Vision Trip Blog – Day One September 18, 2009

Just arrived at Incheon, Korea. I have a seven hour lay over before I
head to Taipei. On the plane, I had an interesting conversation with a
Chinese gentleman in his 70’s who lived most of his life in Atlanta,
GA. I asked him if he went to church. He told me that he worked all
his life at a Chinese restaurant and never could go to church. But he
did say that he alway thought Christians were the nicest people. He
had a very favorable impression of Christians, and even told me that
one of his brothers became a Christian and is now serving in the
church. One day he would like to go, but now in China, he doesn’t know
too many Christians. I encouraged him to start looking for a church,
hopefully his brother can continue to share with him.

Two quick lessons: Be nice. Our testimony is either enhanced by our
behavior or repelled by our behavior. Second lesson, sharing our faith
is not a one person show. God is working through multitude of people
behind the scenes. In other words, it doesn’t depend on one person. We
all work together.

Later, I will share with you the stress of the first day. (hint: lost
my passport two hours before my flight . . . )

Check out my blog with whole bunch of facts, videos and insights on
Taiwan and Vietnam. https://transformission.wordpress.com

Also, our team of pastors has a blog on our travels:

Keep me in your prayers to be led by the Spirit of God on these vision
trips.
