Presentation on the Suffering of North Koreans

nkposter_full.jpg

I am grateful to announce that J.D. Kim Ministries will be hosting a presentation on the suffering of North Koreans co-sponsored by Denver Seminary Asian Initiative. Mr. Shin, who defected from North Korea a few years ago, will be our presenter and share with us about his experience of growing up in a North Korean prison camp.

As many of us are aware, our North Korean brothers and sisters are going through tremendous and horrific afflictions physically, psychologically, and spiritually. According to Prayer Cast, “It is estimated that over the past fifteen years, two million North Koreans have died due to food shortages…The North Korean government has been accused of torture, slavery, public executions, forced abortions, infanticides, as well as detaining possibly 200,000 political prisoners” (www.prayercast). Also, Open Doors reports, “Christians are seen as hostile elements in society that have to be eradicated” (www.opendoorsusa.org). 

Over the years, many brave North Koreans defected from the vicious regime, taking the risk of being tortured to death, deported to labor camps, or killed on the spot. Recently, I met Mr. Shin, one of these North Korean defectors. He suffered so much pain while growing up in a North Korean prison camp and experienced many types of hardships. Being moved by the grace of God, he made a difficult decision to share his testimony with us. It will be a great and humble time for us to learn in firsthand about the brutal conditions that our North Korean brothers and sisters are going through every day, so that we can pray fervently and sincerely to our sovereign and loving God for the transformation of the nation.

We will be meeting at Denver Seminary chapel at 9:00 am on April 20, 2019. Starting with a praise and worship, we will hear his testimony and have a time for a Q&A. Then, we will have an early lunch and a time of fellowship with one another. I hope many of you can come to the presentation and stay for fellowship. Please RSVP for attendance and lunch.

Schedule:

·        9:00 to 9:10, Praise & Worship

·        9:10 to 9:15, Introduction

·        9:15 to 11:00, Testimony

·        11:00 to 11:15, Q&A

·        11:15 to 12:00, Lunch

Prayer Meeting: Suffering of Poverty

Prayer Meeting: Suffering of Poverty

  • Cherry Hills Community Church (Fireside Room) (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Last month, as one church of Jesus Christ, we gathered together in one name and one spirit and prayed for Iran and her spiritual and social liberations from the bondage of sin and cycle of suffering. Pastor Tat shared with us about the crises that are occurring in the country and the amazing things that God is still doing through numerous Iranian people regardless of the hardships and oppositions. God commands us to call out to him, and we simply obeyed him as one community.

For our next prayer meeting on 2/28, we will cry out for God’s mercy for those individuals who are struggling with poverty. The Scripture teaches us that God does care about the poor: “You have been a refuge for the poor, a refuge for the needy in their distress, a shelter from the storm and a shade from the heat” (Isa. 25:4). Unfortunately, so many people around the world are suffering because of poverty. According to Compassion, “Almost 1 billion people living below the World Bank poverty line of $1.90 per day. Nearly 4 billion people live with a household income below $2.50 a day… Sexual abuse is a hidden pandemic that affects millions of children in every country.”

Rev. Tony Hyun will share with us about the suffering of poverty, God’s special message for the poor, and Compassion ministry. Tony and his wife have been supporters of the international Christian ministry, Compassion. He has volunteered as a special event facilitator at Compassion, and her wife works there as a senior associate of sponsor and donors. It will be a humble time to remind ourselves of the impact of poverty around the world and the desperate callings of our LORD. David declares: “With my mouth I will greatly extol the Lord; in the great throng of worshipers I will praise him. For he stands at the right hand of the needy, to save their lives from those who would condemn them” (Ps. 109:30-31). Let’s stand on the side of our LORD by praying for our fellow human beings suffering with poverty.

Prayer Meeting: Evangelizing Iran

Hello friends,

I am excited to announce that we are starting our prayer meetings in 2019. Even though we may not meet on every third Thursday of each month in 2019, we will try to meet as often as we can on Thursdays to confess our faith in Him and call out to our Lord together, as the Scriptures teach us to pray communally. Also, check out the new website of J.D. Kim Ministries.

