A Sai volunteer from New York, USA shares his joy for being given the opportunity to serve in Tacloban, disaster relief!
I’ve always prayed to Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba for the opportunity to serve as His instrument for whatever task He has chosen me. By Swami’s grace, I was given the opportunity to travel to Haiti to be part of the disaster relief operations undertaken by the Sathya Sai International Organisation, Disaster Relief Committee. Subsequently, I was ecstatic to receive approval from the Disaster Relief Committee to participate in the humanitarian relief mission for those affected by typhoon Yolanda in Tacloban, Philippines.
I enjoyed meeting our loving Sai brothers and sisters in Manila and serving the needy in their company. Their love, devotion, sacrifice and commitment to serve the community was inspiring. In speaking with those affected by the typhoon, listening to their stories of survival and learning about how they are coping under adverse conditions, was an eye opening experience. Each meeting allowed me to share love and positive thoughts and was amazed how the local community members were touched by our concern regarding their well being.
I was very happy to serve the typhoon affected communities and am extremely grateful to Bhagawan for this opportunity.
