚至取消。。。
但大家也知道无法幸免。。。然后大家都会很用心准备,基本上大家还是都来了。。。
看看以下考试的画面,你哪能不惊叹?你哪能不感动?
。。。你哪能不爱这教会,这一群单纯可爱的羊?

Each time I announce there is going to be a Bible test for the whole church, there will be lots of “protests”,
everyone would feel nervous, under pressure, afraid, and secretly wish the test would be postponed or even cancelled…
But each time they all know they cannot escape this… then they would all study very hard, and basically all would turn up still…
Just look at the pictures below, how can you not be impressed? How can you not be touched?
… How can you not love this church, this bunch of innocent and adorable sheep?

大家都坐在地上考,所以要自己“乔”最舒服的姿势。。。
All sat on the floor for the test, so you had to adjust for yourself the most comfortable position…

有些脚都没地方放。。。
Some had no space to stretch their legs…

有些不知何故考到站起来,或没空间坐。。。?
Some don’t know why stood up half way through the test or they had no space to sit down…?

年长的有得坐。。。
The elderly had seats…

几乎全教会都来考了。。。有年长婆婆级的。。。
Just about the whole church came for the test… the elderly of grandma category…

也有公公级的。。。
and the grand-dad category…

做爸爸的。。。
the daddies…

也有做妈妈的。。。
and the mothers…

还有小孩。。。
and the kids…

身体不太舒服还是来考。。。
Even when not feeling well, they would still come…

顽皮的也乖乖来考。。。
The naughty ones would come obediently too…

他们可都是很认真哦,不会输给全国大考,都会仔细看清楚题目。。。
And they were all very serious, not unlike our national exam, they would read the questions carefully…

有些考到胡须都长出来了。。。
Some sat till their beard started to grow…

有些考到没脸见人。。。
Some till they couldn’t face anyone…

有些。。。咦?怎么这个的考卷跟大家的都不一样。。。?
And some… huh? How come this paper is different from the rest…?

考完了围着牧师看他改前面几张考卷。。。
After the exam, surrounding Pastor to see him mark the first few few papers…

然后非常在乎自己的成绩怎么样。。。
Then all very concerned about own results…

这么一个认真、顺服、同心、喜乐的教会。。。你告诉我,你能不爱这教会吗?
Such a serious, submissive, united, joyful church… you tell me, can you not love this church?

更重要的是灵魂得救、人得造就。。。 More importantly, souls are saved and people edified…

我认为造型好看固然重要因为会让人看得舒服,给人好印象,人也会认为你认真、尊重场面和服事。。。
但一切的造型和“打扮”和外在准备过后,更重要的是灵里面的装备,祷告、寻求神等等。。。
再好看,再吸引人,若没恩膏,没圣灵的感动也没有用的。。。
最终要看到的就是灵魂得救、人得造就、唯独主名得荣耀。。。阿们!

I think a pleasant image is definitely important because it makes people feel comfortable, give people good impression,
and people will think you are serious and you respect the function and your serving…
But after all the image styling, “make-up” and outward preparation, what is even more important is spiritual preparation, prayer, seeking the Lord etc…
However nice-looking and attractive, without anointing and conviction of the Holy Spirit, everything will be useless…
Ultimately what we want to see is souls getting saved, people edified and only God’s name be glorified… Amen!

蒙恩教会是新教会,特别是中文部才刚成立,能有那么多人出席真值得鼓励。。。
Blessed Grace is a new church especially the Chinese congregation was just started a while ago, they must be complemented to have such crowd…

我发现新加坡的庄稼已熟,每次呼召就会看到人涌上来接受主。。。
I discover the harvest is ripe in Singapore, each time we give an altar call, we will see many coming forward to receive the Lord…

往往呼召时我不会急,我会一直给机会,一直等,因为有好些人需要多次鼓励才有勇气上来。。。
Often I am not in a hurry when giving an altar call, I will always give chances and keep waiting because some people really need more encouragement before they are bold enough to come up…

最感人的画面就是人悔改信主的画面。。。
The most touching picture is when people repent and believe in the Lord…

第一次到新生命中心。。。会不会有第二次啊?哈哈。。。
First time to Centre of New Life… is there a second time? Haha…

主任牧师告诉我说,对他们教会来讲,一下子这样多人上来信主是少见的。。。但愿过后就成为常见的吧,阿们!
The Senior Pastor told me, to their church, it is quite rare to see so many coming forward to receive the Lord at one time… may this become something common, Amen!

