Hope of Jubilee Celebration at Trinity Methodist Church

On the evening of 16th September, 2012 our nation celebrated the Hope of Jubilee being the 50th year of the birth of Malaysia as well as Jubilee year as defined in the Bible.  Following the 40 days pray and fast initiated by NECF, it was closed with a grant celebration at Trinity Methodist Church, Kuching. (TMC).  According to the spoke person of NECF, Bro. Eugene Yap at the same time 24 locations throughout Malaysia Church organizations celebrated this Jubilee together.

Indeed, the turn out was awesome not only in numbers ( about 2,000 people attended at TMC ) but most importantly in Spirit.  Various denominations of our Christian faith joint our hearts in One Accord to pray for our nation.  This is our land and we are all proud to be Malaysians.  A pastor present said only when we love our nation that we strive to build an equitable and righteous nation. 

The worship and pray celebration started with a speech by Bro.Eugene Yap fro NECF followed by worship singing in three languages, English, Mandarin and Bahasa Malaysia ( Malay ).  There was also blowing of shofars to compliment the worship and prayers.

As was mentioned by KMF Pastor Aaron Tan, the past year has been very encouraging because many Christians have been coming together to pray for our nation.  Regardless of race or creeds we all come together as One Body of Christ to pray for our nation and to worship our Almighty God.  Man's ways will not prevail, only God's ways will.  Only God can change our nation because He is the Creator of all things in heaven and on earth.

Praise God for a good showing by the Christians communities here in Kuching and the surroundings.  Praise God and thank God for touching the hearts of Christians throughout our nation.

To God be the Glory!
