It’s been slightly more than a year… can’t believe it…So many things have happened, so many things have changed. Wow.
I remember the first time I met the first girl, that sense of overwhelming compassion and that feeling of excitement because I knew that she came for a reason.
I remember the first time I went to that place; the sights, the sounds, the smell. Lol. But more importantly, I remember the first follow up there, the first time I met the second, third and fourth girl. Oh, I remember the heartbreak and the revelation that they really need God…
I remember the happiness when they came for their first service… the tearing when I saw them lifting their hands and giving their lives to Jesus. I remember the simple conversations with them saying that Sunday was the best day of their week.
I remember the light in their eyes when we celebrated their birthday for the first time. I remember her first time seeing Christmas in Orchard and her first time at Coney Island. I remember bringing her to buy spectacles and her telling me it felt like her older sister bringing her out. I remember going with her to visit her grandmother and writing a letter to put alongside hers.
I remember the countless photos and visitations. I remember the worship sessions in the chapel with random peeping going through the window. I remember nearly crying because I saw them cry. I remember standing at the gate and praying over every girl and every room.
But most of all, I remember the gratitude I felt, the wisdom I learnt to possess, the faith & fight I grew to have, and the love I was given to give away…
Circumstances may inevitably have to change. But no matter what, I know there is hope (: Every single one has a destiny and a future and a hope… that is truth.
I truly believe that every seed sown will one day bear fruit. There is no way that anyone can forget after tasting and seeing the goodness of God.
Learn, grow, move on. I’m determined not to let go of this idealism…not idealism of the world, but a godly idealism… to keep on believing that in God, nothing is ever wasted or in vain. With God, we can make a difference and we can change the world. 🙂
So touched and grateful that there is a God who loves every single person. No life goes unnoticed and forgotten. Every life matters!
