Count your many blessings, name them one by one,
And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.
March 10, 2013 to March 10, 2014. One year, millions of surprises. Places I never thought I could ever go, people I never thought I would ever be friends with, things I never thought I would ever do. To mention and count everything is simply too many. So here are some big events and things I am thankful for:
1. March 10, 2013. Sweet jello for sweet 22 birthday! 🙂
*I miss you all girls! Gladys, Nia, Irene, Pingkan and Feli!*
2. April 1, 2013: Bachelor of Science.
After 4 years of study. More responsibility to take on.
3. May 8, 2013: Hearing and reading the word Palopo for the very first time.
All excited after opening the letter but bursting into tears the next five days knowing that having to go so far away for three years. But life went on.
4. June 2013: Lampung trip
First time stepping my feet in Sumatra island!!
first time riding on an elephant!
5. June 2013: Proper goodbye for great people!
Ex-roommies: Priscilla & Gladys. Great mentors and friends from SPH Sentul City: Leanne, Mr. Scott, and Stephanie. Friendly bakso-seller couple at SPH Sentul City.
6. July 1, 2013: Ron’s birthday
the night when Ron, the birthday boy, kept us waiting for more than an hour for karaoke. He never showed up. Finally, ended up singing like crazy and taking silly pictures in our hotel room. At least he finally made it there.
Farewell dinner with the Metcalfes. Lovely couple who have been great mentors during my college life.
7. July 6, 2013 – now: Welcome to Sulawesi!
First time stepping my feet in Sulawesi island!
New places. New people. New experiences. New things.
my students 🙂 little beautiful faces who color my life now.
new lovely friends that I have never imagined I could be friends with. 🙂
places I never thought I could ever be.
teaching them how to read. teaching them how to pray. Things I never thought I could ever do. Here. With these people.
In a year, God has been blowing my mind with what He’s done and I believe that there will be many more surprises coming in the coming years. Wherever this life may go, have Your way, Lord. Wherever this long road may end, have Your way, Lord. Whatever this life may bring, have your way, Lord. Nothing more I wish for this birthday than to enjoy the ride as I’m going this life through.
Because at the end of everything, You must become greater, I must become less. Because I am just an unworthy servant who has simply done my duty.
