Greetings from Costa Rica on Thursday morning. I pray that God has kept you well for the past 3 days. I wrote "3 days" but I feel like it’s been 10 days.

Pastor Han Myung Hoon, who preached this morning, shared three things that he observed as a first timer attending KUMC Missions Conference. One of those observations was that "Not knowing why, everyone seems very excited." Actually, the circumstances have not been so exciting. The chairperson at the last minute could not come,  the secretary, due to travel permit issues,  could not come on the first day causing program delays, the meeting rooms had to be changed and announced every time due to mix up in reservations, the Pastor School which was scheduled and confirmed in advance to be on Wednesday was bluntly changed to Thursday with a short verbal notice on Tuesday night causing much chaos in room arrangements, and the bus drivers, due to confusion in communications,  took the teams to wrong places of ministry for two consecutive days. There have been just  too  many "problems" to mention them all. In fact, during the past conferences there had been some people who would get frustrated and complain to the conference staff, but this time, everyone is excited and eagerly participating. Every participant is happy about the littlest things, continues to reply with “Amen”, even laughs at jokes that are not funny, and is warmly fellowshipping with strangers.

As I was trying to figure out why, I remembered the testimony of Missionary Andrew Lee. Missionary talked about when he was getting an orientation before his skydiving experience. Because his life depended on it, he tried to pay attention not wanting to miss a word but was worried that he could not remember all the instructions. But the instructor who was skydiving with him told him, "Even if you forget everything, just remember two things - trust me and relax".

The reason for the excitement at this mission conference was not the lack of problems, but everyone’s trust in God - no one focused on the problems but everyone relaxed. And when we are at peace, we saw that the people around us were at peace as well . If we concentrate on the problems, we will first become unhappy ourselves, get to complain unintentionally, and consequently cause people around us  unhappy. Dearly beloved, I pray that we would be able to lift our eyes up from our problems to God who is saying "Trust me",  experience true peace, and be an ambassador of God's peace to those around us. I will do my utmost to help you do that.
