A team of Royal Rangers commanders led by Commander Stephanie designed and made a nativity scene for Calvary’s Christmas Decoration contest.Participating teams were challenged to re-create a nativity scene using different country themes. Royal Rangers selected the country of Sweden.The concept of the scene depicts a manger located next to a fully occupied inn. Swedish elements featured the country’s flag, Dala horses, the IKIA inn (IKEA) and Swedish costumes.Recycled materials used reflect the country’s commitment to recycling 90% waste. The entire stable, manger crib, the characters and animals and surrounding decorations were made out of ice-cream sticks, while the inn was made out of milk cartons. The team’s Royal Rangers emblem was made out of aluminum cans to look like the “Star”.
To add flavour to the stable, the backdrop featured a back-lit wall with an outlined cross that lit up while it was displayed in the CCC concourse area.Congratulations for winning 2nd place and thank you to all commanders who participated.
“On a cold Christmas day in Sweden
Whilst IKIA has a fully occupied inn
The manger next door is humbly occupied by parents
Whose child is born, whose Son is given”
by Commander David Gan
On the 15th December, 19 Discovery Rangers led by Outpost Commander Kah Yun and 10 other commanders, went on an advancement camp in Pasir Putih Resort, Kalumpang to complete their advancement merits.
Prior to the departure for camp, our Outpost Chaplain, Pastor Steven shared a devotional thought emphasizing the importance of teamwork amongst the campers and encouraged them to help each other. He later prayed for the safety of the camp.
The three day & two night camp with the theme “Alight” which is based on John 8:12 provided inspiration for the Rangers to complete their fire craft and lashing merits. Although most of them were first time campers, they managed well and also completed their tasks. Commander Chee Wah demonstrated the Imu Fire or cooking pit as an introduction to cooking their food. On the second day, lunch was prepared and delivered by Commander Stephanie and her ‘food truck’.
The Rangers not only managed to start their own fires, but had to maintain them by feeding wood when necessary. The Rangers were later assisted by the commanders in their lashing projects before taking a well deserved dip in the nearby river to cool off, under the supervision of the commanders.
On the second night, a council fire was held with some leaders arriving the scene dressed as ‘cavemen’. The skit depicted the ‘cavemen’ discovering fire and thus, found hope. Senior Commander Jason shared a devotion on Jesus Christ being the light in our lives which saw 7 Rangers responding to accept our Lord as their personal Saviour.

The objectives of the camp were met and the Discovery Rangers had many memorable moments during the camp. Most importantly, we learned that Jesus Christ is the hope and light in our lives. To God Be the Glory!

On December the 13th a group of Expedition Rangers attended a leadership course that helped the Rangers learn leadership skills that would help in a role such as being a commander if the so wish to be when they come out of the Expedition Rangers outpost.
There were four parts to this course. Each of these parts started off with an activity. The reason for these activities are to understand the importance of a leader. For example the game Magic Carpet, the goal of the game is to flip a carpet while a number of people stand on it. The carpet would never be flipped when everyone is screaming their own idea unless there is one person that guides everyone to do what needs to be done.
After an activity, we had a discussion of the following topics which are the social distinctive – helping people win, equipping distinctive – reproducing leaders, attitude distinctive – being empowered with God’s help, and lastly, the leadership distinctive – empowerment. And each part was concluded with a devotional thought on the respective topics.
Over the last 12 months, various commanders took time off every fortnight to spend time teaching and encouraging refugee children at a preaching point in KL.
Children were very receptive and open to the sharing of the gospel and we hope to continue ministry here in 2017!
