JAKARTA – Teh Nizma, one of our friend in London, sent me an assignment to accompany one good friend of her, Benjamin, on his transit to Surabaya tomorrow.
Ben is used to be the England soldier, that has been assigned to Iraq, Afghanistan and Kosovo. He quits from the army already and became a muallaf at 2007.
Now Ben is going to Kediri, joining the Kampung English for 6 months. And before he leaves to Kediri, I was asked to take him go for inner city tour of Jakarta.
Our first stop today is Istiqlal Mosque and I ask Ben to lead us for Dzuhur prayer.
Alhamdulillah, really nice to meet a person like Ben.
