At first glance, Korean and Zambian cultures don’t share many similarities. But International Mission Board missionaries Daniel and Grace Kim noticed the commonalities. Originally from South Korea but living in the United States for over 15 years, the Kims moved to Zambia in 2000.

Today the Kims host student missionaries from the Korean Foreign Mission Board who serve alongside them. These students relate well to the Kims because of their similar cultural background. And like the Kims, they have assimilated into Zambian culture well because of the similarities of this African nation and their Asian nation.

“We are so happy to see this movement,” the Kims said. “The Holy Spirit has really opened doors for the students and is working through them. They are very hard working and ready to do whatever it takes.”

The Cooperative Program takes the Gospel to the nations and the neighborhoods. Your financial support through the Cooperative Program influences today’s missionaries as they influence those who will come after them.

Pray for the Kims as they continue to minister in Zambia and for their continued partnership with Korean students coming to Zambia to share the Gospel.
