Pakistani Fellowship – Labour Day Celebration
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am gentle and humble in heart: and you shall find rest for your souls, for my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. (Matthew 11:28-30)
The Pakistani Fellowship came together over the recent Labour Day at St. Barnabas church to celebrate the holiday. The meeting started at 7pm and was attended by Bro JS, Bro David Adams along with 70+ Pakistanis who are currently residing in Klang. A few representatives from MMK was also present.
Bro David Adams opened with a word of prayer, and was followed with the singing of the Pakistani national anthem. Bro Robin then introduced the purpose of the meeting and they had Nouman and Adeel shared an overview of what Labour Day was all about.
A few songs were then sung by Sister Sonal and Sister Shan. The songs chosen included a song that was a prayer to Jesus which message was about the Power of God when we praise God, and also a song of communal loving which intended to portray the sharing
of love with one another among the Pakistanis.
Bro JS then shared his thoughts about loving one another, while Abrina read out Psalms 23. They also had Ali Shah sharing about how God stands for us when we face life’s problems, and when we share our love with one another. Bro Robin then finally shared about how Christ is able to help us with our burdens and problems in life.
