Details on Korea

It is evening, I am tired, and I am distraught and discouraged.  The good news is I know when I'll be leaving, and I have a name for my housemate!  I'll leave the state at 05:00 next Sunday morning, and I'll leave the country around 13:00 that afternoon.  I should arrive in Seoul around 17:00 Monday!  I'm so glad I have that important detail nailed down now!

I got two emails today.  One was from my Footprints contacts showing me a link to The Arrival Store which has done an excellent job of reminding me of all the things I need to buy in order to live well in my apartment.  I don't know if I'll be able to fit towels or sheets in my suitcase, so I think I'm going to have to buy some, and that's never a god sound to the ears of a recent college grad.

My other email was from my contact at my school asking if I would be okay having a male teacher for a housemate for two months.  When I read the email this afternoon, something in me shut off, and I didn't even register the rest of the email until I reread it 30 seconds ago.  The email encourages questions and gives a sense of concern for my well being, so I feel a little bolstered in my request for solely female housemates.  But gosh!  I had assumed all of that potential discomfort and had a very strange couple hours after reading the email!

Whatever happens, I'm sure I'll be fine.  Also, I am completely sure that God is in control, He loves me, and I have no reason to panic.  Ever.


  1. don't panic. Remember to enjoy your journey. This is going to be an amazing adventure!

  2. I'm so excited for you! And I will be praying for you as you prepare to leave and while you're in Korea!
