NYC Day 2 Day

What are we doing in New York City?
It has dawned on us that some of you might be wondering what our days look like in New York City. We have been assigned to Living in Faith Christian Church (LFCC) to worship and serve. The churches make up is of young Korean and Chinese Christians. LFCC is in Flushing, NY, so we take the 'F' subway from our island to Jackson Heights where we get on the 7 subway. The 7 subway is a beautiful ride above the ground and it goes right by Shea Stadium, the old stadium and the new one. Then we catch a bus ride to Beth Sholom Temple where LFCC meets on Sundays. This is a Redeemer church plant and they don't yet have their own building. Pastor Stephen Ro indicated it would take $300,000 to purchase a building in their area. The trip takes us about 1.5 hours and we love the worship at this church. During the week we are helping in the morning to teach English as a Second Language to 3 elderly Chinese women. As Steven and I have never taught ESL, this has been a great experience, another addition to our tool box and one that I think I would like to use with the Street Children in the Philippines. But it has been amazing to see how God prepared us to teach this class. He just amazes us the way He goes before us. Our last 3 days of language learning with Mr. Gradin was great training because we can just reverse what he taught us. In the afternoon we have class from 2:00 until 5:30 and then it's home to work on"homework". We deeply appreciate your willingness to journey with us; thank you for your prayers as we have felt God's presence all along the way. Our heart's continue to be full of praise at how He continues to be our Rock and our Guide.
