Dear friends in the Lord,
December 11, 2013
Thanks for your continual support in prayers and encouragement of my ministries in China and Korea.
Through our trips to Beijing, Shanghai, and several cities in Korea, God has blessed the OMSC ministries
in many ways and given us more strong relationship with Chinese Christians and many Korean churches
and mission organizations. This is a brief report of my trips with some photos.

fundraising for the KGMLF 2015, and my project budget will be around $200,000.
Please support us in your prayers.
From November 23 to December 4 in Korea
As you may know, by God’s grace I could make all schedules for Dr. Jonathan Bonk and his wife, Jean
Bonk and Dr. Nelson Jennings and Dr. Dwight Baker as well. I really appreciate the many servants who
help me in many practical ways (For an instance, hotels, meals, transportations and so on). In particular,
I want to express many thanks to Rev. Jae Hoon Lee who is a senior pastor of Onnuri community church
because he offered a very nice hotel (five star level in Seoul) for Dr. Nelson Jennings, Dr. Dwight Baker,
Dr. Jonathan Bonk and his wife, Jean Bonk. Jon and Jean stayed in their accommodation for eight
evenings which include breakfast in the hotel.

I am sorry that I was not able to attend last board meeting at OMSC because of so many events and
meetings for Dr. Jonathan Bonk and his wife, Jean Bonk until they went to Myanmar on December 4.
Even though I was in my home country, Korea for many days, but I could not find an enough time to
see my mother who has suffered with Alzheimer’s symptoms.
Above of all, I want to thank God because He has done so many things in China and Korea for His glory
and Kingdom. I want to continue to work very hard to develop our relationship between OMSC and
many Korean churches and mission organizations in order to better serve our Lord.
Thanks again for your great support in prayers.
