My Homies didn’t back out

In Faith, JG Campus, JG YWA, Stories

they chose to help, even at their busiest!


I’m from CN46. We started our Homes earlier this year with a group of students between the ages of 18 and 22, and three young working adults. We’re a young bunch, literally!

A few weeks ago, our church had a Combined Homes for the Mandarin Community to celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival. That same morning, my Homes was scheduled to teach kids in our community. It was also the exam season.

I was worried they wouldn’t be able to make it and that manpower would be an issue.

While two other leaders and I were already preparing to handle everything ourselves, I prayed that our Homies would be able to attend both events and help out.

It was one week before the community service and Combined Homes when we told our Homies about the events.

Their response was lukewarm.

Judging by their reactions at that time, I had the impression that most of them would not be there to help. They had exams anyways.

After Homes however, everyone started texting to say that they were going. I was really proud of them!

They were busy working, preparing for exams, and had packed, busy schedules… one of them had even gone for an operation just a few days before! Still, they chose to help; to honour God.

That day, I felt deeply that CN46 gave me a sense of ‘home’.

 

After the Combined Homes ended, some even stayed to help with the cleaning and packing.

Through these events, I can see how my Homies truly honoured God. Such faith at such a young age! Their diligence and willingness to serve were great testaments for me to work even harder.

I’m happy that in a big church family, there’s a small family that connects us – we learn from each other, take care of one another, and grow together while experiencing all these precious memories.

CN46, I love all of you!

CN46是我的家庭小组。我们在今年年头时才开创,在小组里只有三个年轻的上班族,其他都是1822岁之间的大学生。

 还记得在几个星期前,教会的华语社群决定要办一个联合家庭小组来庆祝中秋节。就在同一天的早上,也刚好会是我们小组被安排到社区服务去帮那里的儿童们补习。同一个星期六里需要忙两个重要的事项,却又刚好是大学生考试的期间,当时的我也蛮担心会人手不足,担心家庭小组的大学生们都会因为考试的忙碌而不帮忙。所以心里也做好了跟其他两个领袖一手包办的心理准备。但同时我也向神祷告,希望神能让小组的成员们能够出席和帮忙。

 在社区服务和联合家庭小组的前一个星期,我们在小组告诉大家关于社区服务和联合家庭小组的事后,大家也没什么反应,当时我心想应该不会有很多人会来帮忙吧,因为感觉大家没有很兴奋。但感谢神!小组后,大家开始在whatsapp的群里回应他们会出席!我真的为每一个在家庭小组里的成员感到骄傲,因为有人工作忙碌,有人是在考试期间,有人是有很紧凑的日程,甚至有人是刚动完手术几天后,但他们都尊荣神的来帮忙,来帮助彼此。那一天,我真的深深的感受到我们CN46真的有家的感觉。不仅如此,联合家庭小组结束后,有些人还留下来帮忙打扫收拾。

 在这次的社区服务和联合聚会中,然后看到我的家庭小组的成员,是如此的尊荣神。虽然他们年纪小,但他们的信心是大的,我看到他们的努力还有他们乐意帮忙的心,让我不断的提醒自己,要更加的努力。我祷告他们的信心能够越来越大,更加的依靠神。很开心在教会这个大家庭里,还有一个小家庭,让我们更加的彼此认识,彼此学习,彼此体谅,彼此照顾,然后再一起成长,这些都是很珍贵的回忆。CN46我爱你们每一个!🙂
