Royal Rangers Selangor #6

Gearing up!


Guess what, it's been 10 days since the end of rangers for the year 2014! *awww ):
And we bet all of you lil chipmunks are missing us, your super awesome commanders already, right? (;
Anyways, the commanders of Selangor #6 will be going for a leaders' planning retreat this coming Friday. We'll be coming together to pray and plan for the upcoming year ahead! So rangers, do keep all of your commanders in prayers even as we charter for the year 2015 (:

Why must we pray?
Prayer is a vital part of our Christian life and it's important for ministries to be fervent in prayer too. In every truly successful ministry, prayer is an evident and controlling force. No ministry can be a spiritual ministry, securing holiness in its people without prayer. And as your commanders, we want to be the best that we can be for all of you and not rob you guys of the experience that you're entitled to receive.

Here are some prayer points:

  • Pray for God to move, to stir, to ignite a greater passion in the hearts of the leaders
  • Pray for unity and understanding, for the leaders to work together as one body
  • Pray for wisdom and strength, for the Lord's direction in all our plannings
  • Pray for save journey mercy even as we travel to and fro
  • Pray for a good fellowship and fun even in the midst of it all
  • Pray for anything at all that God puts in your heart that will bless Selangor #6 and even the Royal Rangers ministry as a whole

Remember that NO prayer is too small! For if the Holy Spirit is helping us in prayer, surely our imperfect prayers were perfected by the time they arrived at the throne of God the Father. 

Do also take the time to pray and meditate on God's word even as we prepare our hearts for what is to come. We've seen God's faithfulness throughout this 27 years. Surely, the God who has blessed us so much in the past will have even greater things installed for us in the future. Let's be ready for what God is about to entitle us with and give our best towards the ministry.

See you all 11am sharp in church this Friday! T- 2 days!

Cheers (:

Hear, Hear! #4

Hi, I am Tan Chun Han. You can call me Han. In Royal Rangers Sel#6, I have learnt a lot of things from all the commanders. They have been helping me since I joined Royal Rangers. Royal Rangers has helped me grow closer to God. In Rangers, I learnt a lot such as cooking, hiking, communication and a lot more. It is fun joining Rangers. There are a lot of camps and events in Royal Rangers such as Pow Wow, Outpost Camp and Cookarama just to name a few. I totally experienced God during those camps because I could really feel Him. I have already joined two camps, namely Outpost Camp and Pow Wow. I got to know a lot of commanders and rangers. Even though the commanders are from other outposts, they still helped me. Royal Rangers has helped me gain friendships that are not easily broken. I also would like to thank the commanders that always ask if I have any prayer request. They have been taking care of us and always helped us when we need it . The commanders around me make me feel safe. Royal Rangers has helped me to be more sociable and able to make friends wherever I go.

In Royal Rangers we train future leaders through outdoor activities such as camping, hiking and so much more! Ranger Han here has clearly benefited from joining the various camps that we organise year in and year out and he's definitely growing not just physically but mentally and spiritually as well (: So if you're reading this and you're not a part of our Selangor #6 family YET, do come and join us this Sunday (19.10.2014) at 12.30pm, Glad Tidings Assembly Klang! It'll be our last meeting for the year! So do come, join us and be blessed (:

That's all for now, Toodles!

AR Campout 2014

Hello beautiful people (:

The Adventure Camp blog post is finally up and you're reading it right now!
For the first time in forever, Selangor #6 had their very own Adventure Rangers Camp! wooohhooo!
The camp was held from the 13th to the 15th of September in Sungai Congkak and it was three days of pure fun, lepaking and learning together!

p.s. Some of the rangers said it was the most fun and relaxing camp ever! so ya you did miss out on alot if you weren't there! :P

But fret not! More camps will be coming your way next year (; so make sure you're there with us!

Anyways.. Adventure Camp! Here's a sneak peak of what we did..
Throughout the three days, the Adventure Rangers completed their Camping Merit and the Bible Lesson of 1st Timothy. After that, it was just alot of games, rolling on green grass, cooking, river wading and even lantern wishing!

But most importantly, we saw alot of the Adventure Rangers step up during camp, proactively helping out and being more mature altogether. It really warms the hearts of the commanders to see the rangers grow and our prayers for all of you is that you will continue to follow after Christ, to grow in wisdom and stature, to be the salt and the light and the one who stands up for what is right. While we may have fun week in and week out, we pray that most of all, every one of you will grow up to be young men and women that follow after God's heart. (:

So that's a wrap for 2014's Adventure Camp! 
For more pictures, do head on to our Facebook page and share the joy while you're at it!

