Talking about friends in my life.
They are very important to me. Just by looking at the photos
it really remind me of how important friends are to me.
and every friend of mine has a wonderful story behind, but....each and
every one of them are so special to me. Friends remind me so much
of what fun is, what trust is, what friendship is and what is
Besides....friends did teach me a lots of things about life. For
the first time I experienced care and love is. I always had
of knowing, understanding and believing the existence of care and love,
except God's love. However, again and again, God told me moment
moment, through relationships, through experiences, knowledge of why He
created friends for me.
Even though it is impossible to get a friend
Jesus, like God in this world, but God did put not only one friend in
life. He gave me a lot of friends which when they all combined
it will about the prefection.
Since I attended OCF, Bristol ( Oversea Christian
Fellowship, Bristol, UK) since September 1999, I started to have
concept about friends. For the past 2 years, I have a narrow
about friend because only 2 to 3 of my friends were there to help me to
get through the most difficult time during my stay at Bristol.
I came over to England, my faith in God, my relatioship with Him were
good in the first few months and I experienced how wonderful is the
of prayer. He was so faithful and so wonderful and so merciful to
me. But when things getting better, I started to forget about
about how wonderful He was to me. I asked for Him only when I
Him and God was so amazing and faithful, even though I walked away from
Him, been unfaithful to Him, He listened, He helped. After years, I
again felt lonely, lonely in the sense, I cannot experience my
with God and i started to search for a fellowship and the only way I
was the Christian Union at UWE, Bristol, then, talked to Mary Morgan
BISC ( Bristol International Student Centre). She was kind of
and gave me details of OCF, Bristol. I contacted the president
a best friend of hers emailed me back on behalf of her, invited me for
OCF meeting. I was overjoy, and when i went to CU that evening, I
met another good sister in Christ from Zimbabwe. I called her a
of time after that and invited her for OCF with me as well. Which
was so amazing that we started attending OCF. Friends... i always
tried not to put too much feeling on them nowaday, until one of the
servent of God from OCF invited me again and again for the OCF Camp
Her encouragement really made me think of a lot of thing and, yes, I am
back with God now...which is the most wonderful thing i have now, today
in my life. I was so happy until i can rely on Him on anything,
the examinations, my final year undergraduate examinations. He
me enjoyed those examinations so much because with difficulties, i
His protection, His provident. See...friends are so important
they can encourage you back to God as well. :) I learned so much
from these bunch of sisters and brothers in Christ. One of the
important lesson I learned from them is the power of prayer.
