Post by Don

Now that I am settle back into my life I really wanted to take the time once again to thank all the people who have been so supportive and given me strength and help during my ordeal. Perrysburg community and really people from all over NW Ohio and beyond have been sending me prayers and good wishes the entire time I was stuck in Korea. I wish I can thank each and every one of you personally. Perrysburg city councilman Haraz Ghanbari has stayed in constant contact with me and video chatted with me numerous times to give me encouragement and helped me get in contact with many people that helped me. Congressman Bob Latta and his office also stayed in constant contact with me and is still helping me with some legal paperwork that I am working on. SSG Dohyoung Cho who is stationed oh Camp Humphreys Korea gave me some very helpful advice as well as helped me with my legal paperwork in Korea. I also want to thank, Colonel Cameron Song Sellers, who reached out to me in Korea in friendship and invited my aunt, cousin, and me to dinner in Yongsan. Lynn Cottrell who set up a gofundme that really helped me stay afloat while going from hotel to hotel and having to eat out everynight in Korea, was a godsend. Brian Dugger, who helped me make sure my story was able to be told and stayed in contact with me with encouragement. Susan Bernard who helped out with our social marketing while I was gone. Seabrook Riddle who gave me a lot of encouragement and hope.Pastor Goo, who I met in Korea and helped me pray and helped me see that God does work in mysterious ways. My aunt Linda Dole and cousin Amanda who came to Korea to support me. And of course my sister Chi Kim Yi, brother-in-law Young Kowho really stepped up, and who I am so proud of for taking care of the restaurant while I was gone. My mom Sung Kim, who worked so hard to fill my void and who was probably more worried then I was about my situation. And of course my staff at Tea Tree Asian Bistro, who all did a fantastic job while I was gone. God, who showed me that I may not always get what I ask for, but that in faith I will always get what I need. I have so many more that I need to mention but that would literally take a book. Just know that I am forever grateful to each and everyone of you who have reached out to me and each and everyone of you who have prayed for me and wished me well. I humbly give my thanks^^ God really is great^^
