Many thanks to Grace PJ's Daughters of Sarah for visiting us last Friday!
The residents thoroughly enjoyed singing their favorite songs and conversing with you that afternoon. We appreciate your compassion, warmth and the joy you brought in our lives that day, as well as the gift bags and lovely Pandan cake that you provided us.
It's a little over a month into 2018. Last year was an amazing year for us as we were blessed with donations by kind, wonderful people and had many interesting groups of visitors to the home as well.
We ended 2017 with a Christmas Eve celebration that had delicious food, seasonal decorations, several visitors, along with a visit by the Royal Rangers carollers who sang Christmas songs to us, and did a short skit about the birth of Jesus Christ.

All in all, it was an amazing night, with a lot of great food and fun for everyone. We thank everyone who took the time to join us, and for the generous gift of the van that has been invaluable for transporting our residents to activities and to the hospital.
This Christmas eve, the residents of Grace Home receive a delightful visit from members of Grace PJ church.
A project, The Snowman Workshop was initiated by a group of children from the church and lead by Isabelle Chan, age 11; with the purpose of raising funds for the home.
The children and residents participating in the workshop, made snowmen out of white socks, rice, pins and an assortment of craft materials.
To sum it all up, it was a pleasant day filled with laughter and entertainment. The children managed to raise almost RM3,000 through this project, and gave the residents an opportunity to participate in a fun activity for Christmas Eve.
