Every nation, tribe, people and language

Different skin. Different culture. Different language. 
Same God.
What a joy it is to worship with believers from the other side of the world!

We hosted two Korean children this weekend that were part of a children's choir at our missions conference. Our children loved every moment with them and Haviland adored having two sisters - even if was just for the weekend.

They left this morning and it will be so hard to get back to our schedule. So far all we've been able to do is re-live the last 72 hours and how great God is to share with us our extended family in Christ.

After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. -Revelation 7:9

 We all couldn't but help notice that every time we took their picture that they held up the "peace sign". Jackson said, "I think it's how they say 'cheese' in Korean." :)

It was also no small thing that by chance God's providence that the topics of Korea, Asia and the Korean War were our memory work last week which led to all kinds of great discussions with our guests. I couldn't have planned that if I tried!!
