Today for our missions prayer time, let’s go to South Korea and learn how God solved a good problem. Along the way we’ll pray for Stuart Robinson, one of our many missionaries serving in South Korea. He lives in the huge city of Seoul, the nation’s largest city with some 10 million residents.
The good problem was that a church was growing. Growth is wonderful and to be prayed for. But finding a meeting place in Seoul is difficult. Most South Koreans live in small apartments in high-rise buildings. Having church services in these apartments is difficult, since noise that would offend neighbors is not socially acceptable. Besides, a group meeting in an apartment is likely to be seen as a cult to be avoided.
Stuart went to a Baptist family who owns a café. Since they closed their café on Sundays, could the church meet there? They immediately said yes! In fact, they said God had already told them they should do just that.
Our church supports Stuart as he serves in that big city. Let’s pray that through him many will find Christ — AND a good place to worship!
