Each year during the holiday season, Abundant Life Korean Christian Reformed Church, located in Los Angeles’ Koreatown, invites young people with disabilities and those who are addicted to drugs to a dinner.
The church, led by Rev. Dong Kim, works with Mial Mission and Shaing Mission. Volunteers from the churches and from the agencies prepare Korean foods, host a sing-along, and share a biblical message. This year the message was from Luke 15, the parable of the prodigal son.
Kim said that after the service, a young adult came over and expressed thanks for this encouraging message and said that someday he might be a pastor to share blessings with others.
