         Sara’s Family                   Adriana’s Family  Christian Ethics Practice Movement

Dear, Friends.

Hallelujah!!

How are you during this season of weather changes? 

Seeking a new life in the Lord’s love and grace, Rainbow Family is offering our Lunar new year greetings

Last month, we welcomed a new family member, 27-year-old single mother Sara and her 3-year-old daughter Penelope. Sara was born in California and grew up in a foster home after her parents divorced. She has no siblings and has always felt lonely and struggled to have hope. She was overjoyed to give birth to her daughter, but the baby’s father did not want them, and she became alone again. She spent nearly a year at the Orange County Rescue Mission, unable to work or go to school. She passed her GED and wants to continue studying at a university. 

The Rainbow Family Mission and I are praying to help her family. We ask for your sponsorship and prayers.

We introduce 43-year-old single mother Adriana and her 6-year-old daughter Mia. Adriana has made many mistakes in her life and spent more than 10 years in prison. She has other children besides Mia, but currently, Mia is the only child she can take care of. Seeing her working hard and trying to live a good life, we are reminded once again that a life in Christ can change her thoughts and future. We are doing our best to show that the love of Christians is more precious than anything in the world. Please help us. Thank you!!

Pastor Hyun Soo-il, the representative of the Christian Ethics Practice Movement, always helps the mission with all his heart. We respect his heart and passion for practicing the. We thank the Lord for the pastor and all the work done by the Christian Ethics Practice Movement. We believe that the Lord will bless all their work.

With the grace of the Lord and the prayers and material support of our sponsors, the Rainbow Family Mission, which was miraculously established, has become a true refuge. We ask you to become a co-worker through prayer and sponsorship so that many wounded and marginalized souls can be healed by the beautiful love of the Lord. Thank you!!

 

Ephesians 2:10

“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”

To the supporters who thank the Lord’s grace and serve your neighbors, I pray and bless that above your family, church, business, and ministry, I pray in Love the Lord’s grace and peace will always be with you. 

 

Because he lives.

Happy New Year!!

Dear friends,  Hallelujah!!

We, the Rainbow Family, who are grateful for the Lord’s infinite love and grace, offer our New Year’s bow as we welcome the new year.

Even this Christmas, we experienced the Lord’s love and blessings poured out through our unwavering sponsor, various churches and organizations, and all of you who are grateful. We give thanks for the Lord’s great and wide river-like grace and look forward to the Lord’s plan for us in 2024.

The Christmas event in 2023 started with the grace-filled sermon and praise worship of Pastor Joe ES Park of Il-shin Presbyterian Church, and it was the Lord’s abundant birthday party where we ate and drank delicious food prepared by the small group of Grace Church. We sincerely thank you.

For the past 20 years, as always, the victorious Rainbow Home graduates and their families, and over 60 struggling families in our neighborhood, came to receive gifts, but thanks to the great love and support of various churches and sponsors who helped us especially, no one went back without a gift. We praise the Lord who always bestows the miracle of the five loaves and two fish, and His ability and love. Hallelujah!!

Long-time sponsors, the Mission Community Church Rainbow group, brought us essential items for long-term use. How great a joy it is for those who have nothing. Thank you.

We sincerely thank Deacon Dong-gil Kim of Il-shin Presbyterian Church, who has been sponsoring school supplies and backpacks for neighborhood children every year without change. We shed tears of gratitude for the miraculous ability of heaven that we experience every Christmas.

This year, in particular, at the age of 11 GG came in with her mother Veronica became members of Rainbow family, lived in a mission home during their childhood, studied hard, entered college, rode bicycles, and even took buses on rainy days. But the Lord heard our prayers our CPA, Mr. Paul Joo, donated a wonderful car, which not only supports us, but all the family members are very happy and thankful to the Lord. We give all the glory to the good Lord who answers our prayers. Thank you, thank you.

Isaiah 61:3 “To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.”

We pray that the protection, hope, and peace of the Lord will always be with you who constantly provide to neighbors in need with outstretched arms. We bless that you will be filled with spiritual things of heaven and the fertile things of the earth.

                Merry Christmas!!

Dear Friends   Hallelujah!!

I hope you are well in this suddenly chilly weather. We, the Rainbow Family, who are pursuing a new life in the grace of the Lord and being healed by His love, send you our greetings. We sincerely thank you for the love that the living Lord has poured out and your generous prayers and support throughout 2023.

I would like to introduce a family that was sent to us last month: 26-year-old Maria, and her 6-year-old daughter Melody. Maria became a part of the Rainbow Family through a church referral while she was struggling with many difficulties, including losing her daughter due to her baby’s father’s violence, having trouble finding a place to live, and only having two days of work per week. She is very grateful to the Lord for being able to get her daughter back and for becoming a part of the Rainbow Family. We ask for your prayers and support for them. Thank you.

