You're not from around here, are you?

This past Sunday evening I had the privilege of speaking at a church on the other side of Lima. It was an exciting visit. The building was packed and almost everyone in attendance was young. The pastor wanted me to come, as a young missionary, and speak on marriage to the many young couples in his congregation. As I came in the door I was greeted warmly. The service went well and the people were very attentive to the message. Following the service I was humored by the comments I heard from two different people: "We thought you were Korean, our pastor told us a foreign missionary name John Poe was coming. With a name like that we thought you must certainly be from Korea!"
