ACT OF KINDNESS: The Joy of Giving!
How are you? I'd like to share some of my activities this week.
I went to my province Boljoon to have #ActOfKindess.
I have been giving gifts to my place since before but I was not able to share them here.
There is always joy in giving which motivates me to continue doing #ActOfKindess.
We give because we have been blessed.
This is our community picture. I hope it will motivate you to do the same. There are a lot of people who need some support.
All of them present in their abandoned chapel have received 5 kilos of rice.
We had our sharing of stories of life!
This is eating Avon. She said, "Problems and suffering are always part of our existence here in this world. But the very important is to strive to find the meaning in our life."
This is Lola Karing. She lived alone. Her husband passed away 8 years ago. And her only son was killed by the polismen. It was an act of injustice killing.
She said, "All my loved ones had passed away. But it seems this time I am not alone being with you. I am happy to receive this gift. Hopefully more blessings to come."
This is sister Lita. Who is very active in every activity we have. She is the one who gives a list of names who will receive gifts.
She said, "I am so happy that I am here. We can share our stories of life. I am always inspired by your story. I am happy that we are here to receive a gift. Thus, whatever we have in life, we will share one another. For it is in giving that we receive more."

She said, "I am already old. I am going to share with you the secret, how to get old. Sleep well, don't smoke. Exercise. Don't be stressed. Choose to live happily. Enjoy life in everything you do. Problems are always there. And the solution is also there. There would be no problem without a solution. Keep fighting in life."
