Bong Su Church Mission to the Hungry
The Bong Su Bread Factory began as a project of the Korean Christians Federation in North Korea to feed children and senior citizens in Pyongyang. Presbyterians in the United States and South Korea supported it for over a decade, but that support has dwindled in recent years.
The Korean Christians Federation would like to return to this officially approved ministry, which has been highly praised by the North Korean government:
I know what good work that you do on behalf of the Presbyterian Church. When we were hungry, you brought food, and when we were sick, you brought us medicine, and when we were cold you brought us blankets. . . . I can assure you that when things loosen up a little, those of us who have benefited from the love of Christians will go to the church, taking up the front seats, and participate in worship!
The Rev. Choon Lim, who is the Regional Liaison for East Asia for the Presbyterian Church (USA), visits North Korea regularly and delivers flour as funds are available at 30 tons per shipment. Originally from North Korea himself, Choon Lim sees this mission as particularly important as a symbol of our commitment to the Church in North Korea. He is developing partners in the U.S. and around the world to re-energize this mission. Outreach invites you also to be a part of this effort to feed the hungry.
Minimum Goal for 2016
$30,000 for feeding children and senior citizens
