I would like to start off by thanking all of you for the very generous Christmas gifts you sent.  You are a blessing to us! During the 2 years of Covid-19 our church remained completely free from any sickness until 2022 began.  The year started for us with 11 cases of Covid-19 in just 2 of our families.  Then we had five of our preschool students develop symptoms.  To continue reading the update from David Lewis, please click on the link below.

I have been delaying this letter to be able to make a couple of announcements.  However, things did not work out quite as hoped.  For over 10 years we have been involved in a project to make a new translation of the Bible in Korean language.  There are several versions that have been done in the past.  Most are poor translations from another translation such as the Chinese.  To continue reading the update from Rob Oetman, please click on the link below.

This is the time of the year that is most difficult for our military service members.  They must spend the holidays without their families.  Some have their wives and children here, but many do not.  All of them are separated from someone.  That makes a very difficult time of year.  That's were we come in.  We try to be parents, grandparents, brothers and sisters.  In other words we work to fill the void.  To continue reading the update from David Lewis, please click on the link below.

Recently, Eum Songmin and his wife Yoe Jiyoun visited us.  They were elementary students when we helped Songmin's father establish the Seoul First Baptist Church in 1999.  I had the privilege to conduct their wedding in 2016.  Today they live in Virginia with their two beautiful daughters.  Songmin works for the U.S. Department of Defense.  They are members of the Fairfax Baptist Temple.  To continue reading the update from Rob Oetman, please click on the link below.

Between the military rotations (PCS moves), Covid-19, and the anti-God mind set of so many people we are really down in attendance.  The handful of folks we have are great folks!  They are faithful, hardworking, loving people. Satan has used Covids-19 to attack churches in Korea.  We have been forced to close and go to online services several times now.  To continue reading the update from David Lewis, please click the link below.

We were so hoping that 2021 would prove to be a better year than 2020; however, it hasn't started off that way.  We started this year with our church being closed down again.  From just before Christmas until two weeks ago we were back to preaching online.  We have been able to open our church again however, only 10% of our seating capacity has been allowed to attend church.  This pestilence of Covid-19 needs to go away!

After spending 8 weeks  preaching online, it's been a huge blessing being back in the pulpit!  Our folks have been very faithful in attendance and in their giving.  I was truly blessed by our church during the 8 weeks we couldn't meet.  They faithfully joined the online services and they faithfully stopped by the buidling to give their tithes and offerings.   To continue reading the update from David Lewis, please click the link below.

July meant our month in America was over.  We arrived at the Huntsville Airport (that's Huntsville Alabama) just before 5 in the morning.  It was very good that we were early.  Our flight for that day was on-time however, our connecting flight in Seattle had been changed.  We now had a layover of 24 hours.  To continue reading the update from David Lewis, please click on the link below.

The COVID-19 fight continues!  Like most of you, we are dealing with the struggles of ministering in the midst of the pandemic.  Praise the Lord, things have improved here in Korea.  We can now have an attendance of 50 people for each service.  We have also been able to see our Korean folks come back to church!  To continue reading the update from Daviid Lewis, please click the link below.

The Corona virus has made things a little tougher, but we adapt and overcome.  Osan Air Base as well as all other U.S. military installations in Korea went into lock down mode.  No one could leave base and we couldn't go in.  Praise the Lord this only lasted 2 weeks.  To continue reading the update from David Lewis, please click the link below.

This year had an amazing beginning!  Since planting this church in 2014 we haven't had one single Korean Air Force person attend the church.  That is rather amazing since our church is located across the street from the Korean gate to the Air Base.  Starting in January we have had four young Korean Air Force Officers attending our services.

Since arriving on the mission field over 20 years ago, I have considered our ministry to be Christian Basic Training and Advanced Individual Training.  I spend much time teaching and preaching on things like holiness, separation, surrender, service, soul winning and missions.  It is important to me that when our people move on to other churches they will be soldiers of the corss and not sorry do nothings!  To continue reading the update from David Lewis, please click on the link below.

Judges 2:10 "And also all that generation were gathered unto their fathers: and there arose another generation after them, which knew not the LORD, nor yet the works which he had done for Israel."  The godly generation died, and a godless generation followed them.  We are living in a time when history seems to be repeating itself!  The generation of military people that we are trying to reach are a very ungodly and immoral society of people.  It seems that their only concern is pleasure and living for themselves.  To continue reading the update from David Lewis, please click on the [...]

Missionaries to the U.S. Military in South Korea I am truly sorry for being so behind on getting out a prayer letter.  Time sometimes just gets away from me.  We've had a pretty rought start to this year in a physical sense.  I started the year with Bronchitis that seemed like it was never going away...  Please click the link below to continue reading the update from David and Joy Lewis.
