Christmas is fast approaching, a time of sharing, giving gifts and having parties. Family members are having more fun with other extended families for one purpose, to celebrate. For some, it is a great celebration for a big reunion. People are excited to meet friends and relatives. However, not everybody are enjoying, others felt unwanted, staying in the corners or streets without someone or a family to take care, for them it is a time of sadness. They are the less fortunate and needy. But our Great Father loves them so much! He takes care of them, loves them and use people to help them. It's a privilege on our part to be used by Him to bless these less fortunate. May we can be a blessing to the less fortunate and the needy. Let's share!!! A blessed day to all!!!

Last Saturday, 14th of Dec. was our christmas party with other friends here in Hatyai. It was an enjoyable night for all of us, though we were only few but we enjoyed a lot. A friend gave a message through doing an advent, it's quite a different way of celebrating christmas. Most of us experienced it for the first time, it's simple yet the true meaning of christmas was there. We had also a kind of exchange gift that is different from what we expected. If you're watching us you will really enjoy. That was also a different kind of exchanging gifts. It's nice to have friends who knew other kinds of gift giving or exchanging gifts. It's fun... After which, we had played a lot because my sweetie introduced different kinds of games for everyone to enjoy. We had really a lot of fun. We ended around 11 pm. I could say that all of us gave the best laugh to the fullest without any reservation. That was a great and enjoyable occasion for all of us present. Merry Christmas to all!

Doing community work is somewhat tiring but encouraging. This is what we did today. We traveled for 1hour and a half from our city. We went to a far community, gathered children and taught them how to sing songs, and speak English as well.Some of our friends came with us, there were 11 of us and we found many children near the seashore. There you could see simple people with a big heart for their family and work hard in order to survive for a day. They are the people of the sea, preparing their nets to cast and catch fish. We gathered the children, at first, many of them were shy but when we started to give something to eat, they started to come. After the singing, some of the team facilitated a couple of games for children to enjoy. The last part was so interesting for the mothers because we also prepared some clothes for all ages to take home. Seeing them taking one toy and clothes at a time make our hearts glad and there's a feeling of fulfillment inside. It's nice to see them enjoying, especially the mothers...Helping people in the village is something we always treasure and seeing them grow and learn more... These children are really needy and always longing for people to help! Blessings from above be upon them...
