Reaching Out with the Love of Christ

by Susanna Cordova

On the 22nd February 2020, once again the Star of Yahweh Covenant Community (SYCC) was compelled to spend their monthly fellowship with the Christian student from Maktab Rendah Sains MARA (MRSM) and Sekolah Seni Sandakan for the sake of love and kindness towards others. As usual the young and old in the community would work together hand in hand to make the monthly program run smoothly. This is another way for the SYCC who is desire to minister to the other community in our church as well as to be closed with one another.

This time we highlighted to those who are behind the scene in this program. We grouped ourselves into two groups; the seniors and youths whom have their own tasks to do. Early in the morning, the seniors’ men were busy arranging the chairs at the hall while the women would start their special menu to cook for the students. As the youth would be very busy preparing for the music instruments and setting up the LCD for the singing, praising, games and group sharing.
Group sharing and faith formation
Since this fellowship program started more than five years ago, SYCC unceasingly reaching out for the young, especially to those students who are far from their families and thirst for Christ’s love. It is also an opportunity to teach them how to give without receiving and the importance of being the light in the dark world. Acts 2:39 says, “For God’s promise was made to you and your children, and to all who are far away-all whom the Lord our God calls to himself.”
Phillip Mosinoh who is the elder of SYCC said this is one of the visions and missions of the Sandakan Diocese to share the good news to others. At the same time to build a good formation for the students spiritually by not only giving them food to eat but spiritual food as well.
Veronica Chai, one of the ladies in the community said, “Doing this kind of service is a family day and having a happy time in the community whereby we could work together, sharing and supporting towards one another with Christ’s love.”
Timothy James, one of the SYCC youths was gladly said he was happy with joy to give his very best for the Lord when doing this kind of service for the students. “It has been always a privilege to help and care for the students. It is through God’s grace that I am able to spread His love for the students. I felt blessed and glad that there is a feeling of joy to do God’s work. I am called to give ONE MORE for Him.”

The students enjoyed the fun activities which were carried out by the SYCC youths; the praising and singing as well as the games builds the relationships between them, and the devotional time gives them the opportunity to ask spiritual questions.
The SYCC youths are doing their part to give service to others.
