There Will Be Joy When the Work is Done
April 10, 2013

It has been three years since Mrs. Geumja Koo became a HisHands missionary at the Maseok Church, Korea. She served at the Church as a coordinator of a Bible interest group, a teacher of new believers, and a leader of the Discipleship class. At the same time, she has regularly visited downtown Maseok as a HisHands missionary. Every Wednesday morning, she has a group reading of the Desire of Ages, and then share their experiences. Then, they continue with a prayer meeting for mission service in the afternoon.

She visits houses, and stores with gospel leaflets and booklets with her partner, for intensive evangelistic work. Five people were baptized in 2011, and three were baptized in 2012 through the service and dedication of a Maseok church pastor and his church members, as well as Mrs. Koo. In addition, the church is planning to open a book café to gather seekers to the church.

With her partner, Mrs. Koo steadily visits those interested in learning more about Jesus. She delivers God’s Word to many people including a person whose face was injured in a car accident. In 2012, she met a woman whose husband is paralyzed from the waist-down from an industrial accident. She continued visiting the house once a week for a year and a half. Finally, the woman studied the Bible with a pastor and was baptized last winter.

Mrs. Koo said, “We cannot do anything without God’s Word. It should be the foundation of our life.” As God says in Isaiah 43:25, “"I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions, for My own sake, and remembers your sins no more.” We should deliver the precious gift of life to our neighbors. Upon this word, the faith of many people in the discipleship class has grown by an unshakable belief, and through eager prayer. 

Quoting the Adventist Hymnal, “Joy by and by,” she wishes that her small work can be a spark of revival for the church. She prays to see Jesus’ face on the bright day of His coming.
