Successful Conclusion of the 2022 Good News Mission Central and South American Ministers' Retreat

300 Central and South American ministers held a retreat at Good News Peru Church

From November 14th, the ‘2022 Central and South American Ministers’ Retreat’ was held in Lima, the capital of Peru, for 3 nights and 4 days. The main lecturer, General Director of Good News Mission, Pastor Min-Cheol Lim (Good News Busan Daeyeon Church), Central American Headquarters Pastor Jin-Sung Kim (Good News Daegu Church), Pastor Bong-Chun Lee (Good News Suseong Church), and Pastor Geon-Ha Shin (Good News East Busan Church) joined the retreat.

About 300 Korean missionaries and local ministers from 17 countries, including Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Dominican Republic, and Uruguay, participated.

On the evening of the 14th, the meeting of ministers began with Good News Lima Church Missionary Cho Seong-joo, Peru serving as moderator. The main lecturer, Pastor Min-cheol Lim, gave the background of the meeting, saying, "Pastor Ock Soo Park arranged this Central and South American ministers' meeting so that Korean missionaries and local pastors of the Good News Mission can work together without any gap."

He continued, “Because we have been called as evangelists, there should be no gap between us through the exchange of faith. It is natural for local pastors to be grateful to the missionaries who preached the gospel, but when it comes to spiritual things, they must go beyond gratitude. Whoever God works for must be exalted, and anything that is caused by man must be discarded. We must not tolerate the flesh, and through this retreat, we want to have intensive fellowship so that our spiritual capabilities can grow.”
