        Bella,s Family             Sung Joon Ku and MOM           Maranatha prayer group

 Dear friends,

Hallelujah!!

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

Trying our best to live by the word and under the Lord’s grace, Rainbow Family offers our monthly greetings.

 Bella, who has opened her heart to us and to the Lord, has been with us for the past 1year and 6 months.

She has been attending Cypress College where she majors in Social Studies Through her hard work and dedication, she received good grades. A professor who noticed her efforts introduced her to a job. Now she has a jab and is still continuing to take classes. As she was free from drug addiction for more than a year, we gained the confidence to recommend her to the state Housing. Upon receiving an apartment for her and her four children, they have move on thanking the Lord, Steel coming every Sunday to have church service with us. Because of loving friends like you, we were able to reap such beautiful fruits.

We are genuinely thankful for all the donations, both big and small, and the prayers that you have provided us with. We bow our head in thanksgiving for the cooperation of various churches, prayers and love from various ministries, and the material donations. I give all the glory to the living and faithful Lord.

 Sung Joon, who when was Elementary student he came to Volunteer one summer at the Rainbow Home, has already gone to 11th grade. He shared that the love he felt from our Rainbow Family is something that is always in his memories. Sung Joon, who likes being creative, used his gift to design T-shirts. He then gave us the funds as a donation that he raised from selling the shirts. I am grateful for his beautiful heart.

  I have recently met again with the Beautiful ladies from Maranatha prayer group. During Christmas when they showered our children with gifts. In our fellowship, we decided to continually work hand and hand for our neighbors in need. I believe that the holy spirit that resides in these beautiful women will be put to great use for the Kingdom. Hallelujah!!

 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!

Dear Friends

Hallelujah!!!

The Magpie New Year’s Day is yesterday. Our New Year’s Day is today’ (Korean Lunar Song)

How are you doing in the midst of harsh weather changes?

Indebted in love and pursuing a new life in the Lord, Rainbow Family offers our monthly greetings.

An old friend of ours, Assistant Pastor Chu Ji Hye along with Rve. Byeong Noh Jung and members of Saeil church, have brought gifts and donations to our Rainbow Family. We prayed for the cooperation of many for the Lord’s will as we parted ways. I believe that the Lord will abundantly fill their stretched arms and I am forever grateful for their love.

Our Rainbow Family kids who have been studying tirelessly through virtual learning have become restless as they desire to run outside with their friends. And as they can’t go out, they have felt very frustrated and trapped. Just as I was feeling sorrowful for their situation, young volunteers from IMCF group have gathered money and have provided few of our kids with bicycles. With their helpful start and with the donations of our supporters, we were able to provide each kid with a bike. The children are very happy as they get to release their energy and frustrations. I bow my head in thanksgiving to all our supporters’ love and help.

I would like to genuinely thank deacon Grace Park and our supporters who have provided our Rainbow Family love and encouragement as they are growing and maturing both spiritually and physically.

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, the Lord’s grace, protection, and peace will always be with you.

Happy New Year!!

Dear friends

Hallelujah!!

 Anticipating the New Year and thankful for the Lord’s abounding love, Rainbow Family is offering our greetings.

 Due to faithful supporters and various church groups, we were able to experience the expansive and river like love of Christ. We are genuinely looking forward to the Lord’s plan for the coming year 2021.

 For our 2020 Christmas event, Pastor David Lee from Grace Bible Church started us off with grace abounding praises and a moving sermon. We beautifully ended with Pastor Jung Chan Kim prayer of blessing. Unlike the previous 18years, we unexpectedly had about 60 guests and victorious families who had already graduated from the program and families that wanted to be a part of the season’s love and warmth. Despite having a lot of guests, not a one person returned home without a gift and we enjoyed the loveliest Jesus birthday feast. We praise the Lord who is always able to provide miracles like the five fish and two loaves. Hallelujah!!

 Throughout this year, the members of various churches who are our friends, pastors, supporters, and organizations have continuously shown us their love through their faith and prayers. Their support has provided Rainbow Family members and neighbors in need with the living hope of the Lord. As I remember all the blessings that were bestowed upon us, I promise that I will do my best to proclaim the Gospel, and I bow my head and thank everyone from the bottom of my heart.

 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 our supporters 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.

For most of the year in 2020, I have been forgetting what it was to live in the norm, but I am grateful and joyous when I am reminded of the Lord’s unchanging grace. Our Rainbow Family was able to spend a peaceful day full of love with hearty meals with our family bound in the love in Christ.

A long friend of ours and supporter Missionary Grace Park along with some her nurses came and gave our Rainbow Family members flu shots. Not only did she offer some medical services, she prayed for Rainbow Family as well.

