2018年8月9日是新加坡自1965年以来独立53周年之际。以“我们是新加坡”为主题,全国人民相聚在一起欢庆祖国的生日。众人期待的国庆庆典活动在滨海湾的浮动舞台进行,汇集了超过2600位参与者以及33个演出方阵。没有能够购买到入场票的群众也簇拥在演出场地周围,希望能够目睹晚间绚丽的烟火表演。

“我们是新加坡”的主题旨在欢庆整个国家、其人民、以及这个家园。不管国民们具有什么样的背景,或者他们身在何方,新加坡永远是他们的家。尽管新加坡有着多样化的文化,但它的人民总是在团结中前进、克服困难,并且创造美好的未来。这也是新加坡精神的体现。

在今年的新加坡国庆庆典中,上帝的教会世界福音宣教协会与公共卫生理事会合作举办了一次清洁会动。大约150名来自上帝的教会的志愿者前往滨海湾金沙附近——这是许多人在国庆日聚集的热门地点之一。早在下午3点左右,新加坡当地居民以及外国人陆续占据最佳位置,以便拥有良好的观看体验。今年的项目包括飞行编队以及海军作战潜水员,他们将首次进行空中跳水,模拟作战行动以展示新加坡军队的实力。很多观众提前到达了现场,有些人坐在长椅上,而有些则沿着走道铺设了垫子,除此以外他们还自备了一些饮料和食物。

教会的志愿者身着标志性的黄色背心,举着印有“让我们保持心爱的新加坡清洁!”以及“让垃圾入箱”这样的标语牌。在四下宣传的过程中,不断有好奇的人上前一探究竟,志愿者借此传播了爱护环境的思想。他们也主动上前提醒群众要将垃圾丢进垃圾箱,并告知他们附近垃圾箱的位置。 人们都很乐于参与这样的公益行为,积极响应了志愿者们。作为回报,志愿者也给那些为保护环境做出努力的群众分发了折叠扇、圆珠笔之类的小礼物。

国庆庆典迎来尾声之后,观众们纷纷离去。与此同时,志愿者们开始忙碌起来,戴上手套开始清理遗留在现场的垃圾。很显然,志愿者们早些时候对公众环保意识的宣传起到了很大的作用,会场并没有太多的垃圾需要清理。大家都很高兴能够在国庆日这样有纪念意义的时刻为新加坡的环境做出贡献,并且期望下一次国庆日依然能够拥有这样的机会。

On the 9th of August, 2018, was the 53rd year of Singapore’s independence since 1965. The whole nation got together on this day to celebrate the nation’s birthday with the theme, “We Are Singapore”. The National Day Parade (NDP) was held at Marina Bay Floating Platform, with over 2,600 participants and 33 marching contingents. Some who were unable to get tickets to the NDP gathered near the vicinity to celebrate, hoping to catch a glimpse of the most anticipated fireworks in the evening.

“We are Singapore” celebrates the people, the nation, and home. The theme emphasizes the collective—regardless of origin and wherever the people are, Singapore is the way of life and will always be home. It is also a pledge of unity and togetherness despite Singapore’s diverse culture. It also defines the Singapore Spirit, empowering Singaporeans to overcome future challenges and adversities together.

Members of the World Mission Society Church of God Singapore gathered for Keep SG Clean Campaign

For this year’s NDP, the World Mission Society Church of God collaborated with the Public Hygiene Council (PHC) for a clean-up campaign. About 150 volunteers from the Church of God gathered near Marina Bay Sands—one of the popular places where many gather to celebrate the nation’s birthday. As early as about 3 pm, both Singaporeans and foreigners started reserving ‘the best seats” to see some of the highlights of the NDP. These include the air show and the Naval Combat Divers who would, for the first time, conduct a freefall water jump to demonstrate their operational prowess. As spectators came in early, they prepared some drinks and food to enjoy the night. Some sat along the benches while some laid mats along the pathways.

Volunteers from the Church of God donned in their signature yellow vests held signboards saying “Let’s keep the Singapore we love clean!” and “I binned it right!”. There were curious onlookers and the message was conveyed as the volunteers walked around. They approached members of the public, giving them gentle reminders to bin their litters, and where the nearest bin was. All were receptive and were more than happy to play their part. Foldable fans and pens were given out as souvenirs as a reward for their small but significant efforts.

As the NDP draws to an end, spectators slowly dispersed and left the area. The volunteers then put on their gloves, preparing to comb the area and discard litter that were left behind. Efforts of the volunteers were evidently paid off as the amount of trash were negligible. Everyone had a fantastic time on the Nation’s birthday and the volunteers were elated as they were able to impart the message of keeping Singapore clean on this celebratory day of our nation. Members of the World Mission Society Church of God look forward to their next National Day cleanup.
