People Are Interesting: Young

Today's interesting person is my dear, dear, wonderful terrific, life-changing friend, Young Sik. He is pictured here with his lovely wife, Yoojin, and son Eunbhin. Young and I met about 5 years ago at seminary. I was his English language tutor, but truly truly truly he has taught me so much more than I could ever teach him! These 3 beautiful people have taught me SO much about friendship, faith, loyalty, love, learning, determination, and comittment. I love them. When I was on my internship year in southern Illinois, they came ALL the way to Marion to visit me for a few days. I have been so blessed by this family. Here's my interview with Young. Thanks Young!
(Check out his final answer!?!?!? Can you believe there's a movie called "A Brand New Life"?!?!?!? I have to see this film. I am constantly using the phrase "Brand New Life"!)
