Meeting the Pastor at Dongsan Church in Ansan

When my Dad was in town, we stopped by Dongsan Church, the largest church in Ansan. My friend, Jinho, used to work there and got us about five minutes with the pastor in his study after the service.

The paster always has a smile when he sees me and was his usual extremely friendly self when we dropped by. But apparently he didn't get a full explanation of who we were before we stepped into the room, so after a couple niceties, he asked me, "So, who is this?" pointing at my Dad. When I said, "It's my Dad!", we all burst out laughing, at which moment Jinho snapped the top photo.

The photo at the bottom was taken from the second or third floor of the church looking north, with Nojeok Hill showing in the distance.
