Annual Report and Leadership
Korean Language Ministry 2013 Annual Report
• KLM is involved with the “Heavenly Dream School,” which is a school for young North Korean refugees who escaped from North Korea. The conditions in North Korea are extremely harsh and any attempt to escape is a life or death situation. Anyone who succeeded and made it to the South needs time and guidance to learn and adjust to the freedom and abundance that South Koreans enjoy. KLM tries to offer financial support through egg roll sales and golf outings.
• KLM hosts Korean students attending IPFW, Huntington University and Grace College. As some of these students never attended church and experienced a Christian life, it is truly amazing to feel we are planting a seed of Christian faith into these young souls. It is with the utmost humble and joyous gratitude to report that some of these young students have expressed their experience with KLM was a privilege, and they felt blessed to learn about a God they never knew.
• KLM Started a New Youth Program. The “Lunch and Learn” group invites various professionals within or outside of our congregation to a lunch and question and answer session. We are hoping the information the youth gain will help and guide them in planning their jobs and futures.
• KLM plans to undertake more endeavors in the “All Neighbors” program. A mission trip to Nicaragua is planned in the summer of 2014 with a youth group from a Korean church in Indianapolis.
Through our God’s grace, I became a minister at an amazingly wonderful First Presbyterian Church in Ft. Wayne. I feel as if my place now is the culmination of all my hopes, efforts, studies, dreams and more. I believe His grace has given me more than I ever hoped and expected. I have said this many times before, but again, I truly feel blessed to be here with you. Thank you.
