About Our Partners

Regional Liaison for East Asia

Choon and Yen Hee Lim were appointed as mission co-workers in 1991. For six years they worked on the islands off the coast of South Korea in the “Island Medical Mission” of the Presbyterian Church of Korea. Then they went to Taiwan where they developed a ministry among Aboriginal college students in Hualien. After fifteen years in Taiwan, Choon was called to be the “Regional Liaison” of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) for East Asia. In this role, Choon is the “face” of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) for global partners in South and North Korea, China (Hong Kong), Taiwan, and Japan. He is the chief relational bridge connecting these mature global partners with each other and with the PC(USA). Yen Hee engages in ministry through the home. Choon was born in what is now North Korea. He travels there one to two times a year to nurture relationships with the Church, and he is deeply involved with all who long for the peaceful reunification of the peninsula.

The Impact

Choon and Yen Hee Lim have served as missionaries for 25 years. Wherever they have served – South Korea, Taiwan, and now the East Asian Region – they have had a special heart for those on the margins of society: people without medical access isolated in islands off the Korean coast; aboriginal minority peoples in Taiwan; and the suffering people of North Korea. Their compassion and practical skills have borne fruit in each place of ministry.

The Need

The Outreach Foundation is seeking gifts totaling $15,000 for support funds.
