Heather Smith & The Will of God

Three weeks ago today I was in Devil’s Lake, ND. with a group of people handing out literature for Grace Baptist Church. There’s a YouTube video about it here, by Heather Smith. But something else happened on that day. On the way back from Devil’s lake, I was driving in my vehicle with Mr. Smith and a couple of the Smith kids. As we neared Fargo, we got a text from the other vehicle, which Mrs. Smith, Nicole Buck, Heather and two of her siblings were in. They were going to stop for gas before going back to the church. It was at this point that God laid a plan of action in my mind, and I made the decision to talk to Mr Smith when we got to the church. And so when we arrived, I asked to speak with him outside the car, and so I did! Mr. and Mrs. Smith can fill you in on the wording, but I asked Mr. Smith if it was OK for me to work to grow my relationship with Heather beyond friendship, and he agreed! That Monday Heather and I began courting.

We’ve seen God confirm things and direct in our decisions in this time. Isn’t God great? I want to put this post here on my blog, because this is the biggest thing happening in my life, and the most special to me as well. I love Heather and her sweet spirit and heart to serve the Lord. No doubt there will be more pictures and posts to come!

Trip to Canada on November 11th

Stephen Gomes and I enjoyed a little Canadian trip to Winnipeg on Veterans Day (US)/Remembrance Day (Canada).

We went to a Canadian McDonalds, so as to remain slightly American, and then spent many hours at the Manitoba Museum. We went to the ‘Real Pirates’ exposition, the science museum, the main galleries, and the planetarium. We enjoyed some shopping, went to ‘Speedworld’, where they have 45 MPH Go-Karts, and did some serious drifting, and then finished the day off with some Canadian food at Harvey’s

Safely landed in Denver, CO

Sounds like we’ll be staying here overnight on the airport’s bill. Most of my updates recently are on twitter @timesscript.

Praise the Lord for safety so far!

 
 

More thoughts…

We just had a wonderful church service here. It’s been such a blessing having a Korean woman in the church who is willing to translate all of the services for us. We have radio transmitters and we are all able to use our ear buds to listen to the translation. After the service tonight there was a group photo of many people in the church and our group.

A few days ago we were able to be outside of the Stadium where is the South Korean and North Korean women’s football (soccer) teams were playing. We had a good opportunity to pass out many tracts there.

Earlier in the week I was able to pass out tracts outside of the venue where they have the beach volleyball. One note on that is that the teams are much more modestly dressed from the South Asian countries than they are in America. After the event there was a lot of security around-several busses full of policemen. I offered a tract to the policeman in the front who looked like he was a leader or captain of some sort, but he refused it. Just a minute later he came back with his entire bus of policemen, handed me his cellphone and asked me to take a picture of their whole group. I did so, and also took a picture of them on my phone, and then was able to offer them all tracts. He was the first man to take one and all of them gladly accepted them.

In this group, as well as in many others, it’s been such a blessing to see that one some people see that others are getting a tract and they are moving too fast for all to get them that some will stand back and wait or even reach out their hand to try to get one from you instead of you having to offer one to each one of them. We have also been blessed to see that even when we sometimes have to take a little bit of time and dig through our bags to get out a tract in the language of the person, they will still stand there and wait patiently.

We also had opportunities only went to hand out tracks at the road cycling event. It was raining, so I brought my umbrella. Not everyone had one, including some of the officials. Here is a photo of Andrew from our group being able to use the umbrella and share it with a trainer in road cycling from Syria. We were able to give him a tract.

We’ve also had some fun times when we’ve been able to be nearby a shopping center. We went to a mall and did some shopping here, and afterwards we were in a group together with some of the other Korean brothers and sisters from the church.

God has really blessed, as much as I might want to say that it’s been tough or that we have been roughing it here in Korea, the church has really been a blessing in how much they have provided for us. We have a full breakfast prepared every morning and full dinner every evening, which is more than I can say that I get when I prepare things for myself at college. And then of course we go out to eat for lunch when we are in the middle of tract distribution.  It’s all been such a enjoyable time, and all of the church members are very nice.

Keep praying as we have one more day of outreach and then we are also hoping for a safe trip back.
