taking the bridge: father and son journey to toy world

Jedi 031I had a day-off in the middle of the week, so I took Kyz to Toys-R-Us. It takes an hour on bus 10; we enjoy the ride. We see all kinds of people, construction projects, and interesting shops and restaurants. Before we get to our last bus stop, we can see the landmark bridge; which we have to walk across to get to TRU. Seeing it brings its own happiness. While we were there, Kaiser bought a light saber and I got him the mask.

welcome to vancouver, south korea

We met with friends at a new restaurant that features ribs and cheese–what could be better? My wife and son, and my friend’s family are Canadian, so they reminisced quite a bit over the meal. It’s always good to catch up with friends and have a great meal!

be proud of your friends’ accomplishments

Very proud of my friend, KDH, who is a building a new school and following his talents and dream. He spent a lot of time planning, now the school is taking shape. I took these photos the moring they delivered the building supplies. Eight hours later, they framed the interior!

adopt a soldier: private first class oh

adoptasoldier1 016-horzWe found out our friend’s son is stationed with the 31st Army Division, which is a mile from where we live. It is a basic training base; we often hear shooting and light artillery.

On Sunday, we tracked him down at the chapel, filled his arms with homemade cookies and handed him a handwritten letter from his mother (I asked her to write something when we saw her the previous week).

We met this young man a year ago in Suncheon where his parents pastor a church. We also found out that he has worked with YWAM! We plan on having him over for dinner this week when he gets some free time.
