1 Great Opportunities & Great Challenges


Dear Friends,
There are so many exciting
things to share in this letter!
God has been working in an
amazing way. Since I last wrote,
we have completed winter camp
as well as our annual missions
conference.
Winter Camp
Opportunity
This was our
second winter camp
at WOLBI Jeju. I
wish I could give
you a glimpse of
what goes on here
during camp. There
is an amazing
energy surge as we
all shift into overdrive camp mode.
It is such a neat
feeling to have
every single staff
member and
student on campus
focused on one
missionseeing
campers come to know Christ
and to grow closer to Him.
We have 3 weeks of camp.
At each camp we had about 45
campers attend. With staff and
students, there are approximately 110 people on our 6-acre
property. Every nook and
cranny was filled
This year we saw 7 campers
trust Christ; 24 gain assurance
of their salvation; 4 devote
their life to full-time Christian

service and the majority go


forward each week at the
campfire to give God control of
their life.
Post Camp Opportunity
Camp was such a success

that the churches who attended


are asking us to help them begin
Bible Clubs! Within the next
month, we hope to have 3
different church groups bring
their teens to our property so
that we can show them how to
lead a WOL Bible Club. Then,
Lord willing, they will continue
this in their local church with
the help of our WOLBI
students. Exciting potential!
Steve and the WOL Korea
Bible club staff are working now

Feb 2015

on lessons to give to the


churches. These answer the big
questions that teens are asking,
likeIs the Bible really true?
If God is so great, why is there
suffering in the world? etc. etc.
Missions Conf.
Opportunity
This is probably
the most important
event we have all
year because it is
the whole reason
WOLBI Jeju was
established--to be a
launching pad into
the rest of Asia.
It was a great
time. Alex Konya,
the European coordinator for WOL
(also served for
many years with
WOL Hungary), was
our keynote
speaker. I am
always amazed at
the quality and
passionate speakers that are
part of the WOL team. Our
students were totally engaged
as Al preached.
We currently have 29
students and at the invitation
time, 11 students committed
themselves to full-time
missionary service unless the
Lord stops them. Praise the
Lord!!!!! Steve has been meeting
individually with all of our
students to talk through their

My life is but a weaving between my Lord and me; I do not choose the colors, He works steadily, Oft times He weaves sorrow and I in foolish pride; forget that He sees
the upper and I the underside. Not until the loom is silent and the shuttles cease to fly; will God unfold the pattern and explain the reason why. For the dark threads are
as needful in the weavers skillful hand; as the threads of gold and silver in the pattern He has planned.

next step after WOLBI Jeju.


Please pray for us as we follow
up with the 11 students in
particular.
One unique point about our
confer-ence this year was the
addition of some teaching about
faith promise giving. Al taught
that in Hungary and so we asked
him to do that in the chapels
leading up to the weekend. Last
year we gave $2500. This year
our staff and students
committed before
the Lord to give
$6000 by faith
to missions by July
10, 2015!!!! The
three projects are:
Shipping gift
Bibles to Jeju
to distribute
to Chinese
tourists
The
production of
the remaster
Jesus Film
DVD in
Chinese
Camper
scholarships
for WOL
Ukraine to
bring war zone children
to camp
We know that you have been
praying for us and that each of
you have a vested interest in
the ministry of WOLBI Jeju.
We wanted to let you know
about the missions conference

so that you could rejoice with


us.
Our Greatest Challenge
We are in great need of
your prayers right now. Our coworkers in the ministry of
WOLBI Jeju are John & Jean
Hawkins. God has sent a lot of
short-term staff to work with
us each year, but John & Jean
are the only other full-time
staff that have labored with us

from the beginning till now.


They have been weight-bearing
pillars in the work with us.
In November they returned
to the US for a short furlough
and planned to be back as soon
as camp was finished. While
there, John had to have two
open heart surgeries which have
left their return date for this

spring still undetermined, yet


they are eager to return to Jeju
ASAP! Thus far God has
supplied substitute help for
them in an amazing way that was
planned before any of us knew
John needed surgery. PTL!
One challenge is that our
family is required to return to
the US this spring (Steve for 4
weeks and the kids and me for 2
months). These plans have
assumed that John and Jean
would be here. As
you can imagine, we
are walking in the
dark right now and
very unsure of the
details for this
spring.
One thing we do
know for sure is that
God is not in the
dark. However, we
need your prayers to
continue to cling to
that truth and to
know how to move
forward. Please pray
for Gods provision in
this time of need.
Please pray for John
& Jean. Not only is
this a serious
physical challenge but it is
emotionally excruciating for
them. Their hearts are here!
It is so good to know that
you are our partners in this
work! We know we can count on
your prayers!
