Wandering in Mountains (Hebrews 11:38)
As I reflect on my ministry I thought of what I could achieve by teaching a handful of students from the tribal groups of Sabah. Can they or will they achieve great things for the Lord? How many pastors graduated from our College are doing effective work and making an impact? Then I remember how David wandered for about 10 years in the wilderness with his 400 motley crew which became his mighty men when David ascended to the throne. I would imagine the 40 or so students I teach will be great pastors in future. Not just mighty men but I see more mighty women. Women here tend to show more leadership. Sad for the men. I did not travel to KK to rest but to prepare for ministry tomorrow in only Chinese congregation in the denomination. It is more than 12 years since I last visited them
And I asked for students to pray for me as I shall be preaching in English in 3 years and it will be translated by the pastor to Mandarin. Then I journey back to Namaus and wander through mountains again for the 100th time or more.
