Royal Rangers wins 2nd place in Christmas Nativity Deco Contest

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”

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!

ER Leadership Course

By Gordon Yong

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.

1st Things First!

RR KL#1 Derby 2015 trophy

There is a special ring to any event that has the word ‘first’ added to it. Such was the case for the KL#1 Father & Ranger Derby… It was the first of its kind for the KL#1 outpost, for Calvary Church and for Royal Rangers in Malaysia!

Ranger Derby is a project for Fathers & Rangers to design and build a car out of a block of pinewood before finally racing against other teams. This event is organised by Royal Rangers outposts all over the world and we are proud to be the first outpost in Malaysia to host this event.

It was also the first for most, if not all, of the participants. However, it being a first-time challenge did not deter an overwhelming 30 parents and 36 Rangers from signing up. This was shown in the superb workmanship that many teams put into the design of their cars.

Participants were given three weeks to design and build their car in time to submit for judging on Father’s Day 2015. Cars were given design specifications to meet, including the incorporation of the theme of the event, “Seek Ye First”. Pastor Peter Ong, Pastor Lee Peng and Councilman David Peter had a tough time judging scores for the 36 cars as some of the cars were very well designed.

The Derby event also encouraged children without dads to sign-up with a sponsor to promote the father image; Jothi from Calvaryland and sponsor Max working on her car

The Derby race was held on the following Sunday. Praise God for the Multi-Purpose Hall of Calvary Convention Centre that was big enough to house the 30-foot long racetrack and over 200 parents and Rangers who were invited to witness the races. We were blessed to also have special guests with us, Senior Pastor and Sister as well as commanders from Selangor #9, Metro-tabernacle.

Excitement was in the air even before the race started as participants gathered around the Derby car display area to proudly point out their cars to their family and friends. The race began with Derby emcee Commander Samuel Soong and Race Manager Commander Kah Yun welcoming the audience and explaning the rules for the race.

The names of each car owner were read out as the cars were prepared for each race. Cars were categorised and raced according to the respective groups, Ranger Kids, Discovery Rangers and Adventure Rangers. Kids would gather around the finish line area, especially those whose cars were next up to race, so they could get a first-hand witness to see which car would pass through first.

At the end of all heats, a final race was held to determine the Race Champion. It comprised of the first placed winners from each Heat category. It was certainly a fun-filled first family event!

The 20 Rangers that attended DTC were divided into 3 team patrols and were required to create patrol songs, yells and flags as a group.

The level of teamwork displayed was amazing as the children rose to the challenge to complete the patrol tasks; some even took the initiative to meet before breakfast and sit together during meal times to practice their songs and yells.

Everyday duties were rotated among patrol members so each ranger received a chance to serve either as a patrol leader or quartermaster or scribe.

The Rangers also participated in Olympic Games and class activities that were designed to teach teamwork and objective principles like making right decisions and punctuality.

The highlight was the council of fire held on the last night of camp. This is the time the patrols presented their songs and yells and skits they have prepared.

 

During the campfire, Chaplain Pastor Steven Kum shared a devotion about how a nice car may look good on the outside but without fuel, it will not run. Similarly having medals and merits will look good on the outside but without the Holy Spirit we cannot run the Christian life.

By the end of the camp, the patrol teams had done well in their teamwork and leadership and this was reflected in the hard work and dedication they had put together during the 3 days.

This effort was reflected in each of the 3 patrol teams all receiving the Gold Medal of Excellence from the Camp Commander which they proudly could display on their patrol banner.
