More than we ever hoped or imagined

We have just finished two days in Daegu and are on our way to Mokpo via Daejeon. The night we left home, Dr. Corey sent me a text saying, "I pray that this will be more than we ever hoped or imagined."

In just 3 days and 5 out of 24 performances down, it has already been more than any of us could have imagined. We have been showered with gifts and an abundance of great food ALL of the time; we have a new standard for welcoming guests in the USA. But even more memorable has been the reception by the people. We have sung with two children's choruses and have been mobbed by the friendliest kids we've ever met. Their enthusiasm and openness has really blessed us and left its mark.

The audiences have also been warm, receiving and incredibly enthusiastic.  FEBC and the local pastors have expressed that they hope our music will bring revival to a people very much in need of refreshment in light of the ferry tragedy; we hear that they have been very moved by our singing. In fact, I think we would all agree that we have never experienced such an amazing reception of choral music....EVER. Our hearts and minds....and camera cards are already full and it is only performance day 3. God bless you.
