Pastor's Letter
October 16, 2015
Dear Friends,
   This Monday, I will join 29 other Methodist pastors from the Virginia Conference, along with Bishop Cho, for a pilgrimage to South Korea. This the 4th pilgrimage Bishop Cho has led and I am honored to go. While there, we will reflect on the seeds that were planted 130 years ago by Methodist missionaries from America and how those seeds were watered and nurtured, and grew to bear the fruit of a vibrant, faithful church. We will visit various Korean Methodist churches, hear their stories, their struggles and experience their outreach and mission ministries.
   Every morning we will be gently wakened at 4:30am in order to participate in an hour long prayer service beginning at 5:00am. I am looking forward to a deepening experience of fervent, faithful prayer. It will also be a joy to get to know other pastors from various parts of the Virginia conference as we journey together. Please pray for safe travel and renewal.  
   I look forward to worshiping with you this Sunday. Please continue to pray for Buckhall UMC as we seek to grow in our love for Jesus Christ and in sharing that love with others.
Yours in Christ,
Pastor Linda
