Praise God :)

I never thought that I’d be receiving an award for leading Genesis from RICE presented by the premier of NSW-but this photo captures exactly that. There’s a few things that I’d like to say about this moment – because if I’m going to be in the spotlight, I’d like to tell you why I’m here.

Jesus 🙂

Firstly, my hope is that it’s never about me. Like all things in heaven and on earth, both myself and RICE Genesis have been created by and for Jesus. Therefore I hope that the goal is always to bring Him glory and honour and praise 🙂 Plus I’ve seen how from the beginning, God has been holding my hand, leading us, showing us the way we should take, providing and making a new road for us to walk down. We are just on the journey with Him!

Core team 🙂

In the same way, a leader is nothing without their team. I have been blessed with the most amazing core team ever! Nate, Judy and Lisa are some of the most passionate, gifted and kind people I have ever met and to work together is just amazing. Frankly I don’t know what I’m doing most the time and I’m prone to anxiety/indecision/fear/doubt- so to have advice and support from the core team gives me the strength I need! Their dedication goes way beyond the “once a week Friday commitment” :O

Genesis fam + Support network 🙂

The extent of variety, creativity and personality (I’m rhyming now) in the small but growing Genesis community is truly special. Whether you actively encourage what we do, peek your head in for a bit or have consistently been a part of what we do, every person adds something valuable and unique, and it’s everyone’s contributions together that make it beautiful! This includes brothers and sisters such as Sabrina, Edwin, Christy, Isaac Cheng, Shavonne, Amanda, Dom, Mel, Timothy, Sherwin, John, Elia, Terry, Justin Samreth, Popo, Louise, Isaac Lee… (I could probably go on foreverrrrr by including everyone who has ever supported us!)

What am I getting at?

So as you can see it’s obvious that it really isn’t about me. It’s about the body of Christ coming together for the cause of His Kingdom– the different parts of the body playing their part with Jesus as the head.

I don’t care how cliche this is-but I really would like to thank the RICE board (Steve, Pete, Eugene, Mikey) for acknowledging and empowering me in this way. This gesture means a lot to me-especially for my dad (who is not Christian) to see that I can do something meaningful in a Christian organisation. So this award (however small or big) goes to the Genesis fam and my God. I am just blessed to be a part of it all <3

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. – Ephesians 3:20-21
