Our Students Wrote You a Christmas Letter!

Merry Christmas to all of our loved ones, family and our readers from our new home in Korea. I know it’s been awhile since we posted on the blog, but we’ve been busy embracing the Christmas season. The good news is that during this silence, we’ve got some great new stories to tell, including time at a local orphanage where we get to play Santa and bring lots of joy to some little kiddos that really need some more smiles in their lives.

My first order of business though, is not about us at all. In talking about Christmas with my students, they’ve expressed interest in communicating with all of you about what it’s like in Korea at Christmastime. To them, the Western world is full of intrigue and mystery. They work very hard for the chance to maybe, one day, talk with foreigners as fluent speakers of the English language.

So, two of my middle school students have been brave enough to extend Christmas greetings to all of you via blog posts. This is a really big deal for them, and it took them a  lot of time to do. If you have a minute to spare, please open this post by clicking on the “Read More” caption below and read their short messages so that they can see how many hits they got. Even better, write them a comment. It will make their week!

“Hello! I am glad to meet you.

November has ended and December is began these last few days.

“December,” I think of Christmas first.

So, I want to talk about the topic of “Christmas in Korea”.

Christmas… This day is on December 25th.

Jesus’ birthday…”
