Hello from Korea

New School Year
A new school year is just around the corner, around the corner of the weekend. The first day of classes is Monday, March 4. This year will be a bit different as I have been assigned to two schools. I will spend 3 days a week at my current school and 2 at the new school. This change comes with its usual bunch of jitters, but I look forward to meeting the new staff, teachers and students. Wolpyeong Middle comes with its own set of changes as three English teachers left and were replaced by three new teachers. I love the new faces, but I shall miss the old ones.

Gwangmyeong: While Pastor Kang is visiting with family in the States, Sis. Kim and Bro. Oh, the assistant pastor, have been covering the services. Sis. Kim leaves for deputation in a little less than a month. It shall be a different country without her around. I shall miss having her at church, not just for her translation help. ^^ She will return in a year, prior to the start of Bible school semester. In other news, we have a new(ish) missionary couple, though I have not met them yet.

I continue to volunteer at the same orphanage in Daejeon. Some of my kids will be moving on to middle school, so they will no longer be in our Monday night group. One of the girls does exceptionally well in English-to the point of freely seeking out frequent conversation. I hope that continues during the dinner time. I and the other volunteers eat dinner with the kids and staff before our class. I look forward to these weekly classes. I enjoy working with a different age group.

With all the changes, I should have more to report in the next few months.

Thank you for journeying with me. The best is yet to come!