R.F.I. former chairman Lee Soo-in started the Thanksgiving help for the needy years ago, and every year the Lord sends precious people to continue it. This year, thankfully, Pastor Hyun Soo-il and his wife, Elder Oh Tae-gyun, and the Men’s and Women’s Missionary Society of Union Church prepared several turkeys and ingredients for a Thanksgiving meal full of love and care, which were generously distributed to many families for a warm and happy Thanksgiving. For those families who could not come due to lack of transportation, we delivered turkeys and side dishes. We sincerely thank you for your beautiful love and support.

On Saturday, December 16th at 11:00 a.m., an annual event will be hosted where gifts and meals are distributed at the Rainbow Home. We would like to invite our friends who work with us to celebrate the birth of Jesus and his great mercy and grace.  I sincerely thank you for your beautiful love and support as I experienced the miracle of heaven coming to earth. 

The Rainbow Family children are writing letters to the Lord exchanging gifts, I definitely do not want to disappoint them. Please help me so that I will be able to provide gifts for our RFI families and the families who have graduated our program in previous years. Thank you!!

Let your light shine before men, and let them see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven. Just as this verse states, let others see the father’s faithfulness and love through your works as you help us during this Christmas event. 

Luke 2:14  

“Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”

We pray and bless that the infinite joy of Christmas and the blessing of living hope will be abundant in our supporters’ families, businesses, and Ministries.

         Chella’s Family                   Won Foundation               2023 Oct Walkathon

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Dear Friends,

Hallelujah!!

I hope and pray all is well with you and yours.

Living in the grace of the Lord with a grateful heart, Rainbow Family offers our monthly greetings.

Last month, we welcomed a new family: 43-year-old Chella, born in California, her 9-year-old daughter Amanda, and her 5-year-old son Richard. Chella is a sister who has a masculine personality but always tries to live with a smile. When she was praying in tears without knowing where to go after being kicked out of the Orange Mission because of her unusual children, the Lord allowed her to meet someone who knew the contact information of the Rainbow Family home, and she was able to enter the Rainbow Family Home. 

The father of the children came out of prison and disappeared, and it was too hard for her to educate the children alone. The children are very unusual, but we can’t just scold them because they grew up in a bad environment, so we are embracing them with love.

We ask for your prayers and support for Chella’s family.

Representatives of the Won Foundation, Deaconess Won Mina and Assistant Park, brought delicious fried chicken and salad, French fries and had a joyful and happy time together over a delicious meal. 

We sincerely thank you for your prayers and loving support and bless you with all our hearts.

On October 28th, there was a Walkathon event. Pastor Hyun Soo Il, who has been serving and not sparing support for a long time, made a banner and brought it with Elder Oh Tae Kyun. The Rainbow Family walked safely back 50 blocks with one heart of gratitude and had a good time together while eating a delicious lunch. We would like to express our special thanks to all of you who have become sponsors of the Walkathon.

 Philippians 4:6-7

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

I pray and bless that the grace and the blessing of peace will always be present in your families, churches, businesses, and ministries.

       Brianna Family                     Veronica                   Immanuel Baptist Church
Dear friends

Hallelujah!!

How are you during this season of harsh weather changes? 

Striving to live by the Word and the Lord’s grace, Rainbow Family is offering our monthly greetings.

We want to introduced 28-year-old single mother Brianna and her cute 3-year-old daughter Lia.

Brianna was born in Orange County, spent several years in prison for crimes related to drug addiction and still has to go back and forth to court, but she has a heart that wants to know the love of the Lord, so if we give her the opportunity and time, she may become a new person. Please pray and support us.

Veronica has been rehabilitated with her two children at the rainbow home for over a year and has been independent for quite a while since she was hired at the department store. Last week, I met her still working at the same place. I couldn’t stop crying with gratitude for her. We cried together for a long time holding each other. Seeing her working hard to raise her children, I felt like I saw the Lord’s happy face. Thanking the Lord, she said that she could not have been healed if it were not for Rainbow Family Home. Once again, thank you sincerely for your prayers and support for the ministry.

We sincerely thank you for all your big and small donations and prayers that you keep us in your heart and give us. We bow our heads in gratitude for the love, prayers, and material support of all of you who are working together with us, church, and many men’s and women’s ministry groups, and we give all glory to our faithful Lord.

The members of Immanuel Baptist Church’s Rainbow small group, who have been long-time supporters, visited us and we had a very beautiful time of fellowship. Thank you for their prayers and support.

James1:27

“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans

and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.”

I pray that the power of resurrection of our Lord Jesus will be with you, your family, and your church always and God bless you!

          Walk-A-Thon 2023       Gigi Hight School Graduation       Rev. Park’s Birthday
Dear Friends, 

Hallelujah!!

I hope and pray all is well with you and yours.

Living in the grace of the Lord with a grateful heart, Rainbow Family offers our monthly greetings.

On May 27th, we had our annual Walk-A-Thon. A long-time volunteer of our ministry Pastor Su-il Hyun, elder Moo Kyung Choe and her small group, and families who graduated early came with donations and food. With a unified goal, we walked 50 blocks. After walking safely back home, we had a delicious lunch and a wonderful time together. We thank you from bottom of our harts for all the walk-a-thon sponsors.

