I spent five exciting days in Seoul.
But before I share my experiences in the land of Kimchi, K-pop and everything Hallyu, let me first share an interesting conversation I heard from two Caucasian tourists who crossed the street ahead of Hannah and I on our first day, on our way to the guesthouse.
“This is my belief, that there is actually no God who takes care of every little thing here on earth,” the tall Caucasian man spoke in full conviction as they walked through the pedestrian lane.
I felt as though a strong kick jostled me out of sleep. I felt sad for him. Nevertheless, I pray for him to experience and enjoy the goodness of God in his life.
I remember a famous atheist whose life took a complete turnaround when he begun recognizing God and what He can do in our lives.
Why did I need to hear that on my first day in Seoul?
I do not have an answer.
I just know that it made my faith stronger.
Yes, God is everywhere, even in my trip to Seoul.
