Dinner to raise funds for pastors’ kids and widows

THE Assemblies of God (AG) of Malaysia is now one step closer to its goal of raising RM1mil for its existing AG EduCare Fund and establishment of an AG WidowCare Fund.

A fundraiser dinner held at the Civic Hall in Petaling Jaya on Monday was successful in raising about RM70,000 from the 70 tables sold.

“This is a real encouragement for the children and widows of pastors in Malaysia.

“It gives hope to the children, who now not only can look to God, but also to AG EduCare Fund, to further their tertiary studies. The funds will also help the widows financially,” project chairman Rev. Terrence K. K. Sinnadurai said.

He added that more than 75% of pastors in small towns or small churches in big cities do not receive proper salary.

“We wish to enlist 10,000 individuals to contribute at least RM100 each to help us achieve our goal. Christian businessmen and companies are also welcome to contribute,” he said.
Senior Selangor state executive councillor Teresa Kok, who was the guest of honour, contributed RM5,000 on behalf of the state government.

In her speech, she urged the audience to continue praying for the country.
“I was able to sleep well in the cell when I was detained under the Internal Security Act for seven days, while the fact is sometimes I couldn’t rest soundly in my own bedroom,” she said.
