Uppsala Sunday

on sun, we went down to uppsala to visit Word of Life and explore the city. we actually had to meet at the bus stop at 7.25am to catch the 7.29am bus and then catch the 8.11am train to uppsala... it was an early day for a sunday!

at the train station, samuel brought 2 chinese couple that he met at church that had intention to visit uppsala too. and they were taking the same timing train as us. they actually had no idea what time or where is the church, but decided to just head over and ask around. man now that's what i call faith! but they were really glad that they met Samuel and learn that he was gng too. so we all went together, from 4 of us to 6.

the morning sun from our cabin on the train... a 40 min ride..

then when we reach uppsala, we had to catch a bus to the church, so we asked around and met another 3 ppl who were gng there and they were from stockholm. they knew the way, so we made our way to the church together. so now there are 9 of us. hah.. it was just so interesting, that we picked up ppl along the way to church..

that's tom, Samuel's friend, and me before the service started..

service was in swedish but we had the translation headset and service was awesome! the 1st thing the people asked after knowing that we're from singapore was, "Are you from Kong Hee's Church???". i was like yes yes. and they were all so excited. everyone there was really nice, friendly and warm.

but it sure wasn't cheap traveling to and around uppsala. the cost of the bus ride around the city is 30kr, which is abt $7 SGD!! $7 for a 70cents bus ride in sg! so our bus ride cost almost as much as our train ride, 39kr.

after that we met some other asian ppl in the church who eventually brought us around the city. one of which was this guy from chc sarawak by Pst George Ong. he is studying in the bible sch in uppsala sponsored by chc. ;)

that's us having lunch at a kebab eating place..

while visiting, we had a snow war! not just a snow fight, but a war! it was really fun, esp throwing snow balls at people! heh..

after that we visited one of the cathedral and i made a prayer for darling and my family with this prayer candle thingy.. ;)

they have quite a few castles too.. unfortunately they were closed. i'll be back there again in the summer to check them out..

meanwhile, you can check out more of the photos... ;)
