The Star of Yahweh Covenant Community (SYCC) once again spent their monthly fellowship with the Christian students 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 worked together hand in hand to make the monthly programme run smoothly. This is one way for the SYCC to minister to other communities in our church as well as to be close with one another.

This time, we highlighted those behind the scenes of this programme. We formed two groups; the seniors and youths who each have their own tasks.

Early in the morning, the senior men were busy arranging chairs at the hall while the women were busy cooking for the students. The youth were busy preparing the music instruments and setting up the LCD for the singing, praising, games and group sharing.

This fellowship programme started more than five years ago. SYCC reaches out to 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 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, 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 and having a happy time in the community whereby we work together, sharing and supporting one another with Christ’s love, is indeed wonderful.”

Timothy James, one of the SYCC youths, was glad 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 am 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 carried out by the SYCC youths; the praising and  singing, as well as the games, building the relationships between them, and the devotional time gave them the opportunity to ask spiritual questions.
