New Beginnings

I have been in Dallas the past week for a teen gathering and camp for Korean adoptees. This is a new camp and we have seen Gods fingerprints all over it this week! When I walked into the church I saw the heart that I posted above and thought it was so appropriate.
We are so blessed to have young men and women who were adopted from Korea helping us with the camp. They have been incredible!! They lead classes, are counselors and mentors and to watch them with the young campers is amazing and just touches your heart. They do not have to be here, they have chosen to be here!
A wonderful Korean congregation is letting us use their beautiful church. They have already asked us to come back next year and the year after that and on and on...
The Korean community here has been so good to us. The support has been wonderful!
But nothing and I mean nothing compares to the smiles on the faces of the children attending camp and the young adults who are helping us. They know that they are in a place where they are loved and can be themselves and that is what it's all about.
