Report From The States

Just a little bit of story-telling before the long-awaited CA report actually comes out.

Report from United States:

2 days before I boarded a plane to US, I received 400 dollars voucher. Unable to use them up, I thought of ways to exchange vouchers for cash instead. Pat was kind enough to exchange 50 dollars. Thanks, Pat!!! 350 left. What to do? I went to the bookstore to look for people who would be kind enough to exchange voucher for money. Not known to me, I bumped into the bookstore's manager and he gave me 350 dollars for all my vouchers. Wow, God was already helping me even before I reach the States.

2 days after I reached the States, I lost my passport. I was "smart" enough to leave my passport in the bank and I didn't realize anything wrong until 3 days later. Thank God, the bank was honest enough to keep my passport and return it to me when I went to the bank a couple of days later.

The day I checked in to my dorm, I received 12 packets of stuff from Pastor Ha (my former pastor back in hometown). Those stuff are essential stuff for me in order to let me survive my time here in Chicago. I got comforters, bedsheets, pillows, lamps, pens, radio, subwoofer, mugs, cups, plates, shampoo, hangers, other stationeries, files, blank DVDs, a camera (2-megapixel), bath robe, lots of winter clothing, winter boots, and a lot more. Wonderful. God kept giving me stuff that I had to share with my roommate because I just couldn't use them all.

The following week, I took my fitness test and swimming test. I passed both of them successfully. Praise be to God. He saw me through despite me being doubtful of myself.

This is the second week I am in the States. God has just been so faithful to me and has blessed me with so many things. School starts tomorrow, and again, I believe He will guide me through my studies in the States.

Yep, that's a summary of my United States report. God is good and I'll make sure I keep that in mind all the time.

Shivering in the windy weather,
Leen

PTL! that you recovered your passport. Hope you learned your lesson and will be more careful in future. Knowing your carelessness/forgetfulness no wonder you entrusted your passport and air ticket to that AUSMATian at KLIA =p
