In conjunction with International Fire-fighter’s Day Celebration, the Kuching Division firemen of Christian faith celebrated with a prayer service at St. Thomas’ Cathedral Kuching on 9th May 2017 at 9.00am.
Over a hundred firemen from various Christian denominations led by The Asst. Director of Operation, BOMBA Sarawak, Supt. Tiong Ling Hii, attended the service together with students and teachers from St. Thomas’s Primary School.
The service was conducted by the Dean, the Very Rev’d Michael Buma Galami, who addressed the firemen for their sacrifices and bravery in their daily duties to save lives and properties in the face of a challenging job. This service is the first of its kind and considered as a historical moment for the Cathedral.
In his address, Supt Tiong praised his firefighters for their dedication and sacrifices while carrying out their duties of fire fighting and rescue around the world and not counting the time and place of any kind of challenges to achieve their mission. However, it is the trust and faith we put in God through Jesus Christ our Lord that we can overcome our challenges.
The service began with praise and worship followed with readings from the Old Testament Isaiah 43: 1-5 and Psalm 97 by two firemen.
The preacher, Rev’d Doyle Owen Lacasse shared on the New Testament St. John 15: 11-17. Rev’d Leslie Keyu read through the Service guide together with all the fire-fighters present. The Service ended with presentation of love gift by the Assistant Director Supt. Tiong to the Dean, the Very Rev’d Michael Buma and a light refreshment for all those present.