We are very grateful for their love and volunteer work.

Bella, who has been part of our family for a year, is currently attending Cypress College.

Ryan was still able to spend the birthday with lots of love and joy.

May we pray that our loving heavenly Father will continuously be with Ryan and light up his future.

Pastor Park, who has worked very hard for our Rainbow Family ministry, married a wonderful Lady.

Please celebrate with us!! `

Pastor Park has been faithfully serving God and serving Rainbow Ministry for the last 18 years without pay.

However, as he is starting a family, we have decided to provide him with monthly remunerations.

This time Every year there were concerts and other events held to fund our ministry.

However, for 2020 there have been great financial difficulties as we were not able to host these events.

In order to keep our doors open we have decided to host another Walk-A-Thon on November 28th. We ask for your prayers and your support. Thank you so much.

After the Sunday afternoon service held on November 15th, with the support of Pastor Lee and Grace Bible Church, we can giveaway turkey and other foods to help prepare the Thanksgiving meals for our RFI motel kids families in need.

We desperately need your prayers and your support.

We praise the faithful Lord who has allowed us to share spiritual and physical food with our neighbors.

Although Rainbow Family may be small in size, we pray that just like the 12 disciples who evangelized to the world with the gospel that our ministry will be torch the world, shining in the dark and rotting places as living witnesses.

James2:14

What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them?”

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

God bless you!

I would like to thank Pastor of Calvary Presbyterian Church Jeong-Chan Kim and his wife for their continual support and prayers, material donations, visits, and lovely encouragements.

Every month we dedicate our time and resources to help out our R.F.I families who live in motels and other neighbors in need. Last month, our freezer broke down and the food was spoiled. Thankfully, Elder Hoon sang Kim helped us out with K-swiss products and daily necessities and Elders Jong do Park from Calvary Presbyterian Church we were able to provide with school supplies, toys, and Shoes.

Children were so grateful and happy.

We started the service with a sermon prepared by Pastor David Lee, the senior pastor of Grace Bible Church. We had a lovely time and enjoyed the delicious meal that they had prepared for us. There was a miracle where some people accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.

I am glad that many found their comfort in the Lord during these hard times.

We thank our Lord who proclaims victory and shows the world that His kingdom is always abundant with love and blessings.

Dear Friends Hallelujah!!

I wish peace and health to all our supporters who are under the grace of the Lord, who transcends all difficult circumstances. Healing from the Lord’s grace and from the Word of God, Rainbow Family offers our monthly greetings in the name of the Lord.

Starting from August Centralia Elementary School, Orange view Middle School, Western High School, and Cypress College have started their fall semesters. At our home, both the mothers and children are studying hard from 9 am to 2 pm. Being able to see their enthusiasm and provide them with the hope of new life makes me swell up tears in thanksgiving to the Lord and our supporters.

I thank the Lord our father, who uses Rainbow family ministry to be a home for them. Once again I give my praise to Jesus Christ and dedicate my life to serve him.

I want to do something for our family who stuck at home for so long so we went on a trip for 2 nights and 3 days. We rode a boat alongside the river. We offered endless praise to the Lord for our wonderful experience. I also believe that through this experience our friendship has gotten stronger.

Last month, Members from the mountaineering club came to visited us with offering. Thank you!! 

As we were selected as a target community by the Korean Gospel Broadcasting Station of USA, we received generous contribution. We sincerely thank the president and the staff of the Korean Gospel Broadcasting Station of USA.

Rainbow Family has been my family for the last 18 years. Through the grace of God I received the heart of the Lord and I feel happy when my family feels happy and feel pain when they are in pain. I want to protect them with the Gospel and keep these doors open for the lost and the least until the Lord comes.

RFI continuously giveaway food and living supply to the RFI school children and other under privilege families who lives in the Motel.

Please help us. Thank you very much.

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 grace and blessings will always be by your side.

       Ester and Aiden                   2020 Walk-a-thon                   Sharing day

Dear Friends Hallelujah!!

 Rainbow family wishes you good health and peace in the grace of the Lord who transcends all earthly Circumstances. Under the umbrella of His grace and gift of scripture, our Rainbow Family that is going through a healing process in which we are abundant in freedom and in Thanksgiving would like to offer our greetings to you and yours.

Esther and her son Aiden, who have lived with us for at least a year back in 2018, have joined us again due to their unfortunate circumstances. Knowing that Esther and her son are safe and healthy, I am sure that the loving Lord has answered our prayers and for that I give him thanks. I ask for prayers and support so that Esther’s family can be rooted within the Word and find healing and triumph through the Lord’s grace and abounding love.

