I’m going to Korea!
On June 27, I will step aboard a Delta flight and experience the BIG PICTURE (above) in a way I haven’t yet: in Busan, South Korea (also called Pusan) at a conference with 15,000 students from around the globe, called CM2007.
I’m thrilled. My job directing the Staff Web (our internet connecting our U.S. staff members) is a great fit – but the wanderlust and need to write is kicking in pretty hard. I love that God knows me better than I know myself.
So He surprised me with a left-field opportunity to freelance a feature article for Worldwide Challenge again (like I used to!) and fly to Korea for this landmark conference and report it for our readers—encouraging them lift their eyes to a big God.
- For the 15,000 Campus Crusade students from 105 countries who will descend upon Busan, South Korea on June 30-July 6 for a landmark training event, similar to the student volunteer movement of the early 1900s (that propelled an incredible number of young people into the mission field).
- Pray for finances for the students to go (especially those in 3rd world countries), for them to see a bigger picture of God and fall in love with Him more, for hearts and minds to receive a passion and plan for how God might use them to help change the world. (You can help scholarship someone to go!)
- For me as I travel, listen to students, enjoy God, and write the feature. I leave Orlando on June 27 and return July 7.
