I am 23 and a memberof theEmmanuel Communityin Indonesia. The first time I metEmmanuel was when a friendinvited meto the Youth Forumin Indonesia in2005. I did notimmediately join Emmanuel because I wanted toenjoy myteenage lifeandthought it would bean obstacle to making friends or even getting boyfriends.
In 2008, I joined an Emmanuel group in order to go to theInternationalYouth Forumand World Youth Dayin Australia.There Iwas touched bythe personal love ofGod for me andI realized that being in the Communitywas not inconsistentwitha joyful life! Since then I have been moreactiveinEmmanueland I entered theStepof Welcome and Discernment in 2009.
My faith hasgrown a lot. I have become more spiritual andprayerful, more submissive to the Lord andmore open to the missions sent by God. Thisis why, for example, I accepted tobe partof the teamof the Jakarta sector.I was also ableto develop mylove of musicby playingmany arrangements forthe hymnson the guitaror on the piano. InEmmanuel,I feel their fraternal loveand I realizethe importance of prayingfor one another. It is alsomyhome, my family and a place where I cangrow in the knowledgeof Godand in compassion.
