소망니까라구아 후원자 여러분께,
Dear partners in Hope Nicaragua mission,
Greetings in the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ!
On August 13th, Matthew and Jennifer were recommissioned to Cuba by the Choonghyun Mission Church in Los Angeles. This is the same church that had commissioned them to Nicaragua back in 2005.
Currently, Cuba does not allow missionaries to live and do mission publicly there. Therefore, Matthew has been traveling in and out of Cuba to do mission from Dominican Republic since 2016. However, in order to conduct the Cuba mission work more effectively in terms of time and finance, the Juns have decided to relocate to Merida, Mexico, where they have found it to be a better location to focus on Cuba mission. The missions in Nicaragua and in Dominican Republic are still being funded and partnered by Hope Nicaragua and other missionaries in each of the respective countries. More detailed information can be found in below letter from Matthew and Jennifer.
We ask for your continued prayers and support as Matthew and Jennifer begin their Cuba mission, as well as continuing their Nicaragua and DR and perhaps Mexico mission.
Hope Nicaragua Board of Directors
May the peace and grace be with you, your family and the churches you serve.
While overseeing the Nicaraguan mission since 2005 and the Dominican Republic mission in the past year, I have been traveling in and out of Cuba since 2016. During my numerous visits to Cuba, I felt a strong calling for the Cuba mission and decided to focus primarily on Cuba as our next mission field. And after sharing my desire, the Choonghyun Mission Church in LA, who had first commissioned our family to Nicaragua back in 2005, graciously recommissioned us to Cuba on August 13th, 2017. We were filled with a great joy, thankfulness, and commitment for the new mission field. It reminded me of the first time we were sent out to Nicaragua in 2005. I felt a trembling heart for the Lord then and once again as we are commissioned to Cuba. It was a day filled with gratitude and hope.
There are three main areas of Hope Nicaragua mission work:
The first is the mission projects in Nicaragua. Even after we left Nicaragua in 2015, most of the mission projects there have been operating continuously and successfully. All mission projects have been under the leadership of either other missionaries and/or churches to serve the people of Nicaragua. Missionary Kim Kyu-hyun is leading the children's soup kitchen ministry;
the Westlake Hills Presbyterian Church in Austin, TX is fully running the ministry of women's Micro Loan program; the Indianapolis Korean Presbyterian Church is heading the scholarship program; and our mission coordinator, Ms. Denia, with the help of the local pastor at the Jehovah Jireh Church in El Paraiso, are maintaining the elementary school. The pastoral training program (IBLE), in cooperation with Pastor Kwon Il-Yeon and the local pastors, is successfully educating the future local pastors. Please pray that these mission projects in Nicaragua continue under God’s providence.
Secondly, Hope Nicaragua is overseeing the pastoral training ministry in the Dominican Republic that I served during my stay there this past year. A missionary training center (Centro de Capacitacion Pastoral) that I started with Missionary Colina from Venezuela is well on its way to serve the local pastors in DR.
The third mission focus of Hope Nicaragua is the pastoral training program in Cuba. Last year, as I was traveling to both Cuba and the Dominican Republic, I thought at first that I would do both missions. However, after a year of prayer and doing ministry in both countries, I felt my heart leaned towards Cuba more and more everyday and decided to fully focus on Cuba mission.
There are two reasons for such a decision. The first is the urgency in need for Cuba's ministry. Up until 2016, I visited Cuba for opportunities to start a pastoral training program. On one of these visits, the AFLEA Mission Organization asked me to serve the Iglesia de Cristo Denomination, which has 400 pastors without any ordination. Because of such a large scale of ministry, I need to be fully committed for this mission.
Secondly, we concluded that there is a lesser need for my direct involvement in the Dominican Republic ministry. Missionary Colina, as a native Spanish speaker and background in pastoral training, is more than capable of overseeing the program on his own.
Once Cuba was decided as our primary mission field, we needed to look for a location that was economically and strategically more favorable since we cannot yet reside in Cuba as missionaries. With its proximity to Cuba, half the airfare, and lower living costs, Merida, Mexico was the logical place for our residency. We also came to learn that Mexico, with less than 3% of the Protestant population, presents mission opportunities while residing there.
We are grateful for these new opportunities to participate in God’s work as we spread the gospel to Cuba and to other Latin American countries. Please pray for and with us as we embark on our new journey!
