We arrived safely in Seoul at 11:30 and were soon greeted by the most gracious FEBC staff. I personally have been overwhelmed by their warm greeting and abundant generosity. On each bus seat was a box with filled with our CD, a t-shirt, a beautiful program, a welcome message and below it all candy, crackers, water and more. We are being spoiled!
Now we are traveling by bus to Deagu. I feel blessed to have these long bus rides as it is a great way to see the countryside When we arrive, we will get cleaned up (yea!), eat dinner and hold a 2 hour rehearsal....yes, we need the work, but the rehearsal will also keep us awake until the "proper" sleeping hour :) I think most of us have slept about 4-5 hours since we left, although a few good sleepers seemed to sack out for a solid 7-8 hours on the flight to Beijing.
As an update to contact information, I can be reached via text at 626.806.9450. Ken Stewart can be reached via text or phone at 626.465.3258.
We leave the hotel at 8:00 a.m. tomorrow for a day full of concertizing (3 concerts!). Please pray for our mental acuity, vocal health, spiritual sensitivity and relational openness and wisdom and we have many opportunities to engage with the Korean people...and of course, each other.
Soli Deo gloria. God bless you.
