Panic: This is how I felt before, during and after my time in the SOM. Before - because I have never been away from home for 3 months. During - because I have to meet so many new people, mostly strangers to me. After - because I know how much it would change me.
Purpose: It came after my panic attacks. I first decided to come to SOM because my life was mundane like a calm lake but that is not what I wanted. It was the same last year and I did not want the same mundane life for this year as well so I responded to God with a conscious effort to bring change into my life.
Plans: This is something I dislike. However, the plans that God has for me was not to bring me harm but to prosper me. During my first week, I cried because everything was so foreign to me. So I took a walk in the park nearby. There I felt God was shattering the chains in my life. He brought me out of my comfort zone to show me what He had in store for me. His plan was to break me out of my own cage, offer friendship to others and much more.
Passion: Now, I am fueled by it to preach life to those who need it !!

Coming to Tung Ling wasn’t something I have planned but I am sure God did. He orchestrated my journey here. For that, I am really grateful. Studying in SOM 2018 has broadened my spiritual horizons. I feel really blessed to gain spiritual insights and knowledge from different lecturers and modules of the course. Most of all, I have learnt a great deal about God and what it means to be a Christian. Working together with other Christians has also taught me a lot about the importance of fellowship. I find that the various duties and tasks given have served as a good platform for spiritual discipline. Overall, my time here has been edifying. I couldn’t imagine how my Christian walk would have been without a clear understanding and a strong foundation in God’s Word. As I look towards the future, I am sure God has a plan and a journey that He wants me to take. His assurance strengthens me as I venture into His promised land.
