Rest of time in U.K

O.K, I'll be leaving the U.K. tomorrow morning and I'll still connect with this christian community in Camden this afternoon (in an hour actually)...they are called "gloriousundead" and they are mostly punks and goths...
But I'll speak about it after I met them...
So, After Harpenden I went to York to visit a sweet friend of mine, Sharon...I met her in Portugal in a youth camp, King's Kids, where I was helping...she's Australian, but went early to China...she studied in a portuguese school in Macau too and she speaks japanese too (besides english, portuguese and chinese)...waw, I have no words to describe my time with her...it was so refreshing and pleasant...we spent most of the time speaking about Jesus...she reflects His presence in such a sweet and childish way...I love it !!!
during this time I stayed at the house she's staying too...Sarah is another beautiful person I met, she lives in the same house together with 2 other girls...Sarah is christian too and she just have this big heart to serve others...
York was a nice town, placed in a beautiful place and full of different spiritualities...it seams to attract a lot of seekers...
I was with a couple from Youth With A Mission who are pioneering a new training school there for young apostolic leaders...they were really nice and friendly, with 2 beautiful children...I found out that I'm gonna be with him at the Jesus Freaks' gathering next week 'cause he's one of the speakers...small world !!!
After 4 wonderful days in York, mostly with Sharon, I went to Leeds where I was expecting to connect with the people from SPEAK, that organization that was at the Target Europe Conference too...I contacted another girl I met at the conference, Kai, and she would meet me at the bus station...but geting there I found out that the SPEAK office and Emma, the girl I wanted to connect with, is actually in Manchester, not so far from Leeds, but still... But God knew all about it :-), He really wanted me to meet Emma, oh yes He did...she happen to be in Leeds that night for a concert, and she was at the same place I was going to have dinner together with Kai...waw, so many "coincidences"...so, I end up having a wonderful dinner and fellowship in this house with pretty interesting people (also discovering to BE church) and after the concert Emma went to grag me and she drove to Manchester...
Well, I have to leave to another posting as I'm running out of time here...

Love all...
I really appreciate those who have been replying with encouraging words...

Man, it is just so cool the way God just pulls things together if we are willing to just go with Him.
Just love hearing all about your travels. As I read through the last of your bits on Target Europe I got the impression of you being like Paul, the apostle (!), and just being free to travel, to speak, to connected, to encourage those God sticks in your path. But it was very much on the "it is better to be single and put God first" line. Cant remember for sure where that is in the Bible!!
Oh and have read your end part to the Connect Europe prayer shield. That is just so cool. Then was at Distinct Sound tour in somerset yesterday and they mentioned Rainbow people, and how most of thier money for what they do comes from Somerset. It was cool to see the connections, and to not be so surprised at the name, and also to know that Christians are connecting with these people.
love and blessings