Also a big shout out to Ranger Jia Jun who celebrated his birthday in camp!
A video of him and his "birthday cake" (;

More posts coming up this week as we're heading to a close for the year 2014.
Stay tuned for more!

Hear, Hear! #3

Have you ever thought of being part of Royal Rangers? A church based ministry that trains future leaders through outdoor activities. Many of us might not be interested at first but you'll slowly find it intriguing to know that there is such a thing going on in church. We should try attending it for at least once to have the experience by participating in camps or any competition such as Cookarama organised by Royal Rangers. As the elders say that we shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, we should give it a chance and who knows! You might just want to continue on your journey in the Royal Rangers ministry.

Want to know how a person that has been impacted by Royal Rangers is living his or her life now? Let’s just say I will share mine.

Being an Expedition Ranger in Selangor#6, meetings will be held every Sunday after service after an hour of lunch break. It was kinda hard to follow up as an Expedition Ranger initially while others had gone through Ranger Kids, Discovery Ranger and the Adventure Ranger path, but I have no regrets starting out as an Expedition Ranger because there are commanders and friends accompanying me along the way. Moreover, I had my first camp which is our Outpost Camp for the year 2014. It was an awesome and knowledgeable camp learning different knots and how to use them to build benches and even a kitchen! There were two patrols which were given a project to accomplish as soon as possible. The patrol that I am in was asked to build a kitchen. It was hard at first to actually use strength to tighten the knots and was hurtful as well although we had gloves on! (jut rope). Although it was unsuccessful the first day, we managed to get it done on day two through teamwork and strong determination. Putting the project time aside, leisure time was also given for us to enjoy games and the swimming pool. It was fun to have games such as tug-a-war and water polo! At the end of the camp, I felt really heavy hearted to leave the fun and get back to 'reality'. Thereafter, we were told to write a short testimony to be shared during the next meeting. Trust me, it was hard to keep it short since it was a long camp filled with fun and great experiences. A point to note, I learnt that being caution is a key to avoid sunburn after building projects under the sun for the whole day and bruises from the wood used for the project! Nevertheless, it was an amazing first camp as an Expedition Ranger :)

Besides Outpost Camp, there are many more camps happening every year and it’s open to every Royal Rangers outpost all over Malaysia and even to you who may not be in Royal Rangers yet. So far I've participated in the 1st Central District Ranger Kids Camp and 4th Central District Pow Wow Malaysia. Want to know more about Royal Rangers? You are most welcome to attend with us every Sunday at 1.30pm!

The objective of the Royal Rangers ministry is to REACH, TEACH and KEEP boys and girls for Christ. Ranger Brocky here is one of the many testimonies of that exact objective that we aim to achieve week in and week out. Selangor #6 is so blessed to have you in our big family Brocky! And it's been our privilege to see you grow. Our prayer for you is that you will continue to  keep that faith and be that living testimony of God's faithfulness! Here's to many more years ahead in the Royal Rangers ministry (:

Hear, Hear! #2

My name is Nicholas Ng. In rangers, I have learnt so much from all the commanders around me. They have always been of great help. The merits in rangers have made me more knowledgeable and now I am able to understand interesting topics. Besides, my communication skill has increased so much more through the different activities that I participated in. 

Royal Rangers as a Christian organisation has helped me grow closer to God. Moreover, some life-long friendships have been made. Through Royal Rangers’ camps such as Pow Wow and Camporama, I have been exposed to different people from different places and it has definitely given me the chance to experience God again. 

I am always encouraged seeing how prayers in Rangers have helped me in my life. The commanders are always with us and understand us and that makes me feel more secure. Rangers has also brought me closer to my school friends and made it easier for me to make new friends anywhere and everywhere.

Prayer is a vital part of our Christian walk with God. In fact, it is so important that it's mentioned more than 250 times in the bible! As commanders, we cover the rangers in our prayers because prayer is such a powerful force. The power of prayer comes not from the special words we say or special ways we pray but from the omnipotent Father who hears and answers our prayers. All we have to do is pray in faith. Know that the Holy Spirit is helping us in prayer, and that Jesus is interceding along as well (Romans 8:26). We're so glad that our prayers touched your life Nicholas. We pray for even more of God's glory to be revealed in your life for the days to come!

Continue to shine for Jesus!

