Third School Begins

There are more mountains and hills on the way to the third BEDTS school. We had to go through five tunnels to get to the building where the school is. It took almost an hour by car. So, one school is about an hour west and one is about an hour south and east from where we stay. This will give you an idea how big Seoul is.

Easter Sunday was very peaceful here in Korea. We “go to church” six days a week while we are over here. Sunday is a day to catch up on rest. It seems odd to not be in church on Easter Sunday, but we worship him and teach in the Korean community every day through the week. This Easter was time with him privately, just being in his presence.

Sunday evening one of the school leaders, Paul Choi, took us to a Korean restaurant for dinner. We have become very good friends with him through the years we’ve been coming here. We had our translator with us so we were able to communicate. We enjoyed our time with him as we age Bulgogi and Kimchi, one of our favorite foods over here.

His adult daughter had a stroke and is in the hospital. He and his wife have been taking turns staying at the hospital to be with her. His wife spends the day there and he spends the night. We had an opportunity to pray for her and for him. He was greatly encouraged and comforted by our prayer ministry. Our Father God touched him deeply. He recorded our prayer for his daughter on his phone so he could take it to the hospital for her to hear. Modern technology is awesome (for those who have learned to use it).

As I write this, I am reminded of another incident several years ago. The lady who was the leader of all the schools at that time had a son in the US who was having difficulty with a leadership situation. She had us pray for him. When we were through praying for her son, she pushed a button on her phone and informed us she had emailed our prayer to her son in Washington State. How awesome is that?

More will come later this week.

Looking forward,

Arrived and Ready

04/13/2014 1 comment

Our flight to Korea was good; every plane was on schedule and arrived at its destination a bit early. The flight from Detroit to Seoul took almost 14 hours. We were going toward the sun, so the sun never set. We arrived at about 6:25 pm, almost 24 hours after take-off from Myrtle Beach at 7:00 am. We were able to rest well Friday night (which would be Friday morning in SC). Our Father is good to us.

Our first problem was to find a way to have internet available. There is Wi-Fi available in our apartment. The person who picked us up at the airport thought no password would be needed, and we were too tired to pursue it that night. Saturday morning we discovered that a password is needed and no one was available to give it to us

He said to email him if we had any questions and he gave us the phone number of the manager of the guest house. Without the password we could not email him. There is no phone in the apartment, so we could not call to get the password. So we went to Starbucks and used the internet (with Lynda’s notebook) to inform friends and family we had arrived safely.

It was my intention to go to Starbucks Sunday morning to get on Facebook and to email and find out what the password is. I went to several different shops including Starbucks. Coffee shops do not open on Sundays here. (Can you believe it?) So I got exercise walking up and down the streets of Seoul, but still no internet. The grocery store was also closed on Sundays.

Late Sunday afternoon the guest house manager came and gave us the password, but I waited until early Monday morning to post this blog.

Our first teaching for the YWAM BEDTS (Business Egals Discipleship Training School)  begins this morning at 10:00am and the driver will pick us up at 9:30. In spite of all this we had the weekend to relax and prepare ourselves for the ministry ahead of us these two weeks.

I will keep you informed as things develop here. Keep us in your prayers
