There is tremendous potential through this opportunity to significantly advance the gospel to unreached peoples and places around the world. The overarching objective is to strengthen and support Korean Baptist missionary selection, sending, support, and strategic deployment initiatives. The International Mission Board (IMB) is working closely with the Korean Foreign Mission Board (FMB) on a three-pronged initiative called Korean International Missions Coworker Help Initiative (KIMCHI) to strategically send short-term and long-term missionaries to partner with IMB personnel on the field. Your gift to KIMCHI will fuel a missionary movement from Korea to East Asia and the world as we partner together to finish the task among all peoples and nations.
Terms of service for Korean international missionaries will include Hands-On missionaries serving six months to one year; Journeyman missionaries serving from one to two years; and long-term Apprentice units that serve more than three years.
From the skyscrapers of Hong Kong and vast plains of Mongolia to smoky rainforests hiding winding rivers edged by golden sands, the natural beauty and long history of these Asia-Pacific Rim countries testify to God’s creative hand. This vast region houses four of the most populous global cities, as well as the country with the world's largest nominal population of Muslims.
Spirituality swirls through cities and countryside like the smoke from temple incense sticks. Buddhists, Muslims, Hindus, animists, Daoists and ancestor worshipers live here, comprising 851 unreached people groups who have never heard that freedom is found in Christ. Pray for divine appointments for Christian workers to share that Jesus is the way to peace with God and eternal life. Ask God to glorify His name among the peoples of the Asian Pacific Rim Peoples affinity.
