Date: 23rd - 26th October 2014
Venue: Panorama Hotel, Taiping, Perak.
Theme: Rest from the burden you bear: Taking on the yoke of Christ in the 21st century (Matt 11v28-30).
Speaker: Mr Ng Kien Lock
The world today is moving at a pace that is fast becoming too much for many to handle, even if most people refuse to acknowledge this. And even when they do, many remain alarmingly ill-equipped to approach their current realities from a truly Christian perspective. The consequences are far-reaching and the results unsettling. Through this year's camp, we hope to explore Matthew 11v28-30 from a contemporary perspective in order to help campers embrace more readily what it means to take on the yoke of Christ even when the so-called "regular" routes look more practical or even enticing. And not just for themselves but those they are responsible for.
Ng Kien Lock has worked in senior management positions as an IT professional in a career spanning almost 30 years, with experience in management, technical work, consulting, marketing and sales. An avid Bible student gifted in preaching and teaching, he is much sought after to share God's word in various settings. He currently serves as a deacon in the Assembly of Christians, a brethren assembly in Kuala Lumpur. During his years in Canada, he served in a Baptist Church and the Navigators. Over the past seven years, he has focused much attention on Creation Science and End Time Prophecies, sharing widely on these at various church and fellowship groups of all denominations. His mission is to strengthen, equip and prepare believers in their faith starting from the very first verse of the Bible, doing so alongside contemporary practical applications and evidences.
Panorama Hotel, situated in the heart of Taiping Town, is within walking distance from shopping
centres, food outlets, heritage trails, commercial shops and many other attractions.
Taiping, the town dubbed Bandar Warisan or Town of Eternal Peace, has a special serene atmosphere of its own and was principally a tin mining town and the former capital of Perak. It has many attractions which include the Taiping Lake Gardens, Bukit Larut aka Maxwell Hill, Taiping Zoo and Night Safari and the oldest museum in Malaysia – The Perak Museum (note: all of these are within walking distance from the hotel).
Located at the foot of Bukit Larut, the Taiping Lake Garden is a lovely man-made lake. It is a popular recreation centre for adults and a playground for children frequented by both local and foreign tourists as a "must-visit" location in Taiping. Its serene beauty and quiet surrounding gives one the feeling of relaxation and peace of mind which lends credence to the meaning of Taiping (Town of Eternal Peace).
Taiping also receives limelight for being the wettest town in Peninsular Malaysia. The average annual rainfall is about 4,000mm in Taiping while the peninsula's average is 2,000mm-2,500mm. Its unusual rainfall has also led to a fertile collection of flora and century-old rain trees in the Taiping Lake Gardens.
