Mission Ordination

Mission Ordination Stepping Stone

Mission Ordination: A Stepping Stone

I was born in Pomona, California, and I am excited about this mission ordination opportunity. When I was a toddler, my parents got divorced. I grew up with my mom and my younger brother. My mom was serving in the US army. When I was about six years old, my mom got stationed in Yongsan base in Korea. So, we moved to Korea. During my sophomore year in high school, my family moved back to California.

My Journey to Salvation

I followed my grandmother to her church when I was little. However, after I hit puberty, I stopped going to church. I did not go back to church until I moved to Seattle in 2001. When I was about 22, I witnessed my younger brother’s transformed life after he accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. This transformation led me to want faith in Christ. My brother offered to pray for my salvation, and the Holy Spirit came upon me as a Spirit of Repentance. I repented and asked Jesus to come into my heart with all my heart.

God has transformed my life since that moment and has called me as a missionary. I have been traveling and serving in different countries as a missionary for the last nine years. Currently, we are in an African country serving a local church that is being persecuted but keeps their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. We are very grateful that God has called us and given us this opportunity to serve His Kingdom and meet many great men and women of God.

Free Theological Training Opportunity at CLI

It is truly God’s blessing to come to know about the Christian Leaders Institute. A few years ago, I had a firm conviction that God wanted me to receive theological training. I applied for an M.Div. at a seminary in Korea and got accepted as a part-time student. However, since I was a full-time missionary on a low budget receiving financial support from my supporters, I could not continue to have that training. Obtaining sound theological training is crucial for missionaries since we must present sound biblical truth to the people we serve. This training at CLI will strengthen me. Then, I, in turn, will share what I learn at CLI to carry out our vision as Gospel sharers.

As I mentioned above, the financial burden was the reason why I could not continue my study at a local seminary. This ministry training opportunity is a gift from God. It is a key that opens the door to more significant mission opportunities for me and to have a deeper trust in God and a deeper relationship with God. I cannot wait to see what God has in store for me here!

Mission Ordination with Christian Leaders Alliance

The Deacon Minister Ordination with Christian Leaders Alliance will be a stepping stone for me to minister to women and children on the mission field. There are great opportunities for me to work with sisters and children in Christ at a local church I am serving here on the mission field.

Please pray that the persecuted Christians in this city will keep their faith firm in the Lord. Pray also that my husband and I will be pure and holy vessels to help the church grow and share the gospel with others.
