My life changed after Armenia

I had a really good time, my life changed after Armenia. I have noticed that when you pay attention to all the details in social life, people will recognize it and copy that in their own life.

The fun is, it is very simple, because the way you are changed affects people and they will change automatically. When they change they will change other people too.


Thanks a lot for all the ideas, life changing methods, hope and spirit, faith and that I could experience this event. The day I got back I went to the Church and I was touched by the spirit. This week was something I will never forget, never stop speaking about and will experience as a stepping stone which I can build on.


Bible, Matthew 7:24-27 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”

The conference is that rock, the rock I can build on. With this rock I can hear the words, practice the words and learn to be a wise man.
