Press Release by Kukmin-Ilbo (Korea Daily Newspaper) for Korea UBF Ministry
"It is most important to focus on the next generation of mission work even though it is too hard to bear the fruit of evangelization." The young people of today who lost their dream can renew their dreams and visions through the living word of God." Nothing is impossible for campus ministers if they are armored with prayer and living word".
Looking back in the year 2016 we only give thanks, glory and praise to God for guiding us over the years. From the day I first arrived in Cambodia in November 2010 my family has been walking through the wilderness by hand of God. The biggest challenge for me is the language. At my first job at a university I had to teach students in English, even though my English was bad. I had to study English to teach them in English at the same time. However it was a time of blessing from God. Every lecture I gave was a moment of experiencing the power of God.
Hebrews 12:2 – “Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
Throughout 2016 we posted 394 articles on the UBF web. (see Table 1) Among them Africa 39, Asia 58, M E 5, Korea 39, Europe 40, CIS 15, North America 136 and Latin America 62 articles were posted. (See Table)
We studied full Hebrews and Mark's gospel in 2016. Sh. Abraham stopped his spiritual wandering for last six month and returned to God's mission at Good Friday Camp. Since then M. Barnabas, Sh. Abraham and Sh. Gideon delivered Sunday worship message in turn. We have been doing testimony sharing meeting and Bible study every week after finishing our Sunday worship service. Through this we made a strong vessel of the Holy Spirit. Abraham and Gideon have grown in spirit through messenger training ans sister Bhawani and Irasha have grown to be mothers of prayer.
Key verse: Psalms 121,1-2 “I lift up my eyes to the hills. Where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.”
I. Review of Greek ministry: The year of birth and growth
Since the beginning of pioneering our ministry, which started in 1991, we faced a big challenge in the year 2015 due to health problems of the first missionary, Lydia Lee. After overcoming these kinds of trial by faith and prayer, God blessed us richly the next year.
