I came to Seattle with my husband. Seattle is so beautiful.  I like it here. Also, I love the people here.  They are so helpful and warmhearted.  I wish I can come back in several years.

I want to stay in contact with Gary and Charlene, they are so nice persons! I really appreciated them for picking me up at the airport and give us a one week homestay when I arrived in Seattle.  He is really helpful in better understanding American customs and the way of things.  I will stay in contact and talk with them.

The VSA Visiting Scholars Association program is a home-away-from-home.  It makes me feel like staying at home.  Thank you for Gary and Charlene help to me.  I will go back to my home, but I will miss you - my Seattle best friends.  At the same time I had a chance to study bible.  He helps me have a further knowledge about American society.  Thanks you very much.

"We had a wonderful time in Seattle and what made the one year we were there much more enjoyable was the thoughtful and understanding consideration of you all. You were there as a wonderful social net which helped us with almost everything we needed. Social gatherings, networking even finding furniture. Even when we were on our way back to our home country you made the transition for us so much easier with offering us a place to stay, and even giving us a ride to the airport, we can never thank you enough. God bless you all."

Dear Gary:
"It was just like a few weeks ago when I first met you at the Parrington Hall last year, and now I am leaving Seattle after completion of the Fellowship Program. Throughout our meetings, I learned more about America, and you provided me with new window to understand American life. Especially, my family enjoyed the visit to your house from dinner to conversation to seeing the house inside and out to nice neighborhood. They had a real opportunity to see and experience American ’s life. In the meantime, please understand that I could not go to the Wednesday meetings because of my Wednesday evening classes.

It was really lucky for me to meet you here in Seattle; through your association, I met good people, and they made my stay in the United States more meaningful personally as well as professionally. Therefore, I am sure that what I learned and experienced with your help will be building blocks for my personal and professional development. Please send my best regards to your family, and call me when you come to Korea. Once again, I sincerely appreciate the opportunity you offered me and your cooperation and hope to see you again.
