Monday Lunch date!

Went to Eric office together with Dinah to discuss our trip to Chicago, showed him our flight itinerary
and our trip in details so he can help up book the flight.
He is always like a father to us, helps us settle everything, takes us to the bank, takes us to buy clothes,
isn't he is great?! hahahaha. After the short meeting, three of us went out for lunch, because today the
dinning hall is packed with a lot of visitors. In order to avoid the crowd, we went to a Mexican restaurant!
Rancho Viejo! Ordered steak and shrimp for myself as a meat lover, super delicious!!! hahah


We had some great conversation, updating our lives, enjoy great food, and laughed a lot!!!
Enjoyed this simple precious time together like a family!

Meet up with Sarah!

 It's Valentine's Day!!!!

My good friend, Sarah and I both singles, so.... hahaha... in order not to feel pity for ourselves, we went out for dessert together! Yes, who cares! And she gave me a box of chocolate as a gift!!! Awww~~~~~ <3

Although we only have a very short time to meet up, but we both enjoyed that! Talks about boys, life, and relationship, I love my friend!!! We became friend since our freshman year, she helps me to explore the America culture, learning the custom, and accepted me with her warm welcoming heart and friendship. She's cool and crazy! haha
Although she no longer studying in LR, but we still meet occasionally, keep each other update of our individual life.

Always thankful for her, thank God for such a great friend in this part of my life journey!
A precious friendship that I cherish a lot!

Hope that soon she can meet the one that loves her, cares for her, makes her smile every day!
A person that she can spend the rest of the Valentine together with!

CRU-Traveling Team!

Met them last year during the summer team reunion, and this time they travel here and speak on our campus!Although I heard this message twice, still, it's so powerful even makes me want to cry~
Well, let's do some recap:

God uses his people to bless the world.
Throughout Genesis, God speaks to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, "...all the nation's of the earth will be blessed. "

God's blessings don't just stop on us but go beyond that, which is to bless other people through us. 

The famous verse, Psalm 46:10 "Be still, and know that I am God...." A famous quote that printed on all the mugs, t-shirts, stickers, but... how many of us read the whole verse? Let me show you the full verse: "Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nation's, I will be exalted in the earth."

God's plan is bigger than

We all know the Great Commission in Matthew 28:19-20: “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” 

The 10/40 window is the rectangular area of North Africa, the Middle East, and Asia approximately between 10 degrees North and 40 degrees north latitude. The 10/40 window is often called "The Resistant Belt" and includes the majority of the world's Muslims, Hindus, and Buddhists. These countries have high concentrations of unreached peoples, but yet, missionaries on the field are few... "The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the Harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field." Matthew 9:37-38
What can we do?!
Go-er: We can go on a mission trip, or serve as a cross-cultural missionary.
Sender: We can be the one who support the go-er by GIVING and PRAYING.
Mobilizer: Encourage people to go and see the need, challenge them to respond it!

          *That's Amber! She is from the Traveling Team, an encouraging young lady!*

You have heard this, now, it's your choice to stay back in the same routine or make a difference. 
Remember, life is short, make no regret.
