The Korea Team Is In Their Last Week

100_2292It’s hard to believe that we are in our last week in Korea. Most of the team agrees that the time has flown by and they are not ready to return to the US. We finished up our CEF English camp on Saturday. It was hard to say good-bye to the young faces that we had grown so attached to. Many team members said that last week was probably their most favorite week of ministry here because the students’ English was probably the best we’ve encountered while teaching here in Korea, and even though it was often broken or just a few words of English here or there, we were able to communicate and share our love of Christ with them. The week with the CEF kids concluded with us going to “Paradise Spa” with them. We were told it was a “swimming pool,” but when we arrived we discovered it was a an indoor/outdoor water park!  The team enjoyed floating in the lazy river with the Korean students or going down the water slides together.  It was really a wonderful opportunity to develop relationships together. As the week neared the end, team members and students were swapping email & Facebook information so that they could remain in contact once we return home.  
Sunday, we had the opportunity to visit our third church here in Korea. We attended a Korean service, then had lunch with the church and then attended an English service. Many team members enjoyed having the opportunity to worship in English alongside our Korean brothers & sisters. Many Korean students attend the English services to improve their language skills and some are not believers. On Monday and Tuesday of next week we will be conducting a two-day English camp at this church. Our missionary reports that after our attendance at the church services, an additional 10-15 kids stated that they were interested in attending this English camp with “the Americans”. Please pray for us as we finish our ministry project. Pray that this last English camp will go well and we will be able to effectively present the Gospel through our camp. Finally, pray for us on Wednesday as we will be sightseeing in Seoul and then going to a water park on Thursday with our missionaries. Pray for traveling mercies and that we will take every opportunity to be witnesses to those around us.  
Thank you again for all of your prayers.  100_2295 100_2290
