following my parents footsteps

My dad was adopted when he was 11 from Korea to an American family. He then went back to Korea on his mission in the Korea Seoul West Mission back in 1987-1989. He extended his mission 5 weeks to look for his parents. In those last three weeks, he met my mom. My mom was born and raised in Korea and had just started her mission in the Korea Seoul West Mission. My dad saw something special in my mom and wrote her for the rest of her mission. Soon after she returned home, my dad went and visited her. He came back to America with a wife in three months time. Without the gospel and the opportunity to serve missions, I would not be here today. I am so grateful to be serving in the same mission which is now called the Korea Seoul South Mission. I WILL find people my parents taught. I can't wait to follow my parents footsteps and serve the Lord in KOREA.

  1. I can't wait to hear all about your experiences in Korea. My mother is Korean and came to the states in 1972. She has only been back once in 1980 to visit and brought her two daughters with her. We were able to stay for our three months of summer vacation and meet all of her family there. She has since lost touch with all of them. Now, almost 35 years later, my son is serving in the Seoul South Mission!!! I cherish every letter he writes and can't wait for him to be able to teach me about my heritage. Good luck to you, Sister Johnson!!!
