✪ We made it back from South Korea safely. Thank you for praying. We came back in and got six more months approve on our visas and everyone registered at the local police station.
✪ We had a great trip and were able to spend some time with out teammates. One of the highlights of the trip for me was going to an observatory on the border of North Korea and praying for God to raise up laborers.
✪ Another blessing was the church ran itself for the Thursday night service. What I mean is, we were scheduled to land only an hour and a half before the start of the service. So we had prepared for one of the guys to preach and another guy to lead the singing. When we got to the church, they had everything prepared and led the service themselves. I was proud of them!
✪ Sunday night we had some new visitors and we had great conversations after the message about the gospel and baptism.

✪ We made some crazy changes recently. We canceled 2 of our 4 services at the church. The two services cancelled were the least attended. Now we only have Sunday night and Thursday night both at 6:30. After testing different times, this seems to be the best for now. We have seen an increase in attendance for both services since then and more unity.
✪ Sunday morning we are going to try to reach into a new area. I have gone to an English corner to make contacts. We are preparing to start something in the future there. We will probably do a test bible study in the area soon. We have had great feedback and people are telling me they are interested in the bible and learning more about what it means to become a Christian. Pray for this opportunity.
✪ Pray for wisdom in the coming week. There are a lot of decisions being made. Thank you!
