Stories of Global Impact: Meet Sung

May 23 2019

Sung* was born in North Korea and lived there for her first 18 years. While there, she never heard about God. In 1998, during the great famine, she fled North Korea and lived in China for eight years. Then, in 2006, she moved to South Korea and came to faith in Jesus.

Here is her story.

Although I had never heard the name of Jesus in North Korea, I was looking for him in my heart. I first heard about him in China, and I was sure that this God was the one I had been searching for in North Korea.

In the early days, as I began to attend church, I called God my Father, but I didn’t yet accept Jesus Christ as my Savior. Then, I attended a summer revival meeting and heard the Gospel message and realized that I was a sinner. I came to believe that the blood of Jesus atoned for my sins. I repented in tears and thanked God for sending his only Son Jesus to save a sinner like me, and I was assured of my salvation.

I graduated from the theology department at the OMS-related Seoul Theological University and have started working as an assistant pastor. Now, I minister to North Korean defectors in a large church, where I serve in worship, visitation, evangelism, intercessory prayer, and transportation.

As God rescued the people of Israel from their 430 years of slavery in Egypt, he also rescued me from dying without knowing Jesus. He led me from North Korea to South Korea where I have freedom to live for Christ. He gave me the opportunity to believe in Jesus and has called me to spread the Gospel to North Korean defectors in this land. When the doors to North Korea open, I want to spread the Gospel to the people there, as well.

You can help others like Sung experience the liberating truth of Jesus Christ and reach their communities and beyond for Christ by giving to the OMS Global Impact Fund today.

Will you consider giving to the Global Impact Fund today?

One Mission Stories "After the Show" - International Partners

February 26 2015

We hope you enjoyed last night's (Sunday, March 1) One Mission Stories, OMS' radio program, featuring OMS international partners from India, South Korea, and Colombia. These partners share their stories of changed lives through their work with One Mission Society. The show starts with Bishop Sundar Singh, from the Evangelical Church of India (ECI), sharing about the incredible growth of the church in India. Then, we interviewed David Jun, who partners with OMS through Friends of All Nations in South Korea, reaching out to the thousands of immigrants in Korea. And finally, we interviewed two leaders in Colombia...Lacides Hernadez, who leads Prison Fellowship of Colombia, and Andres Diez, our ECC trainer in the prisons of Colombia, with excellent translation from OMSer Greg Carlson. In the hundreds of prisons in Latin America, we hear how the Lord is working mightily. YOU MUST HEAR THESE STORIES!

Everyone has a story ... enjoy our international partners ... and make sure you take the time to share yours!
