The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because
the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has
sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives
Dear Beloved Friends,
Greetings! How are you? I hope that his letter finds you and your family in perfect health and rejoicing in the Lord! I would like to take this time to share with you about a missions trip that I’ll be serving in this Winter with my church.
From January 16th to the 27th, I will be in Thailand serving on a missions trip with my church “New Philadelphia Church” (newphiladelphiachurch.com). My team consists of 16 servant-hearted people, ranging from university students, teachers, and full time ministers, including 3 brothers and sisters from an English ministry in Melbourne, Australia, who are giving up their vacation days and free time to go to the nation and display the love of Jesus Christ. We will be working with a native pastor involved in the NPWM (Native Partners for World Missions), founded my our mother church Jaeilsongdo Church (제일성도교회), doing relief work in the flooded areas, encouraging the pastors and missionaries, as well as other forms of ministry.
This is my second missions trip with New Philadelphia Church and I am so excited and full of expectations. Thailand is the only nation in southeast Asia to never be colonized, but rather to have always been ruled by a king. Over 95% of the Thai people are members of the Theravada Buddhist sect, and only 0.7% of the total population are Christians. Also, Thailand has recently been hit by a massive flood, which has been the worst in decades, killing about 350 people. It is our hope and prayer to bring supernatural joy and hope, and especially the gospel and the love of Jesus Christ our Saviour, in the midst of loss and despair.
I hope that you will share in my enthusiasm and joy at this open door. At this time, I’d like to ask you for your prayers. I would like to partner with me in prayer before and during my time in the field. Satan will be on the attack but I’m asking that you will stand with me in declaring Isaiah 54:17 that no weapon formed against us shall prosper! Also, in order to go, I must individually raise 600,000 krw. If you desire to support me financially, please visit the website www.support.newphilly.cc. Thank you for reading.
Blessings and love,
