Outgoing council president Peter ...

Outgoing council president Peter Hwang, pastor of First Korean Baptist of Philadelphia, told Baptist Press he hopes the council's work will be "a stepping stone for our next generation (second-generation Koreans)."
Hwang said the council has the dual responsibility of serving both first- generation Koreans and second-generation Koreans. There are about 750 to 800 first-generation Korean churches and 50 to 100 second-generation churches in the United States, he said.
Church planting is challenging as numbers of Korean immigrants have decreased, Hwang said. That combined with the aging of the population and the trend of short-term church members who may come to study in the United States for a few years, for example, and then return to Korea makes it difficult.
Hwang supported a bill that would nearly double funding for Korean council missions. The bill was defeated in a vote during Wednesday's business session. He presented his "Gideon 113" campaign which called for 300 churches to give $100 per month totaling a $300,000.

Jesus told Peter, "Feed my lambs." He asked Peter, first, this question, "Do you love me?" Peter replied, "Yes, Lord. You know I love you." Jesus proceeded to ask Peter twice more if he loved Him. Peter answered, "Yes" both times. Jesus replied, "take care of my sheep," and "feed my sheep" consecutively. Jesus told Peter this to allow him to redeem himself and to reinforce the message that Peter's charge was to take care of the less fortunate believers and those who did not know Jesus, of the lost and the unsaved.
What did Jesus mean when he commanded Peter to do these things? He meant for Peter and all disciples, or followers of Christ, to be the hands and feet of Jesus. He meant for us to meet the needs of the people.

Bishop Peter Joonsuk Hwang, pastor of the Korean Baptist Church of Philadelphia, said Korean Americans were often afraid to contact relatives.
"They want to see them, on one side, but then if they see the family members, they might have some difficulty with the government," he said.
The dream for Koreans, he said, is still reunification.
"That's our prayer. We are the only country in the world to be divided into two, even though we are one language, and one culture," he said.
"In what way we don't know," he said.
