Ministry Trip to Jeju, South Korea

Paul recently made the long trip to Jeju Island, South Korea, where he had the
privilege of teaching the book of James at the Word of Life Bible Institute
situated there. His class included students from Korea, Taiwan, Japan, Turkey,
South Africa, Brazil, and the US. He was also able to catch up with our former
colleagues from Hungary who are now serving in South Korea, Filipe and
Carol Santos.

One of Paul’s favorite joys in ministry is the opportunity to influence young

people around the world through WOL’s ten international teaching sites. This past year Paul taught in Hungary,
Canada, Korea, Ukraine, and Uganda, in addition to his regular teaching schedule in New York.
