Participating in MCCSD’3 makes me realize that my life is blessed beyond measure. I get the chance to meet and interact with people from different ages, different walks of life and of various races. I have learned a lot of things throughout the event, such as social skill, communication skill, how to work in group, and I also learned how to identify the symptoms of anxiety, depression, and suicidal thoughts as these are the problems that most campus students are facing. Next, I was sent to Kampung Gentisan, Karambunai for my mission work which was based on the element of humanity and environment. There, we help one of the family to clean their house and to do gardening. As I reflect upon my mission work, I realize how fortunate I am to have such a stable life, especially in terms of financial. Through my mission work, I believe that our presence gives the family hope to live and our presence can also make them feel the presence and love of Christ. This experience is very much related to the speech given by Pope Francis, which is “We are the now of God”. It awakens me that God is using us to be His instrument to reach out to people and to spread His love to the people out there. – Azellecyrstal Jok (IPG Batu Lintang)

The most unforgettable moments are the Love we have for each other throughout the event. Everyone is so warm and friendly also open to know new friends. Accepting the differences. Everyone bonds with the Love that Jesus teach us. I could not possibly forget the workshops especially on the “Faith, Vocation and Calling” talk. It made me ponder a lot about where God will put me in the future. Have he ever called me but I was so into the worldly life? That made me reflect a lot. My mission after participating this MCCSD3 is to spread more love to everyone so that they’d be able to spread it to those who are lost in finding God. More events like this should be held in campuses as we students are constantly searching for the purpose of life. – Rapella Ron (UNIMAS)

Pengalaman yang tidak terlupakan dalam MCCSD3 ini adalah, apabila mission work yang berlangsung di Stairway to Hope, Inanam. Saya berasa sangat bersyukur kerana dapat melanjutkan pelajaran saya manakala kanak-kanak di sana tidak dapat meneruskan pelajaran atas sebab-sebab yang tertentu. Puji Tuhan kepada sukarelawan yang telah menubuhkan Stairway to Hope demi mengajar kanak-kanak yang tidak dapat menghadiri sekolah biasa seperti kita semua, mereka sanggup mengorbankan masa dan tenaga mereka untuk mengajar kanak-kanak tersebut. Saya juga merasakan kehadiran Tuhan Yesus beserta dengan kanak-kanak, senyuman yang mereka berikan kepada kami sangat mangalu-alukan dan saya berasa sangat tersentuh sebab walaupun mereka tahu bahawa mereka mempunyai banyak masalah tetapi mereka tetap memilih untuk memberi kami senyuman manis. Saya berharap lebih banyak lagi aktiviti yang bole saya lakukan di kampus untuk mengeratkan hubungan antara rakan-rakan yang seiman dalam Kristus melalui aktiviti-aktiviti kerohanian – Wayne Atrthur John (Institute Kemahiran Mara Kuching)

Satu pengalaman terbaik yang pernah saya rasai dan Puji Tuhan untuk itu! Setiap intipati yang disampaikan adalah mendalam dan menyentuh secara menyeluruh banyak membantu & memberi inspirasi kepada kami pelajar-pelajar kampus. Selain itu, saya juga bersyukur kerana mendapat keluarga angkat yang sungguh baik yang melayan kami seperti anak mereka sendiri. Saya berharap agar aktiviti seperti ini dapat dianjurkan di Kuching! – Denny Ronny (ILKKM Kuching)

A week before the Malaysian Catholic Campus Student Days, the delegates of Kuching had attended the recollection at St Peter Missionary College, Kuching for spiritual preparation before attending MCCSD 3 and at the same time to create a bonding & team spirit among the delegates and youth ministers.

Bunan-Tebedu: A group of student from University Teknologi Malaysia (UTM Johor) under catholic student society G.I.F.T. has organised a mission trip to parish Bunan-Tebedu starting 3rd August to 12 August 2018. The mission team consists of five campus students from UTM Johor and 1 student from Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris (UPSI). Together in this mission trip is pastoral worker from Youth Commission office of Kuching as spiritual guardian for all the team members. They activities for the mission trip was guided and arranged by Father Galvin Ngumbang, from Commission for Mission and Human Development Kuching.

