Curriculum Sharing

  • Building Friendships

    Since the start of this competition, we have never won a match but through this competition we were able to make new friends from other places and have made stronger friendships within our team. It doesn't matter if we win or lose as we all still had fun. I also hope that through this competition pre-believers will come to know God through the sharings.

  • The One Who Will Be There For Me

    In the first curriculum of this Crossroad league, we have learnt that everybody would have faced one of the darkest time in their lives, be it failing your studies, or breaking up with your girlfriend. This is a story of my darkest time in my life. It was when my grandpa passed away last November.

  • Passing on the Blessings

    Then Peter came up and said to him, “Lord, how often will my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times?” Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you seven times, but seventy-seven times. “Therefore the kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who wished to settle accounts with his servants.

  • God Wants To Heal You

    Throughout my time as an athlete, I've seen people getting injuries during the course of their game, mostly ankle sprain in the game of basketball. Personally, I'm very thankful that not even once did I sprain my ankle or suffer any physical injuries to the extent that I had to stop playing. For those who are familiar with the bible will know that there are many instances of miracle healing in the past compared to the present where we rarely see miracle healing.

  • Planning to Win

    In preparations for a basketball match, coaches and players would have a plan to compete with opponents based on their strengths and weakness. Teams plan out a game plan to achieve a certain goal which in our case, we practices set pieces, we train on our ball handling, shooting, chemistry and etc. However, in a game, unforeseen circumstances can still happen which causes the plan not to go smoothly.

  • Win or Lose, We Praise God

    Since we started playing against other teams, we have never won one game. We only came close but still lost. But we still had fun.

  • Don't Stop Shooting

    Being the coach of team ASC is a daunting task. Undoubtedly, it is an absolute privilege and honor to coach a team filled with talent and passion. However, having the pressure of coaching this group of individuals to come together as a team is a challenging task.

  • Encouragement From Team

    As this was only my second competitive game with Kairos, I still had the nerves going into the game. However, as the warm-ups went on, I felt more at ease as I knew I had the support from my other teammates who were all also longing to get our first victory! Throughout the course of the game, it was a great experience and bonding time with this team as I only recently joined.

  • A Game of Nerves

    The game against ASC was a tough one. It was not as we expected. It was a tight game.

  • Many Players, One Team

    1 Corinthians 12:12-26 The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though all its parts are many, they form one body. So it is with Christ. For we were all baptized by one Spirit into one body-whether Jews or Greeks, slave or free-and we were all given the one Spirit to drink.

Planning to Win

In preparations for a basketball match, coaches and players would have a plan to compete with opponents based on their strengths and weakness. Teams plan out a game plan to achieve a certain goal which in our case, we practices set pieces, we train on our ball handling, shooting, chemistry and etc. However, in a game, unforeseen circumstances can still happen which causes the plan not to go smoothly. Injuries, opponent counter strategies or team mates fumbles and the uncertainty of making that basket can cause us the match. Supposedly the game plan is to allow us to win, to succeed in the game but when we lost the game, how do we comprehend that?

Now compare this to my life, I planned to be a successful designer and did research to be as specific as I can in order for me to achieve what I want to be, a footwear designer. I look into schools that I can go and the working experiences from schools internship and self-initiated. But I have learnt throughout the years that as much as I can plan, they may not be the best for me. Eg. I planned to study animation after I completed my O levels, but ended up in Product design. I planned to get into the desired companies for internship but ended up in a different type of design company. I learnt that it is because God already had a plan for me. My plans are not the best but certainly His plans are because God knows me the best. And God's first step of the plan is always wanting me to know Him, to have a relationship with Him. The bible tells me that I can only have a relationship with God through Jesus and this relationship is given to use, waiting for us to see it and accept it.

Having say that, I am still planning on what to do with my life, however when I do not get want I planned, I do not get very disappointed because I know God has a plan for me, a much better life plan than mine.

Matt 6:33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

Seek first the relationship with God and all the good and right things from God will be given.
