Day 7: Completed the KL Week! On to Singapore

Time flies when you're having fun serving Jesus!

We have completed a week of ministry in K.L. Malaysia and God has brought us safely to Singapore! We are thankful God created rest to which the team took advantage of on the bus ride from Malaysia to Singapore.

We enjoyed dinner at a Hawker Centre reminiscing fun memories from our week in K.L. Malaysia. I really enjoyed chatting with Martha over a bowl of noodles about how I've seen God work here in SEA over the past six years! Martha and I first met here as fellow CI teacher in 2010.

Our rest day ended with a "Pajama Party!" Guys and girls separated for sharing what we like to call, "pain and gain". A time of fellowship but also a time to be open, honest, and vulnerable with the team about our personal character weaknesses. Our culture as a CI team is to create environments for tough and sometimes uncomfortable topics to be shared and discussed for the purpose of personal evaluation and the building up of the Body of Christ. "For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was." James 1:23-24 Kind character critiques and praise from others allows us to see more of who we really are and areas we need to seek Christ to conform to His image.

Please pray for us as we start another week of CI in Singapore. We are all physically tired but encouraged knowing our work has not been in vain. May Jesus Christ use us as willing vessels moldable and ready to do His will.
