My most meaningful Christmas ever!!!

Last week i have been quite involved in Christmas activities organized by Wesley Youth... first we go shopping (yay!!!) and buy stuff like rice, cooking oil, milo, biscuits, junk food, canned food and so on and then we wrapped them up... it was a lot of fun doing it and we all hav good fellowship during tat session... after tat we distribute them to the less fortunate ppl... it was really really heart rending and saddening to see there are so many ppl who are sooo much less fortunate than us... i remember auntie Grace was soooooo emotinal when we pass by the illegal housing area, she nearly want to giv out all the presents to them but uncle Daniel say tat it will be endless as there are too many of them to giv... tat time, my heart was wif auntie Grace too, i too was so eager to giv our presents to them but they are outnumbered and we can't do anything about it... then the feeling of helplessness once again feel me up... as a christian we were always told to make a difference to the world and here we are feeling so helpless when we see ppl who are so unfortunate and most importantly some of them don't even know Jesus...
Later we went to visit some family, most of them are widows and bcoz their husbands ran away or pass away and they hav to raise up their children bare handed... i really salute them bcoz despite all the difficulties, they manage to support their family without their husbands (chou nan ren) and on the way, i realize how contented is our church bcoz they are not trying to reach out to these ppl but only stay in their own comfort zone... sorry i hav to say this but i felt tat our church is being too selfish when they only care for themselves but not for others but i like the spirit of out youth bcoz we try to reach out to ppl who are less fortunate and without getting to the front page of the newspaper (not like some who called themselves charity organizations like leo or lion club)
Anyway, really wan to take this chance to thank a couple of ppl... Lawson, Bi Ho, Jonathan, Joanne, Sabrina, Nyuk Hung, Dorothy, Melvin, John, Stanley, Siong Ning, Ah Fong and all the other youths from Wesley... Thank you for ur coorperation in helping to put together efforts for these christmas activities esp the sketch... although we fail the first time during the rehearsal but we never giv up and continue to try and try and re-do everything and sacrifice a lot of time for this sketch... in the end, everything was paid off when we heard the clappings of the audience... hope they were touched by this sketch and get the msg tat we are trying to convey...

last but not least, i hope everyone had a wonderful christmas and Merry Christmas!!!! God bless...
