Korea active in social projects

The now 90 years old Korean Christian Endeavor Union (K.C.E.U.) is very active in social projects. Last winter about 400 endeavorers provided 100.000 briquettes to needy people in the towns of Jaecheon, Daegu, Sooncheon, Busan and Seoul. Later the K.C.E.U. provided 1 million bottles of water to earthquake victims in Japan. In May a church was built in Chennai, India and in June the Spring Valley Church in Davao, on the Mindanao Island, Philippines, was consecrated. Both building projects were accompanied with food supply and educational programs. In August K.C.E.U. held the 86th Summer Leadership Seminar on Jeju Island. About 500 CE members and their families participated in the four days event and received "a great vision and grace" as per the report by Mr. Ko Tong-un, WCEU Vice-President. They held a seven days Prayer Meeting there as well. Recently a school was inaugurated in Kenya in connection with a Korean mission project complementing a church building they finished last year.