Upon arrived at Leopold Memorial Centre (LMC), the team were given a warm welcome by the Parish Youth Ministers (PYM) and also Father Galvin. For the first 4 days, the team was assigned to stay at Leopold Memorial Centre (LMC) to prepare their objective and planned for the mission trip in kampung. While in Leopold Memorial Centre, the team was given opportunities to follow parish priest to different kampongs to celebrated mass with the orang kampongs. We met another 2 parish priests, Father Berksman and Father Selvan; Claretian priests from India who are very welcoming with our presence. Each church has its own beauty and uniqueness and being able to experience the presence of God is just magnificent.

As a part of the missions, the team also helped up to clean the Leopold Memorial Centre and St Martha Convent. Each day, their programs were also included morning reflection and bible sharing.

The 5th day, the mission continued to Kampung Saan. During the mission in Kampung Saan, we are divided into two host Famlies which is Mr Mathew Asan and also Mr Jelery. The mission is to journey with families on their daily activities. It is a pleasure to have Fr. Larry Tan, chaplain of Kuching Kampus Ministry to celebrated Holy Hour for us on that afternoon.

As we journey with our host families, we learned many meaningful lessons from them, going to orchard and clear the land for paddy plantation is one of the interesting skills that we learned our new families. Through the course of many conversations, we learned about struggles finding work and live in a state where modern technology is beyond reach. We all worked together which was something we were not expecting, and their gratitude toward our presence was truly humbling. We grew to understand the struggles faced by the people from their perspective.

On the final night, we also having our silent moment through Holy Hour celebrate by Fr Benard which came far from St Stephen Bau Parish. After this holy hour, we were having our fellowship dinner together with Fr. Selvan, Fr. Benard and PYM St Jude.

Overall, this mission trip has been impactful in ways that cannot be explained. We were challenged to learn by living and were left with a renewed sense of passion, peace, and joy for life.

Testimony from team:

This mission trip not only made my faith stronger, but also made me believed that love truly conquer all. The joy and love of Jesus are spread through people around us. Coming out from comfort zone make me realize all my fears are frictional and I don’t need technologies to entertain me. I hope the youth can open their heart to serve in Jesus, its look difficult but nothing is impossible to a willing hearts. –  Veronica Shantia (UTM, Johor)

Pengalaman berharga semasa berada di kampung membuka mata saya bertapa susahnya untuk mencari rezeki, berhempas pulas mengunakan tenaga fizikal  untuk mendapatkan wang untuk menyara hidup. Di sini saya sedar bertapa pentingnya hidup bermasyarakat, saling bertegur sapa serta mengurangkan pengunaan gadget dalam kehidupan seharian. Bersyurkur atas pengalaman yang saya dapat dari mission trip ini. – Jessica Henisi (UTM, Johor)

Pengalaman saya yang paling berharga sepanjang mengikuti mission trip ini ialah semasa mengikuti paderi ke kampung-kampung untuk merayakan missa kudus. Saya sangat teruja melihat pemandangan kampung yang begitu menenangkan serta gereja yang cantik di mana saya berpeluang untuk berfikir dan membuat refleksi tentang cara hidup bersederhana. Harap saya kepada belia yang lain dapat keluar dari zona selesa dan merasakan kehidupan orang lain serta belajar melayani sesama. – Silvia Gordan (UPSI, Perak)

The best experience I had through this mission trip is meeting the people of Bunan as well as experienced their daily lives. Their simple life and dedication to God, and also the beauty of nature had inspired me to look at the big picture in life; to appreciate the friends and family around us, as well as to be sincere and to take pride in any jobs that we do. I hope more people would be able to join a mission trip, so that we could gain new perspectives from the eyes of others. Going on this mission trip also led me to experience and witness God’s love in person. Slyvia Ipoh (UTM, Johor)