On July 18th of this year, we held our Walk-A-Thon. Although we were joined by the RFI summer school students every year, we walked 50 blocks with just our Rainbow Family members due to the current situation. Afterwards, we shared lunch and enjoyed the time spent together. Special thanks to our Walk-A-Thon sponsors.

Since May, every last Saturday of the month, we have been donating food and daily living supplies to certainly our RFI summer school families, but also our neighbors in need.

As I have been praying for the food and daily supplies, there is something that I realized. Even if our situation is unfavorable, when we share our hardships and abundances, we find ourselves getting closer with one another and growing in our faith.

I genuinely thank everyone for your support and prayers.

I have faith in the Lord who has permitted the best conditions and has allowed for a new life for those who have been marginalized in our society. I return all the glory to the God of love. I believe that due to your prayers and support, we are able to fulfill the will of the Lord on earth as it is in heaven.

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.

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 grace and blessings will always be by your side.

Under the umbrella of His grace and gift of scripture, our Rainbow Family that is going through a healing process in which we are abundant in freedom and in Thanksgiving would like to offer our greetings to you and yours.

Janet, who has joined our family 6 months ago, gave birth to a beautiful and healthy son, Liam. Once again, we have experienced the faithfulness of the Lord and we offer Him all the praise and the glory. Janet, was raised under foster parents her whole life, joined us with her 4 year old daughter while she was pregnant. The father of her daughter has been in and out of prison and has caused great heartache to Janet and her daughter. As for Liam’s father, he changed his contact information as soon as he received the news that Janet was pregnant. She, who lived through so much pain, testifies that she accepts Jesus Christ as Savior and has now found a new identity as a daughter of God. We ask for your prayers and support so that she will be able reign victorious with the Lord’s abundant love.

Thankfully, of the mothers in our ministry, Vanessa and Bella while living in the Home they have passed the GED test and now attending Cypress College. After the completion of their next semesters, they hope to go to 4 years of University and get a degree to be a successful members of the society.

As we all know because of our current situation, Rainbow Family can’t open up summer school for the students. But we can help our neighbors in need by providing them food. Last month Elder Park of Calvary Presbyterian Church, who always warms up our missionary, was generous as he provided our children with sneakers. How happy would the Lord have been to see the smile on the mothers and children as they received food supplies and sneakers? In addition, many of our Anonymous friends left rice, toilet paper, Masks, and food at our doorsteps. These wonderful friends are surely angels from the Lord. I bow my head deeply in thanksgiving to all our supporters.

In order to overcome our financial difficulty, we are planning to host 2020 Walk-a-Thon on July 18th. We will be meeting at our Home at 9:30 AM and will be walking 50 blocks in Buena Park area After the walk, we will all join together and share a meal. If you have the time, please join us for the walk. If you don’t have the time, please join us through prayer and support. Thank you.!!

Isaiah 61:3

And provide for those who grieve in Zion—to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness,

a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor.”

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!

 Dear Friends Hallelujah!! Rainbow family wishes you good health and peace in the grace of the Lord who transcends all earthly Circumstances. Under the umbrella of His grace and gift of scripture, our Rainbow Family that is going through a healing process in which we are abundant in freedom and in Thanksgiving would like to offer our greetings to you and yours.

I would love to introduce a family that has sent to us last month: 24 year old single mother, Evelyn; her 2 year old daughter, Elaina; and her 5 month son, Emmanuel. Evelyn does not know of her father and shared that her mother wandered around her whole life due to her drug addictions. Because of this, Evelyn grew up in the hands of a foster mother.

She shared that she had a 7 year old daughter that had already been adopted. As she cried sharing her heart during a phone call in her motel, she said that she was thankful and wanted to protect the family that she had now. Although our circumstances make it difficult for us to receive new families, Pastor Park and I prayed and decided to welcome her into our family.

Won’t you be a monthly sponsor for Evelyn and her kids. Thank you!!

Members and parents from the Irvine Music Charity Foundation who taught our kids music Instruments visited us with a lot of household goods and food. We were particularly thankful because the volunteers had paid for the materials with the money that they had raised through working part time. It is so beautiful to see that the youth are living lives that resemble that of Jesus’. Praise the Lord who lights their future and blesses them.

Last month, Janet’s cute daughter Serenity turned four.

Although Serenity’s father broke the promise to visit her, she still celebrated a wonderful birthday full of presents and love.

Anthony and Angelina from our Rainbow Family children have graduated from elementary schools with excellent grades. This is the fruits of our friends like you. Thank you from bottom of my heart.

Proverbs19:1“He who is kind to the poor lends to the LORD, and he will reward him for what he has done.”
