You Will Be My Witnesses

missionsTwo weeks ago, a retired minister and professor asked me to find some old documents published by Oklahoma Christian University between 1972 and 1974. This minister, after his retirement, has been trying to find and record history of Korea Church of Christ. One of his major tasks is to find and record how Korea Christian University where I studied was founded. His purpose is to remember and give thank to those who helped and support as this university has been built. In addition, he desires to show how God has been doing His work through the world.

 

          During 1950s, probably almost all Americans did not know where Korea was located. Compared to the States, Korea was too small to find on the map; However, some godly and passionate young missionaries and families decided to come and deliver the gospels. Due to the different oriental circumstance, unfortunately some passed away and either their family or babies went to see God too early. Despite of this sadness, they did not stop delivering the good news at all. They built schools and hospitals, helped the poor and the sick, and supported many orphans. Sometimes, instead of taking care of their own family members, the missionaries took care of Korean in need.

 

          After almost 60 years later, South Korea became second largest country which sends missionaries to the world. How is it possible? If South Korea did not receive this huge help and support during that time, sending a lot of missionaries to other countries would not be possible. Jesus started His church, and His disciples sprout the church and expanded the kingdom of God. In addition, their ministries were not isolated in Jerusalem.

 

          Acts 1:8 says “will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” The Bible clearly tells us we should be witnesses to the ends of the earth. South Korea at that time was one of the ends of the earth. That was why the young missionaries came to South Korea, and this is still the reason why we continue to support mission works.

 

          God always looks for those who worship Him and believe in Christ. If there are some people who do not know about God, we have to help them know about God. This task is never-ending until Jesus comes again.
