Helping hands in trying times

A new member has recently joined the ranks of illegal activities in Singapore. Alongside the cruder forms of exhibitionism (characteristic of HDB stairwells), the act of exposing one’s unmasked face in public now lands a hefty fine. This increased demand for masks prompted the hands of Zion Church’s Missions and Outreach Committee, whose members promptly launched a Community Care initiative to sponsor and distribute disposable masks to the surrounding neighborhoods.

From the months of January through October 2021, the residents of Sembawang, Canberra, and Admiralty found flyers in their mailboxes advertising Zion Church’s efforts. The online sign-up forms enjoyed an overwhelming response, and soon more than eight thousand masks were delivered across multiple locations.

Alongside the distribution of masks, Zion Church also lent a helping hand to several neighboring residents who needed to borrow renovation equipment. We give thanks to God for empowering our church to incarnate the generosity of our Lord Jesus Christ in these trying times. A big thank you also goes to our Missions and Outreach Committee, whose hands and feet traveled far and wide to meet the needs of others.

Acts 2:44-47 – ‘And all who believed were together and had all things in common. And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.’
