“We had our kids go and compete at biblebowl. My kids taught me something that I believe through just studying the word has given them more integrity then they might think. We were going to the finals but the judges did not catch a error during the game and technically we were in the finals. They came up to me (coach) after the game and asked if they could play that over because the answer was accidentally given in the question. I asked my team and on their own made the decision to go to overtime instead of taking the win and getting a chance to go to Territorial competition. I saw that God was working in them through the word they were studying and showed me that they had what it takes to be Christians. I am blessed to have taught them this year and they are looking forward to next year.

“Since the 10th of March, every Tuesday we have senior college. At 7:30 in the morning Capt. Kihyun Oh picks everyone from the east side of Phoenix (Mesa and Scottsdale area) so that whoever wants to attend may go. At 10:00 A.M. there is worship, and a lot of people have been expressing that they are touched from the service and always get something out of it spiritually. Some activities that are provided is computer classes, golf lessons,Calligraphy as well as ukulele lessons. Ukulele lessons are a hit, everyone loves learning this instrument and love that they can sing for God during the lessons. It is great opportunity to become closer with everyone through God.”

“We had 3 ladies and 3 kids come to hear a devotion on the names of flowers and how God cares for them but even more so for us. We also had a Master Gardener help each one transplant a marigold for their room. The ladies asked questions and were inspired to plant gardens when they get into their new homes. We ended with a dirt cake treat. ”
