November 2009


Every day we  thank to God for what His mercy and favour in our life. Today, we celebrate a special Thanksgiving Day, which is a harvest festival celebrated every year by people around the world. It is a time to give special thanks for the harvest and express gratitude to our God. We have a special dinner to celebrate this day and pray thanking God for His goodness in our life.

Meanwhile in the downtown, we may see the Christmas moment and ornament in the shops, kafe, and in the street making us warmly walking through the downtown. Some shops turn on the Christmas song which we may hear along way of our walking…

Going inside the Cafe and drink hot Chocolate and Cappucino made us feeling warm in the autumn season. Enjoying fjord outside from the Cafe in the night was also nice… 🙂

 HaPpY ThAnKsGiViNg to all of you!

di FjordWe were so happy that my wife´s friend visit us this saturday. She is living in Indonesia currently and had business trip for couple of days in Paris. She travelled this weekend to Stavanger. It was about 4 years ago we met each other in Jakarta, and it was amazing that we met again in Stavanger

After picking her up in Sola Airport, my wife and her went to downtown and walked around the city. Then they went to Thai Resto to have a dinner and continued  having a cup of hot Cappucino in the Cafe. It was a really nice moment that they spent time together to have reunion, power sharing and updated information. After that, they went back to home and took a rest.di lake

In early morning, my wife brought her to the deck behind our house. She enjoyed the panorama so much especially fjord, houses, mountain, ships and sunrise…Then they took a picture.. After that, they went around the fjord nearby our house and continued to Stavanger to meet me since I had travelled this weekend and just came back to Stavanger. Then we just walked along the city, took pictures and had a cup of coffee and some food. It was really nice time for us to share each other even in a short time.

di CafeIt was the time we brought her back to Paris. Having finished our coffee, we went to our car and directly went to Sola Airport.. Saying goodbye each other…hopefully we will met someday and somewhere….

Success and greetings for you and your family ya bu 🙂

Randaberg1Hari ini, kami berangkat berekreasi sekeluarga dengan mengendarai mobil menuju kota Randaberg yang terletak sekitar 20 menit dari kota Stavanger. Kota ini mempunyai keunikan tersendiri, selain indah dan bersih, kami merasakan adanya suasana yang nyaman dan asri di kota ini. Tak lupa juga  kami menyempatkan diri berkunjung ke perpustakaan kota ini dimana  interior designnya  indah dan nyaman membuat animo masyarakat untuk berkunjung ke perpustakaan ini cukup tinggi.Jimmy

Sehabis dari perpustakaan, kami melanjutkan perjalanan menuju pusat perbelanjaan setempat dan menghela napas sejenak di sebuah kafe nan asri di sudut pusat perbelanjaan tersebut. Kopi yang tersedia pun kami nikmati sambil bercanda ria. Tidak berselang lama, kami pun menuju mobil untuk melihat ke perumahan penduduk dan daerah pertanian Randaberg. Benar-benar indah dan udaranya juga bersih.

Pohon di RandabergKemudian, kami menuju sebuah taman umum dimana terdapat fasilitas olah raga outdoor. Kami pun berjalan menikmati taman tersebut. Hari ini sangatlah kami nikmati, setelah kemarin saya menghadiri dua hari pertemuan dengan beberapa perusahaan dan lembaga pendidikan dalam rangka pekerjaan dimana pertemuan tersebut menarik dengan diskusi yang alot…

Semoga di lain waktu kami dapat berkunjung kembali ke tempat ini.

Selamat berakhir pekan!

 

Lee BurnsIt was a nice teaching and preaching last Sunday where Lee Burns, one of Senior Hillsong Australia Ministry traineers has come to visit our church. We are blessed with what he talked about one of the Bible topic. He shared his own life experiences walking with God and with faith in Jesus, all things are possible to whom who believes in Him.

He explained also through praise and  worship, there is a power to unite all churches among different denomination. Although a lot of churches in different denomination, but we are one body of Christ Jesus.

We really enjoyed the sermon on the last Sunday… and hopefully that Hillsong Australia team will visit us again someday.

Have a nice Sunday and God bless!
