NOTE FROM THE WASMUND FAMILY
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ at COS:
Easter season greetings to you (He is still risen!) in the name of this same Lord, Jesus. We hope this note finds the special COS community well.
Every month we are reminded of the faithful generosity of you as individuals and as a community. We are so grateful that you support us, encourage us, and partner in this overseas ministry. We truly and sincerely wish to thank you for remembering us in so many ways (including the lovely cards we regularly receive!). Our only regret is that, since we were just in the U.S. last summer, we are not scheduled to be stateside in 2019, where we could thank you personally.
May is one of the finest months in Korea, weather-wise. The blooms have faded but we are enjoying mild weather and clear skies. Lily, who started a new school in the fall of 2018, is about to finish this first year and is looking forward to her confirmation in early June. It has been a pleasure to teach her this year and the whole family has encouraged her as she prepares. Olivia misses her big sister at the elementary school and still must wait one more year to join her. Even so, she enjoys the challenges of school and has been asked by the teacher to fill a leadership role. Most of the girls’ classmates are non-believers so we strive for ways to be witnesses to them.
Dee Dee has been increasing her involvement in a program that provides educational opportunities for Korean orphans, a much neglected area in this society. As a family we also have plenty of opportuni-ties for service at our local congregation.
This last year has given me new challenges and joys in the work of supporting our mission teams at English centers and local schools. God is faithful and we trust He will use us all—whether serving here or East Tennessee—for His kingdom work.
Again, we wish to thank you for your recent gifts of support and encouragement. We are so grateful for our special relationship with you and always look forward to being with you when in America.
Matt, for the family
