A trek up Johor’s Mt Ophir was a highlight of a retreat for Church of the Holy Trinity parishioners.

Of the 24 who took part in the Dec 2-4 Bible-Centred Retreat in Johor, led by Fr Albert Ng, the fittest 10 who pledged to climb the summit slowed down for the wearied, and they, as a team, reached halfway up the summit or 554 m. The ascent (left) proved tough in some parts and climbers had to grab onto trees and ropes.

One participant shared on her Facebook page, “Throughout this retreat I learnt nothing is impossible through Him ... through the power of the Holy Spirit.”

According to Fr Albert, the mountain trek was to help retreatants encounter God in nature. BY ANASTASIA AL