Cookarama 2014


What's Cookarama you ask? Cookarama's an outpost tradition that we celebrate every year where all the young aspiring chefs that is our rangers cook up a storm to showcase their culinary expertise (or some culinary tragedies). In this year's edition, the commanders decided to pick the rangers' creativity in cooking.... MUSHROOMS! And as all you rangers should remember, Cookarama was just five days ago! Just in case some of you start to forget what you guys came up with, (cause our brains are getting tinnier relying on smartphones all the time) here are pictures of the day to evoke those almost faded memories...

But before we get to the food! Beginning last year, Selangor #6 decided to instill a BIT more fun into this annual cook out of ours, and yes as you can see below, it's the infamous BLIND TASTE TEST! Fully equipped with blind folds and headphones so you can't cheat *sly and evil laugh*

What happens is that every patrol from the Adventure and Expedition Rangers will send one of their members to blind taste some insects and reptiles that we feed them blindfolded and whoever gets the most correct answers get to have a first hand choice in the protein that they will be cooking together with their mushrooms! So much fun isn't it? :P

Nah.. just kidding.. we don't serve insects and reptiles. This was what we really served them last Sunday. From apples to carrots to french beans to almonds. Healthy living people!

Ranger Shannon vs Ranger Adam. It is on!

Ranger Daniel vs Ranger Calvin

Ranger Krystal vs Ranger Jonathan

Having gone through the blind test taste and getting their proteins, the cook off officially commenced!

Ranger Kids' Cmdrs and their little helping hands
"The peace sign?! Man, I don't know these people." 
Cmdr Jayson and the Discovery Rangers! Those are some huge mushrooms!

After an hour of intense cooking.... the end results!

After putting much effort in plating and presenting all their dishes in the best way possible, it's time... for the judges... to taste the fooooddddd! (We pray no one got food poisoning :P)

The rangers waiting anxiously as the judging was about to commence!

But! Though we can't tell you who won, we'll be so kind to show you some really glam pics of your Cmdrs taking part in their own Cookarama soooo many years ago..


Blessed Friday ya'll!

Hear, Hear! #1


In conjunction with the Gold-bordered Communication Merit that the Expedition Rangers are achieving, we're going to start a new Hear, Hear! series featuring all that the Expedition Rangers have to say.

Hear, hear is an expression used as a short, repeated form of hear, hear him. The actual source can be found in 2 Samuel 20:16. "Then cried a wise woman out of the city: 'Hear, hear; say, I pray you, unto Joab: Come near hither, that I may speak with thee.'" (KJV)

So do keep a lookout for more from the Expedition Rangers and hear what they have to say! Here's one from Ranger Celeste to kick start this new series!

Hi everyone! I am Celeste Tan, and I am an Expedition Ranger at Selangor #6.

Since I am not yet a commander, my journey as a Ranger is not yet over, so here's what I've learnt at Royal Rangers so far.

I have been in the Rangers ministry since I was nine, and it has been a real blessing to me over the years.

Working on merits makes me manage my time wisely, and plan ahead for certain things to be done and submitted. I've learned about lots of different interesting subjects that I wouldn't have learnt on my own; like public speaking, sign language, leadership skills and Christian missions, to name a few.

from the merits and numerous camps that I've been to, I have learned a lot of survival and life skills; like surviving in the jungle, using a compass and how to build a fire, amongst many other things.

I still remember and reminisce about the training camps (JTC and Survival Camp), and how I learned so much about myself and my teammates there (think dealing with stress, leadership skills, teamwork and surviving without internet) :)

I've grown spiritually thanks to the Bible studies and the commanders asking us questions that make me think deeply. It gives me different perspectives on Biblical insights that I sometimes find boring/overrated, and really spurs me to do better in my Christian walk by the grace of God.

I've met all sorts of different people on the way, and learnt how to deal and work with them. Although it is not always smooth sailing, it has made me a better person in the process. It takes all sorts of people to make the world go 'round. And some of those people are my good friends now :)

The purpose of Royal rangers is to reach, teach and keep young people in the church through mentorship, and I am glad that it is still going on strong after so many years. I am really grateful to all of the commanders who input into our lives week in and week out. I hope one day I'll be able to serve and give back as they have.

God bless!

As the saying goes, 'Once a Ranger, Always a Ranger'.
We look forward to having you grow and mature into a wonderful leader in the years to come Celeste! Till then, continue to shine bright for our Master Ranger (:

Fire and Rescue 101

Remember the time when you were a kid and your ambitions were always doctor, police, fireman? or the Hong Kong drama Burning Flame that made you want to be a fire fighter? Well last Saturday, the Adventure Rangers had the chance to accomplish that dream! Okay. Not really. But we did have the chance to check out the daily life of a fireman in a fire station. Which is pretty cool!

