Teaching in Macau (2)

On this week's "Love and Life", we invited Sabina, a teacher from Macau, to continue to share with us her teaching experiences in Macau. She talks about how through her work in education she was able to bring God's message to the students and some of the challenges she has faced during this time. Although many students were not familiar with the Catholic faith, through various religious education and volunteer service, they were able to gradually understand the correct moral values, with some even entering the Church. Finally, she shared about her illness and how she was able to be more thankful as a result, encouraging us to trust in God's plan for us, to respond to His call and leave everything into His hands.
