Surprise!
« on: January 18, 2016, 11:55:23 PM »
What a wonderful surprise this forum is to me 😊. My name is Wendy and I currently live in New Zealand.  My journey to this moment of introducing myself as a 'newbie' to MSM is such a treasure to me for the guidance of our loving celestial family is at work.  I have taken a ride on Urantia for 42 years, have 2 daughters aged 23 and 18 and have enjoyed the gift of being a daughter, companion, mother, sister and friend along the way.  I enjoy the gift of discovery and have spent many hours reading religious texts and participating in study groups.  Many times I've been ushered along and it seems to me that this is one of those moments.  My greatest desire is unchanged for in God I live, move and have my being and each one reading these words feel the same for we all have a desire to serve and love as we are loved.  I look forward to being of value in any way possible and thank you all for the privilege of being part of this great task of bringing light and life to a once backwards and confused sphere.  What a classroom this wonderful planet of Urantia continues to be.  I am a continuous student of the Urantia Book and look forward to the day when I am able to enjoy the recordings of the true history of other inhabited spheres that achieved the status of light and life in their unique way. Your friend, Wendy

Welcome to the forum, Wendy. There are a few others here from New Zealand as well, so I'm sure there will be much to talk about.
I wanted to sail, so the universe built me a galleon.

Hello Wendy, welcome to the forum.

As a long-timer student of the UB it is of no surprise or coincidence you are led to where you are now, so be at ease and enjoy your ride, you will certainly find an opportunity to be of service here with your acquired experiences.

Hello Wendy and welcome! It is so good to have another sister with us here, I hope you find yourself at home with us as we all continue in our journey in Spirit.  Well I'm used to Kiwis as I'm an Aussie and can I say, "G'day and welcome mate!"  Like Overmind says there's a few others from the land of the long white clouds too and it's a wonderful place with amazing people too.  I was just wondering what part of N-Z do you live in?
Lots of love,
Sue/7inOcean

Hi Wendy,

It's wonderful to have you here with us and I look forward to hearing more about your experiences in the paths you have taken and continue to journey.  Now this will be a new road you will be taking with your family here.  I think you will find it quite delightful as we will be a big merry bunch with our divine Parents and many Celestial friends in our company.   

Blessings and love,
Evan

Thank you for the warm welcome all.  What a fabulous place NZ has been for my family and I for a time.  I am originally from South Africa and have much empathy for the people of the African continent.  They have truly suffered long enough under rebellious leadership and lack of understanding of the brotherhood of man under the loving guidance of the Fatherhood of God.   NZ has granted me the opportunity to enjoy a glimpse of progress towards this ideal.  I currently live in the Auckland region but will be moving to the Sunshine Coast in Australia by year end - God willing :)  I lived in California for a year too and am sincerely greatful for the short but enlightening experience of living in another country.  I am reminded of Jesus' own words 'This world is only a bridge; you may pass over it, but you should not think to build a dwelling place upon it.'
