Day 6: Road Trip

Hello family and friends of the gospel choir community!

We are halfway through our trip and have already experienced so much! It has been amazing to see God working through this trip.

Today we woke up bright and early for a 5 hour road trip to Handong University where we would have a concert later that evening. Most of the driving consisted of sleeping and admiring the mountains that surrounded us.  

On our way, we stopped at a village called Hahoe. This is a traditional village from the Joseon Dynasty where we were able to see the architecture and traditions of a one-clan village of that time.  The town has been preserved over the years and still has people living in it. The people of the village had a strong respect for the nature around them. They made their houses out of the natural materials around them so that when the houses were deserted they would eventually return back to how the land was.


Once we arrived at the beautiful campus of Handong University we had a short rehearsal and then were released for dinner.  The university had graciously provided an incredible buffet of Korean food. 

Next came our concert at the university.  This was a truly memorable event and the presence of God filled the room as the crowd worshipped along with us.

We were so blessed by the hospitality of the students and administration of Handong.  They even had a reception after the concert for a chance to fellowship with those who had come to worship with us.  We met some new friends and were honored when the president of Handong spoke some kind words to close the night.

After a long day we headed near the shore where we would be staying for the night.

Thank you all for your continued prayers and support and for tuning into our blog page once again!
