Atlanta Update 1

Author: sethskim  |  Category: Visits

The family and I arrived in Atlanta yesterday. We were greeted by Pastor Matt and ended up having lunch together. Then, the family and I went to the World of Coke. It was great learning about the history of Coca-Cola. The best part was being able to taste close to 64 different flavors of Coke from the various parts of the world. I was pumped when I found out that they had Stoney Tangawizi. It is like a very strong ginger ale.

Then, we ended up meeting with Jonathan Lee, an alumnus from the University of Michigan and our Focus ministry, and we went to the Cubs vs. Atlanta game. It was pretty interesting to find so many Cubs fan there. I still think they are the most die-hard fans in the whole world. In fact, I think there were close to one Cub fan for every three Atlanta fan. I have never seen anything like it.

As the kids were getting tired, after the 7th inning stretch song, we headed back to our place. We are heading out to Six Flags today.

Christina and I have been so blessed to see Pastor Matt and their whole church being so generous. Not only did they open up a whole place for us to stay (one of their member’s place) but they have been providing for all the activities and meals. I am praying that in what they sow in, they will be able to reap a double portion of blessings.

We told Karissa “just a taste” but as you can tell, she was gulping
