SANDAKAN – On Sunday, 21 Sep 2014, 50 Christian students who have just enrolled into University Malaysia Sabah (UMS), Sandakan gathered for a welcoming event ~ ‘welcoming the juniors to the campus’ organised by the seniors.
Apart from extending our arms to welcome them, the program is also an assurance that they are not alone in the campus. They will have “brothers and sisters In Christ” (BASIC) to journey with them throughout their campus life in Sandakan.
The program started with a praise and worship session led by Christopher Aban and group members, followed by games conducted by Anna Teresa, the Diocesan Youth Coordinator. The new president, Emanuel from Bintulu, Sarawak introduced BASIC, its structure, aims and objectives. He introduced the new committee members of BASIC and he also presented some slides on the activities carried out for the year 2014.
Before the program ended, Rem, also a student from Sarawak, expressed his hope that members will have the zeal to spur one another on, to commit to turn up for all other gatherings and activities. He urged the students to always stay united. He then led the Closing Prayer. It was a night filled with hope, love and joy. – DOSPO, DS
