My Experience in Discipling Timothy 2010
I first received a message from Jarnice whether I can help out in Discipling Timothy. At first, I didn't know what actually is Discipling Timothy. So, I just accepted the offer as I am free at that time and it was actually a camp which replaced Youth Congress this year. I was placed in the Programme and Workshop group together with Joyce and Daniel. Jarnice often send me some documents on some paperworks on the camp and the minutes of the meetings they had before hand which I was unable to attend. I looked through the documents and tried to find out what should I be helping in this camp. My group were required to learn the "Joy to the World" dance. After that, we need to teach the participants to dance as they will perform this on the Christmas Procession Nite. Other than that, we were required to prepare some games for the participants. So, my part was to prepare a Bible Game. This Bible Game was played in the Treasure Hunt style.
And now to the camp, I was quite excited to be able to help out in this camp. It's like a tradition for me to join a church camp every year end. Everything went quite smoothly in this camp. There were only 60 plus persons who joined this camp including committee members. So, there were not much problems which occured in this camp. The committee works together in a very well manner. No fights or quarrells occured which is something I like. Every night after all the programmes ended, all the committee members will have a short meeting. And these meeting was done swiftly and in the right way. There were no nagging and I totally love this. We worked together and discussed the right thing.
On the camp itself, it wouldn'd have been successful without the help of the participants. As we all know, this is a leadership camp which will train the leaders of the church for the coming years. The participants was just great. They knew what they were required to do. They finished their respective jobs and were really responsible. The speakers of each sessions was magnificent as well. They really provided nice and useful inputs for all of us. Moreover, the programmes of this whole camp was very nice and I can see that many people really love them. One of the programme which I want to highlight is the washing of feet. This is one programme which I suggest we do more often next time around. I would be more grateful if we can see this in the coming Youth Congress next year. Not forgetting Maranatha Night, which I thought was a very useful for us teenagers nowaday to sit down quietly to repent and think back what we have done. As we all know, with all the problems and obstacles in life nowadays, it's really not an easy to sit down quietly.
Other than that, I am very grateful to meet all the friends which I made in the camp. Some were new ones and not forgetting my long known friends. You were all very awesome. God is really great. Praise the Lord for everything. Thank God for all the food, the accommodation was nice, games was just so cool and etc. Truely, if there is any more chance, I would like to help out in the youth again next time. This is a great and wonderful experience. Have a nice day, people and Happy Holiday!
