NABAWAN – Twenty members of the Apostolate of Divine Mercy, Stella Maris Tanjung Aru Parish, continued their mission of mercy at St Bede Nabawan on 4-5 Mar 2017.
The mission trip was headed by Divine Mercy Coordinator, Datin Theresa William.
The group arrived in Nabawan at about 3:30 pm, to a warm welcome by the Franciscan Sisters, CWL members, and the youth.
Nabawan is a small district with few shops, with nothing much to do and no major tourist places of interest to visit. The lack of distractions, plus the lack of water, made one appreciate life better and provided a good reflection for Lent.
Though the trip was long and tedious, it was worthwhile. The group donated rice, food, goodies and other necessities. The Rotary club of Kinabalu Sutera donated stationeries for the children. These donations delighted the receivers, especially the children.
The group gave out of mercy, but it stemmed from a yearning to share the love of Christ. The group also prayed and shared the Divine Mercy with the parishioners.
At St Bede, the sisters have opened a three-classroom kindergarten for Christian children. However, the bare classrooms need a dash of paint, more educational books, and other teaching facilities. – Teresa Alberto
