Yesterday I began teaching.  These kids are actually from the neighborhood around the orphanage.  I don’t have a complete explanation why I’m not teaching the orphans here, but I know everything will be explained in time.  I am still spending a good amount of time with the orphan kids too.  The little ones seem interested…

Yes, its true, I now have a xanga.  Outrageous, I know.  The purpose of this sucker is to keep all you friends of mine updated with my escapades in Korea.  Most of my entries probably won’t be as long as this one, but I wanted to share how God has led me to live at…
