Today we performed in two services. We’ve been told that Korean’s can be very competitive. Almost every open space is taken up with a stall or a small shop downtown. At the mall and the market yesterday vendors were constantly vying for our business. At this time every high school and junior high school student is going through exam’s and testing at school so the pressure is immense. Most student’s don’t have spare time for hobbies. When asked what their hobbies are they look puzzled and explain that there is no time for hobbies as they are studying. These students go to school all day and for most study all night sometimes only getting 3 to 4 hours of sleep at night. We performed at the youth service first. The young people were very responsive and we were received well. The Youth Pastor was encouraged and the testimonies that we shared were right in line with his sermon. He was completely blown away by the passion of the Team especially shining through their eye’s as he made mention of it repeatedly.
We were treated with pizza and Baskin Robbins ice cream cakes for lunch. The team had time to interact with the youth group which was special, as we passed time in between services. Our second performance was in the main sanctuary which was their evening service. Both performances were not full programs as they fit us in for a ten minute slot the first service and roughly twenty minutes for the second. Again we were received well and made an impact on the church as a whole. We have had people drop food by and they are constantly making sure that we have what we need. We’re enjoying our time here so far and we look forward to the next two weeks here. Tomorrow is a day off so we will do a little sight seeing. Pray for God’s continued favor on our team and for Him to go deeper in our testimonies.
