Another highlight of the trip was the interview process that Deb put some of the TKD sportsmen through. The interview process consisted of us inviting some of the guys over to hang out at our house. Sometimes dinner or pizza was served, other times they just hung out.
During the “interview” process, Deb asked them questions about their walk with the Lord, their future plans, and what they are looking for in a spouse. This was both an interactive time and a teaching time. Some of the young men looked forward to their time in the “hot seat”.
I got to see Deb minister to the youth, offering encouragement and just loving them through conversation. This is a gift that she has: connecting with young people and being open to discuss any subject with them.
This group of young men will miss us dearly, and we will miss them also. They painted a message to us in front of the house, on the street, in spray paint. They used chalk the first time, and then came back with spray paint. The message said something to the effect of “Team from USA, we love you and will miss you”.
