Going to church has it's benefits.

Church-going boosts economic well-being: study - Yahoo! News

Read the above news from Yahoo.

Indeed, going to church helps you to overcome poverty. God’s blessings come not just spiritually but also materially.

“Doubling the frequency of attendance leads to a 9.1 percent increase in household income, or a rise of 5.5 percent as a fraction of the poverty scale," Jonathan Gruber of the economics department at Massachusetts Institute of Technology wrote in his study.

So to all of you out there, come to church lah.

I wonder whether the study includes people who work in church building like me. More blessings kah?

Praise God for His blessings.

Yesterday, I rearranged the room bed and cupboards. Took me more than half day to finish. Had to clean and clear all the dust, vacumming and mopping the floor. Also managed to throw away lots of rubbish. hehehe at last got rid of some of the small items/decorations that collect dusts. I think the small decorations are put there not so much of beautifying the room but as a dust trapper. Now all of them is trapped in the rubbish dump.

Last night, I asked my wife whether she wants to go shopping. NO answer from her. Amazing, amazing, amazing. Couldn’t believe it. Usually, she will immediately say a resounding “YES!” but last night was total silence. After a while… she said to me….
“No money lah to spend”. No wonderlah. Newey, I then mopped the house floor. Then only I managed to persuad her to go shopping with me at the nearby supermarket.

Pain in the leg

Played football on Sunday in the rain (sort of). It's drizzling but the guys still come and we had fun playing on the wet field. Scored one goal for my team.

But got myself hurt on the leg muscle while tackling one of the player. Now it is still painful. Thank God, the pain is lesser now. Can't wait for Sunday to come.

But Sunday is when I have to preach in Merlimau. Still haven't prepare for it. Then next coming Saturday, have to preach in church service. Also not prepared yet.

Football Coaching

Yesterday, we had our first football coaching under one ex-national player Wong Kuw Fu. It is great to be trained under him.

There are about 22 of us that came for our regular football game every Sunday 5–7pm. And Brother Wong has graciously enough made his time and effort available to train us to be coaches.

Learn 3 basic skills yesterday. Quite tiring after the practice. Had about 40 minutes of game after the practice. We played on a small school field but with “no high ball” rule.

I pray that the standard of the players will improve from now on. Bro Wong said he will come every Sunday. Origianally the plan is that he will only come evey 2nd Sunday of the month to give coaching clinic. Now that he is willing to come every Sunday, that will be an added bonus to us.

At the same time, I will have to talk to the headmaster of the school. In the past, he has not allowed us to play at the school field, but along the way… we sort of ignore that instruction and continued playing there. Will have to assure the headmaster that we would not hold the school responsible for any injuries incurred in the school.
