12 Romanian Women in Korea
The WOGA conference is starting today in Seoul, South Korea (see http://www.wogakorea.org/for info). By God’s grace, 12 Romanian women were invited to come and made the trip here. They arrived yesterday after 20+ hours of traveling (or 40? – some took the train to Bucharest). They made it to their place of lodging (after some misses – the bus driver had a hard time finding the right place :), and they ate Korean food (some perhaps for the first time?). Most of them liked the food (the kimchi was too spicy for most), but the hunger may have played a role too (?).
In any case – they are here, and they are open to learn from the speakers, and from each other. It is a wonderful opportunity for all of them to get to know some of the Christian sisters from other places (there are women here from over 70 countries), and to be able to pray for those who are persecuted and restricted in their service for Christ. It is – I believe – a time to learn to be humble, and to serve in communion with other saints, through prayer, encouragement etc.
I am posting this, to encourage these 12 women, and perhaps others, to share their thoughts about this coference with each other and with the loved ones at home. Thus, this may become an English/Romanian conversation (?). Blessings and peace to all! Psalm 133
