From 29 October to 3 November 2011, two Royal Rangers Commanders from Calvary Church Malaysia, Jim Guneratnam and Samuel Ngeow along with six Commanders from Singapore, Chia Eng Kiat, Wu Tze Chong, Aaron Lim Weng Kang Ng, Joseph Chan, Ng Swee Har and Edina Choo, were on a missions trip in Cebu, Philippines to conduct the Leadership Training Academy. The training was organized by the Cebu-lower Leyte District of the Philippines General Council of the Assemblies of God and held in Mt. Olives Christian Academy was attended by a total of 87 trainees.
The training which ran for three days, from 31 October to 2 November, covered Ranger Fundamentals and the Leadership Training Courses to provide all that is necessary for the trainees to be able to start a local outpost in their Church upon completion of the course. Hosted by Pastor Emerose T. Nemenza, the district coordinator, 18 churches from the Cebu Eastern Section participated in this Leadership Training Academy which is the first to be conducted by Royal Rangers International in the Philippines.
Before the training began, Commander Jim, who was also the Royal Rangers International Asia Pacific Coordinator, shared at the Celebration of God’s Goodness Church on Sunday. His message entitled “Faithful or Famous?”, encouraged leaders to serve with faithfulness rather than with the intent of seeking fame resonated within the congregation, stirring their passion for serving God as well as setting the tone for those who were attending the training the next few days.
|On 30 August 2011, a group of 32 people from Calvary Church went on an expedition to climb Mount Kinabalu. It was definitely a very exciting and challenging experience. We left Kuala Lumpur at 7.15am and arrived at Kota Kinabalu International Airport at almost 10am. There, we took a bus to Mount Kinabalu, only stopping for lunch and a little shopping. Accommodation throughout the trip was amazing. I had expected somewhat basic dorms and food but thankfully, I was proven wrong.|
The Adventure Rangers went on a outing to FRIM (Forest Reserve Institute of Malaysia) and the TUDM (Tentera Udara Di Raja Malaysia) Museum to complete their Nature Study and Aviation Merits.
|A group of 17 Discovery Ranger boys and 5 Commanders gathered in Calvary Church at 8.15am for the outing, mainly to finish up some of their advancement requirements (Lashing Merit and Cooking Merit). After a short devotion and briefing, we headed towards Sg Congkak which is about an hour away from town. Along the way, we picked up 2 Rangers attending RR in PACC.|

On November 25, 12 Adventure Ranger boys and 2 Adventure Ranger girls went to Pasir Puteh Resort, Kalumpang Resort and Training Centre by vans. All the rangers were expecting to do something fun. Our theme for this camp was “Ready for Anything” (Matthew 24:44).
|Thirty six (36) from our Church participated in the Mount Kinabalu Expedition on the 6 – 10 September 2010. Praise God for a successful expedition.
The thought of hiking up Mount Kinabalu never crossed my mind until my eight-year-old son Jin Eu suggested that we should join the Royal Rangers forthcoming excursion to Kota Kinabaluin September. My eldest son Jin Liang and the father had earlier registered for the trip. With five weeks to go, we decided to formulate some plans for training and the easiest was to train twice per week at Gasing Hill.
The Royal Rangers had the opportunity to experience the great outdoors at this year’s Calvary Family Camp with our Annual Camp organised as part of the Family Camp programme.
