CEKL99 M.A.D Project 2017

 It is our vocation to set people’s hearts ablaze, to do what the Son of God did, who came to light a fire on earth in order to set it ablaze with His love. - Frédéric Ozanam

 

Rachel from C99 really got the kids going with some super fun games

On November 26  we set out together once again to share the mad love of Jesus Christ. This M.A.D project was initiated by the batch of C99 in collaboration with the Bethel Community Centre in PJ. Together we had the opportunity to spend some quality time with the kids at Rumah Ozanam and also contribute some daily essentials.

 Funds and supplies were already collected beforehand and were promptly loaded up into the van to be delivered.

 The initial group photo taken proved to be the most awkward group photo ever produced in recent Choice history.

 
A quick emergency tutorial by Joseph on the basics of safe and effective group photo taking methodologies.

 
The result was certainly a much better overall pic. Well, if you excuse the ice-cream bike of course.



Finally ! We get to see the beautiful kids at the Rumah.

  
We started things out with a simple prayer by one of the leaders from Bethel followed by a short inspirational talk by Fr.Edwin. Pizza was served for lunch followed by some fun time, playing games and interacting with the children.

Our lovely brothers and sisters from the Bethel Community Centre. We love you guys!
Kishya's valiant attempt to kidnap recruit two of the kids to be made her personal minions had Rachel furiously scratching her head in disbelief.
Fr.Edwin was an instant hit among the kids
Kids were all smiles that day. So were we !!

We would like to thank everyone who came together to support our cause both by your humble presence and financial contributions. We would also like to extend our sincere gratitude to everyone from the Bethel Community Centre who assisted us very much with this project. We look forward to maintain our close ties and possibly collaborate together once again in the near future.

Also a very big thank you to the management of Rumah Ozanam and the wonderful children that make up this blessed home. We look forward to continue to visit and support you and your family for many more occasions to come. May God bless you all.

We also offer up praise and thanks to our Lord for allowing us to carry out our activities both safely and smoothly and we look forward for his guidance and blessings for more M.A.D projects to come.

Peace of heart – without it, no good can make us happy. With it, every trial, even the approach of death, can be borne. - Frédéric Ozanam
