On June 2, 1943 Choi, Tae Hyun (1888-1943) died after being tortured by forces that occupied Korea during World War II.
He was a graduate of Won Heung Middle School and studied at Korean Baptist Seminary. In 1910 he joined the Seventh-day Adventist Church and entered evangelistic work, serving as a licensed minister in the Central and West Chosen missions (1910-1922).
After his ordination in 1922, Choi, Tae Hyun served variously as district leader in Manchuria, a Bible teacher at Korean Union Training School, and as a mission president.
During World War II he was president of all the Adventist work in Korea. But occupying forces that controlled the country had a policy to suppress Christianity. He was imprisoned, along with many other Christian leaders, and tortured to death. He was probably the first Seventh-day Adventist martyr in Korea.

n “And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away. Then He who sat on the throne said, ‘Behold, I make all things new’ ” (Rev. 21:4, 5).
These words are very meaningful for me as I recall the death of my son, Leif. He loved Jesus and died at the age 18 in a car accident as he traveled home from South Queensland camp meeting in September 2008.

n As a new Adventist suffering various traumas, I had the audacity to write then General Conference president Robert Pierson, asking for a Bible promise that could help a person in desperate need.
