På Nordmarka for CU helgen

my friends and I

Another weekend at Nordmarka,
Skiing or walking to the chapel, sharing dinner and meals together, everyone participating in the activities and duties, warming ourselves by the fireplace, having games, learning from God's word and sharing our experiences in group discussions as we pray together.Chatting with friends.

It has been an exciting and enriching experience to build friendships in the CU, as we share life and ministry. I am glad that i am able to contribute in the service and fellowship.

salt shaker conference......snakk om tro

This weekend I was in kristiansand(a city in the south of norway)for a conference by Rebecca pippert. Snakk om tro...meaning talk about faith.
I learned alot from the model of evangelism that she and other believers have practised before, especially that they took time to pray for God's guidance to share His love and word to others. But also that they stepped out in Faith as God was guiding them. These stories showed people who have believed in God's power and the power in His word.....and also that they are so ready to share the love of God as people come together to learn about Jesus.

Its now time for me to practice what I learnt.

Go ye into all the world, and make disciples...

Fresh air around......conserving the environment

The land is covered with beauty, conserving the nature is a part of the culture. From the rivers, the lakes, the forests, the grass outside the home, the flowers around the home....right to those inside the house, or the office.

Taking a walk to the woods to enjoy the nature, to going out in short breaks to get some fresh air, going skiing, or swimming in the sea....are part and parcel of the nordmen.
The laws of the land are strict in gaurding the environment. the garbage is sorted according to how it can be recycled, or reused. A clean surrounding indeed.

Quite different from kenya, the recent mau saga which has undergone a process of destruction over a number of years, some years back, karura had to be fought for to stop the same from happening. The waste is damped at the nairobi river which is supposed to be a source of water for the residence of the capital. the lake victoria and the hyacinth.....a drying lake Nakuru, which has a reduction of flamingos.

Good lesson here...
The good thing about conserving the environment is that you are also a beneficiary of the results, such as non-polluted air, sufficient supply of water and the wonderful walks you can have through the nature.
