Given that my experience at that time is only on validation documents (laboratory equipment) and a bit of project support in change request/project scheduling, it is certainly a steep learning curve for me on an area unexplored before. Initially, I faced a lot of scolding until there comes a point where I just felt like quitting/resigning due to incompetency on the task given. Certainly demoralizing at that moment.
Next would be the area of relationship. Yes, although I may thought God has already given me a life partner (earlier this year), things doesn't work well at the end which is partly my fault. Still, many things that I do gain out from that experience (as can be seen from my previous posts).
This year is also a new season in CG, when Yi Wei came in, replacing Eugene as CGL for West Coast Rise CG due to Eugene long term work in Brazil. When Yi Wei leads, you could expect to be challenged to think more about certain issues, especially when he asked lots of questions that could be interesting and yet difficult to answer. Personally, for me, he also provides good advice and support especially during my break-up with my ex in Sep.
On New Year Eve, he shared about God's grace that enabled him to reach out to some of the CG members where some share about their hurts and struggles to him. Personally, he felt blessed to be part of our life even though he is only merely a few months in the CG and points it down to God's unmerited favor. He mentioned too that everyone in the CG is unique in its own way which prompts him to ask lots of questions to know each one better.
Personally, I think if you have a leader like him, you feel like you can just share stuffs with him, knowing that he would be one that listens and also brings you back to the word besides offering practical advice. In fact, he was the first person I shared on that very fateful day when she sends that message, which leads to emotional breakdown during work that time. That certainly speaks volume, as I am not particularly one that opens up to just any people unless I feel comfortable in doing so.
Blessed to have him as a CGL. Maybe one of my resolution for 2016 should be to record down what he says during CG. :) Like the way he summarized things especially revelations which he shared with the CG as well. Here's some of the pictures taken with the CG in 2015.
Fast forward to year end, and it's Thanksgiving Sunday, last service of the year, where as a church, we come together to thank Him for His goodness in the year 2015. Of course, there comes the annual prayer request for the upcoming year.
For the upcoming year, decided to be more specific in what I would like to see in the year 2016, on what I would like to trust God for.
