Center for Christ facilitated a social care event for the Blind Friends on 20 May 2017 which took place at the Hall in GPIB Sangkakala building. This special event was fully supported by our friends at GBI HOB, as well as the doctors from Atma Jaya with their students
An event like this can only be made possible when Bodies of Christ work together in unison. For this particular event, a total of more than 50 workers got together to plan and execute for the glory of Christ.
We opened the event with morning prayers, lead by Ps Stefen, Rev. Hendrady, Brother Bradley, and Mr. Kustopa. We focused the prayers in thanksgiving, knowing that only by God's grace and favor an event like this can take place.
The team from Atma Jaya started the event by giving presentation about health issues management for all the Blind Friends that were present. There were many significant information being shared, and the audience responded with many questions to further understand the health topic being addressed. Right after the presentation, the doctors and their team which included the general practitioners, ophthalmologists, and dentists invited the Blind Friends for free medical services. Every service and medicine given was free of charge, and all the glory for our LORD Jesus Christ. This free medical service was also provided to the open public, especially for the neighbors living near by the location.
Center for Christ also gave more excitement for the event by conducting a Christian Karaoke Singing Competition among the Blinds. Acting as the coordinator was Brother Ivan, and sitting as the juries were Mr. Tomo, Ms. Yani, and Mr. Budi Sugihdharma. The juries' selected winners were Brother Bradley, Brother Niko, and Brother Stanley as first, second, and third place winners, respectively.
The Rafa Massage team from Center for Christ also took an opportunity by opening a reflexology massage booth. Lead by Brother Aldo, the Rafa Massage Team served the attendees professionally.
Throughout the whole event, the team from GBI HOB gave their full support, from the preparation in the early days until the closing of the event. Everyone worked wholeheartedly, and they even prepared some gifts for each Blind Friend who participated in this occasion. May the LORD bless all of those involved in this glorious day a hundredfold..
