MISSIONS THROUGH UNITY
Member Care Retreat 2023
It's our favorite time of year again at Footstool Missions Center as we gear up for our 7th annual Member Care Retreat! This year's fundraising goal is $20,000. Whether you can donate $5 or $100, every bit makes a difference to our missionary friends serving in the 10/40 window!
This is why your donation matters:
95% of the unreached people in the world live in the 10/40 window but only 4% of missionaries serve in this window. Missionaries serving in this area work tirelessly but can be burnt out from the scope of the work, are often under-resourced and feel forgotten and undervalued.
To address this need, Footstool is hosting our seventh annual member care retreat for missionaries serving in the 10/40 window. This is a free retreat and will be held from January 4 - January 7, 2023 here in Korea. We will be taking the missionaries and their families to a retreat site outside of Seoul and we will have plenary sessions, full childcare, prayer sessions, professional counseling, hair stylists, manicures and more to serve and minister to those serving overseas.
Please join us in supporting those on the front lines of missions work to receive some rest, relaxation, and restoration!

Located in Chiang Mai, Thailand, the Agape Home for babies with HIV/AIDS opened in May 1996 as a response to the plight of children impacted by the spread of HIV/AIDS across Thailand.
Many of the children who come to the Agape Home to live are, or are at risk of being, HIV positive. Many of them have already lost their parents to AIDS, and there are no other options for their care.
Agape Home provides a loving family for 100+ children aged 0-21 yrs.
Our services include:
- Nikki's Place - Agape Home: orphanage for Thai children with HIV/AIDS.
- Project Lek: at-home assistance for HIV+ children living in impoverished conditions.
- Jarawee Village: family homes for our older children living with HIV/AIDS.
Soo Jung Pak
God had called me to Korea with a heart and vision for a reunified Korea in 2014. Since then, He has opened many opportunities and experiences mostly in SK, but also in NK as well. I've worked with NGO's with a NK focus, with domestic and field missionaries, alongside other churches and have also worked in various settings with South Koreans of all age groups and socioeconomic statuses. I also feel called as an intercessor for this country and also the Church here. I've been mentoring and counseling Korean and expat sisters and brothers. I will be continuing to partner with churches and organizations to equip and raise up leaders and future workers, as well as prayer movements.

Women's Hope Center
"ONE WOMAN & BABY AT A TIME"
Our mission is to see every life valued from conception and every exploited woman in Korea free, healed and empowered.
Thus, we seek to provide:
1) Crisis counseling, addressing physical, emotional, and
2) Long-term community, housing, and opportunities to acquire education and job training
3) Safe and dignified alternative employment through our developing social enterprise
Located in South Korea, Women’s Hope Center (WHC) is a registered non-profit organization that is wholly dependent on the faithful partnership of donors like you.
We seek to reach women at the moment when they first find out they are pregnant and have no one to turn to for help. Most of these young women reach us via our online chat at www.whckorea.org (Korean client outreach), making our reach national. We pick them up from motels or from bus stations. Others are referred to us by NGOs, government-run shelters (e.g. Pohang Family Center) and local churches (e.g.Jusarang Church, "Baby Box").
We run a crisis pregnancy center (the first of its kind in this nation) and "safe homes" (apartments in a community) known collectively as the "HOUSE OF HOPE."
Our clients include women escaping the sex industry (pregnant or not), teen runaways including those who are running away from family trying to force an abortion, aged-out orphans who have been surviving on their own by selling their bodies and young unwed mothers. We do not discriminate between unwed, married and divorced women. We do not discriminate between nationals and foreign nationals (e.g. sex-trafficked, bartered brides). The average age of our clients is 19 years old.
Your partnership in this essential, life-saving and life-transforming ministry is deeply appreciated. Thank you so much.
ELM (English Leadership Ministry)
ELM (English Leadership Ministry) provides 1:1 English tutoring classes, leadership training and mentoring opportunities to university students living in Seoul. Our main goal is to empower and to cultivate global leaders through education and strategic partnerships with local and international organizations. “ELM” tree is native to Northern part of Korean Peninsula and is one of the strongest trees. It's bark is used for many tools. They uproot and grow well in multiple types of soil as long as they are given the proper amounts of water, sunlight, and shade…just like people, when given the right tools, can be adaptable and grow well in a variety of different lands.
ELM(English Leadership Ministry)의 핵심 목적은 제자 삼는 것이며, 우리 학생들이 그들의 삶 속에서 주님께서 원하시는 목적을 바라보고, 알게 하는 것입니다. 그 일을 위해 ELM은 서울에 사는 탈북민 대학생들을 대상으로 영어수업과 멘토링(신앙과 삶)을 제공하는 사역을 하고 있습니다. “ELM" 나무(느릅나무)는 한반도의 북쪽에서 자생하는 나무로, 가장 강한 나무 중 한 종류라고 합니다. 나무껍질은 많은 도구를 만드는 데 사용된다고 합니다. ELM 나무(느릅나무)는 충분한 양의 물과 햇빛 그리고 그늘만 주어지면 여러 종류의 토양에서도 뿌리를 내리고 잘 자란다고 합니다. 이것은 사람도 동일합니다. 적절한 환경과 상황이 주어졌을 때, 사람들은 다른 지역과 문화 속에서도 잘 적응하며 성장할 수 있습니다. 탈북한 ELM 학생들에게도 영어수업과 멘토링은 한국의 또래 친구들 사이에서 주님의 제자로 자신들에게 주어진 잠재력과 재능을 최대한 발휘할 수 있는 값진 플랫폼이 됩니다.

