Our son, Kyum, is starting his college life in the Engineering Science program at UofT (Class of 2027) this fall. Since our daughter, Sue, is going back to Rhodes for her junior year next Sunday, we had family time after church to celebrate Kyum for beginning a new chapter of his life. We took a short tour of University of Toronto campus (St. George) and enjoyed Japanese ramen dinner. It was a peaceful evening, and Lynn and I thanked God for blessing us with our beautiful children, Sue, and Kyum. I cannot even begin to describe how much joy they have brought to our lives. Lynn and I have shed so many tears, however, because of Kyum’s struggles with faith in God. Our prayers for him will continue until God will give him the precious gift of faith (Ephesians 2:8).
τῇ γὰρ χάριτί ἐστε σεσῳσμένοι διὰ πίστεως· καὶ τοῦτο οὐκ ἐξ ὑμῶν, θεοῦ τὸ δῶρον
For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God (Ephesians 2:8)
