The 15th PMM Dedication Service
December 13, 2016

The 15th Pioneer Mission Movement (PMM) dedication service was held on November 5, 2016, at the SDA English Institute Church in Korea, during the Annual Council of the Northern Asia-Pacific Division (NSD). Five pastors and their families have volunteered to serve for six years in frontier missions for the purpose of church planting and saving souls.

Pastor Abner De Los Santos, vice president of the General Conference, encouraged the PMM pastors with a powerful message through his preaching. He said to the pastors, “You are not here by chance. Because God has chosen you to show His will, you will be His witnesses to all people of what you have seen and heard.”

Dr. Jairyong Lee, NSD president, commended them for their sacrificial missionary spirit as he presented the plaque of missionary appointment. These pastors have been assigned to three different countries: Park JinSu – Taiwan; Choi JungSik – Taiwan; Kim JongChul – Mongolia; Suh HwangKyo – Mongolia; Nyamdavaa Dovchinsuren – China.

There have been 110 missionary families sent out since the first five PMM missionary families were dispatched to foreign mission fields in 2003. As of October 2016, 50 families are currently serving in 16 different countries.
