Oh no! It snowed again over the night and I missed seeing them coming down from the sky. But we woke up with a fresh icey cool breeze and white patches laid all over the ground, buildings and mountains. The view during the day was breathtaking. We couldn’t see much when we arrived last night, but now…the view of the mountains gave the feeling of tranquility, peace, calmness.
The layout of the church, with curved giant glass panel windows facing the mountains, I regretted not taking a video of the view. Imagine sitting there having a cuppa, and a History of Redemption book, reading while being surrounded by white layers of mountain ranges.
I can’t begin to fathom how did Sr Pastor lived through the 3 years, 6 months, 7 days in the cave all the way up there. Without the amazing grace and protection of God, this would never have been possible. Even from below here, I was already shivering in the cold.
Breakfast was super super hearty! It had my favourite food too, lotus roots! The beef soup was superlicious good especially on a zero degree morning!
With our tummies now filled, time to feed our heart and soul with the Word of God! This was like the fulfillment of nations come dancing with joy to the Word of Redemptive History. We have congregations from Japan, Korea, China, Indonesia, Singapore, and us from Malaysia. Even though the deliverer of the Word is in Korean, we are blessed with great translators who translated the message to our native language in order for us to understand.
By noon, we stopped lecture for lunch at the nearby restaurant, 5 minutes walk away from Nogodan church. I couldn’t believe my eyes seeing vast surrounding mountainous range with snow all the way up. It was cold but the sky was clear blue so the view was picturesque!
Lunch was great as well, a little ndifferent from what we could get in the city. The dishes and the style of cooking were slightly different. We occupied the entire restaurant, and the owner was beaming with happiness. Wherever the Lord is present, abundance follows!
I couldn’t wait to finish my lunch as I wanted to hang out more outside and to experience as much as I can of the amazing view, freshness of air, the calm and tranquil feeling.
The view outside Nogodan Church, up close and from a distance away. *shwings* I could sit outside all day long and set my eyes on this beautiful scenery.
What made this even, much, much, much, more special is the fact that this was THE Mt Jiri, where the History of Redemption Series was born and also every drop of water that we drink here in Nogodan Church was filled with Sr Pastor’s love.
The pipes were all changed and the water that we received were water from Mt Jiri, rich in germanium. He said that the most important thing is to have the people of the Word receive the water of the living, the living fountain where the Word of God sprang forth.
I brought back 2L worth of Mt Jiri water back to Malaysia, and truly, this was really some deliciously amazing water. It could remain cold for a very long time even out of the fridge and every sip tasted so fresh!
