All Life groups @ New Life PJ participated in the Good Deeds on Good Friday Campaign. We are featuring two reports over 2 weeks representative of the wonderful work that was done by the whole church.
Reported by Harry Haridas
Someone once mentioned that we are most like Christ when we give. In giving of our time, our talents and our treasures we become a little more like Christ. Christ who gave up everything in heaven and even his life, not just for the ones that received and accepted him as their saviour, but also for the world as well.
Our Life Group had a little Easter gathering at the home of one of my students from New Life Damansara Damai Myanmar School. Tete, who is 13, lives with her granny, an uncle and a 9-year-old sister. Nine of our Life Members, together with three of my students, filled up the small home.
After our fellowship dinner, we gathered the kids for some Easter activities that recounts the days leading to Christ’s crucifixion and resurrection. The main message of Jesus’ sacrifice and obedience was done through matching pictures to the event. Though their response was a little limited perhaps due to language barrier, the four children listened attentively, and seemed to have understood. We also prayed for Tete’s family, especially her grandma who had been afflicted with some health issues.
Reflections from our Life Group members:
It was Good (in) Deed to see the Myanmar refugee families touched with the little things that we brought.
The thirteen floors worth of stairs and the humidity was a challenge but having a meal together, teaching about Easter and praying for them was worth it all.
Our Life Group mission for this year is to visit them again, to have different activities to connect with them better.