Here are some of the amazing experiences shared by Kuching delegates:

“I thank God and everyone else involved for this opportunity to participate in MCCSD2. I went without much expectations, but it has been a fruitful experience. After struggling to have a relationship with God for many years, this experience has drawn me into a deeper relationship with God.”- Audrey Olivia Chen, UNIMAS

“It was a beautiful journey as I’m able to engage with the youths from different dioceses, being able to feel the fondness during the service of the elderly in the Little Sisters of the Poor, experienced the beauty of our Catholic church through the sacredness of mass and adoration vigil. Everything was wonderfully orchestrated.” – Vivi Gloria Lucas, UNIMAS

“I was amazed by how God’s love took a positive effect throughout His people gathered from different states in Malaysia. God called me out of my comfort zone to experience His missions as how all the saints have done them during their times here on earth. Therefore, I’m inspired to go out and share God’s love to everyone with Mother Mary interceding for me in my every step.” – Darren Richmond, KSKB

“I’ve the opportunity to know more about Catholic faith. MCCSD2 had made a huge impact in me and opened my heart to feel His presence and my eyes to see His good will. It’s just like the story of the Prodigal Son, which reflect me who have been lost for more than 10 years.” – Dougall, KSKB

“The thing that I remembered the most was our mission work.  I am touched by the volunteers that came all the way from Sabah who helped the sick & elderly. I am waiting for my mission from God, what He has planned for me, and how I respond to His calling.” – Cornelia Liew, IPGBL

“I remember the feeling of being lifted up and overwhelmed with God’s presence during Vigil Mass at St. Francis Xavier church. The only thing I could do was just sit there and cry. In that moment, I was assured by him. “I am with you, now and forever”, he said. I know that day since, God has found me and I desire more.” –  Jasmine Lim, UNIMAS

“The homilies given throughout the masses are eye-opening to all as it would give us some insights of our duty as children of God and to discern more on our calling as His children. The outreach programme we had was awe-inspiring about life and the stories I heard from the family we visited at The House of Hope is encouraging towards life.” – Brian Chin, Executive College

Saya menyedari betapa indahnya kasih Tuhan kepada saya dan betapa tenang serta sukacitanya kehidupan jika saya merapatkan hubungan dengan Tuhan. Melalui aktiviti yang telah dijalankan, ia mengajar sebuah erti kehidupan dimana saya perlu berkongsi kasih sayang dengan orang yang lebih memerlukan dan kasih sayang terhadap rakan-rakan baru mahupun lama.” – Heleny Bong, KSKB

“The presence of the Holy Spirit that whenever I looked at the Eucharist I could feel peace in my heart especially during the procession with the Blessed Sacrament from Our Lady of Sorrows Church to St Francis Xavier Church. It was like walking with Jesus.” – Magdalene Hilda, KSKB

“I had spent so much time with my friends from Kuching Archdiocese and I can say that our bond is stronger than before. Apart from that, the foster parents were very nice to us and the parishioners were friendly” – Rick Falco, UNIMAS

“The Lord has opened my eyes to the reality that these people need a saviour, not because they live in filth and dress in rags, but because they are sinful beings just like you and me. This mission trip was so much more than I expected.” – Teresa Abie, UITM

“It was a truly purifying and refreshing touch of Holy Spirit in me, as life becoming a student isn’t an easy task where temptation and procrastination became our no.1 challenges. I hope this wonderful idea of gathering campus students from all over 9 dioceses in Malaysia can be maintained as it will be a great platform for our current and future student to see God in the students’ life.” – Ericson Desik, Swinburne University

“I’ve a lot of questions about my faith. Through these experiences, I’ve learnt how to respond if somebody questions me being a Catholic. I feel that the youth nowadays need to know and understand Catholic even better as a way to strengthen our faith wherever we are.” Elisabet Min, Swinburne University

“God has challenged me to be me more thoughtful reflect on where I stand in my journey of faith through this big programme.” –  Marsheill Mawai Puso, Segi College Sarawak
