Some prayer points are... A. Iban people/tribe

  • Pray against the spirit of pride amongst the Ibans (being the largest tribe in Sarawak) that the people will be humble to receive the word from the Lord. That God will use their sense of pride for them to stand up for the Word of the Lord and to not be ashamed of the gospel.
  • Pray that they will be a leading tribe in Sarawak & Malaysia to unite the body of Christ amongst all tribal groups in Malaysia. That they will fight for the rights of the Orang Asli in Malaysia, with God's leading.

Father's Day '09

The idea for an official Father’s Day celebration came to a married daughter, seated in a church in Spokane, Washington, attentive to a Sunday sermon on Mother’s Day in 1910-two years after the first Mother’s Day observance in West Virginia.
The daughter was Mrs. Sonora Smart Dodd. During the sermon, which extolled maternal sacrifices made for children, Mrs. Dodd realized that in her own family it had been her father, William Jackson Smart, a Civil War veteran, who had sacrificed-raising herself and five sons alone, following the early death of his wife in childbirth. For Mrs. Dodd, the hardships her father had endured on their eastern Washington farm called to mind the unsung feats of fathers everywhere.
Her proposed local Father’s Day celebration received strong support from the town’s ministers and members of the Spokane YMCA. The date suggested for the festivities, June 5, Mrs. Dodd’s father’s birthdays was three weeks away-had to be moved back to the nineteenth when ministers claimed they need extra time to prepare sermons on such a new subject as Father's Day. Newspapers across the country, already endorsing the need for a national Mother’s Day, carried stories about the unique Spokane observance. Interest in Father’s Day increased. Among the first notables to support Mrs. Dodd’s idea nationally was the orator and political leader William Jennings Bryan, who also backed Mother’s Day. Believing that fathers must not be slighted, he wrote to Mrs. Dodd, "too much emphasis cannot be placed upon the relation between parent and child."
Father’s Day, however, was not so quickly accepted as Mother’s Day. Members of the all-male Congress felt that a move to proclaim the day official might be interpreted as a self-congratulatory pat on the back.
In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson and his family personally observed the day. And in 1924, President Calvin Coolidge recommended that states, if they wished, should hold their own Father’s Day observances. He wrote to the nation’s governors that "the widespread observance of this occasion is calculated to establish more intimate relations between fathers and their children, and also to impress upon fathers the full measure of their obligations."
Many people attempted to secure official recognition for Father’s Day. One of the most notable efforts was made in 1957, by Senator Margaret Chase Smith, who wrote forcefully to Congress that "Either we honor both our parents, mother and father, or let us desist from honoring either one. But to single out just one of our two parents and omit the other is the most grievous insult imaginable."
Eventually, in 1972-sixty-two years after it was proposed-Father’s Day was permanently established by President Richard Nixon. Historians seeking an ancient precedent for an official Father’s Day observance have come up with only one: The Romans, every February, honored fathers-but only those deceased.

Well,now that you've read that...I'd like to add my own statements (:
I'd like to...thank my dad for all his contributions to our family...despite the fact that he's not highly qualified or anything,he's still slogged on,day and night,to feed his family and also to make an impact,a contribution,to society.He may not have a very high-paying job,but it's alright I guess.At least he's faithful in whatever he does.Someday I will rise above this trial...I promise.
I'd also like to extend my condolences to those who have...lost their dads in one way or another,whether it is through divorce,or death.Stay'll make it through this trial.The unending road that leads to the greater heights.Especially for Von,Su,Jamie-sensei....keep holding on to your dreams...never give in,never let hope fade away ;D.
For those of us who still have fathers,cherish them.Disagreements are normal,but DON'T EVER DISRESPECT HIM.
Happy Father's Day =) (kinda late tho...)

Baptism(23/05/2009).I died.

Yay.I got baptised at church yesterday,during the service.Of course,I was not the only individual who entered the water.There were about 40+ of us.The baptismal service is usually held on a Sunday,but since the majority of those getting baptised this round were youth,they held it on a Saturday,as our youth group meeting's held on that day
The Reverend conducting the ceremony(a guest from another church) couldn't pronounce Chinese names properly,so those of us in the line had a good laugh whenever he pronounced the name of one of our friends wrongly.Haha.
And the majority of us were nervous to the core.It's public,after all.Cracking jokes and stuff
Example 1
Amanda:Sarah's the last person.OMG,hehe.
Jon:The last person to go in will be lucky.She's gonna receive all the "blessing"...from the others who went in earlier."Clean water" xD
Example 2:
Amanda:Does anyone have the flu?
Hannah:Swine flu!Swine flu!
Everyone:Laughing even more.
Example 3:
Vincent/Jon:Don't forget to remove your handphones from your pockets.
Amanda:Nah,if it gets drenched,we'll have holy phones.
Me:Yah,and the ringtone will echo Handel's Messiah(starts singing)
I was running around barefooted before the service xD.Cuz i had no slippers,and my shoes were in the locker.Begging for shoes on purpose just to annoy people.
Me:Please help....need shoes...will work for shoes(grovelling at Daniel Yeap's feet)
Daniel yeap:No!Shoo,go away you filthy creature!
And when I entered the water...oh my goodness.It was so....COLD after that.Well,the water itself was fine,but when I emerged I was freezing my arse off.
Oh,and we also became official members of DUMC.Had to take a pledge of sorts on the stage. (:
Overall,it was fun,but super tiring.I slept at 11:30 pm,which is early for me.Teehee.
