Last Thursday, I attended my first ever lifegroup here in Hanoi. I was so excited to finally meet new friends but also worried since I didn’t know how to go to the venue. So I decided to text a Vietnamese friend to take me to the address the lifegroup host gave me. Fortunately, it was just near my place so my friend picked me up with her very own motorcycle-scooter 30mins before 7pm. I was so excited especially when she handed me a very cute lady helmet! hahaha. It wasn’t my first time to ride a motorcycle since my older brother used to take me to school in a motorcycle back in Manila. But it was my first time here in Hanoi! As I’ve always tweeted, I thought I’ll be having a motorcycle-phobia or whatever you call it because of the scary motors here — and there are a lot of them! But when I hopped on and we drove off, it wasn’t really that scary. hahaha. I actually enjoyed it and I think I might get a license. It’s really more convenient going around Hanoi with a motorcycle instead of taking the bus which takes too long or a taxi which is expensive. Hopefully, soon….
I joined the young adults/young professionals’ lifegroup and I really had fun. The people were so accommodating and kind. And it really was amazing to witness different people from different nations come together in one faith. :) It was wonderful!
We had a very meaningful Mother’s day lunch with our new found friends. I hope to spend time with them again soon! Yay!
