Going into Kickstart, I was completely and utterly lost. At that point I wasn’t accepted into any university and felt like a fraud. The retreat was incredibly healing for me as my brothers and sisters in Christ rallied around me and reassured me to trust in God’s plan for me and not to place my self-worth on my education level. It was the first ‘yes’ I said to the Lord in a long time.
In surrendering my burdens and heart to Him, I allowed Him to work in His own ways. I even met one of my closest friends now from that retreat! Since then, the Lord has been showering me with His many blessings and I have become even more aware of His blessings and promptings. ‘Come to me all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens and I will give you rest.’ – Matthew 11:28 – Gillian Koh, SIM.
