Kim will soon be ordained and commissioned as a missionary to El Salvador with International Ministries. She will be ordained to Christian ministry by the First Baptist Church of McMinnville and the American Baptist Churches of Oregon on Saturday, May 9, 2009.
Kim will serve in both regional and local ministry projects in Latin America and the Caribbean. Based in El Salvador, she will offer her experience and passion for community development and equipping local leaders as she partners with local grassroots leadership and development projects initiated by the Baptist Federation of El Salvador (FEBES).
She recently wrote of her first experience in a prayer labyrinth: In praying for my friends I discovered my own simple prayer request in the midst of the dizzying twists and turns of the labyrinth of life in transition. I pray that in the midst of the process I am faithful in laying my pleas and petitions before God, in keeping God as the steadfast center, and in giving thanks for the incredible ways that I discover God at work in and around me. I pray the same for you as you wind your way through this labyrinth we call life.
- Pray for God’s blessing on and provision for Kim as she begins her service as a missionary.
