Family Time at Cosi

I love being able to come back from my travels and just spending with my family. Today we spent some time in Toledo, Ohio at the Cosi hands-on science museum. It was helpful that we had a family membership. It allows us to go to any of the museum within the membership network such as […]

Physical Shape and Spiritual Shape

Yesterday I decided to get back into my running to keep in shape. But due to all the travels in the last 4-5 weeks, I have not been able to run at all. Therefore, within the first 10 minutes of my run, I thought I was going to die. My body was totally out of […]

The Cost of Missions

This pass week, I briefly heard on the news about 23 Koreans who were abducted in Afghanistan on July 19th. You can read up on the story here. Since then the Taliban killed one of the hostages. I found out that the person who was killed was Hyung Kyu Bae, a 42 year old pastor. […]

Webcam with Leaders

This morning I had the opportunity to be at TEAM Community meeting (our leaders’ meeting) via webcam. Due to all of my travels this summer it has been awhile since I have spoken to the leaders. I wasn’t sure how things were going to work out, but I think overall it went well. There were […]

A Journey of Faithfulness

During my personal retreat, I had the opportunity to visit the Billy Graham Library. I have visited the Billy Graham Center Museum in Wheaton many times before. But this was my first time at his library. I have always been inspired by the life and the legacy of Billy Graham. There is a basic introduction […]

Online Maps

So far, I have used only 3 different online maps – MapQuest, Yahoo Maps, and Google Maps. It is interesting that sometimes when you try to find directions to a place, you get three different directions from these online maps. I am beginning to wonder if they are using different programs or satellite configurations. It […]

Racism is Alive and Well

Yesterday, I experienced something that I have not experienced for a long time. As I went into a restaurant to eat, there was a family in front of me waiting to be seated. It was a family of five. As they were being seated, I overheard the youngest girl (about 7 years old) say, “Mommy, […]

Packing Faux Pas

A person knows when they are going insane living out of their suitcase when they forget to pack important items! In the midst of all the packing, unpacking and then packing again, I forgot to pack my underwear! Thank God this area has a Wal-Mart or I would have worn the same underwear for the […]

Travel Fatigue

It is finally hitting me as I am sitting in DTW right now. I ended up going to Chicago yesterday for the Sunday Celebration and I just arrived this morning. I am currently waiting for another flight and something inside of me is loathing all the traveling. When I was a bit younger and I […]

Reconnecting in AA

It was good being back in AA for Sunday Celebration. Even in the midst of all my travels there is something about coming back “home” and celebrating God’s goodness and greatness with our biblical community. As we have just finished off with our series on prayer, it is my desire that all of us will […]

2007 SE Asia Update 11

I am finally back home in Ann Arbor. I was able to talk with some of the flight agents to allow me to get on an earlier flight so that I will have more time with the family. It was a long plane journey from Jakarta to Singapore and then from Singapore to Tokyo… then […]

2007 SE Asia Update 10

Traveling with Pastor Seth is never boring… it is always a crazy adventure. As we were flying (in the taxi) to the airport, we rushed to catch our flight to Surabaya, Indonesia from Malaysia. The only problem was that we were supposed to go to another local airport that was 20 minutes away! We just […]

2007 SE Asia Update 9

We had lunch with a bi-vocational pastor. Pastor Noel grew up with a passion for technology, design and engineering. He was able to combine these passions and talents together to form his own company. Through this company, he is able to engage in the marketplace (the “Commerce” in the CHARGED acronym). He had some powerful […]

2007 SE Asia Update 8

I spent some time reflecting this morning. I was just humbled by meeting Pastor Eu Hong Seng yesterday. He is the senior pastor of Full Gospel Tabernacle which has been in existence for about 25 years. They started with the youth (young high school and college students) and now they have a vibrant community of […]
