I didn’t realize it then, but moving here really pushed me to rely on God. At the time, I didn’t have a saving faith. I read the Bible but didn’t know who Jesus was and didn’t have anyone to explain it to me—and only having a Korean Bible didn’t help either. My life consisted of either going to school or working with my dad, and there were no college prospects for me. I felt so alone and let down, and it was a really dark time. However, not having friends at school made me turn to church. And that’s where I met my peers, where I cried, where I found connection, but most importantly, where I learned about significance. The youth pastor, who spoke English, spent time with me and really contextualized the gospel for me. Slowly, I came to realize that God had a purpose for me. He wanted me to pursue Him and depend on Him. He wanted me to know that I am loved and cared for. (2/2)
