A Christmas Carol with C99

Image
Joy to the world the Lord had come. Let earth receive her king ! As the year draws to a close and we rejoice for the birth of our Lord savior Jesus Christ, the participants from C99 got together to give thanks for the great blessings of friendships that we received following our CHOICE weekend. And what better way to do it than to spread that joy by singing carols in some of our fellow C99 houses. We were also lucky enough to be joined by two participants from C100 and a special guest from Singapore.

First on our list was the beautiful home of Ivy Pat. We were warmly greeted by Ivy's mum who was quick to offer us some of her homemade cookies (some of which Ivy claimed to have made herself).

As finished singing our hearts out and were about to take leave, we were presented by a very special surprise. Ivy donned her pretty white gloves, turned on the music and captivated us with a near flawless pantomime. It was presented as a gesture of thanks for all her comrades in C99 which had u…

An open letter to Jesus - Happy birthday!

Dear Jesus,

Happy birthday!

Thank you for coming down to be present among us. Your birth on earth gives us hope. We are a fallen race but today your light has come into this world and into our hearts and thus we are saved. In serving the CHOICE programme, it is our human nature that caused us to fail you and our fellow brothers and sisters. Help us, the CHOICE team to be born again in your grace that we may forgive those who have hurt us. Renew our zeal to serve you. Keep us humble, obedient and kind that we can always follow in your footsteps.  Stir our hearts to love all mankind and to always love you.

Sincerely,
All members of CHOICE KL



A blessed Christmas to all!!

Gospel Alive #3 - The joy of the Lord is my strength

Image
John said, 'I am, as Isaiah prophesied: A voice of one that cries in the desert: Prepare a way for the Lord. Make his paths straight!' - Gospel, John 1:23



Many people today search for pleasures in life to make them happy, but find that it does not bring them joy. Some do not even know why they are unhappy or disconnected. When God is not at the centre, we lose our purpose in life. We lose this Joy!

For St John the baptist, his conviction to prepare the way derives from God: "The Joy of the Lord is my strength"

Joy is a commitment. In our family/marriage/relationship/ministry, to have joy in each other requires effort on our part to communicate with each other.

If our houses are like war-zones breeding with strive and conflict, how can we have joy. Then we come to church, and it is difficult to maintain this joyful facade even if we try.


We need to forgive one another at home, to be committed and persistent in communicating and talking to one another.  We need to put …

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
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.







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.
