Well a very very testing week it was for me. I have came to accept everything that has been happening in my life as something which i would not understand for now but ultimately God would show me His plans . . . . .
To my amazement when i went to my office on my first day at work a email reached my office account and it was from my care person from the poly i studied in... He got to know that i have joined SP as a lecturer and he was happy for me.. So we met up yesterday for lunch and a long long talk. He is a christian and he could remember me very well as i used to share with him my struggles in life.... He was so proud of me that God has indeed pulled me and provided me my needs to stand tall as His testimony....
When i was studying in Poly i used to attend a christian fellowship and on every Thu we used to meet at one corner of the school to worship and share the word... My lecturer when i met up with him yesterday he told me this. " U know what Bala u guys brought the right atmosphere to the campus by worshiping him in campus but now a days i don't hear that sweet sweet sound anymore" ain't it sad?? I just wish that Christians would stand up for what they believe in which should be Christ ha ha ha.
On the other note met up with my x church mates and he asked me if i would be interested in going on a heavily subsidised trip to the Maldives to teach music in a camp during end July... Without hesitation i told him yes i would ha ha. Great opportunity to extend His ministry in my life... Hooooo Hooooo.
SO these are the updates
so far will be blogging soon....
