Enjoying summer in Mongolia :)

Before I went to America I did some things that I never posted here. The photos show some of the beauty and interest of summer in Mongolia. Kathy left early for California to help Kim get ready for the wedding. And I made the most of my time here in Ulaanbaatar :)

A hike north of the city ....
It's always great to go with friends on a hike outside of the city. The weather was a bit rainy when we began, but everyone wanted to go, so went. Great decision!

Great friends :)

Seung Eun, Jinny, Faith, Oko and Ebuuuuu!

David and Stephen and me

Attending my friend's military graduation ....
My friend Bayrt graduated from military school, so I went to the graduation and saw him and my friend Odko. Interesting to see the way things are done in Mongolia :) Congratulations to Bayrt!

A retreat in the countryside with our church .... 
Our church spent an overnight in the countryside outside the city. Kathy and I have been so blessed getting to know the people in the church and being more and more a part of things in it. What a great group of friends!! They love the Lord Jesus and have shown much love to us.
Some of my church friends :)

Last photos of Korea

Here are the last photos of the trip to Korea that Kathy and I took. These are of our time in Dae Jeon, Everland, Jeju Island and Mokpo to see friends. The photos show beautiful Korea from my perspective. The thing I couldn't capture was the heat and humidity of the day :) Hot!!

I am so glad we took the trip there after our time in the USA. Now we miss our friends there!!!
