Christina (not her real name) is a 17 year old refugee who came with her parents and siblings to Malaysia to flee the persecution of her people back in her homeland. She was only 10 years old then and has lived the last 7 years of her life as a refugee. Yet, she has hope in Christ and is thankful in every circumstance.
The news announced on June the 8th, 2018 was grim for the second largest group of refugees by ethnicity in Malaysia registered with UNHCR numbering almost 25,000. They, the Chin people from Myanmar were faced with an uncertain future when UNHCR will no longer provide any protection to them as refugees by the end of December 2019.
Simon joined FGA KL as a full-time staff in 2002. Then, he served in a drug rehab ministry known as Christian Care Centre (CCC). Today, he is serving in an urban food sharing ministry known as Sahabat Pudu. The work excites him as he meets needy people from all walks of life with amazing stories to tell even as they tuck into a hot plate of rice and chicken amidst the cacophony of street dwellers.
Well, Simon himself has his own story to share.
