I met with Pastor JongRak Lee today who oversees the Baby Box ministry caring for abandoned babies in South Korea. It's been awesome to see how social media has played a key role in getting the word out globally on the needs of these children and the incredible ministry Pastor Lee has been doing for the past 4 years. And within these four short years, God has used this man to help rescue and protect the lives of 375 babies. Without a doubt, just the trailer for the documentary The Drop Box, directed by Brian Ivie, has been instrumental in gathering global support for these precious babies.
I asked Pastor Lee for an update on their situation today and here are some current prayer requests he has and some simple ways we can support this ministry.

Currently, they are not taking anymore volunteers as there has been a huge flow of support in recent months. But if you do have a heart for the orphan and would like to offer your time and services, here are some other organizations you can look into supporting within Korea:
Please continue to pray that every orphan will one day have a family to call their own in this nation ... soon. For our God "sets the lonely in families." (Psalm 68:6) Thank you.
"Learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow's cause."
Isaiah 1:17 ESV
Here is my interview with Family Life Today on orphan care and the Korean Church that was broadcast on August 30, 2013. Please pray for God to move in the hearts of the Church in Korea to begin caring for the orphans within our nation. May they see and understand the beauty of adoption and the Gospel.
This Thursday and Friday, August 29 and 30, Family Life Today and Hope for Orphans will be broadcasting two special shows focusing on justice and orphan care. We are praying that more churches will gain a vision for orphan care and realize how vital this is to the Gospel message and the Gospel life that we called to live. Please pray that God would use these broadcasts to bring hope and homes to the orphans in our cities and around the world.
