I had a pleasant experience during my stay in the Hague Netherlands. As an international Master’s degree student from Kenya, I did not have any friends in The Hague so I was very anxious about how I would cope being many, many miles away from home. My roommate, Sibo and I met IFES staff, who was really warm to us, she introduced us to her loving family then invited us to the IFES Spring Retreat where we met many Christian international students. It was a wonderful experience interacting with them for the few days that we were together by singing, playing games and sharing God’s word. Long live IFES! The Netherlands is such a warm country and I will definitely be back to visit once the COVID pandemic is over. I miss taking the tram and eating the yummy Dutch fries with mayonnaise and onions 😅.
