In a true manifestation of the love of Christ Jesus, MAF of Sing Ang Tong Methodist Church is putting hands together to organise a two-night districtwide badminton competition. Themed "Jesus Loves You!", this event is perhaps the first of its kind to share the gift of love with some non-believer players. You may call it evangelical in nature.
This competition, to be held on July 13 & 15 at Centenary Hall of SMK Sacred Heart, is open to all the MAFs in Sibu East District. Essentially a reach-out event, it attracted a total of 10 teams to come under one roof for a common sharing purpose.
The organiser imposed no joining fees. All that each team has to fulfill is to include two non-believer players.
I went there both as a supporter and in my capacity as Chairman of MAF of Sibu East District. But due to my commitment with another meeting, much as I wished to stay on, I had to leave early.
DS Rev Wong Koi Fo was invited to share a message at the opening ceremony. In his address, he brought to the players both good news and bad news.
