Min & Me
Min & Jan

I want you to meet a young lady from Korea that has crossed our paths at University Baptist Church for the past few weeks. Her name in Min Sook. Her first time in a Christian church was while she was here in Macomb practicing her English wiht Western Illinois University. She visited as a guest of Jan (the one without the beard!) who has faithfully reached out to Min and loved her as a true Christian should.

Tonight we met at McDonald's for what should be the last time before she leaves for Chicago with her international group and back to Korea on Monday. Pray for Min as God is speaking to her and drawing her to Himself. She is now and will continue to be a blessing to our lives. God has ignited a sense of urgency to share His love because of her.

I let Min know that I was praying 2 Scriptures with her in mind.

Ephesians 1:17-18--"I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. 18 I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints,"

Colossians 1:9-14--"For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you and asking God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding. 10 And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, 11 being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and joyfully 12 giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light. 13 For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, 14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins."

I pray that God does these things in your life, Min. It is a joy to know you. Will you join me in praying for Min?
