Seoul Stop-Over – Part 1

Our stop-over in Seoul was a late addition to the original Ubuntu journey.  Kathy and Susan were both born in Korea and immigrated to the United States long before I was born.

When we arrived, they were so excited to everything they could.  A few hours after we landed, we met with Irene who gave us a tour of Ewha Womans University.  Irene will be the hostess team leader for Ubuntu Korea 2013.  We learned the history and ongoing works of this wonderful United Methodist University.  We stood on the steps of Pfeiffer Hall, named for the benefactors….yes, the same Pfeiffers of Pfeiffer University in North Carolina.

At lunch, we met with long-term missionaries Dwight and Sunny Strawn – both retired and yet working full-time teaching English. We rode a city tour bus and walked to the top of mountain overlooking the city.  (More pictures will be posted after Bobbi, Kathy and I upload our memory cards from our other cameras.)

For a treat in the evening, we saw a Korean theatre production called Miso.  A beautiful production.

Ending the night with devotions, we made pla.s for the next day’s visit to the DMZ.
