Matthew 25:40

19 09 2009

addresses ” As often as you did it for one of the least brothers of mine, you did it for me.”

It begins, in a place where the location are obscured by the woods and of Stella Maris school.

It begins, therefore, at Ampang in the late  August in a breezy air on a warm afternoon up in Madonna Heights. As soon as we stepped out from the taxi with our handsc04399ds badly infested with bacteria from the train. We, (Jessyca, Gaby and I) were greeted by Sr Angeline with a warm hand shake
We were ushered to the dining hall for a good sip of warm Red Bean  starch soup wf “you tiao”.
in wait for the arrival of another 5 0r 6 delegates.

As we walked to our dorm, this beautiful sheep-cropped turf garden    caught our attention. Looks like Garden of Eden – my heart whispered.

Wookie! I will stop the lengthy story writing. If not, this entry would be as long as Subway’s 1 foot long.

Day 1: I’ve learnt that not all questions have immediate answers. Some are to be left unanswered. But along our journey of discipleship, we have to keep asking these questions to ourselves.

Genesis: Where do you come from?, Where have you come from?, Where are you going?

Psalm 139:7- Where can I go from Your Spirit? Where can I flee from Your presence?

Sessions

Day 2: John 4:39 talks about the Samaritans = ( outcast people) who became believers.

In a related ministry of Jesus :- John 4:1-25 tells us Jesus talks with a Samaritan woman who came to draw water in the noon to avoid the public because Samaritans are the outcast people in the community. She met Jesus at the well, they then discussed about the spiritual “water” which quenches forever the soul’s deepest thirst. Jesus declared that the Father seeks worshipers who worship the Father in spirit and in truth, just as what the Samaritans did.

Evening session, we studied and compared the characteristics of a good and bad shepherd: Ezekiel 34:2-10 (bad shepherd), 11-16 (good shepherd)

Luke 15:1-7 Parable of the Lost Sheep

In an unrelated activities, we produced this:-

Day 3: Reflection: John 21:15-19

Watched the 4th wise man film. The message from the movie: If you spend time tending to the needy and outcast or poor, you are doing these things to CHRIST himself.

Artaban, the 4th wise man sets off his quest to find baby Jesus, along his journey he has done just as what is written in the Gospel of Matthew.

“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.‘ Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ The King will reply, ”I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’”

It began at Pusat Kebajikan Good Shepherd organized by the GoodShepherdSisiters. But it does not end there….

So let our light shine before men as we part that they may see our good deeds and praise our Father in Heaven.
