On February 10th, at 4:35 am, Pastor Ock Soo Park’s crew arrived in Buenos Aires airport in Argentina. After the Concert at the Congress, the last event scheduled for Peru, they took a night flight to Buenos Aires airport. Surrounded by the remnants of night atmosphere, they had to drive for about an hour to get to La Plata, where the World Camp was being held.
The first thing scheduled for Argentina was a meeting with Argentinean brothers and sisters at church. The meeting was arranged for about 20 brothers and sisters who had left church for a while then came back through last year’s World Camp.
Toward the end of the meeting, Pastor Park said, “I have a favor to ask of you. Next year, I will be 70 years old. Other than living a life for the Lord, there’s no meaning in life – living for my own self. God has given me indescribable amount of grace and blessings. Please, live for the Gospel.”
After Pastor Park’s sermon, continued the testimony from Pastor Young Gook Park. Pastor Young Gook Park shared with the brothers and sisters as he talked about Philip and Andrew – all year long in 2011, he lived with his own estimates, but as he purchased church coach bus and had cantata tour, God made him to walk on the path of burdens. Yet amongst such burdens, God bestowed grace upon him and helped him regardless of how he himself was.
