FROM POLICE OFFICER TO PASTOR: Retired police officer Hwang Haochu (center) is training for the ministry, thanks to the witnessing activities of Achou Chen and Pastor Hyung Taeklim.PMM Pastor Hyung Taeklim and his family arrived in Taiwan three years ago. After spending one year learning Mandarin, he started looking for a place to hold meetings. He met Achou Chen, a Seventh-day Adventist member who told him about a shop that had closed on the ground floor of the building where she lived. Pastor Lim liked the place and soon rented it to start his new church.
LEARNING THE LANGUAGE OF LOVE: Hong Insun (right) taught Korean pastors how to speak Chinese. They, in turn, taught her about Jesus. Since being baptized, Hong has become PMM coordinator for the Taiwan Conference.Not far from Taiwan Adventist College another PMM pastor and his wife are reaching out into their community. Pastor Kablim Jong was trained as a physical therapist before becoming a pastor. But he and his wife felt called to serve as missionaries. Now Mrs. Lim offers cooking and health classes and Pastor Lim does massage therapy. They’ve also opened up an upper room as a meeting place.
HEALTH MINISTRY: Achou Chen (right) uses training received at Taiwan Adventist Hospital to offer free blood pressure readings in the park. That’s how she met Mrs. Hwang, which eventually led to six of Mrs. Hwang’s nine siblings attending church.Park noticed that Joy had stopped coming to church. So he asked around and found out the reason. But something about the young man’s attitude impressed Park.
