Sarawak Missions 15' - #2

Hi there, more mission trip testimonies! By Ranger Adam and Ranger Vivien (:
Hope you'll be blessed

Helloo everyboddy. I'm Adam! This is my first Sarawak Missions trip and having been to just one has already given me so many reasons  to come back again. I'll start off by saying this trip has been the most physically testing trip ever. The hike was so tiring and energy consuming but after arriving at the longhouse, the Iban people really welcomed us and probably fed us with all their food and you know what, it was all worth the sweat. The people were so humble and welcoming that it melts my heart. But of course the highlight for me everyday was the night service. The people in the longhouses live on their pepper plantations and being able to see them seeking or craving more of God in their simple lives is the main reason that gives me the urge to come again next year. Being able to bless the people as a team has been an amazing experience. Seeing our bond and unity grow so tremendously in just 7 days has given me the assurance that the next trip there will definitely be better. Been a privilege serving and blessing these people with you rangers!

It was a wonderful experience being able to bless the Iban's people in the longhouses. The past seven days in Sarawak has been wonderful to me. We went to 4 different longhouses. Each longhouse has more than 12 families. I could see the differences in each family and their lifestyle was totally different from us. The children there are so independent, even at 5-6 years old, they have started to go to school and stayed in hostels. If  it were for us, we would probably want our parents to be with us all the time but the children can actually stay alone outside without their parents. They only go back home 2 weeks once, on a Sunday. I was really touched by these children. And the people there were so nice. They gave us lots of food especially pork and rice, hahaha. I could see the joy in their eyes. The exciting part was that I got the chance to ride behind a motorcycle and sat behind a Hilux. It was so exciting. I could feel God's presence with us when we prayed for them. When Cmdrs asked me to pray for them, I really prayed for them with all my heart even though my prayers were not as good as others but God still helped me. Helping out in the Children Ministry really taught me alot. Colossians 3:17 'And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him'. It was not easy handling all the children but God's presence was there all the time. I have no idea about how to take a bath in the river either. Having to do it for the first time was the best thing ever. This year, we had medical clinics with 4 doctors together with us. The doctors were so wonderful and humble. I've never seen such good doctors in my life. Everything ran very smoothly and I had the chance to learn all the medicines. Through this missions trip i have learnt 2 lessons. I started to learn to be appreciative. To appreciate the things that my parents provide for me. And i really thank God for putting me in such a great family. I can get anything from my parents but not for all the children at the longhouses. We like to compare ourselves with kids who were born rich but we never think about the kids that don't even have rice to eat. This really touched my heart. 2nd lesson that i learnt is not to give up so easily. We tend to give up so easily but the people at the longhouses chose to surrender their problems to God. There was one family that we prayed for where the lady's husband still hasn't accepted Christ. Yet she kept praying for her husband and asked us to pray for her too. Sometimes we have to wait for God's timing and continue to trust in HIM and not give up so easily. HE will give us more than we ask which reminds me about this verse, Romans 10:13 'Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved'. God Is Good All The Time. First missions trip to Sarawak and definitely many more to come! This missions trip really helped me and I encourage you guys to join us too. Come and experience it for yourself. See you there! - Vivien Teo

Sarawak Missions 15' - #1

Greetings! 3 more days to Christmas! Even as God gave us His greatest gift this season, let's not forget the true meaning of Christmas and remember to take time to give back to the people around us (: As some of you may know, we had 2 teams from our church that went all the way to Sarawak to bless the people of the longhouses and we were proud to see our Expedition Rangers rise up to the occasion so here's an afterthought from our very own Ranger Hans.

