-----------------------------------------------


Four days of great reviving and stimulating gathering. I am so much in tune now and keen to share my impactful experiences. I will divide this subject into several posts such as Hope Games, Hope Stores, Teaching and etc. So get ready for more pictures and words words words!!


In brief, Malaysia National Convention is held once a year where Hope Churches around Malaysia will flock together in one place to celebrate the feast. For the three years in a row, we are focusing mainly upon three major mascots. Ants, Geese and Penguin.


This year's mascot which is also the last, Penguin with the theme "My Purpose, Our Destiny". As you can see it on my blog's header.


First day.

On the first day, we had our Hope Carnival Games at MBKS stadium. Few days before the actual event, heavy rains kept pouring on Kuching. Desperately praying for a fine weather on Games day to prevent loads of troublesomes especially in transportation to occur and yes, He answered.

My game was kinda as easy as a kacang and that's why it's called the Peanut game! Each member has to use a pair of chopsticks and grab as many peanuts as they can

and transfer it to the other end of the side. And drop it in the empty cup.

Easy le? HOWEVER, not as kacang as they thought it was, i requested them to pair up with another partner and carry their partner to do so.. **evil laugh**
