God Is So Good...


When it comes to every Thursday during the semester, STM students seem to be praying especially hard.

What are they praying for? The seminary? The faculty and administrative staff? Fellow students? Their studies? I don't think so.

What are they praying for? They pray that it would rain...and more specifically, they pray that it would rain at 5pm...

This is because on every Thursday at 5pm, it's time for gardening where the entire student community is required to work on the grounds of the campus.

And they pray fervently for rain...

Somehow the Almighty seems to have special compassion on the students and answer their cry.

Somehow, it seems to rain or drizzle at the right time; if not, there would be sounds of thunder; just enough for the announcement to be made that gardening is cancelled. Then the rain or the thunder stops... This has happened several times already this year.

Then you can hear shouts of joy coming from the halls of residence, echoing in unison..."God is so good, God is so good..."

But what do some of the students do when gardening is cancelled? They go down to the basketball/volleyball court and demonstrate their fierce competitive spirits in the game - rain or shine...

Marvin once said: It's only Eden bcos there's a human gardener. Without one, it's the Amazon! :)

But also good ar, having an Amazon near the seminary can have lotsa adventure activities

Dave,

Hahaha...hmmm...come to think of it, when I was in the UK, I'd prefer to buy books from Amazon.co.uk than Eden.co.uk...wonder whether is there any connection here?
