Putting Things In Order

The Nitty-Gritty When I was visiting the States earlier this month, I rediscovered my love for organizing. My mom was in the middle of a move, so I had to go through all my stuff and separate the keepers from the trash. The stuff I did keep, I organized. Random stuff I had kept for […]

Early Morning Prayer: When You are Willing to Pay a Cost

I am not a morning person. As in, I usually sleep through mornings. So you could say we’ve become unacquainted. But this week, I decided to go to early morning prayer.

It was a somewhat spontaneous adventure––the idea just came to me the week before. But the more I considered the idea, […]

Busan: Responding to the Call

Weekend Trip Last weekend I visited Busan (my future home) for the very first time, and I gained a lot of clarity. Saturday night, the pastor down there exhorted my team to hold onto our calling to Busan. Yes, we are being sent by our church, but ultimately we are being sent by God. When rough patches come that […]

New Beginning

I did not think today was going to be a good day. After the shortest summer vacation of my life (one week), I didn’t think I would be ready to go back to school. But today turned out to be surprisingly great. It started with the lovely surprise of finding my whiteboard and desk had been […]
