Crystal and Sophie...

Well...this is Crystal....on the left.....and Sophie on the right...they have been coming to the Bible studies and MELT classes for the past two months we have been here....

Well we went out for lunch one day....because these girls are going to Africa to study English....wow huh? Crystal is heading to Cape Town and Sophie to Johannesburg (whoa...spelled it right the first time....without cheating)...they will each be there for about 10 months...soo exciting...

Well I dont know why they actually did, but they wanted to take us out and cover lunch, but we let them...it was pretty good, pretty much just chicken and rice and their famous red pepper sauce mixed and pan fried....really good....

Afterwards...we went and bought them some ice creams, then as we were walking around the park by our house, we prayed for them, and then just said bye bye! We all had to go do important stuffs...
I had to go back to Mike's house, so as I am waiting for the bus I see Crystal across the street....lol stupid video...but i dont know....this reminds me of the great skill that my mother taught me when I was a child....saying goodbye (in my case "goodnight") literally like 10 times...lol just for you mom....

We WILL miss you girls, God bless you and your travels to Africa, and the ministry that God will give you out there to accomplish....trust in Him!

im excited....i really like cherry blossoms...and the little burst heat that we had here i think brought out some buds waiting for some sun and warmth....but the festivals and season is still on its way....ill get more when we go.....aight....peace

amateur photographer in the making....

Oh Sunday we were driving to CC Cheonan...and usually we listen to Psalty (kind of like an old school Veggietales) when Jeena is in the car....i already know all the songs by heart...lol

its is funny....Jeena has started this thing where she lays on the floor of the car, and closes her eyes, but then lips the words to the songs...soo funny.

Well anyways...off topic...this blog is about Jeena using my camera to take a bunch of pictures and then a video....

here is APA...

Mike teaches them through the book of Acts...great study...
Well this isnt my first time coming here....but they always do something for newcomers...they invite them up and ask you to introduce yourself, and then they sing a song in Korean kind of Praising the Lord for you coming, and they like recieve you into their church...kinda sweet...and then they gave me a lil gift....new pens...yata! Guess they want me to study more...

Saturday Foundations Class/Brunch....

I got a break from worship and started a new Bible study on Saturdays....we asked our brother from California, John, to play us some worship...it was a blessing...

We gather together first at 9am or so, and do worship as a group....but then we split it up into two groups....men and women....I teach the men foundations or like a new believers course, while Mike's wife Hye-Young teaches through the book of Philippians...
video

Afterwards, we head over to Mike's house for brunch together....this week we cooked some mexican style eggs and some country fried potatoes with cheese....mmm

here is our new believer friend...Joseph....I'm so blessed he came since he just got saved, continue to pray God would disciple him and use him mightly!
This brada's name is Praise....lol funny huh....his korean name means praise, so that is why he chose that for his English name also....here he is preppin the onions, bell peppers and such...
Sosi heading up the kitchen...
I was headin up the potatoes...had some fun with tricks I learned from Keli'i (miss you bud...)
