The big change of my life
The group so called Father Jordan Youth (FJY) was founded. It was very nice opportunity for me in order to communicate with the people whom I do not know yet. In the first day of FYJ, I could do nothing because it was new thing, new way,… for me to take on it. Yes, with the time passed by, slowly I have caught up which I have to wish before. When I have found it out, whoa! It’s really beautiful ever I can imagine in my life (I can talk in personally). That’s why I said that it was really a big change for me.
And of course, I am not hesitating to share with you something about FJY. In the first day, it was really a hard time to communicate with the group. They were around 13, 14, and 15 years old. And as you know that the age of stubbornness, they could listen something from you and then “wala” remain in their mind later on. I had a lot experiences with the group whenever we have something to do together. And from that I can find them out. Specially, when the time for the song practice, I was really get mad with the group, even I have shouted them. They just listened to my words at that moment and then they repeated the same as before. Not because of this, I will leave the group. But I still remain in the group. Until one day, I have found them really good, even sometimes … as I have said. They have a lot of things for me to learn, not only to guide them a long the way. They are really a good lesson for me to gain knowledge of communication, to relate with other people,…
And now, the year has passed by, we have a good relationship among the group, to learn from each other the good things, or even the bad things. Nevertheless, we have to look further more in the future to develop ourselves in all kinds.
And with the last words of my heart, thank you for all the things which you have done for me during the past year, if only me, I can do nothing but with you and with the help of God, I can do something. And I also say sorry to the people who I got mad and shouted, ok na! And with the opening of the new page of FJY, I wish all of you always keep the fire, the light, the salt which you have kept during the past year, so that we can proclaim the Gospel of God through our examples, through our lives and follow the footstep of Father Jordan to proclaim the Gospel of love to all the people.
