I-Marriage
Man is the head of the marriage but not the
dictator." Wives, submit to your husbands as to
the Lord. For the husband is the head of the
wife as Christ is the head of the church, his
body, of which he is the Savior. Now as the
church submits to Christ, so also wives should
submit to their husbands in everything.
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also
loved the church and gave Himself for her.
Ephesians 5: 22-25

marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the

Concrete help as a
liberator
Our action intended to help the couple/family is to organize a 'bonding day' for them.
After the interview, we helped Mrs. Ong prepare lunch and set the table for all of us. We also brought
ingredients to make carbonara for all of us to eat later on.
After we ate lunch with the Ong family, which was very fun because of all the discussions we had with
them, we all went to their living room to watch a movie.
We watched 'Cheaper by the dozen 2' which is a family-oriented movie. It was fun watching this movie
with them with all the side comments and the laughter we had because of the film.
Then, when the movie ended, we ate the carbonara which was very delicious because of Mrs.Ong's
expertise in cooking italian recipes. After resting and chatting a bit with them, they taught us how to
play mahjong! It was very hard playing with them but still very interesting,
And as if that wasn't enough, we played team-up badminton with them at a nearby court. We played for
hours because it turned out that they were really good at playing badminton but had to stop because
the sun started to set.
After we came back at their place, we rested and talked to them about the whole day we had with them.
We really had fun bonding with the family and thanked them for allowing us to spend the day with
them.
