PBBC Patron among the recipients of 2009 Mission Outreach Award

On October 10th 2009, a Mission Outreach Banquet was held by Philadelphia Baptist Association at The Drexelbrook (Drexel Hill, PA)at which the 2009 Mission Outreach Award was given to about 20 recipients. One of the recipients was Aunty Nu Nu Zan, one of the Patrons of Philadelphia Burmese Baptist Church and a member of First Baptist Church, Lansdale.

What an honor it is to have one of our own people receiving this award for the selfless, outstanding work done to help people who are in need, and let God’s love shine through deeds! May we be able to follow the worthy example set by Aunty Nu Nu Zan - as Christians we must not only preach but live the Gospel.

I asked God......

I asked God to take away my pain. God said, It is not for me to take away, but for you to give it up.
I asked God to make my handicapped child whole. God said, Her spirit was whole, her body was only temporary.
I asked God to grant me patience. God said, Patience is a by-product of tribulations, it isn't granted, it is earned.
I asked God to give me happiness. God said, I give you blessings, Happiness is up to you.
I asked God to spare me pain. God said, Suffering draws you apart from worldly cares and brings you closer to me.
I asked God to make my spirit grow. God said, You must grow on your own, but I will prune you to make you fruitful.
I asked for all things that I might enjoy life. God said, I will give you life so that you may enjoy all things.
I ask God to help me LOVE others, as much as he loves me. God said... Ahhhh, finally you have the idea.
