Celebrating Christmas with Borneo Natives

Celebrating the birth of Christ with Sarawak Natives at Rumah Dian



I wrote previously of the purpose of celebrating the birth of our Saviour Jesus Christ in everyday life with everyone. I had the privilege to celebrate with Borneo Natives in Sarawak together with my local church as one of the programs organized to foster community relationship and building themed 'Spread the Joy'. A week ealier it was Christmas procession that displayed unity and oneness in Christ Jesus.

Matthew 28:19-20 says Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

It was a wonderful experience for most of us, the two days, one night with the natives at Rumah Dian (longhouse) shows us the simple lifestyle and easy going day to day life of these natives. we were given the opportunity of sharing Christ and by the grace of God, souls were saved. All glory to God Almighty.
