Finding Something Valuable

July 28, 2008

        I just came back from a church retreat. Before this experience, I had trouble communicating with my peers at church because of my limited Korean speaking. I was just hoping that I can just get through these next three days and come home. To make things worse, the schedule for the retreat was to have a rafting trip on the last day. That was the only thing I was actually looking forward to but the rain was pouring so instead, the alternate plan was to go to the ATV(4 wheel automobile) field. However, the weather condition became worse so that even got cancelled. So basically, the retreat was filled with bible studies, worship, and boredom. On Saturday, we were getting ready to go home. However, ironically, I was not ready to go home. Even though I was bored ot of my mind and even though I was limited in my speaking, I got to meet and know other people better and I felt a connection with them and I didn’t want it to end. This experience was extremely beneficial to me because I got to meet new people and that one can always find something valuable, even out of a bum experience.
