유세준 전도사 


Greeting to everyone in the name of Jesus Christ! With 2014 just around the corner, I can't help but to reflect and thank God for all that He has done for our ministry. As a community of Jesus Christ, there has been excitement, newness, as well as challenge which has brought forth personal growths. It's been truly a blessing to witness how God has touched upon the lives of every member of our congregation.

 

I believe that as a community of Jesus Christ, we're going on a treasure hunt. Though we're not digging holes around the church searching for buried gold, we're searching for God's treasure. For God, we are the treasure as stated in Deu. 14:1-2, "You are the children of the Lord your God... It is you the Lord has chosen... to be his people, his treasured possession." As a ministry, we continually strive to be the treasure hunters so that people can truly shine as they come to know God. But it is our desire that we don't remain as the treasure hunters. We are also called to be the care-takers of God's treasures. We are called to tend God's beloveds here in our congregation with the love and care we show one another through fellowship, looking out for the sick, teaching Christian faith, and praying for one another. As a ministry, we desire to become the agents of God's loving transformation for the community, not just within the church, but for the community around us. By the empowerment of the Holy Spirit, we are slowly making this into our reality.

 

First Timothy 6:18 exhorts us "to do good, to be rich in good works, generous, and ready to share, thus storing up... the treasure of a good foundation for the future." We believe that our treasure is to do God's will by loving God and loving God's treasured people. This is what Camarillo English Ministry endeavors to achieve as young vibrant group of youths/colleges students gather on Fridays and Sundays in prayer and worship.

 

One of the blessings we have experienced this summer was the Vacation Bible School. For the first time, Camarillo KUMC and Oxnard KUMC worked together to organize a joint VBS. The VBS was held at the facility of the Oxnard church. It was a wonderful experience as two United Methodist churches worked side-by-side for the common good of the churches and the community. There were 20 children and 20 volunteering adults that came to participate in this event. Our goal for the next year's VBS is to reach out to the children of the surrounding community as a way to carry out God's love to the world. To continue the momentum, not too long after the VBS, we organized a joint summer retreat for the youths/college groups of Oxnard and Camarillo churches. This retreat turned out to be a life-changing experience for many of the youths.

 

I want to give special thanks to Rev. Sang Yung Lee and Rev. Min-Kyu Park (Oxnard KUMC) as well as many teachers and volunteers for their generous support to make this collaboration a reality. It is my fervent wish that Camarillo English Ministry be the "salt and light" of the world through its efforts to spread God's love to the community. As a ministry, we continually strive to make God's love more present as we build one another in the gospel of Jesus Christ. It is my prayer that every member of Camarillo English Ministry genuinely strive to become men and women whom God can trust to carry out what is on His heart. In order to make this happen, I want to humbly ask you for your love and support.

 

In Christ, 

Phillip Yu
