Planting Hope in the Wilderness

By Lawrence Ko

The ecological crisis is an urgent and pressing challenge requiring an immediate and timely response. We seek to respond by creatively raising awareness, mobilising and deploying youths in the process of advocacy and education. Youths can help reduce the complex issues od climate change and global warmning into simpler selected topics for study and response, and thus actively share bite-sized information and practical ideas with their friends in schools and in the community.

We encourage creative action by young people as they mobilise their peers for action programmes such as service-learning journeys, youth expedition projects, youth forums as well as green desert kids club activities. These programmes owned and delivered by young people can unleash the creative energy and fresh ideas from within youths for greener solutions and sustainable lifestyles.

Through our humble tree-plating project in the desertified grassland of Inner Mongolia, we attempt to provide a simple prophetic and symbolic act to plant hope in the wilderness, trusting that there will be life in the wilderness and streams in the desert. Can the Desert be Green? Why not?

1. Out of the 10 inspiring stories of missionaries sent from Singapore, which story do you like best? Why?
2. Do you agree that God has given children a sense of curiosity and a mind full of imagination? At play, they explore the world they live in. The school, the church and the home can provide wonderful opportunities for children to learn about different people and cultures in the wonderful world God has created.
3. How many types of occupations can you list from the 10 missionary stories? Have you started to think about what you would like to do when you grow up?
4. Can you match the missionaries with their occupations? Whether you are a medical doctor or a dental nurse, a pastor or a teacher, a business leader or a community worker, you can serve God in missions using your special interest, talent and training.
5. It is never too early to wonder about life. Many of the missionaries asked questions even when they were young. Some of them experienced bullying, disappointments, unhappiness and even family problems when they were young. They learnt about the purpose of their lives when they started talking to parents, pastors and teachers in church. Do you talk to your parents and teachers about your hopes and fears?
6. Do you realize that God can use your childhood interests, experiences and education to be a blessing to the people around you? Whether it is learning about science, geography, or enjoying the fishing at the beach or making music, it takes hard work to become good at what you like to do. So work hard, play hard and enjoy your childhood.
