Trinitarians Spread Holiday Cheer
The most wonderful thing that can even happen to someone is that when he gives without expecting something in return. This in itself is a precious act of self-fulfillment - it's something which something you get no pay but the privilege of doing it.
It was just an ordinary day to some people but for the Supreme Trinitarian Council (STC) of Trinity Christian School it was a special day for them. As early as 5:30 in the morning of December 21, 2012, they were already in school all set to spread the Christmas cheers through reaching out to the sacadas in the sugarcane field.
It was such a wonderful experience of giving out Christmas packages which consisted of rice, canned goods, sugar, milk, coffee and other basic household stuff to the unsuspecting sacadas around the city. The STC officers campaigned for rice donations from the student body and together with their individual contributions and some benefactors of the project they were able to bless 200 sacadas and their families.
"I feel so blessed to have shared my blessings to others especially when the ones receiving beams with joy. I feel that I just did a very remarkable thing in my life," one STC officer said.
"I feel like I'm in seventh heaven when the recipient of the packagesmiles at me and says thank you. I feel the sincerity. I know that when they say that magic word they mean it so much. I realize that it is in giving that we also receive."
Indeed there is always joy in giving.
