Last night I went for a wedding dinner of my fellow legionary's son at HGH Hall in Sentul, Kuala Lumpur. I was sharing a table with Francis and his wife Linda.
Whenever I see them, my heart filled with joy and gladness. They always smile and full of enthusiasm to share whatever they are doing, especially their church and BEC activities. Right now they are busy involved with the fund raising dinner which will be held at the same venue this coming Saturday. They are raising fund for the new church complex of their Jesus Caritas Church in Kepong.
It needs extra effort for anyone to take up this task, more so if you are having certain health condition. Francis is a renal failure patient for about 8 years and needs dialysis three times a week. It is a heavy burden for him, physically and financially. He bears it courageously. He lives life with faith and hope with the support of family especially his wife Linda. He has a regular job but is active in church activities too. Francis and Linda are legionaries who do regular visit to the sick and aged.
I admired his courage, faith and trust in God. He is a shining example for me in bearing life's suffering and pain.
May our Lord continue to bless him with courage and protect him and his family always.
