Already six months time has passes since KAC moved to a new space last year. In this time Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) has been able to establish their office and this plan space has become well decorated and organized. Chuncheon’s Jesus Village Church and Jesus Heart Church begin KAF connection church and fellowship, while KAC is moving forward with new works.
There is now work to do at KAC beginning with Dong Gyu Ahn, the board chair, who directs 7 people. Manager Kyeong Jung Kim, Missionaries Bock Ki Kim and Sook Kyeung Park, Secretary SooJin Hwang, Sam (Samantha Moldovan), who is serving in MCC’s SALT program and will be departing this July, and resource staff member Min Jeung Bae. All full-time translators have difficulties but we will be making efforts to plan for danger with a healthy structure and foundation.
KAC considers the peace disciple community’s core values as it continues to develop materials, network and serving in the ministry.
KAC is conducting the following for this purpose:
Anabaptist lab plan (Long range plan)
Books published among the Peace & Justice Series and Anabaptist Series.
KAC & KAF hosted the first Anabaptist Community Youth Camp
Church uses Anabaptist education and development material.
Kingdom builders has began it’s 2nd half of the year and held lecture meetings (in Seoul)
Korea Mennonite history display near completion (at the office entrance)
KAC guest translator workshop
KAP homepage reconstructed
Youth & multicultural children’s English teaching material aid.
Restorative Justice Connection Project class (Gangwon Restorative practice exercise)
All the recent work could not have be hosted by God’s guiding spirit and KAC without receiving sponsor’s prayers and support. KAC requires 300 individual sponsors and support to take care of these works and push forward.
Next are some forms of KAC’s ministries that people by indirect connections may identify with.
1. International Volunteer Experience Program (IVEP) participants
2. Kingdom builder participants
3. Anabaptist Seminar, workshop, camp participants
4. KAP translators & readers
5. Mennonite Work Middle school alumni
6. Korea Anabaptist church alliance Christians
7. Development class people requested at KAC
Many outside people are coming to KAC by indirect connections. KAC would be glad and truly thankful to these people, if they would think about what help they can offer. We can compare KAC to a vehicle with very precious wonderful speculations. Yet, no mater how good that vehicle is, without fuel it can’t go anywhere. KAC as a vehicle can not continue to function if the fuel level drops too low. That is why it is necessary for KAC’s existence and ministry that we now request some of those among our indirect connections to consider supporting KAC’s ministry by giving 10,000 won (roughly $10).
2015-2017 KAC’s necessary budget items
1, KAC office management and use of property fund
2. Anabaptist theology & practice series publishing
3. Anabaptist Church caring for prayer meditation house publication
4. Korea Mennonite translator material, display and books publishing projects inserted by the Korea Church
5. Managing and caring for those outside Anabaptist seminars, workshops, classes and programs
It is very important to guard a state of stable and secure finances.
To take care of KAC’s ministries we are asking that our supporters can give us a minimum of 10,000 won ($10) a month.
Sponsors are given a donation receipt issued at the end of the year.
We hope that your work and family are blessed by God’s grace and peace.
