No need to say Goodbye

As like every volunteers who were here,
It’s time for me to move on to my real life in Korea.
St.Rhadagunds, How beautiful place !
I can tell everybody that
my life in here would be the most important in my twenties.

I’ll miss the time we shared together,
especially summer picnics !

And evey moment we shared nice meals together.
I’ll miss delicious English food all the time
that our chef ‘Charlie’ made !

My happiest time was waiting for a dessert every evening 🙂

I could meet so many nice people in here,
not only volunteers but also guests
from whole around the world !

And don’t forget the church group !
It was such a precious community God gave me.

Each moment of worship was wonderful.
Thank God, he gave me a chance to join in the worship group
to praise him all the time.

And participate in an Easter musical choir.
It was the most glorious moment.

And every day working with my friends in here.
Sometimes it’s quite hard and busy, but I really enjoyed.
Especially in summer family holiday week with more than 70 guests !
I could feel real teamwork and harmony between us.

Except Gardening  …. I think once in a month is enough 🙂

Oh, don’t forget the moment me and Mila’s baptism !
This place made me to grow up as a real Christian.

Lucky Oscar, Now you can sleep in my bed all day long 🙂

Thank you for blessing my 10 months in here.
And I hope we could meet each other again !
I love all of you that I’ve met in St.Rhads.

Especially, my English Mom & Dad !
I promise to come back here again.

God bless you all,
including our Blog visiters !

With love, Boyoon Jang , 2011 St.Rhads Blog editor

Lazarus’s vision

Have you ever heard about ‘TYRO Africa’ ?
If not, you have to see this posting right now !

‘TYRO’ means, The Youth Rescue Out Reach.
Tyro Africa is a group commited young people
who live, study and work in and through out Uganda.

Tyro’s vision is to Form a society
in which youth discover their full potential
and turn their challenges into opportunities
and empower the youth who may be marginalized
to succeed in life by living wisely
despite of what may appear to growing insecurities.

Are you curious about why I’m talking about it ?
One of our volunteer, Lazarus is a leader of this Organization
and he’s working as a teacher in Uganda as well.

Today, he had an opportunity to introduce us about this NGO
and it was really interesting and informative time.
He told us about to build a school for
orphans, poor and homeless children
to lead them with Christ-centred education.
In addition, He showed us data of HIV/AIDS youth rate
and explained how much education system is needed in Uganda.

Tyro needs your help and participation in so many ways.
Not only donation but also Volunteers !
How beautiful work for God’s glory !

You can get more information from here.
We’re waiting for your contact 🙂

Busy Bee trip

The 2011 Christmas is just infront of us !
In St.Rhads, we have a small event called ‘Secret Santa’.
Everybody picked up a small piece of paper
written another volunteer’s name,
and prepare a small gift for him or her.
To participate in this event ?!
We need to do Christmas shopping !

Annie, Noemi, Alessandra went together with me,
and don’t forget Geraldine ! She planned this trip for us.

It was so beautiful in side as you see !
Everything is deocrated with Christmas stuffs
and made us feel like being in a fantastic wonderland.

We’re quite busy to take a picture and look around the shop,
‘Busy Bee’.

And don’t forget this amazing experience !
At the Garden centre, three pretty owls are waiting for us
to take a picture together.
With a small donation,
We could make beautiful experience never gonna forget.

After shopping, we had a cup of tea with piece of cake.
I loved my chocolate cake with nuts !

And finished our journey at Tesco,
I’m so happy that we could have a chance to go out together.
Thank you for this opportunity, Geraldine
&
Just 17 days left for Christmas party in St.Rhads !
How exciting 🙂

Favorite Bible verses

Today, I asked everyone’s favorite Bible verses,
and they wrote down without any hesitation.
Even some of them memorized all of the long passages !

Jane’s favorite is from Psalm 46 verse 10.
‘Be still and know that  I am God;
I will exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth.’

When I first asked Andrew’s favorite,
He couldn’t decide between so many verses he loves.
But at last he choose from Ephesians chapter 6 verse 10 – 13.
‘Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.
Put on the full armor of God
so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood,
but against the rulers, against the authorities,
against the powers of this dark world
and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
Therefore put on the full armor of God,
so that when the day of evil comes,
you may be able to stand your ground,
and after you have done everything, to stand.’

Lazarus choose two verses both from John.
John chapter 3 verse 3 says,
‘In reply Jesus declared,
“I tell you the truth,
no one can see the kingdom of God
unless he is born again.’
And Chapter 14 verse 6 says,
‘Jesus answered,
“I am the way and the truth and the life.
No one comes to the Father except through me.’

Andreza’s favorite is from 1 Corinthians chapter 2, verse 9.
‘No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived
what God has prepared for those who love him.’

Alessandra choose from John chapter 3 verse 16.
It says, ‘For God so loved the world that
he gave his one and only son,
that whoever believes in him shall not perish
but have eternal life.’

Ilona’s choice was from Luke chapter 17.
Verse 20 – 21 says, ‘Once, having been asked by the Pharisees
When the kingdom of God would come,
Jesus replied, “The kingdom of God does not come
with your careful observation,
nor will people say, ‘Here it is,’ or
‘There it is,’ because the kingdom of God is within you.’

Sue’s favorite is from Psalm 23, verse 1 – 3.
‘The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my soul.
He guids me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.’

St.Rhads pet, Oscar

Hello, my name is Oscar, just call me Oskii.
I live in St.Rhadagunds garden and
quite often sleep in Ilona’s room or sun lounge.
I love to stay in rosemary bush nearby sunlounge
and take a sunbath in the garden.

But these days, it’s getting cold, sometimes
I enjoy to stay nearby fireplace like you !

Or Annie’s room at Boyoon’s bed …
I love to sleep at there, it’s so cozy !

shhhhh , be quite, I’m afraid others to see.

I’m 16 years old and my favorite food is gravy.
But I couldn’t get so many chance to have it
because people have it all … so greedy !
And they trained me to eat instant cat food … it’s not fresh.
I’m eating it not because it’s delicious,
but because i’m hungry !

I’m quite famous in here, everybody likes me !
Even Ilona kiss me every day and night.
But you know what ?
It’s quite tired to be famous,
They don’t leave me alone !
It makes me to become really sensitive.

Some people said I’m spoiled,
but they have to remember that I’m not spoiled.
Just I’m a superstar and royal cat, you got it ?

So if you see me knocking on diningroom door,
You should open it and lead me to Ilona’s room.
And if you have any gravy left over,
please don’t throw it away.
 Leave it for your special cat.
And then we could be good friends.

Or… you could be my feeder ?
