something for someone.........

Today, my friends from The Cu group and I went along the streets to share boller and tea to the street guyz . It was so nice to see a smile on their face as they recieved our small package. At first it was abit scary, we wondered whether they will accept but the outcome was so fulfilling.

wow................Its a beautiful day

Before I came here, I didn't know how to define what a beautiful day is like. Now I can wake up and look outside and describe what its like.

Well, today was one of those, the sun was up and the clouds were so clear, so I went to visit the viking ship museum.....i like how history is preserved. It was indeed a beautiful day.

Its maze time.......

At one point I was wondering if I would ever cope with the quietness that surrounds me. I wondered why people ask questions of why would God do this or do that.
I wondered how I would manage to make friends in a culture where it is said its hard to make friends. Wondered how I would make it to enjoy this opportunity even if I really wanted to do my best. Not to forget the language, listening and interpreting to english at the same time, that can be tiring.

But then, I asked myself what good am I doing sitting here wondering, and thinking of how hard it can be. Why don't I try make the best of what I have. The quiet is good for me to think on issues, reflect and grow in knowledge. The questions are opportunity for me to delve deeper and build strong convictions of what I believe. Its an opportunity for me to trust God to reveal Himself and guide me through in this journey. I can start slowly by slowly to practice speaking the language instead of fearing to make mistakes.

That i can move with the cheese, or move my cheese. Scury into action. Not just sit in the maze complaining and having a negative attitude.
I like it when the attitude changes, inspite of the challenges. I promise to do my best and be positive and help others.

Get Focussed Conference

This weekend I attended a conference at Tø was amazing, young and old gathered together. The vision of the conference is to have christians uniting from all churches and indeed they came young and old from different parts of Norway and from different churches. It was 1500 people and such a gathering here in Norway is big. Everything was communicated in Norsk....mmmhhh...I tried my best to understand, which I did for somethings but not all.
Isaiah and I were supposed to join the service team to serve food which we did on the first day, but somehow we ended up in the prayer team and I liked it alot.
For the first time here,I was in a christian gathering where people danced and jumped while singing.People prayed in tongues and got word of wisdom and prayed for the sick. That was a new experience here in Norway.I must say I liked it alot.Its awesome to see what God is doing here.
I aslo met my colleagues from hald: Marinette, Mirana and was a nice time for girls to hang out together.
