The Chun’s Update – Birthday Revelation

May 2015

First of all, we just want to say that WE MISS YOU ALL! Everything is going great here, but Sharon and I wanted to express our gratitude for all of our friends all around the world. Thank you for being amazing friends!

Victor (Turning 40!!): I knew in the back of my mind that I would be spending my 40th birthday here in Kansas City away from my closest friends and family. I’m not one to really care about birthdays anyways (I lost track after my mid-thirties haha), but 40 is definitely one of the those milestone numbers and as 40 quickly approaches I’ve been in reflective mode… I have way too many thoughts about this, so I’ll just share one of the things that I’ve been thinking about.

I realize that in my 40 years of life and 10 years as a follower of Jesus, I’ve only barely scratched the surface of knowing God. Not only that, I’ve barely scratched the surface of knowing what He thinks about me! Let me explain: Being a father has given me a little bit of insight into God’s heart and what it means that God interacts with us as our Father. When I look at Shiloh and think about all the wonderful thoughts that I have for her and how I love to tell her my thoughts and dreams for her (although she doesn’t understand fully yet!) I think of the verses in Psalm 139 when Kind David says to God:

How precious are your thoughts about me, O God.

They cannot be numbered!

I can’t even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand…

I can’t fully wrap my brain around the fact that just as I have all these amazing thoughts and hopes and dreams for Shiloh, God the creator of the universe has millions and billions of precious thoughts about little ol’ me. That blows my mind!! I’ve been realizing that I can’t go on with work, ministry, raising a baby, being a husband, and everything else without knowing His thoughts about me. Even Jesus had to hear before his ministry started that He was God’s beloved son with whom He was pleased. So, my prayer in this 40th year is that I know more of God’s innumerable thoughts for me. Just as a child need’s to hear what her parents think about her, so do we need to hear our Father’s thoughts about us. I pray also for you that this year will be a year of knowing more of our Father’s many precious thoughts for you!

Sharon: It’s been 2 months now since we’ve settled here in KC. The first 2 months has been busy with settling in and getting logistics done. Now that things are pretty much set up, we’ve been able to now settle our hearts and reflect/process our time in Korea and now our time here. From the moment we decided to become missionaries, and soon after having Shiloh and preparing to move, it wasn’t the easiest. It was scary at times, but through it all, we experienced so much of his grace, provision, and goodness. Whenever we say yes to Jesus, he always takes care of the rest. Through the good and the bad, we want to have a heart that solely seeks his beauty and love.

Shiloh: Well, I am 6 months now! I had a checkup and doctor said I am healthy 🙂 I got shots but handled it like a big girl. Mommy gave me solids! I ate avocados and I really like eating big people food 🙂 I am starting to crawl just a little, moving in circles and pushing forward! I have many aunties and uncles who show me so much love. I am a blessed little girl 🙂 Bye!

Thinking about you all,

The Chuns
