God blessed P. Abraham Lee and myself to have a meaningful, joyful stay with our precious coworkers in the capital of Serbia.

Serbia is a great nation and takes pride in their orthodox religion.

They are even raising new church buildings these days.

Prayer request from Cikarang UBF, Indonesia (Dr. William Kim)

Please, pray for our Easter Retreat from April 1-2,  for the program, message, and invitation. We are planning to invite 15 people. This is a joint Easter Retreat with Karawaci UBF. 

Our Key Verse for 2016 was John 12:24, “Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds." We finished one year and started the next as we usually do with our winter retreat. Francis Choi delivered the message, casting vision for the year ahead. It was our prayer to see Jesus, our true kernel of wheat this year, to die to ourselves, and have a fruitful year learning Jesus’ pathway to glory.

To Live on Every Word that Comes from the Mouth of the Lord

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.”  (Deuteronomy 6:5-7)

Matthew 24:45,   “Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom the master has put in charge of the servants in his household to give them their food at the proper time?”

After the last Well conference held on December 31, 2015, there was not another national Well conference in 2016. 

A couple of the core young leaders that handled the conference for the past 2-3 years were not involved in any planning for the next conference. Including myself (Augustine Park), Edward Papabathini, and Teddy Hembekides, Pastor Abraham also asked Little-Sarah Kim to join this advisory group to plan the next Well event. We met several times throughout the year to brainstorm and pray for the Well.
