Thanksgiving for God's Provision

In the runway towards the CI, God has answered EACH prayer. A couple of months ago, we needed more teachers to sign up. Today, we have a total of 29 teachers for the Kuala Lumpur week, one of our biggest teams yet!

With teachers in place, our next matter of importance was the number of children in each seminar. We have been praying for the numbers to grow and things looked impossible. It had been a lesson on prayer & trust that God was in charge and we are not in control.

Today, we found out that we have 60 students! Praise the LORD! Next up, another thing God provided is a brand new theme this year called the Power of God, an exciting and relevant curriculum written by IBLP Taiwan. 

To see it all coming together was amazing. We all gathered in my home. Team members from Malaysia, Indonesia & Singapore rolled in. The excitement was filling the air! It was awesome receiving each team member, people we have prayed for and God has provided :)

We went through a time for the team to understand what the trip will be spiritually as well as holistically. (More of that to be shared here on the blog!). That very night, everyone participated in a Simulation of a Children’s Institute small group. Over the years, we have found that simulations REALLY get everyone into the “mood” of the Children’s Institute and prepares you for what you’re in for! (And starts you praying and preparing more than you did before the trip!)

Everyone was already bonding by the end of the night and we look forward to tomorrow!

To end off my thoughts at the start of CI 2015, I think it is necessary to step back and praise our amazing God who has brought us together 

"Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth." Psalm 46

This year more than ever, I cannot help but see that He is orchestrating every single detail this trip. From insufficient teachers, insufficient students, to the biggest team we’ve had in KL. Wow, praise the Lord! He’s got this, and He is in control. I’m so excited to begin a 3 week journey with our team, learning to love the Lord with all our heart, mind, soul & strength.

To God be the glory always!
