Shepherd’s Corner – February 3, 2019

As Pastor Daevid is in Korea for his adoption process, the conversation with him got me thinking about couple things; how costly it is to adopt a child financially, how much time and patience it requires. Then got me thinking about ourselves, that we as believers of Jesus Christ are all adopted children of God. In order for us to be adopted…

Today is Super Bowl LIII (or 53 for us modern folk). Did you know that means this is Tom Brady’s 9th time playing in the Super Bowl? He has appeared in more Super Bowls than any NFL team today (except his own team the Patriots). Those are some impressive numbers. But I bet after the 5th or 7th time it’s almost like…

Shepherd’s Corner – January 27, 2019

As we close out the first month of 2019, I hope and pray that we are still mindful of the many blessings that we have received from God. Let’s not make that practice an “end of the year” thing, but an “all the time” thing. Because when we regularly remind ourselves of God’s provisions and faithfulness in our lives, then we are…

Thank you for your prayers during our Thailand trip! By God’s grace we returned safely and were very blessed during our time there. It was great to see how God is using His people to share the love of Christ in Phetchabun and Bangkok! We were able to visit with Todd and Karen Indehar in Bangkok and listen to their story of…

Thank you for your prayers for our Y1 retreat. It was a blessing! With that being fresh in my mind, I want to remind who might have already forgotten the necessity of fixing our eyes on Christ and would also like to encourage those who weren’t at retreat because we need to hear this again and again. We have a tendency to…

It seems just like yesterday a team went to Thailand. But here we are going again! This was an intentional scheduling to keep our minds on global missions all throughout the year instead of just once in the summer. Please pray for our team. I’m worried that after having come out of the holiday season so recently that we may not be…

Shepherd’s Corner – December 30, 2018

I think you will all agree with me that 2018 was a full and busy year. With the development of our fellowship hall after the wall was removed, the joining of the Indonesian Church in using our chapel, the acquisition of a used minivan, and the addition of more pastoral staff there is no doubt that God is living and active and…

Shepherd’s Corner – December 23, 2018

God is a promise keeper. God had promised a savior, the Messiah, and in His time, Jesus was born. The long awaited savior was born in Bethlehem just as it was prophesied. However, it wasn’t when, what, or how the people had expected. Israelites expected a political savior; and they probably expected it during their exile or even much earlier; and of…

Shepherd’s Corner – December 16, 2018

By God’s grace we have been growing. I’ve explained that the growth that is most important is spiritual maturity, but we’ve also been growing in numbers. Most of our numerical growth has been (but not limited to) our Y1. And I am thankful for our pastoral intern, Andrew Chang’s faithful service! But this also means that we need more man power to…

Shepherd’s Corner – December 9, 2018

As we have KM’s senior pastor candidate and our Y2 pastor candidate come and share God’s word today, I am thankful that we have men who have faithfully committed themselves to the work of God’s kingdom and church.  The call to the pastorate is not an easy one and definitely not a glamorous one (actually if you ever see a pastorate that’s…
