A couple of years ago, when 33 miners were trapped in
a Chilean mine deep under the earth’s surface, I wonder
if they felt totally lost and doomed to a slow and painful
death. Imagine how they must have been filled with joy
when they got a message from above that the rescue
team knew exactly where they were and that the process
of getting them out had already begun!

|CDM SSVP visits St Joseph’s Home|
SSVP Con 3 teens brought cheers the elderly with a performance!
Last Sunday, our teens and SSVP ministry visited the Home to spend time with the elderly. Our volunteers assisted the nurses and had a chance to experience the work carried out at such a home for the elderly. Our teens had a hands-on experience with the work done there. Our volunteers even put up a small performance for the elderly. Our teens and volunteers faced some challenges as there were some elderly who were mute and they had to communicate with cards which had alphabets. The elderly were really happy to see the teens as they usually only see adults. It was a meaningful day for the teens as they brought cheers to the elderly.
