Testimonies I am a new member of Trinity. I knew about the Car Rally only a week prior to the actual event but I signed up anyway. I had completely no idea what I was in for. Nevertheless, I was excited to meet a new bunch of friends from “Fireplace”, my new carecell. I was all geared up to have some great fun.
My friend Stephanie invited me to the Car Rally, and I thought it would be a fun experience. I was right — it was so much FUN! I met new friends, had a lot of fun and most importantly, I learnt something during the event. My favorite destination was West Coast Park, where we had to balance and walk on a narrow wooden bridge wearing foam-cup goggles that made it hard for us to see our own steps. Here, everyone had to cross the bridge assisted by one of the other team members.
The most meaningful station was the one where we had to appreciate people who are in authority. We wrote and drew a card for our carecell leader. Of course, our appreciation for our leader did not end there but it was to be a life long journey to appreciate them through consistent love, support and prayers. The challenge for me personally is ‘consistency’. Through this session, I am reminded to consistently love, understand and learn to view from their perspective. The people who influence me most are my parents, boss, pastor and, not to forget, God. I need to have a consistent love relationship with them.
This challenge was a total hit on the title, “Walk by faith and not by sight”. If we crossed the bridge without the other member’s help, we might fall off the bridge. I think this is really the same with God and us. God is always there to give us the help needed to cross whatever bridge we’re facing in our life. The question is, do we really want to hold onto God’s hand to help us cross or do we want to go ahead and cross the bridge by ourselves?
Overall, the Car Rally was a great success! Although my team did not win any prize, the experience and lesson learnt from this event was priceless. Chiam Tow Ming, lecturer
