After 8 years of being a CGL, I made a tough but necessary decision to step down in 2014 as it was a different season of my life where our kids were young and I do not think that I can give the best to everyone. Although I tried attending CG for a while but things just did not work out as the kids will be asking for my attention and disrupting the atmosphere and other members.
Today, we are happy to call S66 our spiritual family since late 2015. We feel right at home…there are friends whom we can connect with since there are quite a number of us who are “old-timers”. KH always like to say that the CG is 卧虎藏龙 because there are so many ex leaders.
You probably feel intimidated by the sheer troupe of adults and kids. For some, they find us too rowdy, noisy and cannot understand how some of our members can fellowship till past midnight after CG at e CGL place. You don’t have to understand us but you just need to experience us, that is my personal opinion .
You can rest here but after that your ship need to set sail…
Standing in the gap and rising to the call at the most inconvenient time…
Stepping out and heeding to the call…
We made many friends here and are happy to call S66 our home…
Do not be overly concerned with the numbers but the potential of the people in the group…
These are some of the quotes that my fellow members expressed last night during our annual thanksgiving. Many shared that 2017 was not a great year, for some, it was tough year where their breakthroughs have not yet been seen…for some, there were health issues to worry about, relationship with children to ponder over… as KH said, 2017 was a year of GRACE.. despite all that, we still come together every bi-monthky to have CG. The younger ones will have children church ~ conducted and rotated among the parents while the tweets have the youth leader to come and share with them.
Because of them, they have made me a better person; they showed love, they do love and they poured love to others. We do life together. It is never about how many houses we have, what kind of property we live in, what car we drive or what holiday we go. It has always been about God,His people and His kingdom.
The CG didn’t start off with all glam almost 6 years ago. KH and June stepped up to the call in one of the most difficult time of the church and they ever shared that there as one CG where only 1 member turned up. They sought the Lord, had a relevation and bam…here is e big family of S66.
Yesterday thanksgiving was one where we really appreciated one another… Pris who organise the event…Dr David and Angie for opening up their place…Renee helped with goody bag for the kids…Charis and Angie who spent time and effort in the deco…Merv our ever faithful photographer…Sophia always the one who will take pic of every family sharing.. You guys are just awesome!
I always tell Lynn G “what will we do without her?” She is one amazing lady who just have the power and anointing to connect and bring people together. We had to release her to another CG to be blessing and for her and Mike to fulfil their destiny and I know that greater things in store for both of them in 2018.
If you think that all is solemn and serious,you are wrong! We are a bunch of adults,family with kids who are Not Boring! We had a thanksgiving theme – Royalty aka Kings and Queens, Princesses and Princes and everyone rose to the occasion and came supportive of the event.
What have I learned from this bunch of awesome and God loving people?
1. Be warm ~ it was this human touch that made us feel welcome.
2. Be real ~ Relax and be you. We are not perfect and work in progress.
3. Be there ~ It may not be possible for us to always be physically present but we are always a text, a prayer,a phone call away and we never be too busy to even just send a text. Your one text, prayer and phone call can bring faith, strength and courage.
Thank you for being our friends here in this seson of our life. While I know that this is where God puts us for this season, we are thankful and grateful to so of you in one way or another. Let’s run this race and do life together!
