7979 Penang Flood Response Operation
Penang Disaster Relief Operation
Reflection after ministering
In the process, I have to respect the view of the disaster victim, what can be thrown or what cannot, it is all trial to me.
Word by Venes
Extract from 7979 magazine issue: Mac 2018
Praise the Lord! I am one of the 60 members in Calvary City Church and Pusat Kebajikan Kalvari Johor formed group which served in Penang Disaster Relief and Response.
Although, these 3 days of program really worn me out, after each busy day, we’ll just dropped onto the floor or at a chair and fell asleep. Nevertheless, through this program I noticed something different, I found that when we contributed back to the society, it was always a very touching moment when we looked at those grateful expressions of aid recipients.
I’m actually not a very patient person, but in the process, I have to respect the view of the disaster victim, what can be thrown or what cannot, it is all trial to me.
7979 team is a Christian group. Therefore, every day before we start to do anything, we’ll always started the day with a prayer, it is so great to serve the Lord in unity. Our action is a good representation of this.
This flood had also let me rethink, that I should not be too concern with what happened in this world, just one flood, it can cause damage to so many things. I should focus on following our Lord, remain faithful to my work, do my part, work on my relationship with the Lord, put my eyes on my Father’s home in heaven. I wish that everyone everyday can experience good relationship with our Lord. Love others as we love ourselves, live out the fragrant of Christ.
