Ipoh mission 怡保的使命

We left Butterworth after breakfast, heading to Kawasan Permatang Tinggi Light Industri to purchase A1 curry paste on Her Majesty my wife's pesan (request).

However, my water logged GPS (as described by my aiya grand-daughter Olivia) led us to "holand". Instead of going to Action One factory, it led us to Nebong Tebal exit to highway, telling us to go home!

We continued towards Ipoh for an appointment with Anna, mother of Lina who passed away about 70 days (Dec 27 2009) ago.

As I mentioned earlier, meeting Lina's mother and going to Ipoh is the wonder of the Lord, a Godly arrangement.

Lina's ashes were kept in the house all the while and will be interred in the columbarium on the next day after our visit.

On Fr. Lawrence's recommendation, Lina had kept a diary recording her thoughts and feelings during her period of illness. She left words that this diary be handed over to Fr. Lawrence in order to be shared with many friends and well wishers who visited her when she was alive.

In a simple ceremony, Lina's mother handed over the diary and a visitors book to Fr. Lawrence in front of the picture and ashes of Lina. Mission accomplished.

Not informing Peter while in Ipoh was no respect for my old friend. So we met up for lunch and enjoyed the food and hospitality before heading home.













我们在早餐后,前往巴冬丁宜轻工业区,因为受太太大人的吩咐,到那儿购买A1牌咖喱酱。

但是,因为我那个湿水卫星导航器(我的哎呀乾孙女馨之说的)闹别捏,带我们去“荷兰”。本来要去工厂购买的,但它却带我们到高渊(Nebong Tebal) 的大道出口,叫我们“回家”。

我们决定直行到怡保去,因为和莉娜的妈妈月玲姐约好到她家见面。莉娜就是在70天 (去年十二月二十七日)前去世的怡保患癌症女孩。(可键入【莉娜】搜寻有关她的帖子)

我前面有说过,这次去怡保,是天主的神妙安排。

莉娜的骨灰,一直都收留在家里,但将会在第七十天后,也就是我们探访的隔天,安放在骨灰塔里。

莉娜在生时,受到大华神父的鼓励,用一本日记簿,记录了她生病时的感受及心厉路程。她明确的留言,死后将这本日记簿交给大华神父,以便能够和她的朋友及探望过她的人分享。

在一个简单的仪式中,莉娜妈妈把这本日记簿,及在医院时的访客留言簿,一起交到大华神父的手上。大功告成。

人到怡保,不通知朱兴文,就是对这位老友不敬。所以,我们大家会合之后,共享了一顿丰富的兴文盛情午餐,然后才取道回家。

大哥;

莉娜姊妹是在12月27日蒙主恩召。
所以一直到那天(星期六)的見面,總共70天。

主佑
