How Can I Help You?

The Irony of Giving

My friend, Poom, used to ask regularly, "How can I help you?" That is his attitude when he meets someone. The irony for me lies in being a missionary who gets income by asking people to donate, to give so I can help people. As partners I should help you to help people, and thank you for your donations in 2018. I ask for financial support for myself and also for ministry expenses. These two broad categories are sometimes misunderstood and compared to an individual salary, so I try to distinguish them clearly in my reports.

The Charge can be ready in 2019. I am so excited that my friends in MD established a 501(c)(3) organization and are willing to help me manage it. Other friends like Rev Henry have also expressed interest in partnering with us. I hope it'll be a simple and flexible organization, and it's a timely development since GP has just decided to separate the three offices (Korea, USA, Brazil) administratively. I want to be an associate member with GP, if they let me, and focus on The Charge from 2019.

Thank God for His abundant grace and love in 2018

OLC English Bible study is expanding online. And we just studied about the man born blind last Friday night in John 9 (OLC.SCS), where it turns out he's the most blessed character. The disciples and pharisees thought the blind man was cursed; but I'd rather be in his place, and I lament how Christian organizations are not generally willing to accommodate this kingdom value. We also started a second online session on Tuesday nights, with John and Cyndi from NH (Tue mornings for them). We continue to meet at SCS during our 12:15 sessions on Mondays and Fridays (and in a cafe in the evenings), but SCS needs a new building or place to meet by next spring, at least temporarily, pray for God's help in dealing with this situation.