Our Mission is to pursue God and the passions of His heart as we cherish the cross and finish the mission.

Ivan & YiRang
God has opened many doors for me and my wife to be in Seoul and serve in ministry. I have been a full time footstool staff member since the beginning of June and YiRang joined in mid November. We feel called to this city for the next couple of years to serve its people and the ones that are calling this place a temporary home.
Without a doubt, God has been moving in our lives the past couple of years in the midst of much changes to our family. In this particular season, God has opened up a door for me to serve not only the city of Seoul but missionaries all over the world especially in the 10/40 window. I am excited to see how serving in the Footstool team will continue to mold and shape our family’s heart for missions.
Ryan and Alana Smith
Alana and I are excited to be serving in Korea again as God has made it a very personal invitation by opening doors for our us to serve where our passions thrive. We trust the Lord's calling on our lives and leading for us to move overseas to serve the people of Asia and we are confident of the deep and personal ministry He will do in and through the Smith's! We believe that serving with Footstool's dynamic team and unique mission will be an unforgettable time of our lives for the Kingdom.
Juri & Joe Park
In 2013, God led my husband, Joe, away from a 13 year career he had been working to build, and called him into pastoral ministry. He currently serves as an associate pastor at Jubilee Church. This was obviously a life-altering change for our entire family in so many ways, and we have really learned to trust in the Lord in every area of our lives. In 2017, the Lord allowed me an opportunity to serve, not necessarily only as a pastor's wife, but also through my own unique gifts by allowing me to serve at Footstool Missions Center. We are thankful to the Lord everyday for how He provides every need for our family, which also includes our three children; Joanna (12), Juel (6), and Juno (5).
Would you please consider partnering with our family as we live out our lives in complete service to our Lord through the love of our neighbors? Please consider supporting us through your prayers, your friendship, and if God has placed it on your heart, through financial means as well.
Thank you and God bless you!
THE CO$T OF PLEASURE
JUSTICE 117 FILMS was established to explore and reveal the unfathomable circumstances that exploit the voiceless and the vulnerable. We exist to provide a platform for these courageous individuals who are willing to share their compelling stories in efforts to educate, inspire and motivate radical change in our community, if not the world.
Our next project is SLAVERY IN SILICON VALLEY, a documentary about girls and women being trafficked in the richest region in the world.
Humanitarian Workers Fundraiser
As we are all aware, there are those in our world who dedicate their life to help those in need in challenging places. Unfortunately for many of these humanitarians, they are not able to get the care they need themselves to continue their work well and in good health. Therefore, this fundraiser's proceeds will be designated to assist basic medical costs for people doing humanitarian work in these underresourced locations to give them the relief they need.
Member Care Counseling Services
Footstool offers counseling services to those serving in ministry in the 10/40 Window. Donations to this project help to cover the cost of counseling services provided.
Suggested donations are $40/1 hour session. If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We believe that unity in the body of Christ is, and needs to be, the main catalyst for missions. The synergy created through Kingdom partnerships is both invaluable and necessary to God’s mission in our world today. We therefore seek to serve as a platform to bring churches and Christian organizations, who have a shared investment in making disciples of those in the 10/40 window, together give glory to God through our unity but to also do better work than we could ever do alone.