Hello! I’m Hans. So, this will be my experience/feeling during Sarawak Missions Trip 2015. It was the 16th of December and the next day was the first day of missions and guess what I was still in Singapore! I was supposed to reach home at about 10pm but my flight was delayed and ended up reaching home at 12am on the 17th, and we were supposed to meet up in church at 3am. I was panicking cause my bags for missions were not packed yet. But all through the rush God managed to give me time to pack which sacrificed my sleeping time. At 3am on the 17th of December, we all gathered in church and checked all our stuffs and we headed to the airport! I was like “Hey airport I’m back after 5 hours again.” After 2 hours, we reached Kuching and we met some doctors and most importantly Pastor Gideon. We all had a nice lunch and we went to the nearest s
upermarket (Giant) to buy stuff needed for missions. After that it was a long 4 hours drive to Betong. All of us planned to sleep but no, we stayed up practicing all the Iban songs instead. We finally reached Betong Sion Baptist Church, we stayed a night there before going to the longhouses. 

The next day, on the 18th, I sat in a van with a few others while the rest took the 4 wheel drive. So we (Team 1) reached a place where we needed to hike to our first longhouse Selangking. I really thanked God when we could sit on motorbikes and not hike all the way (coz there were many slopes). Selangking was the first ever longhouse I had seen and it wasn’t as bad as I expected. After lunch, we then had the chance to witness 5 baptismal candidates willing to follow Jesus and get baptised. I was really touched by their faith in God. Around 8pm, we had our first service, I was told to be in the kids ministry so I didn’t have the chance to stay for the adults service. There were only 7 kids in total but I can tell you, it was not easy. Even with a language barrier, we managed to mingle with the kids with BM and I really thank God they understood fully what Cmdr Trisha was teaching. All in all, I really had fun with the kids, amongst the hype. 

The next day, I woke up early in the morning. We had our morning service and I shared my testimony. I was nervous as I had never shared my life testimony before. After that we went from pintu to pintu to pray for every family and I can feel God’s presence around us. After that we left for our next destination, which was Jelang! This was the bad part as we had to hike for 2 hours! Despite the tiredness, we managed to reach Jelang safely. The people there welcomed us with opened arms. We even played football with the kids! (KL Boys Vs Iban Boys).

Nevertheless, night came and we had our night service. I volunteered myself to the kids ministry again and somehow I never regretted it. Cmdr Trisha explained about how Jesus died on the cross for our sins and asked who wanted to be saved. Suprisingly, all of them raised their hands. God is really planning something in their lives though they’re just kids. Service ended and the hype had not ended. Some of us had to dance their traditional dance so we danced. 

The next morning, we had our morning service as usual and we went from pintu to pintu to pray. This time, God’s presence was stronger than ever. God really gave us the words to speak. We then left for Luing which was our third destination. The clouds were dark and it looked like it was about to rain but God held the rain. Right after we entered Luing, it started raining, and there was where we met team 2. We didn’t plan to stay the night there but our plans changed and we had to. I realized that it wasn’t a coincidence, God really wanted us to stay there. After lunch, we had a clinic set up for the people there. I was helping with the dispensary and it was a successful one. After the clinic before dinner, we had time to mingle with the kids there. I learnt a handful games from them. Its so funny sometimes how you learn more from the kids. We had a night service there and it was great. The next morning, we had a morning service where Pastor Gideon shared. After that, I went to the place where we hung our wet towels and I was there to collect them. As I walked, one of the planks of wooden floor broke and I free fell for a split second. I really thank God it was only a small part where one of my leg went through and I ended up with only bruises. If the hole were to be bigger, I could have fallen 7 feet. 

After that we departed to Kerapa, our last destination. We were welcomed even more and all of us were forced to do the Ngajat. We also had a clinic there and a total of 70 people came. During the night service, team 1 was incharge of the kids ministry and we “entertained” the kids. The next morning, we headed back to Betong and to Kuching where we stayed for a night in Sister Olivia’s church. 

As a conclusion, this was the best trip ever and I would like to encourage all of you to come! You will never regret it! Somehow stepping out of my comfort zones (not having luxurious toilets) really paid off as we had blessed the people there. There is this line from the Bible which is “For those who are great will be made humbled, and those who are humble will be made great.” We should really be humble and share the gospel with everyone. For everyone deserves God’s love!

Kudos Hansies (; We're proud of you!

Green Fingers


We apologize for the recent lack of updates but we hope all’s been well with each one of you (:
Do follow us on Instagram @rrsel6 for more frequent updates and live happenings!

