What are YOU Willing to Do?
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart
And do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He will make your paths straight.”
안녕하세ㅛ? This is how you say, “Hello, how are you?” in Korean.
About a year-and-a-half ago, I was praying as I took a leisurely walk. I asked the Lord what He wanted me to do. The words that were impressed on my heart were, “What are you willing to do?” Immediately, I said out loud, “I’m willing to learn Korean!” Why I said those words I don’t know. Perhaps it was because I usually have several Koreans in my English classes, or maybe it was because we have a connection with Korea through this campus. Needless to say, the words were out there and I decided I’d better act on them.
A few days later I told my Korean friend, Sarah, I’d like to learn Korean. The next day I was surprised when she said she’d like to teach me. We began to meet at her home for one-hour sessions twice a week. This went on for a year.
For the past five months, I’ve been learning in a classroom setting with other students here at our campus. Sarah is one of the teachers, along with Samuel, another Korean, who is pioneering the school.
Little did we know when we began our tutoring sessions that my desire to learn Korean and her desire to teach me was preparing us both for this Korean language school.
I’m grateful for the opportunity to study another language and I’m always amazed at God’s ways. He truly is trustworthy!
