Goodbye Korea, Hello Manila

So this is it. The end. I can’t believe how fast the last 15 months have flown by but they have and here I sit just 11 hours away from the flight that will take me away from this country. It’s easy to say that I’ve fallen in love with South Korea and that I will genuinely miss the amazing people that I’ve met along the way in my journey. I hope to see many of you again in the future and I trust God to make that happen! After so much time has passed, it’s easy to not even realize that you’re leaving a place for good. I certainly feel this way about tomorrow. Nothing can really prepare you for it and no amount of goodbyes or farewells will suffice. Yet, life goes on. It’s encouraging to know that for many of my friends I have the hope to certainly see them again in heaven.

So, this is it. Tomorrow morning I’m off to Manila, Philippines for a 2 week stay with John Dorrell and the orphanage in which he serves daily. I’m excited that God has given me this chance to serve and I know that great things are in store for my time there. I’m also excited for November 19th when I’ll finally touchdown on American soil for good…well, for now 🙂 I’m ready to see everyone back home. I’m ready to be home. Everyone asks, “Are you excited to go back home?” And of course I am…but I also tell them that I’m sad to be leaving such a wonderful country, experience, and group of people behind. Will I be back to Korea? Who knows? Only God can determine that right now. But what I do know is that I will let His, not my, will be done.

Here’s my last impressions of Korea. I hope you enjoy it! Goodbye or see you soon!
