Weekend updates..Praise God!

So, for the last weekend, we went to Venice..and it was awesome, great place to go..a good suggestion for those who planning for their honeymoon..this time, not only 3 of us, but Pui (frm France), Carmen, Lukman and ther 2 friends from Germany joined us as well..So it was quite a big group, 8 of us going together, enjoying and having fun during the weekend..Sorry, have not transferred the pics, therefore will upload another post bout venice soon..

Ya, we bump in and stayed a night at the camping site, a budget hostel because it was too late for us to catch the train back..Reached Florence on Sunday evening around 4pm..When came back to room, started to unpack, bath and wash clothes..then the clock shows 6pm..reminded me of church, since I got the address, and had never visit before this, due to travelling..So, i got my bible, put into the backpack, get the Florence map and slowly head to Florence Gospel Fellowship International, Via de' Benci n° 9..Didn't been to this church before, just had a rough info from the website..thought of just going there to check whether is the church there based on website and blog

Ya, so, reached church around 615pm, thought it had already started, it would be a bit disturbing if i enter late, but then when i reached there, the door was closed.It's like those european style, huge and tall doors..I didn't dare to push it, worried it interrupts, and then came a woman (pastor's wife) greeted and welcomed me..I was pretty encouraged and felt so welcomed to the church..not that many people, but mostly are students..around 20 of us..students from UK, US, Zimbabwe...so was cool for me, for being able to join them in church and fellowship..

Anyway, I want to praise God for leading me, guiding me to this church, to this body of Christ where I have found here in Florence..when I knew I was coming to Florence, not only my friends but I asked myself whether or not, I will be able to find Christian fellowship here..and thank God, now have found one..He found me! He is so BIG, so good, that he is everywhere..You will feel home, because you belong to Him :) In the church, we had praise and worship (the songs are familiar to me and in english), testimonial sharings from bro n sis, and encouraging msg from Pastor's wife..Pastor led the praise and worship session..then, after service which ends around 830pm, we head up to a room for fellowship, chatting and some light food n tea..was awesome, it made my day fulfilled because of His presence here with me :) Praise God!

that's wonderful bro. Indeed God has found you, and you have taken the step of faith and obedience as well! Praise God! May God continue to bless you and you will be built and renewed through the fellowship there. God's grace is sufficient for you. God bless.

The smiles says it all! Truly you are blessed! Use your experience in Europe to further glorify the kingdom of God. It is such a blessing to have meet you Malaysians here in Italia! I think there is a reson why we are with GE oil and gas.. we should be the oil and gas for the vehicle of our driver--- Jesus!
