Jubilee House, supported by the National Church Women’s Association of Mission and Service partner the Presbyterian Church in the Republic of Korea, works with vulnerable children, youth, women, and seniors by caring for body and soul, planting seeds of hope, and sharing the love of God. Child care is a priority for low-income, single-parent, and grandparent-headed families. The Green Dream Children’s Centre at Jubilee House meets that priority, including study support programs for older children. An innovative program has children from the centre visiting isolated seniors. The goal of all Green Dream’s programs is to help children and youth grow into happy, well-grounded, and community-oriented adults. The Women’s Centre of Jubilee House offers counselling and practical support to survivors of domestic violence to help them re-establish lives in the aftermath of trauma. The Sharing Mission Centre focuses on low-income seniors and child-headed households. With help from 290 Korean churches, in 2013 this centre supplied 543 households with traditional Korean kimchi (pickled cabbage). Says Jubilee’s Director the Rev Park Hee-Jin, “We always thank God for the support of The United Church of Canada. Your prayers and support make possible the miracles of sharing the community of God.” Our gifts for Mission and Service help to share the love of God in Korea. Please join me and continue to give generously.
Mighty and tender God, through our gifts for Mission and Service we respond to your call to mend the world.