There are altogether four fire stations in Klang situated in Kota Raja, Andalas, Pelabuhan Klang and Kapar, which was the one we visited. The tour began with a half hour briefing equipping us with basic knowledge of the organisation's structure, statistics and some real life fire and rescue examples.

Next we got a tour of the control room! This is where the calls from the public will be picked up, answered and dispatches sent out in respond to the emergencies. We were fortunate to be able to witness a live call asking for help to burn the hive of hornets! Apparently people have already been stung! Ouch.

We were also given the chance to see and touch many of the tools that firemen use during fire and rescue missions. These tools are not meant for the faint hearted! They are soooooo heavyyyy!

Here's Chicken Rice Ball aka Ranger Jia Jun trying to look cool... pulling it off??

And Ranger Bryan Tay! The tank seems to be wearing his little body instead. Time to eat more little one!

And of course, the famous water pipe fire hose! For the fire hose to work, pressure is required to push water through the hose, to expel water through the nozzle, and to lift the water up to a higher level. The usual working pressure of a fire house is 8 to 20 bar while its bursting pressure can be up to 83 bar! The surge in pressure can actually damage the hose or cause the fire fighter at the nozzle to lose control of the stream but seems like Cmdr Reuben can consider being a fireman (;
Last but not least, the moment we've all been waiting for ... 

Click HERE to view the video!!
*A must watch funny moments of your fellow ranger friends hehe

Group shot! Here's one to wrap up the day (:

Indeed it was such an eye opening trip for all of us! Fighting fire and rescue work never come easy. Sometimes it even means to put your life on the line for the sake of others. But instead of sitting behind a safe office desk in a cold office room, these men are ready 24/7. Always ready to serve the people, ready to take us out of harm's way. They practice and drill, sweat and bleed so that they will be able to help us when we need them. In the same way, a ranger should always be READY! As our motto goes, a ranger should be ready for anything! Ready to work, play, serve, worship, live, and obey God’s Word. For there is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens. And we want to be ready for that. So that when chances and opportunities present itself for us to preach the gospel, help a friend or even step up to the occasion, we will be able to say yes Lord! Here i am, use me. 

Soooo that's a wrap from the fire station! (: Stay tuned for more exciting events coming your way!

For Cmdr Michelle

A word from the Senior Cmdr:

A true Knight
A roaring 4.0 CGPA candidate, proud GMA holder, a girl with awesome artistic skills, and most of all… the incredible White Knights leader – Cmdr Michelle Lee. Even as she takes on the next phase of uni life all the way up North in the land of Char Kueh Teow, Cendol, Apam Balik, Durian, etc… we can never take the Bah Kut Teh out of her! =) Here is to wish her all the best in her new undertaking knowing that God has many more things in stored for her life and that she will be a great blessing to the people there. Penangnites & UTMians, you guys beware because Michelle is coming to town!

May God’s guidance and blessing go with you that you will find favour with the people around you, Michelle! Hope you can settle down fast and find a good church there! We all miss you here and I’m sure the DRs too! Hope to see you back in RR during your holidays! =)

Even as you step into a new phase of life, Selangor #6 will always be here for you!
Come back often to visit Cmdr Michelle! (and bring back good food for us too!) We will miss you!

Much Love!

Lunch Out

In conjunction with the Hari Raya weekend and a day off from rangers, the Expedition Rangers went on a lunch out with their beloved commanders!

What else better to eat for a bunch of growing teenagers than buffet right?
So after circling the shopping mall in search of a nice restaurant, the ERs finally decided to settle with....
 A Japanese "House of Hot Pot" that serves unlimited, top-quality chilled beef and pork in paper-thin slices and farmed chicken. Not to mention its vegetable bar! (but since when teenage boys even eat their vegetables. Carnivores.)

Cmdr Debs trying very hard to contain her joy with the amount of food stacked in front!
And of course.. the compulsory group selfie

Twas a fun afternoon spent eating the value out of our meal! Thankfully no one puked (almost).
But most importantly being able to spend quality time with each other (:

Till next time!

Grabbing life by the ball

Just in case your mind has been starting to wonder off... *pops bubble* The title was referring to the Adventure Ranger's all time favorite game - Dodgeball!

Dodgeball is a game in which players on two teams try to throw balls at each other while avoiding being hit themselves. Yea.. pretty much our version of a snowball fight since we only get summer all year through!

