Young Adventist Teenagers start their Pacific Ocean Crossing Voyage
July 18, 2013

Three Adventist teenagers, along with their guides are crossing the Pacific by boat. They are Mr. YeonBong Pyo and his son, PyoHyeon, his nephew, JeongHyun, Mr. SeungYoon Lee and his son, HoGeon Lee. After long preparation, they finally began their long voyage.

The expedition left Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA, on May 19, 2013. Their plan is to pass through the Bahamas, Jamaica, the Panama Canal, Ecuador, Galapagos, Tahiti, Samoa, Fiji, New Caledonia, North Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan, Dokdo and Busan, Korea, taking 14 months. They will then finally arrive home on Jeju Island.

Mrs. Pyo said, “Actually I am very worried to send my husband and son, but this is not an everyday chance. I believe that my son will learn how to overcome difficulties by himself. I hope that they would read many books, meet many different people, and make their own dream during the travel.”

Mr. Pyo gives the teenagers missions to accomplish in every place they stop. In the Bahamas, they got email addresses from three people that they met. They talked with foreign people in fluent English and accomplished the mission. They will continue to make friends in the following stops and experience various things.
