hey guys
thought it’d be good to share new songs here on the YF blog before we actually sing them, so that you can learn them early if you’re keen!
this one is awesome – i love it! you might recognise some lyrics from Exodus.
keep running hard for the Lord!

ps. lyrics in video don’t exactly match – video came from another chinese church – bahaha

Encouraged

Posted in Reflections, Uncategorized on September 22, 2009 by BillyL

I’ve been encouraged immensely over the past year by money given to organisations such as tearfund and gfa and other missionary projects. To hear that people are buying presents for people that are actually gifts to other people who need it just shows the potential of giving and how much we can be a part of helping further God’s kingdom! Our Church CCCB raised enough money to buy a Jesus well in India through GFA earlier this year, plenty of people gave to the Walk the Extra Mile for Dalit children in India, the individual growth groups raised money to buy individual gifts in the GFA catalogue as part of offering and even the money that was raised for the Taiwan missionaries. It is such encouragement for me to see and hear how people are selflessly using their money so other’s can spread the Good News of Christ and help bring these people out of poverty and bring the Good News to them.

So let me continue to encourage you all to keep giving to these worthy causes because there are people in this world who don’t enjoy luxuries like we do, who live off much less and who are in both physical and spiritual need.

If you’d like to give or support Christian organisations that help the poor in the name of Christ, check out these websites below:

Pray for Morocco

Posted in Uncategorized on August 10, 2009 by BillyL

Morocco is a country located in North Africa with a population of approximately 32 million. Ironically, Morcco is not part of the African Union and has no interest in joining. Instead, it is a member of the Arab League. Its capital is Rabat, and its largest city is Casablanca

Morcco is 99.9% sunni-mulsim with a few Christian (catholic) protestants ex-patriates who reside in Rabit and Casablanca. Although freedom of religion is tolerated, anyone converted to Christianity will be punished by law and tradition. Some have been interrogated and have had their passports removed from them.Anyone seen evangelizing will face severe punishment even though it is not against any laws. In 2005, a Christian man was detained for 15 years because he was seen evangelizing.

Nevertheless, there has been steady improvement over the years. Recently the King held a conference with other muslim leaders to discuss tolerance to other religions. All bibles are allowed in Morcco except for Arabic bibles.

Morocco is not your typical Muslim country as they tolerate worship of other religions however don’t tolerate evangelism. Please pray for the Christians and muslims in Morcco.

– Pray that Christians will be able to worship freely in Morocco
– Pray that God will send missionaries out to Morocco.
– Pray that God will encourage the low % of Christians in Morcco
– Praise God that there is relgious tolerance in Morocco

Also don’t forget to pray for Pakistan. Story is here http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/asia/article6736696.ece
