On 31st January 2019, the Methodist Women of Trinity Petaling Jaya together with Rev Paul S Christie, Pastor Lewis Loke, Brother Tan Hock Wah (Chairman Board of Management SK Methodist PJ) and Brother Andrew Wong (Lay Leader) presented Mandarin oranges to the students and teachers of SK Methodist Petaling Jaya as part of its community program in conjunction with the Chinese New Year celebration.  We thank God for His grace to enable TMCPJ to fruitfully carry out this program since 2017.  The unity and community of the LCEC leaders made it possible through their personal donation. 

On the morning of 31st Jan, the MW ladies gathered in church at 9.00am to pack the goody bags which consists of mandarin oranges, biscuits and chocolates.  The goody bags were swiftly transferred to the school once the packing was completed and ready to be given out to the children at 11.30am.  

It was a delight to see the joy on the faces of the children upon receiving the goody bags!  Indeed it was noteworthy to hear Puan Rita, the Student Welfare Teacher reminding the children to participate in community and fellowship by choosing one of their favourite items in the good bag to eat together.  Many of the children presented a handwritten and hand drawn Chinese New Card to Rev Paul and Pastor Lewis to show their appreciation.  

What an excellent program to bridge the community and establish a relationship with the school seeking to represent and honour God in all we do as we respond to the TRAC mission of "One Church One School Community Program".  

May the favour of the Lord our God rest on us; establish the work of our hands for us, yes, establish the work of our hands. (Psalm 90:17)
