This time last week I was scooting around Korea with my mom. It’s always interesting how things can just sink right back to normal after they are so different for a week. I mean, I saw mom off Sunday morning and literally just as she had gone, I was back to my routine of life here in Changwon. Having mom here was a nice breath of fresh air (American air I might add). We had a great time just spending to QT together. I took her around on Pearl as we visited my closest friends, checked out points of interest, or just hung out. The best part wasn’t what we did or saw, but it was just having the opportunity to spend time with my mom. Living in Korea you don’t have any family. So we have to really rely on each other, our friends, to be our family for us. I’m glad mom came and I’m really glad that things went as smooth as they did.
The last couple of weeks me and some of the boys have been playing a little soccer with some local boys we happened upon. While its been fun to kick around with middle schoolers, I’m really hoping that God can use us in this opportunity to share Jesus with them. If they are like many other students their age, they probably know little to nothing about Christ and His love for them. It’s my hope that through patience and time God will open doors. Please keep this small ministry in your prayers as we just try to seek the kingdom first.
