15th Mission Day of the Northern Asia-Pacific Division
May 20, 2013

The Northern Asia-Pacific Division (NSD) held a “15th Mission Day” together with the Southwest Korean Conference (SWKC) and the Bitgoeul Church (Pr. Yeon Geun Pyo) in Gwangju on April 28th, 2013. The Mission Day has been held every year since 2004 to remind our church workers of their mission and renew their mission spirit by providing them opportunities to participate in evangelism activities.

In the early morning of this day, the Bitgoeul Church members invited many elderly people to join the Mission Day program which provided them with good activities, sermons and healthy food. After this big event, they had a Mission Day program with the staff of the NSD and the SWKC.

The guest speaker, Dr. Samuel Wang, Associate Director of Global Mission’s Study Center for East Asian Religions and Traditions, shared a special experience that he had gone through. He suggested several ways on how to effectively approach others with our message.

Pr. Yong Hun Kim, a school chaplain at the Honam Sahmyook Academy, and Elder Samkon Kim gave their own testimony of evangelism which had totally changed others lives from death to eternal life. Many people were touched by the speakers that day.

Pr. Yeon Geun Pyo grouped people into 32 teams and let them distribute leaflets along with small books on the street. Church members, NSD and SWKC staff did this it in unison, pursuing a common goal.

Dr. Jairyong Lee, NSD President, gave his thoughts on evangelism by saying, “If all the 177 church institutions in the NSD territory, whether small or big, appoint a Mission Day each year so the 12,600 staff members could distribute 200 leaflets each, it would mean that we would be able to reach 2.5 million people with the Three Angels Message. I encourage all institutions’ participation in this meaningful day so that we could be inspired by the mission spirit and have a new vigor for evangelism.”
