What a year 2015 had been! I’m thankful that by the grace of God I’m still alive (something we take for granted), for the experiences I’ve gained this year and here are some of the best things that happened this year:
I took a bite of the Big Apple. We were greeted by buildings blanketed with snow upon our arrival despite it being spring and I didn’t take as much pictures as I wanted as my fingers were freezing (hello, -2 degrees). Nevertheless, I had a good time with Kevin, who acted as my compass/GPS in the city. 🙂 We visited museums, Hell’s Kitchen flea market,stood in Times Square, got a bird’s eye view from the top of Empire State Building and Top of The Rock, cycled in Central Park, experienced falling snow (!!!) and even visited the flower market!
Daddy God has been so good to me this year, I was blessed with a pair of tickets to catch Hillsong’s No Other Name concert by a friend.
I’m so happy that this year I got to show Kevin around the place where I called home and studied for 1.5 years as he’s never been to Brisbane/Gold Coast/Queensland before! This is the first trip that Kev didn’t need to plan. =P We even made time to meet up with Adila for dinner! Btw, it was the coldest winter I’ve ever felt while we were there. We went to the regular haunts that I used to visit and places that I bring friends to when they come to Brisbane. Oh yes, I saw so many rainbows while we were there, Daddy God knows what really makes me happy! On this trip, we made an impromptu decision to rent a car and drive up to Springbrook National Park to hike.
One of the major highlights of the year would be attending Hillsong Conference 2015! It was awesome, with many qarah moments that only Daddy God can orchestrate 🙂 We learnt from our first Hillsong Conference experience and we packed our own meals for the Conference. It was really nice going with friends too!
This year also marks another milestone in my Rock Kidz journey, where I’ve also taken up the role of a pulpit teacher. I feel thankful that Daddy God entrusts me with His little sheep to take care of and to preach the gospel to, it really is a privilege. Nothing gets me quite as excited as seeing little hands raised wanting to invite Jesus into their hearts 🙂