Since it’s been awhile, we’ve decided to feature some pretty AR girls (; *yay!

Ever wonder what’s the first word that pops into someone’s mind when we tell them about Rangers? You’re thinking about CAMPING, OUTDOORS, DIRT, SWEAT, JUNGLE, BOYS, DIRTY BOYS, SWEATY BOYS, JUNGLE BOYS aren’t you
BUT there are a lot of other interesting things to learn in Rangers as well!
Such as some merits that may be of more interest to the girls (:

And so we present to you… The Gardening Merit!

The Gardening Merit is a Green-Bordered Merit that comprises both theoretical knowledge and practical application. In this merit, rangers get to learn the steps of selecting a garden plot site, ways to keep insects, small animals and disease from harming their gardens, the tools of gardening and even how to prepare a compost pile!

Since all that most of us ever planted was taugeh in primary school, it was really exciting to finally be able to plant real edible vegetables!

The first step was to fill the bottom of the pot with coconut husk. Next, the AR girls wait in turn to fill their pots with soil.

Then comes the fun part! The girls planted lady’s finger, bak choy, coriander to name a few.

 And tada! The AR girls with their lil pots of vege. Will it bear fruit? Will it grow? Will we have vegetables to use for Cookarama?! Guess we’ll just have to wait and find out.

Till then, work on those green fingers girls!

Ola peeps! Hope that everyone is having a good week! We are the Adventure Girls and we're going to tell y'all about our experience in JTC. JTC is the abbreviation for Junior Training Camp. It's a camp that trains young men and women to become future leaders and more than 80 rangers throughout Malaysia came and participated the past weekend.

  We went through tough training and gained invaluable experience during camp. We also used our free time to complete projects and did everything together as a patrol. We had to work with rangers from other outposts but through that we were able to make new friends!

  We learnt many outdoor skills and also the Word of God taught by the commanders. We also had the chance to learn about dutch oven cooking! As usual, there is council fire as well which is what we enjoyed the most!

  The most memorable thing about JTC though was the last day.... because it was the day of our graduation! When the commanders announced that we've passed the training camp, what a sigh of relief! Although we were beyond tired, we were really happy as well.

  JTC has changed us. Shaped us to be stronger and more skillful but above that, we were able to grow closer to God. JTC was a great experience. But looking forward, Camporama is happening next year! So see you there! After hearing how great camp is, make sure you don't miss the chance to experience it for yourself too! (:

Signing off,
The Adventure Girls <3

Hear, Hear! #12

Heya! Hope your week's been great so far (:

Another testimony for you from our very own Ranger Valesca. Enjoy!

I first started joining Royal Rangers when I was a kid. Through Rangers, I was able to learn a lot about God and not just God but other skills as well such as cooking, lashing, animals and many more. My first camp and outing can be traced back to when I was still a Discovery ranger. We went to the KL Bird Park and it was a really happy and joyful trip as I was able to get to know the other rangers as well as see various kind of birds which I've never seen in my life. On top of that, I got to see ostrich eggs and eagle eggs too! After a few years, I was promoted to Adventure Rangers where I currently am right now. In the Adventure Rangers age group, there are even more activities such as camping and outings. My first 3 days 2 nights camp was at Sungai Congkak and it was really fun! My family even sent me off to the campsite. After reaching, we unloaded and set up our tents. We also had lunch which we had to cook ourselves. I still remember not knowing how to cook even instant noodles and ended up needing my friends and commanders to help. This first camping trip is one that I will cherish for a long time to come.

Greetings! It's been awhile.. but we hope the weekend's treating you well!

