27th World's Convention with the Eyes of a Teenager

Traveling to South Korea was my first time stepping foot out of the USA. After waiting for what felt like forever, we flew to Seoul. When we landed, we went to our hotel and then right to dinner. Koreans always have appetizers on the table when we went to restaurants. They also had a mini stove contraption in the middle of the table. Food was brought to us and we cooked it ourselves! With every meal there was a small bowel of white rice. Some of us ate rice three meals a day. Sometimes I missed food from home, but it was good to experience how another culture lives. We toured for a few days before heading to the World CE convention. Some interesting things we visited were the Demilitarization Zone (DMZ), the Seoul Tower, and the Korean War Memorial. It was a learning experience for everyone, and it was really fun to see the difference between America and Korea. I didn’t realize how in the US we get to see people from many different cultures, but in other parts of the world this is not always what they experience. At the CE convention we met people from many different countries. There were around 3000 people in attendance. This was mostly Koreans but also people from India, Mexico, Peru, Nepal, American Samoa, Russia, Holland, Germany, Romania, Hungary, Nigeria, and Australia. God was certainly at work during this convention and I was blessed to be a part of it. It was amazing to hear how God is working in so many lands with so many different people groups.
