I Will Sing Praise To Thee Oh Lord

They were from Buena Park Community Church and were called the Day Of Rejoicing Choir.   They were looking for someone who could teach them Korean songs.  I knew a few songs from when Jerry and I went to get our Baby Grace.  I was so wrapped up in Korea , and the three girls that were there waiting for time to come to America.  I called the Church there in Buena Park, and talked to the Pastor.  I told him I knew some Korean songs in Korean, and he was delighted.  I made arrangements to meet with them a week later for choir practice. I so loved the Korean language and songs that I bought a couple tapes while we were there.  The week before going to that practice I listened to those tapes over and over and phonetically wrote the words to the songs and copied them off for the choir members.  I taught the songs I knew, and ones I didn’t know in Korean such as , (I Would Rather Have Jesus)  (Amazing Grace) ( Blessed Be The Name)  and several others.  The choir sang them beautifully as they read from my hand written phonetic words.  All went well and it turned out that two members couldn’t travel to Korea so they asked me to go with them.  There was one more spot so I asked my friend and also someone who loved Korea to go with me.  She played the viola and brought it to play at the concerts the choir was scheduled for.  We arrived at LAX to go to Korea and Korean Airlines was not going to allow the instruments the Choir had, go with them.  They had a Band that was going as well.  The choir decided to sing at Korean Airlines so that the Lord would touch the officials hearts.  They started singing and a crowd gathered there.  Fear gripped me as I suddenly had the horrible thought that their Korean might be wrong and that it would make matters worse.  The Choir sang on in Korean and many Koreans were watching so I carefully went to a Korean Man and asked him what language they were singing in.  To my delight and relief he said they are singing Korean, and they are very good.  Soon after the airline agreed to let them load the instruments and speakers.  Away I went on the wings of songs to the Lord in Korean.  Off to visit my daughters to be.   I was taken back to that time as we sang there in the park. Korean Mom prayed, and the whole day was all together wonderful.

My desire is to share my photography, to honor the Lord, and send out His word to all who might read. My photo's will include a scripture,and I write a devotional for each entry. The very least that I can do for our precious Lord Jesus. I am a wife to Jerry, my wonderful husband. We have 5 children, and 7 granchildren.