We will be conducting our prayer meetings little differently in 2019, focusing on one specific theme in each meeting. The theme of the first meeting is “Evangelism: Iran.” I invited Rev. Tat Stewart who serves as the pastor of his organization, Talim Ministries, which serves Iranian people and Christians, equipping pastors and others to become disciples among the Iranian people and providing the Biblical resources for churches inside and outside of the country of Iran. http://home.talimministries.com/

Here is a brief story of the pastor: “I am the son of medical missionaries to Iran.  My father and mother lived in Iran for over 27 years and I lived there for 17 years…We were in Iran on November 4, 1979 when the American hostages were taken…have spent the last 40 years ministering to Muslims for Iran.  My wife and I planted an Iranian church in the Washington D.C area…I was one of the founders of SAT-7 PARS, a 24/7 Farsi Christian satellite ministry. I have personally taught over 100 hours of discipleship materials in Farsi on the satellite ministry (www.Sat7pars.com)...Currently, I lead Farsi Bible studies in Colorado Springs, Denver and Fort Collins.

It will be a great opportunity for us to learn more about the suffering of the Iranian people and the needs for God’s sovereign and unconditional love for all nations and human beings. I hope you can make to the meeting, so that we can be inspired by one another and beseech God to have mercy on Iran and her people. The first meeting will be on 1/31/2019 (Thu.) at CHCC (Fireside of Room). Before you come, please watch this video to familiar yourselves with the hardships of the country, if possible. https://vimeo.com/250189103
Send me your prayer requests, and we will pray with you.

Blessings,

J.D. Kim

We glorify the triune God who exists in the glorious fellowship of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. It is our strength, privilege and blessing to worship him, and him alone. Last month, a friend from Indonesia and Pastor Gene Kissinger who came back from an Indonesia mission trip shared about Indonesians who were struggling with many hardships physically and spiritually. Our hearts were united in one Power and sought one Name that is above all names. On 6/21, we will continuously beseech God for his mercy and faithfulness, pray for Egypt and her people, and ask God to use his saints and churches to transform not only Egypt, but also the surrounding cities and countries around her.

Prayer Meeting

We worship an amazing God who deserves all glory and honor, and under the shadow of his wings, we can find rest and comfort and regain our strength, confidence, and hope again. Last month, we had a great fellowship of prayer. I invited a friend who is from Mexico, and she shared a story of losing her friend because of the drug cartel. Our hearts were crushed, and all of us cried with her for Mexico. Tomorrow, we will continuously beseech God for his mercy and faithfulness and pray for Indonesia as she is suffering tremendously and has been suffering through Tsunami which occurred on 12/26/2004 and took away the lives of 230,000 people. We will humbly lift up our voices, brokenness, and faith to God. Join us. CHCC (Fireside room), 7:00, 5/17 (every third Thursday each month).

Prayer Meeting

Last month, we had an amazing prayer time, praising the name of Yahweh and crying out to God for his compassion. We usually meet on the third Thursday of each month, but in April, we will be meeting at CHCC, at 7:00 on 4/26, not on 4/19. On 4/26, we will beseech God to have mercy on Mexico, restore the order of the government, comfort the broken hearts of numerous Mexicans, and raise up his people to lead their churches and communities to seek God and fight injustice. Scripture says, “…every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father” (Phi. 2:10-11). This is exactly what we do in our meetings. We raise our voices and pray in English, Korean, Spanish, and tongue, confessing Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior who is the greatest of all. Send me your prayer requests, and we will pray with you.

Prayer Meeting

J.D. Kim Ministries will begin our monthly prayer meeting in 2018. The Scripture teaches us that when believers gathered and prayed in humility and faith, God had compassion on them and answered their supplications. More importantly, God was glorified through their prayers. The meeting will start at 7:00pm on 1/18/2018, and will be on every third Thursday of a month, same time and place, at Cherry Hills Community Church: fireside-room, on the second floor of the main building. Come to the main entrance of the main building, and you will see the sign to the room. “Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them” (Matt. 18:19-20).
