Event : Old friend from Philly (11-29)


Ed was my English Bible study tutor when I was in Philly. In the beginning of my school I decided not to go to Korean church, because I wanted to learn more English and I didn't want to belong to any Korean community. When I left my country, I left all my memories and wanted to erase my old picture in my life. No reason to go to Korean church any more.
Every Friday 7:00pm, at 10th Presbyterian church, we gathered for bible study and I rarely missed the meeting and Ed was always there. One day I asked Ed, how can I pray better? and I still remember his expression about the prayer. "Jong, prayer is just a communication with God". years after years I read about many prayer books and listen to many sermons about prayer, but his simple and clear definition about prayer always stays in my mind.
Ed came here over Thanksgiving holiday to see me and to drive Pacific Highway along the beach which he always wished. Sooner or later he will quit his job and move onto a new direction God planned, serving as Bible translation minister at somewhere in Asian country. I hoped that he can find a good spouse and live like other people do, but God might had a better plan for him.
Ed gave me a news that one of our member recently got baptized. she used to say there is no God. but now she has a different life. I wish I could have had more pictures from Philly, church, school friends and other my Bible study members. Oh thank God, you gave me such a good friend and memories and blessing. Hi, Ed, you will be in my prayer. finish your training and be confident with your new direction. so we can have one more gathering sooner or later.
