Thank you Santa Claus!

Have you noticed?  The life span of gadgets now-a-days like mobile phones only works normally for about two years? No matter how you take good care of them ... for no apparent reasons it usually stops working after two years... same things happen to all my smartphones for this past 6 years.  After two years, i need to buy a new one.  Smarty mobile industry ... well, if they produce a long life device ... how could they profit more then? ... it's business anyway!  
 Luckily ... Santa Claus is existing in my life ... seems i have been good this year so i got this reward!  Thank you so much for my new smartphone ... and to top it all , i got free docomo-pad too!  What a blessing isn't it?  
To God be the glory!

Summer trip in Kamakura

Finally, i was able to visit Kamakura City!!! 

It's an old city in Kanagawa Prefecture which is rich in historical, traditional and cultural sites.  
It was a political center of medieval Japan.
 Kamakura is also well-known as 
the version of Kyoto in eastern Japan.
I enjoyed many shrines, temples and other old facilities around.

Great Buddha in Kotokuin Temple. 
A monumental outdoor bronze statue of Amida Buddha.

Bamboo grove in Hokokuji Temple

Everyone should not miss riding this... 
Enoden line, popular old train in Kamakura.  
It connects Kamakura to Fujisawa via Enoshima. 

Japanese sweets
so sweet !!

Hasedera Temple

They also have sand beaches where everyone can enjoy especially during summers!  

I am not yet done touring around Kamakura ... I have heard that it's better to visit the place during autumn season because the autumn leaves are stunning everywhere ... so hopefully, i will visit the place again ... most probably in Enoshima area xx

Fellowship retreat

I was not actually decided if i will join or not this overnight fellowship because i am busy in many things in the first place ... but God challenged me to go.
The fellowship turned out to be so interesting and fun.
"God's nature and me" game 

I learned many valuable things through games, sharing and praying.
Thanks for the additional spiritual wisdom.

The nature around us was a blessings too.  It was supposed to be a rainy weekend but turned out to be a bright day!

The foods were great.

The fellowship was awesome in general!
Thanks to Pastora Nilda for leading us and to sis Reina for organizing this 1st JCOB Shizuoka Women's Fellowship.  We were also grateful to sis Reina for the effort of encouraging our families to send us special greetings ... that was an amazing and touching moment xx
The women of God 

We do hope and pray that many can join us next time.

My new toy!

My 5 year old waterproof pentax camera is not working anymore ... honestly, it's sad. 
I will travel abroad starting Sunday and probably go on swimming and hiking so i decided to buy a new waterproof camera ... many suggested to have this Nikon's Coolpix digital camera ... so i did!  
One more thing i like with this digital camera is that it has a build in wifi and NFC or Near Field Communication Technology.   I can easily tag photos from camera to my smartphone.  It also have a GPS that coordinates and maps my shots!
