Korean Diaspora Ministry

Contact – Chul-Hwa Chung

Mr + Mrs ChungI completed translating the New Testament into the Kuot language of Papua New Guinea in 2002. Frankly, the blessing wasn’t only for the Kuot people but especially for myself as a translator and for my wife as a literacy specialist. We have experienced His amazing presence and timely guidance on the way to completion: ‘God loves Bible translators as much as the unreached.’ This thrilling experience drives us further to mobilize bible translators from among the Korean Diaspora.
