That's Him

“In 2004, I felt that God was leading our family to adopt. However, when we started to find out about the process, we learned that due to our low(er) income, we did not qualify to adopt through an adoption agency. I realized that this type of adoption was not in His plans for us and I started to look into other methods of adopting. Seven years later in 2011, we received an email from our church network in South Korea, about our Seungha. 
Our son Seungha was born to a North Korean refugee who escaped without realizing that she was pregnant. She gave birth as she was going through the resettlement counseling in South Korea. Due to difficult circumstances, she had requested help from a local pastor, who is a part of our worldwide ministry, to find her son a new home. As soon as we read the email, we knew right away, ‘that’s him’. The very next day we went and brought him home. 
Adopting Seungha became a major turning point in our lives. We adopted so unexpectedly and there were major changes and challenges that my husband, myself, and my two college aged sons were faced with. But we had faith in our God who is sovereign and faithful in His promises. Galatians 6:9 says “And let us not grow weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap, if we do not give up.” As we continue our ministry in Guam, we hope that we can continue to care for the children of the Philippines, Micronesian islands, as well as North Korea. We are so thankful and honored to be Seungha’s parents.”
