Over the last few years, I began praying for God to direct my life on how He wanted me to serve Him whether vocationally or in the ministry. Through the death of my grandfather, a retired missionary and pastor, I realized that life is too short to waste. I was burdened to see how the Lord could use me. It was shortly after this that Korea was placed on my heart. I began to pray and ask the Lord for direction in regards to helping or serving in South Korea.
My home church has a missionary family serving in South Korea. I began to pray specifically for their ministry and was excited to see them as they were coming back on furlough.Through various meetings with them, trusted godly mentors, and my family, I knew the Lord was calling me to serve Him through missions, specifically in South Korea. As a result of His direction in my life, I am answering that call to serve Him in Paju with the Gospel in children's and ladies' ministries as well as through potential camp and outreach opportunities.
Located about 45 minutes north of Seoul, a city coined with the term “gateway to the reunification of Korea”, Paju is where the 1953 Korean Armistice Agreement was signed. Bordering North Korea, you can see the Demilitarized Zone and parts of North Korea from various points in the city. With a population over 420,000 people, the city is growing rapidly from people relocating out of Seoul. This provides a great opportunity for outreach of all different types of people. My prayer is that through various outreach and working with Mars Hill Baptist Church, the Gospel will be used to bring people to Christ.
I am grateful to be sent out of Friendship Baptist Church in Raleigh, NC pastored by Bob Vradenburgh (who was a missionary in Grand Cayman years ago). I am grateful to the Friendship church body for their guidance, accountability, prayer & financial support!
