In His Own Words…

This was one of the most rewarding and exciting experiences in my life since I felt deeply and surely that it was our Lord who allowed me to go.  The trip was beyond my expectation; accommodation was quite comfortable and our environment was always amiable, probably attributed to our colleagues friendliness.  This trip was very meaningful for me since my parents were born in Pyongyang and educated by the American missionaries who planted Christian faith in the Park family.  Because our team was mostly serious Christians, the relationship among us was very congenial, joyful, and easy to carry on our daily tasks with a heart of thanksgiving instead of complaints.  I felt we all belonged to one family in spite of diversities.  There is no doubt that the pivotal element that united us was the love for our Lord.  What surprised me was the extent of CFK’s involvement for TB mission in NK. I had heard about its activities before but did not realize its vast range of assistance by such a small organization.  Here I learned that it doesn’t have to be a big organization to produce a big outcome.  If the task is for God’s glory, there is nothing to worry about!