There are many variations of the game, but generally the main objective of each team is to eliminate all members of the opposing team by hitting them with thrown balls, catching a ball thrown by a member of the opposing team, or forcing them to move outside the court boundaries when a ball is thrown at them.

Here's the Adventure Rangers in action!
And yes, it includes keeping yourself from being hit. Ranger Jonathan Na showing us how it's done... the creative way. Boys will always be boys!
And as the famous saying goes:
If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball!

Have a great Monday everyone! Here's wishing that your day turns out better than the guy above (;

The Lady Boss, signing out!

We sincerely apologize for the lack of updates but as the title states, it's Throw Back Thursday! #tbt
Half of the year has already gone by (how did that happen!) and as we look forward to a greater second half, let's take a look back on the activities that has took place in the last six months...

1st Central District Ranger Kids' Camp | 22 February 2014

"On the 22nd February, ranger kids from all across Klang Valley gathered together for one purpose, the SUPERHERO daycamp! The camp was held at the premise of Grace Klang and was attended by over 110 hyper-active super kids. 

It was a fun-filled and activities-packed day that allowed the kids to be Thor, fling spider webs, and also shoot down bad guys with nerf guns! They also experienced their first ever council fire that night in the open, displaying their awesome-looking costumes and holding a glowstick in hand each too. 

Ask any of them how was the camp and you will have the biggest grin on their face as they all went back with not only a lego superhero, koko crunch, but also an identity that they can identify and relate too and also to draw strength from the one and only true superhero, Jesus!"

For more pictures, checkout RR Malaysia's Facebook page!


Outpost Campout | 21-24 March 2014
80 campers, same venue and Outpost Campout for the 2nd year in a row!
Four days of the great outdoors, fun, excitement and coming back to the heart of worship. The rangers had to build their own dining tables, benches, chippewa kitchen, tool craft area, cook their own meals, shower in the cold and learn how to hike the jungle in total darkness! But best of all, nothing beats bonding together as an outpost at night with nothing but games and laughter. Memories we'll always cherish and look back upon even as we turn 80, old and crooked.

Soapy Tug-of-War! BEST GAME EVER!
For more pictures, visit Cmdr Pei Jun's Facebook page!


Hats off to the DR commanders who brought 21 cute and clumsy discovery rangers ice-skating on a Sunday! But of course our little rangers did not look like those two in the picture above.. They were most probably too busy getting their little butts off the ice the whole time.. how cute is that! eeekkkss!


ER Badminton Tournament | 3 May 2014

The road to attaining the Gold Medal of Achievement (GMA) is not easy and rangers are expected to complete various requirements, including organizing an event first hand. The Expedition Rangers of Selangor #6 did not disappoint! and held a successful badminton tournament opened to all. There were a total of 12 teams and nothing less than a healthy day of fun!

Meet the champions!

First-runner up!

And all the vain pots below...

All in all, great job guys! Another step closer to being a Gold Medalist! The commanders couldn't be prouder of all of you (':


4th Central District Pow Wow | 28-31 May 2014

A camp that you should not have missed! A time where young people from all over Klang Valley gathered for great fun, excitement and the opportunity to know and grow with their Maker. The camp of 440 rangers was held in Nur Laman Bestari, Ulu Yam, and hosted rangers from other neighboring countries as well!

We were privileged to have Rev Gideon Lee and Pastor Chong as our camp speakers.
Rev Gideon Lee is the Senior Pastor of Tabernacle of Praise, Penang (TOP). He has a calling to raise the next generation of leaders empowered to preach the Word and ministers in the power of the Holy Spirit. He also serves as the National Director of the Royal Rangers ministry in Malaysia.
Pastor Chong on the other hand is the Deputy Senior Pastor of Bethel Assembly of God, Singapore. He is also the Deputy National Commander of Royal Rangers, Singapore. He is a dynamic speaker with a passion to inspire young people to be future leaders in God’s kingdom.
In accordance to the theme "More Than Conquerors" from Romans 8:31, the rangers were split into 6 different groups, namely the Samurai, Knights, Ninja, Vikings, Khan and Gladiator. This is War people! Rawrrrrr

If you've missed camp this time round, fret not! We are coming back to you again in 2018. So block your dates already! No reason to miss it again (: See you there!


What's up NEXT??

Stay tuned to find out more about the events and activities coming your way this next half of the year!

Till then, play hard, study hard, work hard, serve hard and love the Lord with all your heart (;
