During my early years in Korea, I was told not to drink the water from the tap. I decided to play it safe. When I lived in the education building at my church, I spent months walking out my apartment door to the water dispenser in the hall whenever I needed a drink or had a pot to fill. One day I walked out and the jug was missing. No one else was supposed to be Continue reading “Help, God! I’m Being Oppressed!”