I am grateful to say that I have good news to share. Veronica’s daughter Gigi has graduated from Western High School. 7 years ago, 11year old Gigi joined our Rainbow Family with her mom and her 2 younger siblings. She had a talent for art and without any troubles graduated high school. What is even more amazing and thankful is that she is the first of four generations to graduate from high school. Veronica shed tears of joy as she experienced the Lord’s grace. 

Our precious Rev. Yoon-Seok Park, who lived with Rainbow Family for 20 years and endured many inconveniences without compensation, Now married and turned 52 on May 3th. 

We pray that the grace of the Lord will always be with him and he’s family.

I believe that the Lord gave new lives to those who were marginalized in society. He gave them optimal conditions to reign victorious for Lord’s glory. I give all the thanks and the glory to our loving Lord. As I work in this ministry, I wholeheartedly believe that your hard work opens the doors of heaven and allows for His will to be done on earth as it is in heaven. Thank you.

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with

thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

      Stephanie’s Family                      Easter                    Deacon Sung Won Yoon

 

Dear Friends

Hallelujah!!

I pray with all my heart that you may have health and peace in the grace of the Lord who transcends all circumstances. Healing in the Lord’s grace and enjoying the freedom in the Word, 

Rainbow Family offers our monthly greetings with overflowing gratitude.

I would like to introduce 18 year old Stephanie and her daughter who recently turned 2. Stephanie was born in New York and moved with her mom to California when she was 6. There she met the baby’s father who was a drug addict and a violent person. The baby’s father ended up in prison and her daughter was taken away from her by Child Protection Services. She was living alone until she heard of our Rainbow Family Ministry and became part of our family. Although she is young, she has a strong determination to live with her daughter again. She is able to see her daughter once a week and when we see them together, we see how joyful they are. Seeing their happiness when they are together pushes our Rainbow Family to pray earnestly for them. We ask our supporters to join us in prayer. Thank you!!

We have met up with a long supporter of our ministry, Deacon Sung Won Yoon, from Torrance Good Shepherd Church and discussed ministry. I am so grateful to see her practice her neighborly love in her life.

For Easter, the mothers hid eggs and gifts inside and outside the house, saying that the person who finds it can claim it as his or hers. Likewise, they taught the children that those who call upon Jesus and seek his kingdom can possess heaven.  I am thankful that the Lord became hope for those who do not have hope and confidence in this world. But above all, I praise the Lord for providing eternal life through Jesus Christ. 

Although there are many churches that go on missions with large expenses and travel vast distances, Rainbow Family focuses on making the United States a crime free society for our communities. When I think about our supporters who donate and pray for us, I am so thankful. I believe that the great blessings of the Lord will always be with you as well. 

On Saturday, May 27th at 10am, our annual Walk-A-Thon will be hosted. We will depart from our Ministry at Buena Park and walk 50 blocks around the area. We are planning on using the money to help the costs of sustaining Rainbow Family. If you could write a donation form and send it. we will gratefully use it for the ministry. 

We sincerely thank the Lord and our supporters that we are able to make our ministry centered on the Word of God without receiving government subsidies. Praise the Lord11

Isaiah 41:10

“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

To the supporters who thank the Lord’s grace and serve your neighbors, I pray and bless that above your family, church, business, and ministry, the Lord’s resurrection power that makes all things good and an army of angels will always be by your side. 

Because He lives,

        Marissa’s Family                 Won Foundation                  Sarah’s Family

“Praise the Risen Lord!!”

Dear Friends, 

Hallelujah!!

I hope and pray all is well with you and yours. The abundantly sprouting buds and the blooming flowers seem to be joining us in the praise of our Lord’s resurrection.

About a year ago, Marissa joined our family with her daughter and gave birth to her son while she was with us. She then moved to San Diego to live with her children’s father. However as he was using drugs, complications occurred and we have received her as she decided to join our ministry again. We ask for prayers and donations for her new journey. Thank you.!!

I had lunch with Mina Won who has been a director of Won Foundation for 20 years and an avid supporter of our ministry. She is always extending her hand and supporting us with her monthly donations to our ministry. I pray and bless her as she continues to be a blessing to us. 

I would like to introduce a new family 21 year old single mother Sarah, 2 year old daughter Ally, and 4 month old Lavender. Sarah shared that she wasn’t able to experience a normal childhood due to her parents’ drug addictions. The father of her children was also a drug addict and left their family due to his addiction problems. Sarah moved around from shelter to shelter until she was introduced to Rainbow Family and became a part of our family. We ask for many prayers and donations for Sarah as she is putting aside her life of pain and looking forward to a new life in the Lord’s love. Thank you.!! 

At this complicated and heartbreaking time, the Lord is protecting us as we set ourselves apart from the world through prayer and faith. Even during these times, I realize the Lord’s providence as he allows his people to keep their faith and serve their neighbors. I give thanks as I hope for a victorious life in Him.

1Peter1:3    

“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,”

To the supporters who thank the Lord’s grace and serve your neighbors, I pray and bless that above your family, church, business, and ministry, the Lord’s resurrection power that makes all things good and an army of angels will always be by your side. 

Because He lives,
