The past two weeks in our household have been bonkers. At church we are getting ready for Christmas, Advent, choir, kids handbell practices, Sunday School lesson making, event planning, and everything that the kids have to do with school. I can totally say that it’s a ton of work, a lot of restlessness, but also all so very exciting! I am so thankful to be this busy! Well on most days, hehe! But another huge change in our household is also the fact that my wife, Eunkyung Kim has finally graduated!
Eunkyung graduated in the BSN program at Mount Aloysius. She ended up graduating Cum Laude! What an honor! All that hard work, studying, maintaining home life, being a mother, and our church organist, and she succeeded and done well in her studies.
I am so super proud of her, and super proud of the kids as well. Honestly, they did such a good job understanding that Mommy did not have much time with them for the past 17 months. At times she had to work in the hospital overnight, at times she had to spend all day and night to study, and the kids could have easily gotten frustrated, stressed, and put of a fit, but they stayed patient during this whole process! Their attitude really helped her not worry about them too much.
So thankful to God for such a wonderful opportunity and the success of a job well done! Very thankful to Ward Ave. Presbyterian Church for the scholarships every semester and thankful to Huntingdon Presbytery for financial assistance as well.
This coming Friday, she will be ceremoniously “pinned.” It’s kind of like getting ordained as a pastor. She is on her way to make the world a better place for all of us. This dream come true, this mission completed is all due to the countless of support from the church, the church members, our families, and the kindness of random people. All this is possible because God has provided each day, every moment to fulfill our needs.
Every challenge that came up was met with His amazing grace. I do fully believe that the people that God placed in our lives had an essential part in helping her to graduate and find success.
Thank you all for your support and prayers! It means everything to us! God bless you all!
Hey this is Rev. Brian Choi's random thought throughout my week. Most of this stuff, will probably be about family, church, fishing, music, movies, food, whatever I think of, hopefully it will have some sort of theological reflection (maybe).
