North-East Visit (Part 1)
So there a few parts to this but in the first 2 weeks of our time in the US.
Our hosts, the Kims, were amazing as usual. Friends for many years, they opened their home to Grace and me. We had an amazing time. One of the highlights was the 2011Pillow Fight World Championship. Team Kim (Abby&Becca) took the title.
Grace and I got to minister to my New Church family.
One of our surprises was while we were having dinner at Chris Kim's home, Grace was given a hanbok. I can't believe it fit and looks so beautiful on my wife!
Our Wedding Brooklyn Braai (Bbq) was so much fun. It was another great time for Grace to meet so many important people in my life.
Another amazing time I was greatly anticipating was Grace getting to meet my sibling's (Peter and Jane) families for the first time. The kids were so great with Grace.
Before we left for Switzerland, another great friend, Herbert Lee, took us to Time Square Church and then out to dinner to the Mandarin Oriental on Columbus Circle, where we were spoiled with great food, great service, great company and a great view.
As I've been looking back on our trip, the amazing that occurred to me is that there are so many more important people that Grace has not met or did but due to time, we didn't get to spend much time with. We wait in anticipation for more...more surprises.
Everyone, your support was so overwhelming and God continues to spur us on through your love and support. More is coming.
