September 16, 2012

On August 24, 2012, Pastor Delbert Baker, General Conference (GC) General Vice President, and Pastor Kwon JohngHaeng, Adventist Mission Director for the Northern Asia-Pacific Division (NSD), visited the HankookSahmyook High School.All teaching staff at this school areAdventistsas well as 90% of the students.They start every single day with a praise song and the reading of the Bible through the central broadcasting system. 

The pastors visiting the school were so impressed with the vision of Kyung Hee Lee, President of the school, to take care of the students “whole-person.”They were also impressed with the fine educational facilitieswhich have a Bible class, Character Education and a Departmentalized classroom system.

They gathered around together and had a friendly talk, encouraging many of the students, while otherstudents were in choir practice. The pastors were so impressed by the choir’s harmony. The school has put pianos everywhere in the school to allow students to play them whenever they want, especially for singing practice. These are just a few of the things which seem to say how special this school is.

Pastor Baker saw the statue of the Good Samaritan and complimented the idea of installing this statue because that is the symbol that reveals the ideology ofHankookSahmyook. He stated that he had the statue of the Cross installed when he was thepresident of Oakwood University.

The President also explained the plan for setting up the prayer park recently. Pastor Baker donated $500.00 USD to the school for that. He also promised that when he returned to Korea, he would preach at the HankookSahmyook High School.They had a meaningful time and thanked God.
