In the summer of 2009, someone called Paul Yeung, Bonny Chan and Roque Ip came to Vancouver and did a road show to explain a ministry called Fountain of Love and Life. I supported their great idea to promote God’s love through the media of TV, Radio, website, music, etc in the secular world of today.
My husband joined as a volunteer at once and I haven’t until a year later. I heard two words in my prayers: “”Say YES!”" These two words kept coming back until I signed up and became one of them.
Under the spiritual and patient guidance from Paul Yeung and other supportive FLL volunteers, I helped to organize one Gala and two evangelization events (EV) for FLL in Vancouver. Seeds were sowed to the non-believers and home comers. We were chased to produce the next EV once it was finished. God blessed the volunteers and the attendants. His mercy warmed our hearts!
The whole time, everyone appreciated my endless giving, but when I looked back, God surprised me. I received more than I contributed. I learnt to stop; I learnt to listen quietly; I learnt to speak slower; I learnt to respect; I learnt to wait; I learnt to accept differences in opinion. This is a good test for me to aware, accept, truly understand and practise on these daily life virtues to love.
I would not make these shifts without participating in volunteering in FLL. From the bottom of my heart, I thank Paul Yeung and his team.
May FLL flourish by bringing changes in people’s lives. May God grant abundant graces and blessing to our honest, humble and genuine leader, Paul Yeung, so he can continue to lead FLL team as a good shepherd. May the Holy Spirit strengthen all FLL volunteers with courage, faith, hope, wisdom and love to face and receive every trial joyfully because truth triumph evils at the end! Alleluia!
Lastly I like to share with you the scripture from The Letter of James Chapter 1, verses 2 to 4.
Perseverance in Trial: Consider it all joy, my brothers, when you encounter various trials, for you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. And let perseverance be perfect, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
