Illustrations for Christ

Hey girls!

I'm working in TRYBE as a intern for a month, so some days (or most days) I get some free time to relax a little, and other times its rushing and full of typing and excitement! But this is my lunchbreak, and before that I was doodling (designing) some presentation templates for "M" (stands for Mirabel) and once done, I decided to bust out the creativity department in my head socket and fill them with some illustrations.

Its standard, (sort of) cute ones! Ha ha but this is what you get from Microsoft Powerpoint :0)

Hope these illustrations will brighten your day, to make you smile, and know that God our sovereign awesome King is never going to let us down because He wants you to smile, to follow the way that He leads, and to Trust in Him at all time!

P/S: Lindee, one of our fellow sister in Christ in FC (whose a cell leader) just gave birth today, Ugh we're so excited! Me, Jamie & Mirabel are going down after our work, pray that She'll recover well without complications and that the baby's health will be well and the family itself will be at ease, and be safe & secure.

Keep Paster Yueh Ping and her baby (in the stomach) in prayer too!

Sisters in Christ 4EVA,
Nicolette (with love, Jamie & Mirabel)

Heaven Rejoices over Nicolette and Jamie's Baptism!

Celebrating Nico & Jamie

Jamie's Baptism Testimony

I come from a good family background, where my parents are also Christians and have no marriage problems, and from young I saw my dad doing quiet time every morning. I really felt that I was carefully brought up in God’s hands, and He taught me what is right and wrong. When I was young I was scared of going to church and scared of the Bible because there’s this “devil” thing that I saw in a short skit in a church during the adult service, in which i did not understand their sermons at all. I did not go to the children's service because I tended to stick to my mum and cry if she left me to other people. (Laughs).

Recently when I started learning piano from a Christian teacher, I somehow got close to God again. She started praying for God to stir my heart, and He really did. I became more conscious about the loneliness in my heart - I had a lot of friends but only little close ones to go to, and often felt very down without a particular guy friend's sms for no good reason. As time passed, I felt very down and could hardly joke around or be happy wholeheartedly.

I did not know who to turn to, then God came to my mind. Looking at the calendar, which showed that 25th November 2007 (which was also my birthday) was a Sunday, I then decided to approach one of my friends in FCBC to tell him that I wanted to go church on that Sunday. Upon making that decision, I felt this Hand pushing me behind telling me “Just go, take that first step, and just go, don’t have to think too much anymore”. ha-ha I guess it was really God calling, and the good thing is I obeyed. :)

After coming back to God, of course things changed - there is now more security in me, and I started not caring much about what I wear to school everyday. I had cleared my doubts in God and can easily trust God and account to Him in times of trouble. I began spending time reading the Bible and soaking in God’s presence. All I can say is it is amazing. There is more happiness and joy in my life which help me to care for others more and also to bring happiness into their lives, beginning from the people around me (family, friends, and new cell sisters).

My cell leader’s care is real; each and every little step I take, she cares. She is always asking me “How are you feeling?” or “Are you ok?”. I can easily account to her my “progress” with God. I also ask her questions to clear my doubts, and became more stable in Christ, now being able to recognise that things that happen are all part of God’s plans, never coincidental. If I have not gone to church for spiritual nourishment, I would be spiritually dead. He gives power to the weak and to them who have no might, He increases strength. He said to me, "My Grace is sufficient for you, for My Strength is made perfect in weakness". God is R-E-A-L to me!

Our dear Sharon, wonderfully and fearfully created!

Some of us caught Sharon at her dance performance today. She was great! :)

Our dearie Sharon with flowers as bright as her! :)

Dear Sharon, you danced with such freedom and exuberance, beyond the mistakes that you mentioned and the stress on being on stage. Yes, the latter are not the most important, but your dancing your best which delighted God's heart and ours! :)

The might and focus you portrayed in your moves speak of the resilience and inner strength already in your heart through which God will sustain and propel you towards His good purposes in your life and family. So glad to see in even greater measure the beauty of the Lord in you as you dance!
