This won’t be the only one I’ll be doing, but for now in this season I feel like doing one.
This shoutout goes to Xin An and Ting Wei.
For being available and intentional in building one another up and point one another to Christ.
I love how we are raw with one another in what we experience and how we feel. I struggle to be vulnerable in front of juniors, but the two of them have proved to be more than just juniors and really friends of mine to whom I don’t need to be tough in front of. Xin An will even be an equal next year when we both enter University, and I’m thankful for this pal with whom university will be less daunting.
I love how we roast one another (mostly Ting Wei) and laugh at one another’s embarrassing moments (Xin An’s guilty here) but always laughing with one another and never at one another.
I love how no matter how tough life gets we choose to follow Christ and always dedicate some time not just having quality time but fellowshipping: reminding one another of the goodness of God in our lives and encouraging one another to persevere.
I love how they are constants in my life, that is, being there when I need them, and letting me into their lives when they need me.
I love them more than words can express.
Thanks guys. This first shout-out goes to you.
And I’m sure this won’t be my only shout-out on this blog.