我也是第一次到恩群教会,感觉有点像多年前的我们。。。
My first time to En Community Church as well, the feeling was like our church many years back…

他们那晚的聚会是奋兴会,以激励基督徒为目标。。。感谢主好多都回应说愿意事奉神。。。
Their meeting that night was revival meeting, the purpose was to encourage Christians… Thank God many responded to the call of serving God…

新加坡留影:我和007牧师。。。 Images in Singapore: Pastor James Bond Lee and I…

这是1月30日在新加坡蒙恩教会拍的。。。
These were taken in Blessed Grace Church Singapore on Jan 30th…

007牧师欢迎我上台,交待几件重要的事,告诉我什么可以做、什么不可以做。。。
Ps Bond welcomed me on stage, briefing me on a few important things, what I can do, what I cannot do…

交待了,他还是很不放心,怕我乱乱来,所以在旁边监视。。。
After briefing me, he was still very concerned, scared that I would break the rules, so monitoring me from the side…

最后他说我成功过关,哈哈。。。
In the end he said I passed, haha…

回家真好。。。去游泳。。。 So good to be home… went swimming…

嗨,大家好,我终于从新加坡回来了。。。在新加坡那么多朋友,又能服事神、救灵魂等等,当然很快乐也很蒙福。。。但回家的感觉就是不一样。。。
Hi, everyone, finally I’ve returned from Singapore… I have so many friends in Singapore, and I could serve God there, save souls etc, so of course I was very happy there and was very blessed too… but the feeling of coming home is always very different…

再看看熟悉的环境。。。
Surveying the familiar surrounding again…

很有满足感的一笑。。。
A very satisfied smile…

哇,真的好舒服的地方。。。
Wow, really a very comfortable place…

今天古晋天气有点热。。。
Today’s weather is rather warm in Kuching…

小睡午觉过后,朋友邀我去游泳,虽然刚回来还有点累,我也答应了。。。
After taking a short nap, friends asked me to go for a swim, though still tired from the trip, I obliged…

我游泳的照片。。。哇,好牺牲哦。。。哈哈!
My swimming photo… wow, so sacrificial… haha!

其实也没看到什么,哈哈。。。但我还有好几张在游泳池里的照片耶,你们要看吗?哈哈哈!但要那么牺牲一定要很多人要求吧?就看反应如何吧。。。哈哈哈哈。。。
Actually could not see much, haha… but I still have quite a few photos taken in the swimming pool, you want to see? Hahaha! But to sacrifice so, we must have many requests, right? So we’ll see how the response is… hahahaha….

一张很好看的照片。。。 A very nice-looking photo…

我觉得这张照片很好看,你们觉得呢?这是我“最新出炉”的照片,昨晚在新加坡恩群教会事奉过后吃宵夜时拍的。。。先放这张上来跟大家分享一下,其他的会随之而来。。。
I think this photo is very nice, what do you think? This is my “latest” photo, taken last night at supper after ministering at Singapore’s En Community Church… I uploaded this photo first to share with you all, more will come later…

你们知道左边那位帅哥是谁吗?他还“非常”单身哦,哈哈。。。
祖和右边的姑娘不必介绍了。。。
他们三个都结成好朋友,而且这几天都很同心的跟我搭配一起事奉,那是最美的部分。。。

Do you know who that handsome guy on the left is? And he is still single and very available, haha….
Jaydon and the lady on the right do not need any introduction…
The three of them have become good friends, and serving with one heart with me past few days, that is the most beautiful part…

我终于恢复跑步了。。。 I’ve finally resumed jogging…

自从去年6月运动会过后,我就停止跑步了。。。
Since the sports day in June last year, I had stopped jogging…
FED_0169

可是感谢主,今天我终于恢复跑步了。。。
But thank God, I’ve finally resumed jogging again today…
FED_0170

停止跑步有几个原因:运动会后脚受伤了、当时要比赛所以较积极、当时有人陪我训练、停久了也变懒了,等等。。。但我恢复奔跑了。。。
I stopped jogging for a few reasons: my knees were injured after the sports day, due to competition then so more diligent, at that time I had company training with me too, and after stopping for a while you would become lazy too, etc… But I have resumed…
FED_0212

为什么恢复呢?哈哈,不是运动会又要到了。。。也有好些原因:为健康啊、可以减肥啊、而且下个礼拜就要到新加坡录新唱片和布道,状况要好,气要足啊。。。但才刚开始跑,不知来得及吗???
Why did I resume? Haha, it’s not because our sports day is coming again… thare are various reasons too: for health, to lose weight, and next week I’m going to Singapore to record a new album and minister, so I must be in top condition and have enough breath… But I have just started, wonder whether it’s already too late???
FED_0214

其实我们应当一生都奔跑在主的道路上,一个人的时候也好,有伴的时候也好,一定要忠心奔跑直到见主面。。。
In fact we should always be running on God’s path, be it when you are alone or when you have company, we must run on faithfully till we see God’s face…

每个人都有不同的支持者或“粉丝”。。。看看我跟例外人团长祖的粉丝有何不同吧。。。
Everyone has different supporters or “fans”… let’s see what’s the difference between my fans and Remnant’s leader Jaydon’s fans…

