Call for the Nations

We had a glorious graduation ceremony and send-off service of our 67 graduates who earned MA to PhD at the International Graduate School of Leadership (IGSL). Eunice and I, along with other faculty members, guests and friends, offered them tearful prayers and heartfelt blessings so that the nations will see God’s glory and experience transformation through their ministry. They were commissioned back to 14 different nations, namely Bangladesh, Bhutan, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines, Sri Lanka and USA. As you can see from the list, most of these sharpened leaders are returning to serve in the world areas that are traditionally closed to gospel and Christian ministry. Please pray for their work because we believe they can be instrumental in helping fulfill the Great Commission in our generation.

Over a year ago, Eunice and I began teaching full-time here at IGSL to train leaders for Asia and the rest of the world. We feel this is an extension of our previous works in Africa and South Korea. Ive taught a number of intercultural study classes, alongside of heavy-duty one-to-one mentoring ministry for a cluster of students. Eunice has been fervently serving as chaplain of a home school co-op center of children of IGSL students, ministering to both children and parents. It is always a joy to see their lives (aged 3 to 17) touched, changed and even called by our Lord at such young ages.

Indeed, were grateful for your prayers and supports. Without you, we couldnt have raised up Christian leaders who will, in turn, raise up more leaders in various parts of the world as 2 Timothy 2:2 commands us.

IGSL is a ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ International. Including us, all full-time IGSL faculty members are support-raising missionary professors. This tradition avails more scholarships for the Two-Thirds World leaders who could never come for accredited graduate level training without such opportunities. That’s why there is always a waiting list of applicants. Your generous giving makes it possible for us to stay on the field and keep teaching these elite leaders of the world. Gospel does change the world! And these leaders can, and will, take the gospel to the ends of the earth on our behalf. We do appreciate your ongoing partnership in this ministry.

Yours for the nations,
Dr. Paul Lee (& Eunice Jaeun)
