United By The Moment

Commonwealth Games Live Site @ Federation Square Posted by Picasa

Today (15th March) was the first day of the Commonwealth Games, and although it wasn't a day off for me, I went straight to my neighbourhood - the Federation Square - after work where one of the Commonwealth Games Live Sites was.

A friend and I went to "Time Out Cafe" in the square to have dinner, and it turned out that there was a TV screen in there right in front of us. We got to see the opening ceremony there, with some performances (it was quite interesting to see a Melbourne tram with wings, as well as many other things with wings hehe). The Melbourne skyline erupted in a blaze of fireworks as the city celebrated the groundbreaking Opening Ceremony to mark the start of the XVIII Commonwealth Games. Athletes and people from 71 nations have come to Melbourne to take part in this event.

I had a great night! And I am so glad that although many of us are not in Melbourne, I can share with you on my blog here. :) You know what? I feel that truly the mission field is on the door steps of Melbourne. During my days off, I will be serving as a volunteer for the 'Word Art Games Exhibition' with a visual artist David White. His works will be exhibited at three city locations. The Games' motto is 'united by the moment'! May we pray and serve together, so that people are not only united by the moment, but eternally in Christ! Please pray for those who outreach and serve during the Commonwealth Games.

Philippians 4:13: "I have strength for all things in Christ who empowers me [I am ready for anything & equal to anything through Him who infuses inner strength in me; I am self-sufficient in Christ's sufficiecny" My prayers are with them:-)

Dear dear Kitty!
I just came from Godwyn's blog.

Surprise of all surprises!
You and our soldier brother Godwyn were staying in the same apartment block, different units apart, a few years ago.
Wow! The world is so small!

We can have a party.

Kitty Cheng said...

Amen to that Godwyn! Philippians 4:13 is a great and encouraging verse! Praise the Lord.
