30. – 34. NY Hotdog & Coffee, Waffle & Caffe, Cupcake & Coffee, Cafe DOU, Ruban Coffeebible (Busan, Gimhae)

Sometimes, coffee is just not enough.

Some prospective business owners recognize this and decide to add something else to the mix, in hopes of attracting a wider audience, whether that’s hot dogs, cupcakes, or the Lord above.

Dear Daddy,

Quiapo

At the very heart of the city of Manila, you will find Quaipo district, where the famous Quiapo Church stands.


God Is Unique

If Jesus was not an active political leader (like the so-called Zealots); if he desired no social revolution; if he did not seek a martyr’s death as proof of his message; if he led the life of a believer, awaiting God’s action but making no attempt to force God’s hand; if he was far from any desire for self-aggrandizement, and his whole life was an act of obedience to God’s will, his conduct becomes hard to understand. For by violence (cleansing of the Temple, creation of a movement among the people) he provoked violence against himself. What he suffered was the consequence of his act. In all this there is a flavor of militancy which is also unmistakable in other manifestations of his personality.


Salad Bar Confucianism

When a lot of foreigners first step off the boat here in Korea, they probably think two things—

1) What’s that smell?, and
2) What’s up with these people? They’re so nice / strange / rude / different!

Many will stay for a few days, a few months, possibly even a year, and may never get around to answering either of these questions. The answer to the first probably has to do with an overloaded sewage system trying and failing to deal with fifty million people eating fifty million pounds of fermented cabbage and soybeans every day; the answer to the second (relating to the reason why so many people eat so much fermented food) is still too elusive for me, and I’ve lived here for three years.


GIFT Ministry in Dongnae (now with free Korean classes)

Every day we face choices, new tasks, new challenges, new obstacles, sometimes new jobs, new relationships, and for many of you a new or different life in a new country and culture different from where you grew up. It helps to have a community around you to help you adjust and learn to adapt quickly, see the sites,  share your experiences and ideas with and to just hang out and relax together. GIFT Ministry (website: http://tinyurl.com/lifeisagift) is a friendly community trying to help English speakers in Busan make the most of life here.

One new program we are offering is free Korean classes at 2pm on Saturdays for beginners.  These can help make navigating life in Korea quite a bit easier, more efficient and we have an experienced, very kind and helpful Korean teacher who speaks excellent English leading them! Come join and "level up" your Korean :).


GIFT Ministry

Hi,
Every day we face choices, new tasks, new challenges, new obstacles, sometimes new jobs, new relationships, and for many of you a new or different life in a new country and culture different from where you grew up. Sometimes we need help in adjusting and making sense of things. At GIFT Ministries every Saturday at 10:30am in Dongnae (see the maps below and go to the blue dot in the maps), you’ll find a place where you can connect with other foreigners (and very helpful Koreans) with up to 17 years experience living in Korea who have experienced what you’re going through and know many of the ins and outs of getting adjusted and creating a memorable and enjoyable experience (we also have many useful ideas on teaching effectively, finding jobs, legal issues, etc.). We like to get away from the daily grind and refresh and re-energize ourselves with:
