Fall 2017

Jeju Fellowship
We recently had the opportunity to host the transfer students from WOL South Korea and WOL Uganda in our
apartment. WOL South Korea is located on the island of Jeju, and WOL Uganda is outside of Entebbe. Both schools
offer a first year program, so these are students who came to New York in order to complete their second year of Bible
Institute training. Last year Paul taught on both campuses. Jill and Caroline were able to accompany Paul on his trip to
Jeju, so it was great to be able to reconnect with these students, encourage them about the year ahead, and let them
know that we are available to them. Of course, they all loved hanging out
with Caroline. She was the main attraction!

Caroline
Caroline is a happy, healthy 20 month old toddler. She is trying so hard to
talk. Unfortunately, her vocabulary can’t keep up with her lips! So far she
can say chip, cracker, Momma (both Mom and Dad are “momma”), arf –arf,
ball, water, more (relating to food usually), and some other words that only
Mommy knows how to translate. Some of her favorite activities include
trying on her shoes, climbing stairs, helping Mommy fold the laundry, and
watching the birds outside. Favorite foods include strawberries, crackers,
chicken, and pizza.

New Ministry Opportunity for Jill
It has been a difficult period of transition for Jill, but she is optimistic about the year ahead. She has been praying that
God would give her more opportunities to minister, and to build relationships. Just recently she was asked by our
church to help with the toddler program on Sunday nights. What an answer to prayer! She is excited to serve and
encourage these little ones in the Lord. She also looks forward to hosting guest lecturers and students in our home
weekly.
