Reflections on Missions Trip

Have been wanting to do a short reflection on the missions trip. But very tired right now. Hmm. Time management, man. Anyway, the team'll be gathering again at Julian & Serene's place in Ang Mo Kio on Wednesday evening to do a final debrief. :)

Personally, I guess the most memorable and meaningful experience was the last day of ministering - where I was talking with Mesa, our Cambodian translator, and I had prayed for him. We were chatting after that, when I sensed the Spirit telling me to pray some more for his family.

So I asked him whether I can pray for his family, and from the way he nodded, it was clear that he really was burdened for his family to come to know Christ. As we began to pray, he knelt down, seemingly oblivious to the other bros and sisters milling around doing their own stuff. So I decided to join him there on the floor.

And we prayed, and lifted his family to the Lord in prayer.

Thank God for the deep joy of being able to pray together with a fellow bro in Christ. In Christ, there's really no difference - no longer Cambodian or Singaporean, but simply as fellow brothers with one Father. :)

Edited to add:
Whoa... is this 'coincidence' or what? Just saw this verse on's home page right after finishing the above post:

"You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus." - Galatians 3:26-28

Hee! Think God's adding His own words here (and saying, "Here's looking at you, kid!") :D Thanks, Pa!
