It has been an exciting time at Orientation... Our heartbeat is for the overseas students, so we won't give up till we step down or leave i guess?
Booths everyday and potluck dinner, followed by Victor Harbor and Goowa Beach trip. Then the next week Welcome Night and Captain Ball!
Somehow, still alot of fears that the centre won't do as well, or that we're not making wise enough decisions, which will have negative consequences. But... that's the whole point of ministry isn't it? Imperfect ppl, serving and partnering a perfect God. As long as we keep trying to learn and wait upon him and lovelovelove... we're on the right track.
Such an exciting time... Giving up sleep, but trying to bring everything together, and at the same time see how to let ppl get excited about what they're excited about in serving. God has added alot of other excitements along the way. Close friends know... haha.
One thing to note tho'. I must have a healthy balance! Priorities for the season... Ministry of cos, along with time in the word and prayer even if its at unearthly hours everyday, time for studying is a solace, time with friends and coursemates, lotsa exercise, family, and... i must COOK and make desserts!!! Alot of nice lights and stars this period too..
and... i'm trying to get to know special ppl much better. heh. i'm enjoying it :)
2Cor6:4-10 is my fav for this season.
Rather, as servants of God we commend ourselves in every way: in great endurance; in troubles, hardships and distresses, in beatings, imprisonments and riots; in hard work, sleepless nights and hunger; in purity, understanding, patience and kindness; in the Holy Spirit, and in sincere love; in truthful speech and in the power of God; with weapons of righteousness in the right hand and in the left; through glory and dishonour, bad report and good report; genuine, yet regarded as imposters; known yet regarded as unknown; dying, and yet we live on; beaten, and yet not killed; sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; poor, yet making many rich; having nothing, and yet possessing everything.
