SOCIAL WORK OF THE MISSION


DEDICATION OF KANGSUH CHILDRENS LIBRARY

TO THE BLIND

Many people in Korea suffer from blindness. Because of this for many years education of blind ministers has been done in Braille, both through correspondence courses. Mr. Han, a blind preacher and educator, has been very active in this work and receives support from the mission.

TO THE HANDICAPPED

There are many physically handicapped persons who are reached by the various parts of this mission. Sign language is available for the deaf. Handicapped children are cared for at Geon Home as well as becoming students at Seoul Christian University. Physically handicapped persons are treated with love and respect and brought to their full potential.

Bro. Chae wrote in the May 1999 letter: "I mentioned about some members of our handicapped church. I knew a young man (now passed away) who could move only his eyes because of muscular dystrophy. All his body was paralyzed but his eyes. But he read the Bible and many other books, and wrote many beautiful poems of faith. The way he wrote - his mother pointed to letters of the alphabet and as her finger came to the letter he wanted, he blinked -- and she copied it down. That’s how he wrote several books of poetry. One of his poems goes something like this:

‘To a lonely heart nobody wanted to talk to, Jesus came down and sat down to talk.
To a problem nobody wanted to listen to, Jesus came and laid down to listen.
To a promise everyone seemed to forget, Jesus came and said, "Trust me; I will never forget."’"

Kangsuh Children's Library Building

Counseling Building

The Kangsuh Children's Library Building is open to the children of the community who find it a better place to go than the ubiquitous video shops available in the community. The Renovated Counseling Building has space for Psychological and Mental Therapy rooms to treat needy children.
