Korean Spring Sprung...Then Sprang Away Again.




It was so warm a couple days last week that I thought FOR SURE that Spring had come early. We even went hiking with just light shirts on. So I took Harvey to the groomer and got him all shaved - totally - balder than a baby's behind. Then winter returned. :-( Now poor Harve is shaking in the park. In fact, this morning when I got us up to walk he wouldn't even get out of bed and I had to drag him out the door. Tonight I put his parka on him to make it more bearable. Anyways, hopefully Spring will be back soon...or Harve will grow some hair. :-/

Well we had our first Musical Theater class this year and surprizingly 13 boys joined. What amazed me more than anything is that a boy from last year, who is deathly shy, joined again. He reminds me of myself at his age. But when he read for the part of the bad queen he read with such feeling I just knew that he is going to be great this year. Their eyes all went wide though when I played the STOMP video from YouTube and told them that they were going to learn the routine. It is the one with the brooms so it should be A LOT of fun. :-) ...the girl in the picture is my assistant Miss Kim...really nice person.

It is so nice at the congregation these days. A young man from South Africa has started attending the meetings. He is also over here teaching. Brenda and I are really appreciating just having another foreigner to talk to. That makes four of us now, including the brother from Estonia. This week I am going to the printer to have personal cards made up to hand out to foreign factory workers that I pass at Suwon Station which is the big train station here. Often we will see them on their day off but they are going somewhere so quick that they really don't have time for a conversation, so we thought just handing them our card with a number on it, may encourage them to call. Will see. We meet several nice people in passing but it is really hard to connect again because often Sunday is their only day off. Anyway, just trying to think of ways to help these ones.

Well, I should run. All is good here. We finally got handbills for the Memorial so hopefully I can hand a few out over the next couple weeks. All of you, take good care,
Lots of love,

d :-)
