Heading Off North: Step-Up Programme


This weekend, I will be heading north to Gopeng as one of the speakers for my church's vacation bible school, Step-Up Programme, designed for school leavers. I have been assigned to cover New Testament Survey in 5 hours - and I am still struggling how to do that within the time allocated.

I hope to have a good time with a group of 16 young people and trust that something good will come out of this training programme. May their intellectual mind be challenged, passion and zeal for the gospel renewed, and love for the Lord deepened.

I went there last year for a course that was held. It's really a nice place for relaxation.

Hope that you can have a nice trip...

Desmond,
Thanks.

I really wish it is a relaxation trip, and not a working trip... :-)

Great project for the Lord, as teaching youths in Malaysia, NT survey, has become such wild endeavour...

Ha, God bless..

What a great way of initiation into the working world. It makes me think some of us need to have a "halfway house"!! LOL ... and we'll let you have 10 hours on NT.

(Word verification for 2009 is getting there -- I got "blessing" here! Wow.)

Gopeng is pretty well-known for bird watching! Other than 'work', don't forget to real birds and I mean hornbills!!

Dear Sceptics,

Thanks - I had a good time with this group of young adults! Great bunch

Hi Alex,
Thanks for this. I am honoured

Hi Pearlie,
You sure 10 hours is enough? I had difficulty even to even reach up to Revelation in a 42 hour 3-credit semester course....Hahaha