Here's a read from Ranger Keerthana (:

Everyone has to favor something in life. We either favor an object, a person and etc. My favorite thing to do during my leisure is to attend Royal Rangers. Royal Rangers consists of awesome kids and teens which are dedicated to learn God's word and other cool stuff such as backpacking, building fire, communication and many more.Till this very day, I have had an amazing experience learning in Royal Rangers along with my beloved buddies.
          I can still picture my first day joining the Royal Rangers community. As always, I was simply nervous because I had to get used to a totally new environment and faces. It was even terrifying when I knew that every single eye was staring at me from head to toe and some people talking in a language that I was not familiar with. With God's help I easily slipped away from my fears and met some new people. I  also joined my first Royal Rangers camp.Camp was nowhere near my expectations because it was the worst camp I've attended. We worked our sweat off to finish our achievements. Even though it wasn't dreamworld I still won't regret going for that camp ,as I've learnt many skills for a 12 year old.
         Along the way, I feel ashamed to say that I had missed many classes of rangers because my laziness took control of me. My absence in class made it hard for me to cope up with my merits and it was even tougher to have close friends. Slowly I was losing myself and had completely no interest in coming anymore. Like every other person, I had my very own turning point in life. In 2014, I was excited when I got word that our outpost was organising the annual outpost camp for the year.I believe that we should live life to the fullest so I filled up the form right on the spot.
         I learned that we should always expect for the unexpected because I benefited alot throughout camp and had a whale of time. It wasn't so great on the first day of camp but it definitely was the most fantastic camp after that. I somehow got to know people even better and took the courage to be open with them. My courage helped me get a handful of friends which are my best buddies until this day. It's kind of funny because language doesn't seem to be a barrier among us. On the other hand, there were many challenging projects along with exciting games in camp.
        Since then, attending rangers has been a sense of relieving school stress. I thank God for providing me with the right knowledge and people thus I love my friends. They are very friendly and don't separate me away from them. I won't forget my supportive commanders which encouraged me and lent me a hand in times of trouble. In the end, I would love to conclude that things happen in our life for a reason. It may seem bitter at first but later we will come to know that it is a blessing from God. 

Have a great weekend everybody! And see you at rangers 1.30pm sharp tomorrow (;

TGIF! A testimony to welcome the weekend.

I am Tan Jia Wen. 13 years old this year. I joined Royal Rangers since 2013. I started attending Rangers because my brothers invited me. In Rangers, there are a lot of activities such as Cookarama, Outpost Camp, Pow Wow and more. I've joined Pow Wow, Outpost Camp, AR Camp and Cookarama. I learn about God from the bible lessons that are taught. I've also learnt about fire safety, camping, nature study, communication and more from the commanders. There are 4 age groups which are Rangers Kids, Discovery Rangers, Adventure Rangers and Expedition Rangers. Each age group has 2 or more patrols. In our own patrol, we cooperate together and create song and yell for the patrol. In my patrol, I learned how to cooperate with other Rangers. When I was 12, I joined Adventure Rangers. After a few weeks, I had a lot of friends. They are kind, funny and helpful. We always work together as a team. Every time I talk to them, I feel very happy. About a month ago, the Adventure Rangers went to Bukit Cahaya to collect wood and leave samples for our Nature Study merit. Some of us cycled while some of us walked. Halfway through, I felt very tired that I almost fainted. Two of the AR commanders, Cmdr. Phaik Joo and Cmdr. Trisha helped me. They fanned me, asked me to drink more water and bought a bottle of 100Plus for me. I felt so much better at the end and I am very thankful to my commanders that helped me when I needed help and I learnt that my commanders will be there for me every time. So, during Outpost Camp, we went hiking and I proved to my commanders that helped me that I can do it without help and not feel tired anymore. At the end of the hike, I felt very happy that I made it. I did feel tired but I did not faint. I am proud of myself. The commanders and the Rangers helped me a lot. I am very thankful for my brothers who invited me to Rangers and helped me in Rangers. I am also very thankful to my commanders and also my friends. Royal Rangers taught me the best lessons, is the best place for me to be and the best place to learn about life. This is Home.

We're truly glad that you came to join our big family Jia Wen (: Here's to doing life together for many more years to come!

Hear, Hear! #9

Hey guys! My name’s Xing Yi and I’m going to talk about my experiences in Royal Rangers!

So technically I have been in Rangers for approximately 10 years now. started when i was 5, and now I’m 15 years old! To start this off, i would like to explain to you what Royal Rangers is. Royal Rangers is a mentoring program that provides Christlike character formation and servant leadership development for ages as young as 5 to 17 in a highly relational and fun environment.

