Easter Service and Health Care by Atma Jaya (14 April 2018)
C4C family conducts another Social Care Service for the Blind Friends and while celebrating Easter on 14 April 2018. The medical team from Atma Jaya University has been faithful serving the blind friends for many years. The doctors bring their team of students who are always ready to serve with open arms.
The day opens first with the Social Care Activities where the doctors from Atma Jaya team provide free medical check-ups for all the blind friends of C4C and all of the C4C workers as well. The Atma Jaya team consists of general practitioners, dentists, health counselors, in addition to the team that gives free prescribed medications for those who need them. Each patient is called-in one at a time, and given a simple evaluation first before seeing the doctor. Free blood check is subsequently administered to ensure diagnosis, and then free medication is given according to the doctor' prescription.
While the medical check-ups are going on, the blind friends enjoy many great performances during the Easter celebration. Some friends give singing performances, some recite poems, and others give drama musical performance. The event is wrapped with an Easter Service where all the blind friends and workers gather, praising and worshipping the Lord in unison. This year's Easter takes on the topic "Overcoming Sufferings." Sufferings are not always bad, for God often times use our sufferings to teach us how to overcome them according to the Word. Sufferings also perfect our characters in Christ, as well as increasing our faith.
The event completes at about 2 pm, and all of the workers then starts the procedure to lead everyone to their transport vehicles back home. This year's event is so great that everyone feels blessed. Thanks be to God alone.
