the conclusion of AIYS 2012.

Tonight’s the final time I will fall asleep in Asia Pacific Theological Seminary, Baguio.

AIYS 2012 has been a blast. By lunch tomorrow, I’d have sat into nearly 70 (!!) classes – that’s like attending 10 IDMCs! I’ve learnt so much from the instructors here; there’s a truckload to take home – new knowledge acquired, a renewed passion, a lifted spirit and of course, new friends and ministry partners from around the world.

The Lord has spoken to me personally and through pastors and friends who prayed for me. That’s crucial because I know if God is for me, then I can proceed with His approval. The trick now is to not go ahead of God, but to trust in Him and wait for Him to pave the way for me in the things that He’s impressed upon my heart to implement.

I’m thankful to Grace AG for sending me to AIYS 2012. The next AIYS takes place in 2015 and I declare this by faith – I will bring my full-time staff team with me.

Frankly, I think I’ve already reached saturation point for lessons. All I want to do now is to reflect on the 60+ notes, distill the ones that challenge me and sieve out the ones that are applicable to R-AGE. AND PUT WHAT I’VE LEARNT INTO ACTION. Otherwise, it’d be pointless.

And speaking of action, I’m pleased that there’s no chapel service tonight because traditionally, the last night’s always reserved for Balut Party – a rite of passage for AIYS delegates. I’ll let the photos talk!

  1. Amen!!! I wanted to publish on my blog a journal of my days in AIYS but in some unknown reasons I wasn’t able to access it at APTS. Anyway, it’s great to know you Ptr. Joey! The balut party was legendary; I guess I felt saturated also by the near end of AIYS. haha *Your proposal story is a dream for many ladies. You two are so blessed by each other. :)* Hoping to see you soon! :D
