CHRISTIAN VOTERS AWARENESS

14 January 2017

19 students, 2 graduates, 5 FES staff and 4 trainers from Rise of Sarawak Efforts (R.O.S.E.) descended into FES Office to kick off the region’s first event of the year – the role we play in our community. The students came expecting a lecture style bombardment of information but instead ‘power’ were put back into their hands as they went through different activities, commonly faced at grassroots level.

What did they go home with? In some of their own words –

“.. both practical & educational”

“Saya nak mengundi, saya ada hak, apa (tugas) pemimpin, tahu shopping benda yang perlu…”

“Eye opener and want to register as voter…”

“I need to vote wisely…”

JAMBATAN ANAK MALAYSIA MUKAH

Ricky Lihan Rubin, wakil persatuan 'God is Great' (GiG) dari kampus Politeknik Mukah Sarawak (PMU) mengongsikan impak sesi Jambatan Anak Malaysia (JAM).

Apa mampu saya beribadah dengan selesa di gereja berlainan denominasi?

Salam kerajaan Allah! Syukur ke hadirat Tuhan buat penyertaan-Nya dalam kehidupan setiap peribadi . Selaku wakil G.i.G pada semester ini ,suatu sukacita buat saya untuk berkongsi pengalaman persekutuan Kristian di kampus PMU . Tanpa penyertaan Tuhan itu , pasti lebih sukar lagi buat pelajar-pelajar Kristian bersekutu di sini.

Lawatan ke Mukah Baptist Church

Visi G.i.G : Menyatupadukan pelajar-pelajar Kristian daripada mazhab-mazhab yang berbeza di bawah satu bumbung.

Sesuai dengan visi G.i.G itu sendiri, timbul dalam hati untuk melawat gereja-gereja dengan tujuan menjadi ejen kepada gereja-gereja bersatu dan beribadah tanpa memandang denominasi yang berbeza. Sedar bahawa semua itu hanya dapat tercapai bermula dengan menyatukan pelajar-pelajar di kampus melalui persekutuan yang diadakan. Yang terdiri daripada R.C., S.I.B., Methodist, S.D.A., Baptist dan gereja-gereja yang sedia ada.

Pada awalnya, ini merupakan visi secara peribadi .Namun, semasa saya berkongsi idea ini dengan rakan aktif G.i.G iaitu juga merupakan bekas pengerusi G.i.G, beliau juga berpendapat untuk membawa ajk-ajk G.i.G serta ahli G.i.G untuk terlibat sama melawat gereja-gereja yang ada di Mukah. Puji Tuhan! Visi ini disemarakkan lagi dengan dorongan daripada ahli-ahli G.i.G yang lain.

Bagaimana tercetus visi ini? Seringkali bermain di fikiran saya begini “ Bagaimana mungkin saya memimpin G.i.G untuk bersatu &  beribadah dengan mazhab-mazhab yang berbeza jika saya masih dalam zon selesa di mana saya selalu beribadah setiap Ahad?” Kata kunci di sini ialah ZON SELESA beribadah. Bagi saya, tidak akan terjadi sama sekali KESATUAN ANTARA GEREJA kalau saya  hanya selesa beribadah di mazhab yang sering saya hadiri. Walhal , ‘yang disembah’ itu peribadi yang sama. TUHAN yang sama. Hanya cara & aturacara ibadah yang berbeza pada setiap gereja. Ertinya, saya berani berkata masih ada perselisihan antara orang-orang Kristian kerana masih tidak dapat bersatu dengan mazhab yang berbeza (Baca 1 Korintus 3:1-9): Hal perselisihan.

Lawatan ke Roman Catholic Mukah

Pertanyaan saya di sini, yang mungkin anda juga sedia tahu sebelum ini, "Yang menyelamatkan jiwamu nanti, gereja atau Tuhan Yesus?” Kalau gereja yang menyelamatkan, “Cepat-cepat kol saya yer. Saya nak pergi ke sana juga." - Sindiran. Ternyata Tuhan Yesus itu sendirilah yang menyelamatkan kita.  Andai anda hari ini masih memberi alasan “saya tidak dapat pergi ke gereja itu kerana saya sudah biasa di gereja ini”. Wah! Teman-teman yang sangat saya kasihi, ingat bahawa gereja hanya tempat kita berkumpul untuk persekutuan mahupun mendorong satu sama lain tetapi tetap Tuhan Yesus yang memberi pertumbuhan kepada iman kita! (Baca ayat 1 Korintus 3:6-8) .

Akhir kata, agar mesej yang disampaikan dapat menjadi dorongan dan tindakan kepada kita untuk menjadi ejen menyatupadukan pelajar Kristian di kampus anda dan orang-orang percaya di bawah satu bumbung.

Terima kasih. Tuhan menyertai!

JAM - Jambatan Anak Malaysia Miri

2oth September 2014

JAM Miri2   JAM Miri1

Bringing the message of reconciliation and transformation to students in Miri. Against the current sentiment of the day, we are calling Christians to be agents of reconciliation and transformation. It is easy to criticize and to harp on other's weaknesses. It is much more difficult to acknowledge of our prejudices against another. This is a radical message to be bridge-builders, hence JAMBATAN!

Let each person take one small step to build up, rather than to tear down! The gospel of Jesus Christ is good news for it is a message of reconciliation.

Will you be part of J.A.M.?

 

 

JAM Mukah 2-3 March 2012

A Highway to Mukah… A call to be “Jambatan Anak Malaysia” an FES Jubilee call is a significant story to share because this year we are celebrating the 50th year since the forming of Malaysia as well. Mukah was the first destination where the Jubilee trumpet sounded loud and clear to bring our nation before God and at the same time urge His people to be an agent of racial reconciliation as well as transformation wherever we are in this land of Malaysia. Thirty plus students, mainly from Politeknik Mukah, turned-up for that half day event. We challenged them to break down the wall of prejudice and lay a brick each to build the Jambatan Anak Malaysia. One participant responded “To write it on paper all the walls of prejudice we try to break down and respond by laying a brick at a time to build the J.A.M is so easy, but in reality, do we really want to take the first step forward to be a J.A.M builder?”

Ops R.I.U.T. - Transforming Our People MBKS Indoor Stadium - Pending, Kuching  (17 September 2011)

185 students from 14 campuses turned up to respond to the call to be T.O.P agents in their society. We challenged them to “Transform Our People” throughout the whole day. In the morning, we called them to M.A.D. (Mission At Doorstep) and C.O.N. (Change Our Neighborhood). After lunch, we called them to S.A.lah (Social Awareness Lah!) and J.A.M. (Jambatan Anak Malaysia). Different activities challenged them to different issues that they could easily identify with in their personal daily lives. But now the focus is much broader, we want to challenge them to respond to the many issues surrounding their society as well as in the nation. Praise the Lord, at the end of the programme, they were challenged to become the agents of transformation in their society, campus, CF, community and nation. This event was also a reminder to them of their role as “Salt and Light” in this world!

 

Gala Undangan Nabi (GUN) 16 February 2011

On 16th February 2011, 51 Christian student leaders from 14 campuses around Kuching came together to share their stories, struggles in their CF, and bring words of encouragement to each other. GUN was the first event organized by FES Sarawak to call all our leaders to be prophets in their campuses. It was also an avenue for those who joined National Conference 2010 to share their experiences and challenges after NC with those who couldn’t be there. Here’s what some students at GUN had to say:

“I have never seen consumerism from a Christian perspective before.” “I really want to have a CF in my college.” “From now onwards I’ll try to build a real relationship with my Majority friend.” “My heart is broken when I see my friends wasting their lives out there.”
