Lost Contact Lens

Author: sethskim  |  Category: Various

After our drive back to LA from San Diego, I was exhausted. I ended up falling asleep in the car… I wasn’t a good driving buddy. In my desire to quickly get into bed, I took off my contact lenses in a hurry. As I was popping my contacts out of my eye, one of them slipped out of my hands. I frantically scrambled to find it but due to my tiredness, I decided to find it the next morning.

The next morning, I went to the bathroom to look for the lost contact lens and to my chagrin, I realized that it might have gone inside the sink. Since I have astigmatism in my eye, I wear gas-permeable contact lenses – bottom line… it is more expensive than soft contacts.

I ended up calling up Christina to receive some comfort for my ordeal and to figure out if I would be able to get another pair of contacts. Guess what her response was? “Honey, why are you so expensive?” Haha!

I am more open to LASIK surgery, but it is “expensive.”

Weeks of B-Days

Wow! The past 3 weeks have been a time of birthdays… well, in terms of church b-days at least. About 3 weeks ago, we celebrated the birth of HMCC of Chicago. Then 2 weeks ago we celebrated the 10th year b-day of HMCC of Ann Arbor. Then yesterday, in San Diego, we celebrated the birth of Kairos Christian Church.

I had the privilege of witnessing the birth of Kairos Christian Church. There is something about being part of the first service of any church plant. I could feel the excitement in the air – the anticipation was very contagious.

It was encouraging to see many people from Church of Southland filling up 2 buses right after their service to witness this church plant. On behalf of the Trans-Local Team (leadership of AMI), I was able to give a greeting and some words of exhortation. We closed out the service with Pastor Keith leading us in the Communion.

No birth should be experienced alone – whether it is a birth of a child or a birth of a church. This is why being part of something bigger than just HMCC is important. I can’t wait for the future when we see more churches planted throughout the world, we will all be able to witness it together with the greater body of AMI, whether it is live in that city or live through a video feed. Either way, it is going to be quite a sight!
