Brent went to Korea February 1-8 as part of the Doctor of Ministry program of Asbury Theological Seminary’s Beeson Scholarship. It was a fascinating experience. I saw the largest Methodist church in the world with 25000 attendees, and also the Yoido church, the largest in the world. We were hosted so graciously by the Kwanglim Methodist church.

On Saturday, December 5, Kim and I went to the provincial town of Jala-Jala, Rizal, about an hour outside of Manila where a new Faith Fellowship church was started about a year ago.

Our power just came back on (10:15 p.m. Monday night, Manila time) so I am writing this as soon as I can in case it goes off again. It had come back on early this morning and was on for about 6 hours, then went off again until now. Just wanted to let you know that we are fine and have everything we need.
