|me and my comp!|
really don't know what to mention this week so i'll send alot of photos because "pictures are worth a thousand words" hopefully.
on breaking news its avocado season! ive had some avocado icecream and its super weird! it tastes great and i continue to eat it but my mind is not a fan so i feel like gagging. seriously the wierdest ice cream out here.
it's been all going very smoothly tho. i'm getting more and more excited everyday to teach and learn. it is super fun teaching, not going to lie. i have also been reviewing my life a little bit more and my approach to discipleship. it's interesting in John 21:15-19. i think what happens when the resurrected Christ comes to his apostles. He noticed that they had immediately gone back to their same old ways like after Jesus leaves the earth. all the work that they did is as of naught. he gives them fish after a long hard day of none, sits them down, asks Peter (the one who denied him 3 days earlier) if he loves him 3 times. Peter does and he receives the council to feed His sheep. sometimes i worry i'll go home and resume to my old ways, even if they were not that bad, and not remember or just forget the things ive learned out here and all the becoming that has happened. will i get reminded? after reading my patriarchal blessing i realize things really have to be different when i go home. no comfort in the growth zone di ba?
anyway, other than that we are teaching some very complex and interesting familys rn. very fun, but challenging. a good one is a family who is part of a korean "organization" not religion but organization. they beleive all churches are right and accept everything. they strive for world peace through religious unity but do not understand that unity is under one head. it's unity, not compromising. inter faith stuff is super important, dont get me wrong. i love it. this family is amazing tho. they have like 7 kids all with korean names and they are the most calm and respectful family i have taught. LOVE IT! it's fun teaching them and talking to them.
tbh i dont know where this email is going but heres a taste into my life.
