Mount Ophir

Here we see a group of men engaged in good clean fun. They are friends of my nephew Michael who is shown in the above photographs; some of  his venture scout friends when they were in St Joseph’s Institution are also here.

I was impressed by the love and camaraderie of these men who still remain as friends to go mountain climbing in Mount Ophir, Tangkat in Malaysia. Some have gone to Mount Everest.

In fact, one of them is Edwin Siew who is the first Singaporean to climb Mount Everest. He shared with the rest the account of his climb. He summited without even an oxygen tank,      and he was eating lots of rice. He is a vegetarian, by the way. What an adventure it must     have been! Thank God for keeping him safe and sound!

David in the red tee shirt is the Expedition leader, together with Edwin and Conrad, and the outing was so well organised in early May this year 2017. One of the men Jeffrey remained at base camp to watch their items. Talk about giving and taking! Thanks for the sacrifice offered! Thanks be to God for their joyful trip.
