I'm still thinking of writing about SUSOM journal style or normal style? Never mind, I'll try out journal style and you readers comment how is it, okay? =)
10th of January.The first official day of SUSOM has finally begun! I woke up super early today (it's unlike me to wake up early =P)! Breakfast was prepared by Jason Lai (this would be the first and last time the SU Staff will prepare breakfast or any other meal for us & btw, he is a graduate of culinary arts.)
We headed to SU office after breakfast. We had our first OFFICIAL briefing and our first session, Spiritual Session 1 led by Aunt Runa. These sessions were conducted to build us up spiritually and to prepare us for the mission work ahead. She threw us pretty deep questions, and also stimulated our brains to think more about God. She threw us questions like "Why were human beings created although God knew we will fall?". This is a very interesting question... Why did He created us?...when He knew we would one day disobey Him? He knew that we humans would fall into sin, so why did He create us?
We had lunch at Cameron Towers, our first OFFICIAL SUSOM LUNCH together. =) (Man, I AM SO MISSING those times together...=( )
One thing nice about this place is the sambal! I'm not a big fan of sambal actually, but the sambal served here was just very nice! Ever head down to PJ? Head down to Cameron Towers for lunch!
It's a very good thing that there were no two heavy sessions in a row that day, or else my brain would have exploded! After lunch, we were given a tour round SU Office by Daniel Koo. He explained the SU Staff and in which department they worked for.
Next, we had a testimony sharing workshop. I think a workshop like this should be conducted in any Christian camp. This would allow us to be able to share freely to non-Christians how, why we accepted Christ and how it has changed us. I think it also forms a closer relationship with one another as we know a little more about each other. Usually, we go to national camps knowing next to nothing about each other, and go back knowing just a little extra about the person. (But it also depends on how willing the campers are willing to comply.)
Dinner time! Tong and Deborah were in charge to cook! Look at how happy Tong is cooking red beans.... =)
We had a time of family time and prayer after dinner that night (also conducted by Runa (she is a real superwoman! =D)).
Thus, ends the second day of SUSOM. =D
