Sometime ago a very kind hearted lady donated five wheel chairs to Grace Methodist Church for its many ministries. One has been approved to be given to Rh Aling where there are several invalid great grand fathers and mothers. Thus I delivered personally one wheel chair to the longhouse on lst June. Another wheel chair would go to Selangau at the request of Rev Johnathan Nora on 12th June.
Three others would be given away whenever a request is entertained by Grace Methodist Church.
I was able to bring the wheel chair to the longhouse . The Headman TR Aling and the Penghulu Robert Kunyut expressed their gratitude. Usually a donated wheelchair would go to one patient. But for Rh Aling the wheel chair will be taken care of by the JKK (the men in blue) and whoever needs to use the wheel chair they can ask the Tuai Rumah. After much discussion this was the decision made. Whenever Grandfather Biden needs to go to the hospital in Limbang he can use the wheelchair. Thus his daughter in law and his grandson need not carry him on the back. Indai Tajak (Or Enek Leedon) would also need the usage of the wheel chair each time she goes to the Limbang Hospital. These are two of the less able bodied longhouse residents.
The happy JKK. Tuai Rumah Aling is the second man from the left. Man in the middle is the Penghulu.
Great Grandfather Biden. (He happens to have the same name as the Vice President of the USA) He has very very swollen legs now. But he still has a very good memory. He says that the weather is always too hot for him to wear any shirt. He remembers the days when it was cold at night he had to wear a soldier's jacket. He is referring to global warming.
Grandmother of Leedon here cannot walk very well. She is extremely light weight. She sits by the door every day and watch life going on. A wheel chair can help her go to the hospital more easily and she does not need any one to piggy back her any more. Her dignity will be intact according to her daughter who is a padi farmer.
The kindness of this lady who wishes to remain anonymous will be remembered by many people throughout Sarawak. Bless her heart. And I am sure she and her family would reap great blessings. And May God bless her always.
