15 Days with Them

That half-month, 360 hours or 15 days living with these crazy people was too short. We lived in a 4 storey art gallery occupying the 3rd and 4th floor.  We’re 27 in total, no wifi, no mattress, no air-condition, with 4 bathrooms, 2 showers, skulls, black birds and one cute dinosaur.

From different nations, I thought we will be having a problem, I thought the 15 day household would be so hard for all of us. But then, I saw how the Lord works in our household. Because there’s no wifi, we’re obliged to interact with one another. Here are the 15 reasons why I would miss these crazy people.

15. The Chilli Game!

When you get the highest value of cards, you need to eat a chilli while doing push-ups or sit-ups. Intense game for the Filipinos (Indians and Malaysians are used to eat chilli).

14. “The Dish Wash Song”

13. Jamming Sessions

9. Indian and Malaysian Food

This is sausage and veggies, egg curry and dal. I forgot to take picture of Chicken Masala and Ginger with coconut milk rice. What do you expect, it’s spicy yet delicious! Sedap! Swadisht!

8. Football addict

If Filipinos are basketball fanatics, these guys from India and Malaysia are Football addicts!

I think we spent 1/3 of prep 15 inside the L300, Starex and Tan Mobil.

4. One to ones

That simple conversation that you didn’t notice that you’re exchanging lives already. Simple conversation really means a lot.

3. Bulita

We do this to wake up people. Also a form of gift for a birthday celebrant.

2. Morning prayers, Prayer time, Worship

Building up one another in prayer time was a great blessing for all of us.

1. Reaching out

This is the most memorable part of prep 15. In spite of language barrier, you still reached out to the Aeta Kids. They might not understand you, but they felt your compassion and love. Even in that short time you spent with them, they felt the love of God through your small ways like hugging, kissing, playing with them, teaching them action songs, giving them food and by just simply smiling at them.

When I look at each of you, I see two things. I see builder of forts. Second, I see a good man who will always be there, no matter how hard life gets for me or him.

Terima kasih sangat sangat! Bahut bahut skuhriya! Thank you very much Kairos Prep 15 Central Household!
