There is a century-old new village in Jelebu, Negeri Sembilan - Kampung Titi. Although there is the word "port" in the Chinese name “Zhi Zhi Port”, Titi has no port. In fact, Titi is an inland area surrounded by mountains and rich in natural resources. According to the sixth episode of the "8TV" YouTube channel "After the New Village", "Zhi Zhi" is transliterated from the Malay Titi (small bridge). Because it is the basin of small rivers, it is commonly called "port" by residents, which is the origin of the name Kampung Titi.
Kampung Titi, which seems to have a beautiful environment, suffered its worst flood two years ago on December 18, just before Christmas. At that time, 7979 teamed up with Love Seremban to mobilize 16 volunteers and set up a team to help the victims clean their houses after the flood in Kampung Titi. In addition to cleaning houses, volunteers on behalf of 7979 and Love Seremban distributed aid money to the victims. Rev Jacqueline Wong of the 7979 Holistic Care Station of Full Gospel Mission Centre Jelebu really appreciates what 7979 and Love Seremban did for them during the disaster relief. After the incident, some disaster victims wanted to express their gratitude by donating money to organizations that assisted them during the disaster, so they came to the church from a distance of 18 kilometres to donate RM 100, and it was a continuous donation. The pastor was moved by the actions of the victims and thanked the organizations that helped with the disaster relief.
Full Gospel Mission Centre Jelebu joined 7979 Holistic Care Relief Network and established 7979 Holistic Care Station for quite some time already. According to the pastor, the local elderlies are lonely and desperate to be loved and cared for. Full Gospel Mission Centre Jelebu has always been promoting care for the elderly, such as visitation. In normal times, the church would apply to Manna Food Bank for the elderly to meet their basic living needs. However, Pastor Jacqueline Wong sighed and commented on the small population in the township and the lack of manpower and material resources to help the elderly...
On August 26, 2023, the 7979 Holistic Care Station of Full Gospel Mission Centre Jelebu became the first stop of "7979 Bas Bahagia – Warming Up Your Heart" (trial run). "When I learned that the purpose of the 7979 Bas Bahagia is to go to the remote villages and help the underprivileged elderly. I decided to join the 7979 Bus Bahagia project. This is because there are many "lonely" elderly people living alone in the townships of Kampung Titi, for their children have been working away from home for a long time, and they rarely return home. As a result, the emotional and life aspects of the elderly are not attended to, and they also face economic and health issues." Pastor Jacqueline Wong explained the reasons why the church participated in the 7979 Bus Bahagia project. After listening to the pastor's sharing, I can feel her genuine concern for the elderly.
When the elders received volunteer services, Pastor Jacqueline Wong was happy to see their faces beaming with happy smiles and they felt accepted here. Some elderlies have also changed their perception towards the church: they believe that the church is a place full of love regardless of class status.
"I feel loved and cared for."
A beneficiary shared his joy with us.
To be loved is a kind of happiness,
regardless of age, identity and status.
森美兰州日叻务县有座长达百年的新村——知知港。“知知港”虽有“港”字，但知知港没有港口。其实知知港是内陆地区，环山围绕，拥有丰富的天然资源。根据“8TV 八度空间”YouTube频道《新村之后》第六集资料显示：“知知” 是由马来文的 Titi（小桥）音译而来。由于此地是小河川流的盆地，故居民普遍称之为“港”， 这就是知知港名字的由来。