少年团让我改观。。。 The Youth Fellowship changed my thinking…

近一两年来,我一直跟少团高团长说少年团灵命似乎没什么成长,每一次来少团聚会观察总觉得他们很多方面不够认真、不积极,很不成熟等等。。。

我也常跟伟宏讨论少团问题到底出在哪里,说我们一定要有什么样的调整和改善等等。。。我几次跟伟宏说我可能要来个“大变动”试试看。。。

伟宏也倍感压力、无奈、无助。。。该做的都尽量做,祷告也祷告过了,可是就没看到情形有所改善。。。
他“求”我再给他机会和时间试试看。。。别误会,我可没要开除他哦!只是当时想要来个大变动。。。

我基于忙碌,也看到高团长的诚恳,就“耽搁”我的计划没行动。。。结果。。。感谢主!神的时间到了!

从参加了这一次刚过的12月的少年营会和前一个星期五(1月1号)的少年“四季”团契聚会,我改观了!我看到少年人的认真、积极、摆上。。。感觉上他们长大了。。。我很感动!

所以,少年人,要珍惜此刻,继续向上、向前进,愿神继续膏抹和与你们同在,阿们!

For the past recent one or two years, I have been telling our Youth leader David Koh that the Youth Fellowships’s spiritual life did not seem to be growing, each time I came to observe their meeting, I would always notice that the youths did not seem serious, were not motivated and seemed very immature etc…

I often discussed with David what actually the problem with the Youth Fellowship was, and said we must have some kind of adjustment and improvement and so on… a few times I told him I am going to have a “big shaking” to try out…

David also felt the tremendous pressure, frustration, helplessness too… he did what he ought, he prayed, but the situation did not seem to be improving…
He “pleaded” with me to give him another chance and some time to try again… Don’t misunderstand me, I wasn’t going to fire him! Was just planning on a big shake-up…

Due to my busy-ness, and also seeing David’s sincerity, I delayed activating my “project”… the result… Praise the Lord! The timing of God has come!

After joining the recent Youth Camp in December and the Youth meeting on Jan 1st with the theme “Four Seasons”, I have changed my thinking! I saw the seriousness, motivation, sacrifice of the youths… I feel that they have grown… I’m very touched!

So youths, treasure the moment, keep moving up and moving forward, may God continue to anoint and be with you, Amen!

以下是几张“四季”聚会所拍摄的照片。。。
The following are some photos from their “Four Seasons” meeting…

1月1日,2010年第一个少团聚会,他们以四季为主题,每个组长带着一些组员把教会“打扮”成春、夏、秋、冬。。。
Jan 1st, the first Youth meeting of the year 2010, they had the theme “Four Seasons” for their meeting, every leader together with some members decorated the church into spring, summer, autumn and winter…

少年人被吩咐按自己选择穿其中一个季节的服装来教会。。。
The youths were instructed to choose to wear the attire of one of the seasons to come to church…
_MG_0238

他们还真的很认真哦,有好些还穿冬装哦!走在街上不知会不会给人抓去精神病院。。。
And they were very serious about it, some even had winter wear on! Wonder whether they would be taken to the mental hospital if they were wearing that in the street…
_MG_0413

当晚其中一个节目是交换礼物。。。最怕换到自己不喜欢的东西,而且这种情形还蛮平常的。。。
One of the programmes was exchanging of gifts… most afraid of getting what you don’t like, yet that seems to be quite often the case…
_MG_0244

当然没忘了一定要赞美敬拜主。。。
Of course must not forget to praise and worship the Lord…
_MG_0414

当晚的气氛很温馨、喜乐和感人。。。
The atmosphere was cosy, joyful and touching that night…
_MG_0320

老实说,我一走进来,看到他们的设计时,还真被他们的创意吓了一跳。。。心里顿时想,不知青年团做得到这么好吗?
Honestly, as I stepped in and saw their designs, I was really “shocked” by their creativity… and I immediately thought whether the Young Adults’ Fellowship could do as good…
_MG_0264

我就马上联络一些青年人,叫他们一定要来看。。。咦?左边两个明明是少团的,干嘛挤进来跟我们拍照?
I immediately contacted some young adults to come and have a look… Huh? The two on the left are obviously from the Youths, why did you squeeze into this photo?
Untitled-8

把少年人带领的那么好,我当然要谢谢和鼓励我们忠心的高团长啦。。。嗯。。。伟宏啊,您的造型。。。还有身材真的有待改善啊。。。要不然,搞不好人家还以为少团团长是我耶。。。
And of course I must thank and encourage our faithful Youth leader for leading the youths so well… Err… David, as for your image… and your physique… I think they can certainly be improved… otherwise some might misunderstand that I’m the Youth leader…
