THIS is the life!


From August 29-30, 2009, Singles for Christ members from all over Brunei Darussalam gathered together at the Church of Our Lady of the Assumption in Bandar Seri Begawan to again bear witness to Christ’s undying love for His people and His ceaseless invitation to be a part of our lives. Spirits were high and excitement was everywhere. It was official – God’s love was in the air!


Allow me to share something that I truly believe is the legacy that Couples for Christ Brunei has lived and will continue to pass on for generations to come – in Christ, WE ARE ONE. The support of the entire Couples for Christ Brunei Community at the conference was nothing but crystal-clear. The titos and titas from the CFC Brunei National Council surrounded every corner of the venue, always making sure that things ran smoothly. In the registration area, you could see the Handmaids of the Lord distributing IDs and jotting down attendances. By the food stations, the CFC titas eagerly handed out breakfast/lunch/dinner packs. Cleanliness of the venue was maintained by the Servants of the Lord. The CFC kuyas and titos who comprised the music ministry were first-rate. The Handmaids kept constant watch as prayer warriors in the Blessed Sacrament throughout the conference. Our very own parish priest Rev. Fr. Arin Sugit gave one of the talks, and our dearest Bishop Cornelius Sim leaded us in meditative prayer and the Benediction. Great? Not quite. Truly AWESOME!  


Even SFC Full-Time Worker Kate Deipairine and SFC Regional Head Taffy Ledesma will testify to that. We were SO blessed to have them lead us in the conference. The sharing of their lives and talents through each talk in every session throughout the conference was nothing short of a complete manifestation that Christ is truly working in our lives each and every day, whether we know it or not. They were in-person affirmations that God has planned every step of our lives and as SFCs, we are privileged to enjoy it! Though we encounter unexpected and seemingly-unending sacrifices along the way, God will bring the very best out of all that we have gone through simply because we went through it with Him!  


Through this conference, one of the most important lessons we learnt as Singles for Christ members was that even if we go through trial after trial and suffering after suffering, as long as we continue to let Christ rule over lives, and receive him especially through the Holy Eucharist, we can be assured that we will move forward in the right direction, with the right attitude, and with sufficient love.


God is enough? Not quite.




May He be praised. J
