of July party, last week, I felt like God spoke to me to meet with a young man
named Justin. He doesn't come to our group regularly, but was there that day.
I sat with him for some time during the barbecue and chatted. This past week I
contacted him to see if he wanted to meet for lunch. He said, "Yes." We met on
Thursday. He wanted to know what was on my mind. I said, "Nothing. I just felt
like God wanted me to spend some time with you." He was adopted from South
Korea by a white couple as an infant. His parents divorced when he was
only five. He has been a part of Bethel Church his whole life. He seems to have
insecurities and/or challenges that I am guessing has to do with his broken
family. Nothing dramatic happened during our visit, but he did share a few things
from his heart and I ended by praying with him. He has been trying to contact
his birth mom in Korea, but has had no response yet. I will see if the Lord does
something more with this relationship.
