Hi from Busan!
Our official welcome to Pusan was some lovely Korean ladies waving CM2007 signs, followed by an Aussie singalong on our bus. The Aussie men love to sing much more than American men. THey have strong voices. It was great fun (probably even more fun if you're not jet lagged). I don't know if I'll have more time to write this week, but I'll try to if I have a chance!
So far we've seen people coming to CM07 from east asia, singapore, australia, jamaica, botswana, zimbabwe and of course Korea since arriving!

URGENT CM07 FLIGHT INFO REMINDER
Can you believe it? Just 10 more days and we will be together in Busan Korea celebrating the Lord's goodness and believing Him together for the campuses of the World!
However, in order for our Korean brothers and sisters to greet you, and get you to your housing assignment we desperately need to make sure that each participant's information is correct on the Online Registration System. This is a reminder that this information is due today!
The Flight Arrival and Departure information for each participant must be updated in the CM2007 Online Registration System by Wednesday June 20th. This information must include your final airport arrival destination in Korea (for example enter ICN for Seoul Incheon airport, or PUS for Pusan Gimhei airport). Arrival date, time, airline and flight number must all also be input. Korea CCC desperately needs this information immediately in order to prepare transportation to CM2007 for participants upon arrival.
NOTE: If this information is not provided or is incorrect, we can not guarantee transportation to the BEXCO conference site and you may be responsible for your own transport at your own expense.

following the leader
One of the Psalmists writes,
"Your path led through the sea,
your way through the mighty waters,
though your footprints were not seen.
You led your people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron." (Psalm 77:19-20)
He can lead us through those impossible places, because he can cause any ocean in our way to become dry land. We just have to trust him, and follow!

ON THE GLOBAL ROAD
He refers to me as Matt Blogalotos instead of Matt Mikalatos. It's a joke, see? We are making fun of each other's names.
Mr. Blogalo, er, I mean Bubalo is on the leadership team for CM07. Yes, he is one of the big, important people.
He has been blogging about his thoughts and experiences on his blog, the Global Road. He wrote me today and said that he's planning to write something about Korea pretty much every day from here up to the conference, so stop by and say hello. He's a friendly fellow. And he doesn't bite, except when he's eating.

It shows a lot of campuses around the world that are a priority for us to reach!
Not all of them, of course, but the map and the list are cool!
How to Find Me
3) Hire a ninja. Not only are ninja trained to quickly scan a crowd, they can do it quietly so that they don't disturb anyone who is paying attention to the conference. Of course, if you're like me you probably don't have the money to hire a ninja. But maybe the conference will make some complimentary ninja available for all of us to share.
That's all I've come up with so far. I'm sure you all have some better ideas. Feel free to share them here in the comments section. In the meantime, I'll be the guy in the cheese suit with the pet hawk, sitting next to the ninja.
Cool CM07 websites
A very cool list of how many people are coming and from which countries
The CM07 radio drive
Some of the seminars that will be offered
information about praying for CM07
Also, I think you should check out the discussion board. I didn't even know about this thing until tonight. So go discuss things. :)
