Mijeong believes and prays that God will not only heal and develop these children, but also use them to bring healing and freedom as ministers in the near future.
Mijeong is originally from Korea and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Mathematics from the University of Ajou.
Words from Mijeong:
In my third year of college, I started volunteer teaching at an after-school program. It was a heart breaking experience seeing so many kids in need. Although I had tutored for pay for over three years prior, that was the first time I really started enjoying the work. Post college, because of my full time job, I could not get involved in any ministries. All the while I had been praying for my future and finally during the summer of 2007, God convicted me that it was the right time to join Jerusalem Ministry. At the time JM was just getting off its feet and I was privileged to take a role in its attaining NGO status. In just a few months God has enlarged its vision and expanded its activities. My personal goal is in Education, particularly within the orphanages, to equip the children for Godly lives of purpose. I firmly believe through JM, God will accomplish his command to, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
