You Helped a Mission Keep its Church in Korea

One of our ROCOR missions was about to be thrown out on the street...

Fr. Paul Kang from the Korean Ortho- dox Mission (South Korea) contacted us and told us that their mission was four (4!) days away from being thrown out of their church...

For many years, the mission was self-sufficient, funded by its own clergy. Seeing how difficult poverty was for the mission and for his father, who was the priest at the time, the current head of the mission, Fr. Paul Kang, focused on his education, got a Ph.D. in Physics, and became an entrepreneur.

Fr. Paul (mostly) single-handedly supported the work of the mission, as well as book translation and publication for several years. But his business went bankrupt and ‒ since he was supporting it on his own dime ‒ so did the mission.

They have their own priest, several readers, and a growing community of parishioners ‒ comprised of native South Koreans, as well as Russians. They serve in Korean with a little bit of Slavonic.

Thanks to generous people like you – we collected over $20,000!!!

Fr. Paul was able to pay the rent and have some money left over!

This would never have happened if it hadn’t been for your kindness and willingness to help your Orthodox brothers and sisters – even as far as South Korea!

“He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth unto the Lord.
And that which he hath given will He pay him again” (Proverbs 19:17).
