The Xftfc * LmJ • ■1 Cohf. met in Seoul at the same dime, and1 one day we had a jojft session for a few hours, with addresses from the. M'.E. bishops and several preachers. The bishops stretched out the figure of a marriage in describing the union of the two Methodisms. It was one of the new style, not arranged by the parents, but a n&tural love match between the couple. Who was bride and who the groom they could not say. Then our Choon Chun presiding elder made a 'speech which swept the Conf., and far surpassed the bishops. He enforced the thbught that we were not two bodies: uniting in marriage, but onelbody under Christ the He&d. The bishopsactried to be humorous; the P.E. was serious, Scriptural, and gripping, and marked the climax of the session. church eight; fourteen M.E. service in our oE.•bishops had Sunday morning that night five The morning service church. I was in ::" :| in the absence of our bishop'Kern, the to ordain the deacons and elders of both churches, we had thirteen deacons and the M.E Sou. Meth. elders were ordained and was in the M.E.,. church; the evening the group of deacons ordained. That morning I rose at' four and went over to the Setninary to join the students and some of the preachers who were staying there in their weekly praver meeting. vi Yong Do, the John Wesley"of Korea , led +he Service,! *nd touched the deep things, especially when he prayed. He ha^ marvellous power in prayer, very simple and unaffected and extremely earnest, oftenlfborde^ing on to tears. What a Contrast to the Bishop's sermon that morning, utterly powerless and not even anything striking from an oratorical standpoint. ^^Sunday night I gave a guitar solo.fS..' f| f I have Pak moksa and Sin moksa of the two Seoul country circuits, Sin moksa who lived in this house last year and went to Chulwon, and No moksa of the big Choon Chun church here. Kim voung Whan couldtnot come. They eat breakfast and supper here. Kim Won Kyung of Koo Am Ni came in for two days. At noon I have invited other friends for lunch, ii ^ong Do, vi Ho^ Bin of Wonsan, Bro. Swinney*s former teacher, Yu Han Ik the former mayor of Wonfcan and. king's jester, the two superannuates, ^nd the cla-ss' that entered the Conference on trial with me, the preacher in whose circuit I traveled' with Bro. Brannon last year, and the preacher from another place I visited last year. The rest of this week during the Preachers1 Institute, Yi Ho Bin Is going to stay with me too. I am very happy to have these preachers With me; I tell them it is a thank offering for having such a house as this to live in. If I lived |in a foreign house I could not do this. These poor preachers have a hard enough struggle without having to pay a lot of board during Conference. If I had the money, I would build a large Korean house' and have a good share of the preachers in every year. Yi vong Do asked me to eat with him at a restaurant" one^.day, and several of us who entered the Conference together ate together another time at a restaurant. A great friendship has developed;'between vi vong Do and me. He wants to go to America next year if the way opens up, and I was wondering if I could send him to you for an introduction to ways and manners in America, if it should prove advisable and convenient. He thirty and would be a son to you in my place. You would have to do . nothing extra, forhyour poorest.would be. better th&n he ever saw. /** iLjA*yn is A
