In March, eight members of Korean Church of Orange County, a Christian Reformed congregation in Westminster, Calif., spent 10 days in short-term mission in Delhi and Bhopal, India. They were visiting and working alongside Song Kwang Ho, a missionary sent from the congregation to India a few years ago. The group helped with Song’s teaching and aid to orphanages and medical clinics.
In prayer for the group as they were dedicated for the mission, pastor Rev. Sung Soo Nam said “Our God, who has kept us in 31 years of Korean Church of Orange County history, will surely fulfill our dream. Our church will not simply end up as a local church in Southern California. God will use our church as a vessel for the evangelization of America and the world, even India.”
At a sending service held March 11, the whole church prayed for those commissioned and hosted a fundraising bazaar after all three worship services in the church parking lot. Members of the church said that they want to share the love they have received from the Lord to people in India. They prayed for the salvation of 1.3 billion people of India and that the short-term missionaries should be humbly used.
