All Asian Leader's GTT

Right, alot has happened since I last posted about anything.
First up, I've left Raffles Hotel. My parents thought I was crazy, along with many other people. I've not been learning anything new at work and I decided that I'd rather take some time off for myself. I have a whole bunch of ideas, flavour combinations and recipes that I want to try and develop before I go into national service. It'd also be nice to have some time to myself and go out with people.

The week after I left Raffles Hotel, I went for the All Asia Leader's GTT for a week in Johor Bahru. The Geographical Training Time is a time where leaders and emerging leaders from churches that relate to New Covenant Ministries International gather together from all parts of the world for a time of corporate worship, relationship building and leadership training. It was the most intense and fulfilling week I've had since a long time. Thirteen Nations were represented and there were several reports about what God is doing in Asia.

Here's the worship team during practice. I've been playing with them for a long time and I love these guys/girls. I can't believe I'm even on this platform. I remembered when I wanted to play in a worship team and serve in that manner for God so badly when I was fifteen. It's just so great that God has given me that gift and priviledge.
Here's droopy eye Dave. He was our awesome drummer for the week. The last time I played with him was in March 2005. There will be another Leadership Training Time in November and I look forward to playing with him again. He has relocated from Taiwan to Cambodia to plant a church.
This is Dave looking like a drummer.
Here's Meg, Rach, Daniel and myself with the 3 most adorable boys at the meeting.
They were insanely cute and funny.

We made friends with two Mongolian guys and took them to the Night Safari when we got back to Singapore. They love their meat, and shun vegetables. It was a such priviledge to even talk to them and it was funny to hear some of the worship songs that we do in Mongolian. Several words sound like they were trying to clear their throats, but otherwise, it's Mongolian.

So that's what has been happening. Hopefully within the next few days, I'll be able to bake again. It's been a really long time since I've done anything like that. And I miss it.
