“Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her.” Proverbs 31:28
They protect fearlessly, work tirelessly, and love unconditionally. On May 14th, a day dedicated to our beloved mothers, we gathered at Hope Mission Centre to celebrate and thank our mums for all they have done.
Few others have as powerful an impact in our lives as mothers do. We took the time to thank our spiritual mother, Pastor Aileen, for her tireless dedication to nurturing each of us in our walk with Christ. Pastor David shared an encouraging Word about the foundation of faith a godly mother establishes for her children. Whether built by physical or spiritual mothers, an unshakeable foundation of faith in Christ sets us up for success.
The children of HopeKids put on an adorable item, thanking our mothers for cooking, cleaning, and dressing us warmly in the winter, and gifted every mum in our church with a ribbon-wrapped box of tea. After the service, our mothers were treated to a sumptuous spread of pastries and tarts for morning tea.
At Sunday Nights, we tested our knowledge in a round of household trivia, each team captained by our knowledgeable mothers. We raced to find the essentials only a mother would carry in her handbag, and discovered how difficult it really is to feed vegetables to reluctant mouths.
The mothers at HMC Singapore and Malaysia joined the celebration, receiving gifts of appreciation and partaking in delicious lunches. They were well and truly spoiled by us today. After all the love and devotion they have blessed us with, our mothers deserve nothing less.
