2019 kicked off with some exciting activities. While the Young Adults of Australia were in a pilgrimage at the Abode of Supreme Peace, some of us had the opportunity to be at the Abode of His Legacy in Australia, the Sathya Sai College – Primary & Secondary campuses in Murwillumbah and Dungay. For several years now SSIO Australia members have participated in working bees at the primary & secondary campuses. The working Bee is another opportunity for us give back to the community by spending time in various clean-up activities in the grounds of the colleges. As a result, when the school term commences, students are back to a clean & tidy school, all geared up to absorb more knowledge. What used to be once a year, is now twice a year – in January & July. On 26 January, SSIO members from Gold Coast & Brisbane participated in the working bee. We had a target of 20-25 volunteers, but of course Sai Baba had His own plan and we had almost double that number. This allowed us to complete all the tasks efficiently and well before the rise of the blazing afternoon sun. At every working bee there are always SSIO members who are there for the first time, and it won’t be their last. Many have experienced Sai Baba’s grace during these working bees. Many more are looking forward to the next one in July so stay tuned for the details.