In Rangers, everything is done in a really friendly environment ; around amazing and friendly people. The things done in Rangers go from bible studies trto getting your merits done! There are several groups a ranger will be in. Starting with Ranger Kids (from ages 5-9) to Discovery Rangers (ages 9-11) then Adventure Rangers (ages 12-14) and after that to Expedition Rangers (ages 15-17).

Now back to my experiences in rangers. As i started at the age of 5, i was in Ranger Kids. I didn’t like it at first to be honest because i didn’t know anybody there and i was a really shy kid (still am by the way). I stopped Rangers for a week or two but came back in after that. Made some friends and that was where all the fun began. There was the running, chasing, colouring, memorising bible verses. That was seriously all the fun.

When I came up to Discovery, some harder work was given. This doesn't mean the fun stopped though. The new level of fun came in which was something that might be familiar to you. CAMPS. My first ever camp was to Camporama 2009. Going to that camp was an amazing experience for anyone who likes the outdoors and like well the jungle. There was tons of really interesting and very enjoyable games ; some individual, others in groups.

I really enjoy going to camps, especially Outpost Camps. It brings tons of joy to everyone who goes for them. You get to learn how to cook or lash and a bunch of other skills. Lets not forget about the games and competitions though.

Now stop wait a minute, i also have learned tons of amazing bible lessons from rangers! Like when Noah built the ark or when Abraham led the israelites out of Egypt. It’s not that i don't know but i actually get to understand them a lot better.

As a conclusion, rangers really can shape people up. Not really in a physical way (that can work too, either way) but more in a way on how we think. How we look at things around us.

Indeed Royal Rangers provide Christlike character formation and servant leadership development for boys and girls in a highly relational and fun environment.  Our mission is to evangelize, equip, and empower the next generation of Christlike men and women and lifelong servant leaders. Here's to building many more generations for His kingdom!

Hear, Hear! #8

This week we have a life testimony from our very own Ranger Josephine!

I started joining Rangers back in 2010 when I was ten. I'm thankful for my mum who introduced me to the Royal Rangers ministry. Without fail, she would fetch me to church every Sunday and pick me up once Rangers is over. I first joined Discovery Rangers.

After joining Rangers for awhile, I finally went for my first outdoor camping trip which was the Royal Rangers outpost campout during March 2013. I had such a wonderful time at camp together with the rangers and commanders. It was during the camp that I came to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as my personal Savior. I took the step of faith and courage and walked to the front and said the sinner's prayer. Since then, I have always felt the joy of the Lord in my life and I also feel the peace that surpasses all understanding.

How has Rangers impacted me? Well, Rangers has helped me to come to know the Lord and taught me various life skills and knowledge that I would not be able to learn in school. I became more independent and I expanded my social circle as well. I'm proud to be a part of Royal Rangers ministry. All praise to God :)

Amen! Indeed receiving the Lord as our personal Savior is the best decision we can ever make. We're so proud and happy for you Jo. May you continue to grow in beauty and stature with the Lord (:

Hear, Hear! #7

My name is Shiew Ying. I started joining Royal Rangers since I was 12 years old. My favourite thing about Rangers is camping. My first camp was Camporama 2012, it was a memorable one. I like this camp because we got to know more new friends and there were many types of games such as dodge ball, flying fox and many more. There are also other camps in Royal Rangers Selangor #6 such as outpost camp, JTC, and ER Survival Camp. Outpost camp is a camp where all Royal Rangers Selangor #6 gather together. I like the activities in Outpost Camp because there are games, council fire, morning parade and hiking. This year, Outpost Camp was held at a different venue. We usually camp at Gombak but this year's camp location was Kuala Kubu Bharu. Last year, there was a major camp called Pow Wow, I like that camp too because the activities were extremely fun just like Camporama! And that's why I like Royal Rangers so much!

Woohooo! Camping indeed is fun! More often than not it's through camping that we get to know each other better as well as grow stronger in the Lord (: 
And yes! Camporama will be back next year. Mark your calendars!

