Workshop On Strategic Missions

I’ve got an important project this summer, which is a training course for local missionaries in India this August. For the needs in the field and the given circumstances, I’ve made a few major changes in it, and it is now a 3-week intensive workshop. Please pray for this!

In recent years, it has been getting tougher and tougher for expat missionaries to enter and stay in India because of the fundamental Hindu government. It is now more important than any time before to train and equip local missionaries so they can multiply ministries by themselves. Especially, northern India and the Himalayas (north of the extended line of Delhi and Kolkata) have the most concentrated unreached people groups (100 million people) in the world with massive demonic activities, yet very few missionaries and very few Christians in the region. Though it’s been 227 years since the first Protestant missionary William Carey came to India in 1792, this area still remains as one of the 7 most strategic mission fields today. It is necessary to aggressively expand ministries in the region for the kingdom of God! Continue reading “2019 Summer Newsletter”

Irish Spring Greetings to You!

We hear some of you have moved, some started something new, some even thriving, most doing well where you are, yet some struggling with issues. We do pray that the Lord will keep you and give you grace for today… and again tomorrow! His love never fails!

And, here we give you our updates. We’ve been busy with a few projects already since January. Our application for another visa extension we had submitted in January went well, and we got another year in Ireland in March. Thank you for prayers! Continue reading “2019 Spring Newsletter”

Merry Christmas To You All!

Merry Christmas To You All!

Dear friends and families around the globe,

2018 has been a victorious year as a family in many ways by the grace of our Heavenly Father, and we can’t thank you enough for all your support and prayers that have been enabling us to walk through it all. And here is an encouragement from the Lord for you: And if you give even a cup of cold water to one of the least of my followers, you will surely be rewarded.” – Jesus (Matthew 10:42)

Family Briefs

This is our first Christmas time as a family without two of our children, Kevin and Hyejin. We miss them terribly, but are happy that they are doing well in the Lord and we still have Yujin with us!

2018 Fall Newsletter

2018 Fall Newsletter

Dear friends and families, 

Hope and pray you are all well in the Lord! It’s been a while again, and I’ve got a lot to bring you up to date, but will try not to dump too much on you. I’ll, of course, share more, if you personally contact me, though. 🙂 

The India trip back in April was successful. My teaching went very well for their training course, and it was good to be back in India after many years to see my old friends. Thank you for all your support and prayers! They wanted me to come back next year not only to teach again for the next school, but also to set up and run a whole new training course for them. What a blessing and an opportunity to serve them to reach further among the unreached, because the new training course is all about training and launching new missionaries into the most critical areas in the world!

Quick Update on Current Needs

This is a quick update (which got a bit longer – find out why below) on our current needs about what I initially shared in the last winter newsletter.

First, we are very encouraged and thankful to tell you that most of the following needs have been met in time – EUR 800 for the car repair costs (wiper motor, ignition coils, and other minor repairs), and USD 3,400 for the first quarter of Kevin’s spring semester tuitions and fees. We were blown away by the generous gifts from a couple of donors, though we don’t even know who the second person was! We deeply thank God and those of you who gave for the sacrificial and timely giving! Continue reading “Quick Update on Current Needs”

2015 Christmas Greetings to our Family and dear Friends!

2015 Christmas Greetings to our Family and dear Friends!

It is still amazing that so many people around the world are celebrating the birth of a little Jewish baby, born to this world over two millennia ago! I worship this humble King, Jesus.

In the meantime, I’ve been feeling grateful for each of you who stood with me and my family during this big transitioning time in 2015, remembering, praying for, and supporting us. Thank you, thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts! It’s been a great year of God’s guidance and help for our steps and wonderful provision through your prayers and support!

Let me briefly tell you one story how we were able to ship our stuff all the way from Korea to Ireland. It will hopefully encourage your faith, as well. Continue reading “2015 Christmas Greetings to our Family and dear Friends!”

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year… Not for the Reason You Are Thinking

A year end is always a special time, as I want to wrap up the year and get ready for the new year to be opened up. But, that’s not makes it noble and lofty — it’s, of course, Christmas! God has come to be with people! The Son of God came down to save and bring us back to the Father. But still, that is only half the story. Yes, you heard me right… only half.

The Celtic Heroes that Saved Europe

(Continued from PART 2: Family and Homeschool)

Despite the fact that the most of the Irish Catholics, which makes about 90% of the population, is said to be only nominal Christians, and despite the fact that this country became the first to legalize same-sex marriage by popular vote (not by the Parliament, nor by the Court) this year, Europe could have fallen into darkness during the long-ago Middle Age and not risen from their spiritual, cultural downfall, if it weren’t for these Irish people.  It was a historic movement started in the 6th century that saved the European Civilization by the Celtic Irish missionaries who brought the gospel back to the Britain and to western Europe.

They were once called as barbarians by the Romans, Continue reading “The Celtic Heroes that Saved Europe”

Family and Homeschool

(Continued from PART 1: Fall 2015 Newsletter)

Probably some of you wanted to hear more about our family than all those ministry stuff.  Thank you!  So, here we go!

We purchased a car in May for which we had asked you to pray and help. Thank you, again, for all your prayers and support!  It’s a 2006 Hyundai Trajet in a good condition.  We got it at €2,100 after three trips to Dublin.  It took me a while even to do some basic research on different car models and prices, because the models and even the vehicle categories are different here and I initially didn’t even know what I could buy for my family with the given budget.  But, eventually everything boiled down to two models only – Renault Scenic and Hyundai Traget.
