"Eat little at a time, and only at need. For these things are given to serve you when all else fails. The cakes will keep sweet for many many days, if they are unbroken and left in their leaf-wrappings, as we have brought them. One will keep a traveler on his feet for a day of long labour, even if he be one of the tall men of Minas Tirith."

The Fellowship of the Ring, "Farewell to Lorien"


Lembas, also called Elven bread or Waybread in the Common Speech, was a special food made by the Elves in the Lord of the Rings. It was meant to sustain a traveler on his journey. We too, need food for our journey and it is our hope that these stories from our young people would be like food unto your soul as you journey towards Jesus.

The “Science” in our Communities

by Jereme Cheong  Over a year ago, when I first started being more involved in church ministry, I went over to OYP for what I assumed would be a routine briefing on administrative matters. What ensued instead was a very unexpected “praying over” session, where for the first time in many years, I was asked to […]


by Chloe Woo For most of my life, I had neglected the role of the Holy Spirit in the Trinity. I prayed to Jesus, I prayed to God the Father, but somehow, I didn’t pay much attention to the Holy Spirit! It was only through OYP’s School of Witness (SOW) 2017 that I came to […]