Hear, Hear! #6

Happy Tuesday!

Here's another post from the Hear, Hear! series but this time round we're featuring the Adventure Girls instead!

Just in case you don't know what this is all about...

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 in conjunction with the Gold-bordered Communication Merit that the Adventure Girls are achieving, we're going to post stories about how Royal Rangers has impacted their lives. Do keep a lookout for more and hear what they have to say! Here's one from Ranger Nicole Tan (:

My name is Nicole Tan. I started joining Rangers since I was 10 years old. I'm now 14 and in Adventure Rangers. My favourite activity in Rangers is camping. My first camp was Camporama in 2012. It was a memorable camp as various outposts all over Malaysia got together and represented various states, we went as Johor! There were lots of activities and games and among them dodge ball is my favorite! There are also other camps we have in our own outpost Selangor #6 such as Outpost camp, AR Camp, ER Survival camp and many others. Outpost camp is a camp where the whole of Royal Rangers Selangor #6 gather together. The activities are fun! There are hiking, council fire, morning parade and more. This year we went to a different campsite. We usually have it at Gombak, but this year was at Kuala Kubu Bahru. There were many fun incidents and happenings as new year new season! Some of the Adventure Rangers got "Colgated" by toothpaste during the last night at Outpost camp. And.... we did that (;  hehe

Last year, there was also a major camp called Pow Wow. It was an extremely fun camp just like Camporama! But sadly it rained heavily the whole afternoon and we had to use old cloths and newspapers that we brought to wipe the tents which meant that we couldn't play games. Yet although we couldn't play games, we enjoyed ourselves nonetheless. These are my experience in Rangers. What about you? (;

Love your excitement for camps Nicole! Really encourages us commanders that all we do for you rangers are worth it (:
And we've finally found our Colgate culprit! Better be careful Nicole, you might be next hehe
Continue to shine for God ya!

Much love from us all

AR @ Bukit Cahaya


What else other than cycling when it comes to the famous Bukit Cahaya outing right?
Presenting you the always-hyper-full-of-energy Adventure Rangers of Selangor #6 and their mighty bicycles!

The Adventure Rangers are currently completing their Nature Study Merit which requires them to collect and identify leaves, seeds, flowers, birds, insects and everything nature. So off to Bukit Cahaya we went! 

Here's Cmdr Reuben and the Adventure Rangers who are busy identifying trees
Picking up leaves in a line? Such disciplined order! but also a few seconds before Ranger Daniel accidentally fell into the drain. aiya.. but no worries! He's fine (:

Besides picking leaves and flowers, we got to see some animals too!
Deers vs Ranger Boys. Who's cuter? You be the judge! hahaha

And a group picture to end the day (:

Can't thank God enough for good weather and safe protection!
But after all the fun, Adventure Rangers do remember to flatten your leaves, wood, flowers, identify them accordingly and bring them back next week!
Another step closer to receiving your  Nature Study award!

Song & Yell!


As usual, the start of the year always entail the presentation of new songs and yells! And as promised.. here's a short clip of some of the songs and yells presented during last Sunday's opening!

Click HERE to view! Enjoy (;

And good job to all you rangers who came up with such creative songs and yells! But of course as the professional basketball player Tim Duncan once said:  

 'Good, better, best. 
Never let it rest. 
Until your good is better
 and your better best.'

There's always space for improvement! So it should be safe to say that the commanders can expect to see even better presentations and standards during next month's opening yes? (;

Keep up the good effort guys!

First Aid - CPR

The First Aid - CPR is a required merit to earn the Gold Medal of Achievement. But firstly, what does CPR stand for? CPR is the abbreviation for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR). Where Cardio refers to the heart, Pulmonary refers to the lung and Resuscitation means to revive from death or unconsciousness. Needless to say, it is important to remember that CPR can help save lives! Of course CPR alone is not enough to save lives in most cardiac arrests. However, it is a vital link in the chain of survival before the victim is able to get advanced support.

In line with the above, it is of importance that our rangers are equipped with the basic first aid knowledge in order to always be ready! Ready to respond to any accidents or injuries and give aid to the victim.

