Hello from Korea

Greetings! ^^

As an opener, I will resort to that good ol' cliche: time flies! Tempus fugit.  It does, indeed, and I am writing my hello to you much later than I intended. In this moment, I pause to acknowledge the awesomeness of my God. I am so thankful for the times he wakes me up or keeps me up to talk a while with me. He is such a good God who supplies my needs, who uses people to be a blessing. I know that God has so much in store for me, for you, for Korea, and for this world. I am excited for the best that is yet to come. He has positioned and grown us for such a time as this.

 So much has happened since I last wrote to you all. As you may have noticed if you are linked to me on facebook, more apostolic young people have come to South Korea and more are coming. We have another AIMer that is in the process of raising the necessary funds. Be in prayer for this new young lady that will arrive in Korea in God's perfect time. I am so grateful for these young men and young women of God, as they are a source of support and friendship. Especially with living in a city without a church, it is nice to have a group of people to message, call, facebook, etc. that share similar passion for Korea and understand what it is to be a foreigner here. I am so grateful for all the people that God has allowed to be in my life, my Gwangmyeong church family and the larger body of Christ. I am so incredibly blessed.

 An update on the Gwangmyeong church: Our current assistant pastor is leaving to help in a new church, and his new replacement is a recent graduate of the Bible school here. I am going to miss the assistant pastor and his family. His wife just had a beautiful baby, and I look forward to seeing them and her at conferences and service visits. Just as with the Strouts, though we will miss seeing them regularly, I am excited for God's perfect plan and all that will so exceed all our expectations. Continue to pray for the churches in Korea. So many cities and towns are in need of churches. I look forward to the day when there is once again a church in Daejeon, South Korea.
