Stop Complaining and Start Appreciating....

21.11.2009 Saturday (good day for wedding)
2day Our church youth group combined with the children group to pay a visit to the Likas Cheshire Home. The Cheshire Home is a place for those who are either mentally disable such as Down's Syndrome or physically disabled.

When we reach there, (smelt some weird unpleasant odour), our church children were a bit terrified, maybe it's because seeing these abnormal looking people for the first time. The Instructor gave us some briefing about the history of the home, and took us to the surroundings....

We started off with praise and worship, sang some songs with them.....some of them were really enjoying it.....the pictures are below...

Continued by dancing performance.....Melody, Cindy, Diana and Foo yen yen.....caterpillar dance...


Then we had some hand craft making activites with them....we taught them to draw and making love shapes......


I taught this lady name Liew Bitt jing, she's 40 years old, she's been staying her since she was 14, she suffers a physical disoder disease....felt quite pity for her...i wanted to enquire more but i'm scared that I might hurt her feelings....Questions like how did she came here, why her parents left her her....etc....she was very happy when i drew her cartoon face on the love shaped manilla card...


Then I had my special lunch, i called it special because we were having lunch with this people...
And we had to feed them, their food needed to be chopped into tiny pieces or else they'll vomit the whole thing out....I was in charge of the aunty i mentioned above, but she insisted by doing it herself....

12.15, after some group photo session, we wave goodbye and headed back to church....

Healing Prayer

The trip was indeed fulfilling as it gave us a valueble experience interacting with these people, taught us to empathize and simpathize the unlucky one....I think that we should be grateful that God gave us a complete body and a normal life....we didn't suffer from any diseases, our parents so love us, unlike them, they were left behind unwanted....we should really appreciate more than complaining....don't you agree???
