regen 2016.

a few months ago, i had signed up to attend an easter camp in milton keynes called regen.
it is a 3 nights-4 days camp directed at university students and young adults.

i took the train with loksze to milton keynes and snapped this picture of him mid-sneezing before we headed out to fetch a taxi. it was a smooth ride to the conference centre and when we arrived, we were welcomed with the overwhelming sight of chinese people in snapbacks.

it felt so good to be embraced in a chinese community again after attending an english church in southampton for the past few months. we worshiped together, listened to the word together and feasted together.

in the mornings, we started off the day with some personal time and devotion with God before getting into small groups and sharing our testimonies.

my group in particular played a game amongst ourselves where we would blow 'darts' at each other. being 'shot' meant we had to lie on the floor and await for someone nice to help pull the dart out so we could get up.

in the evenings we would get together for group games such as cards, saboteur and the mighty mahjong - oh yes. the game became such an addiction that we would end up playing till 4am.

camp food was great and all, but one afternoon loksze and i decided to get away from the rice for a bit and decided to walk down to mcdonalds for some cheeky mozzarella sticks. if you're a true cheese fan, you'll know these are amazing.

at church camps with chinese people, a time slot is always reserved for taking pictures. we didn't get t-shirts this year, but instead we copped these '100% fresh' snapbacks to remind us to water our relationship with God daily.

^ and here's my group 'foo yue', a chinese cheese! 

refreshed, renewed and regenerated, we all left being hydrated in our faith, especially as being uni students it is up to ourselves to keep this relationship with God and be active in going to church and reading His word amongst our freedom.

after a stop at costa and returning home, i managed to sleep for 14 hours to catch on all my missed hours during camp.