So tonight, the Expedition Rangers despite having school in the morning, came to church for their CPR test!

There are two parts to the CPR test. A theory and a practical test. The latter can be seen below where Ranger Jia Jun performs the CPR on Resusci Anne, also known as Rescue Anne, Resusci Annie or CPR Annie, a model of training manikin used for teaching cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).
And we have Cmdr Mike Kuna with us, a certified CPR training instructor who has been faithfully teaching First Aid in the various outposts. Thanks Cmdr Mike!

And here's a very stressed out Ranger Erwin
But guess what! Kudos to all of them as they've all passed their practical test tonight! Woohooo!! See, no reason to stress la Erwin :P Now to just wait for the results of their theory test (; *fingers crossed!

Good job guys! The commanders honor the effort you all put in to attend classes at night and do extra studying (:

Another step closer to becoming a certified first aider! (:

Signing off for now and we shall see you all Sunday!
Song and yell for the year 2015 coming right up (;

Hear, Hear! #5


It's been awhile.. but fret not! Selangor #6's blog will be up and running again even as we've kicked start the new year (: Hope all of you have been enjoying rangers so far! We can't wait to see all the beautiful standards and imaginative song and yells during our next opening (; (YES. Be prepared or be squared *evil laughs*)

Today we're bringing you the 5th  of the Hear, Hear! series featuring all that the Expedition Rangers have to say. Here's one from our very own RangerYuan Qi on the "Value of Rangers to me". Enjoy!

Hi, my name is Ewe Yuan Qi, 18 this year, and it’s my 10th year in Rangers. I enjoy every moment during Rangers, and I look forward to every Rangers meeting and campouts, because it is fun and awesome!

Rangers teach me new things, things that make me feel special. Going through JTC is tough but it trained me up, and I got to use my fire skills, cooking skills, rope skills during the camp. Before I joined the camp, I was the kind of person who liked to take all the responsibility and do it on my own. I thought it will be better if I were to do it on my own. After joining JTC, I realized that group work and job distribution are very important so all work can be done faster and better. I’ve learned that there will always be someone who will help us and we will also have the chance to help the others when time comes. Besides that, I got the chance to experience both luxurious and tough campouts. I enjoyed Camporama, Powow and outpost camp, especially during the campfire at night.

Rangers gives me a different social circle, with different kinds of people. I speak Chinese all the time in school, but during Rangers, I speak English with the commanders and other Rangers. Because of that my English has improved! Apart from that, I get to know more about the bible and Jesus through doing 'Sprit Challenge'. Sometimes it teaches me how to solve dilemmas in our daily life. It’s like studying cases and getting to know the solutions to events that has yet to happened and that will help prepare me for when the time comes. Besides, I am able to gain experience from commanders and other rangers when they share their testimony about their life in society, school and with God. I like the games played during Rangers, it is really interesting, and I’ll never get bored playing those games.

Rangers trains my ability to organize my time. Although I have a busy lifestyle, but still, I can squeeze out some time to exercise and also play music instruments. Doing the GMA gives me the opportunity to explore new things and knowledge. I got to learn nature through nature study, learn to interact with family members through family life merit, and learn about the global issues through International merit. I’m able to create a better lifestyle by exercising everyday while doing the entire Physical Fitness requirement. For the bible study merit, I like Spirit Challenge exercises that we do  because Spirit Challenge helps us to understand Jesus more and on how to apply it in our life.

I want to thank my parents who introduced me to join Rangers 10 years ago, without them I will never have the chance to get to know about Rangers. I also want to thank all the commanders who lead me and give me chances to make mistakes so I get to learn more. Rangers has been a part of me and I’m glad to be a part of it. 

Wow! God is good indeed. We're so glad that you're thoroughly enjoying yourself in Rangers while growing and learning at the same time Yuan Qi! There's so much potential in you. Don't ever let it go to waste. And we are definitely looking forward to see you attain the highest award a ranger can ever achieve, the GMA! Continue rocking it on for Jesus! (:
