         Beatrice Family      Torrance Good Shepherd Church          Walk-A-Thon      

Dear Friends       

Hallelujah!!

How are you doing during this sudden change of weather?

Seeking a new life in the grace of the Lord and being healed by his love, Rainbow Family offers our monthly greetings. We are grateful for the love poured by our living God and our friends who have provided us with donations and prayers.

I would like to introduce a new family that joined us 37 years old single mother Beatrice and her three daughters. She shared that her Parents immigrated to Santa Ana from Mexico. However, there were issues in her household which led her to run with the wrong crowd. She met a man who she had two kids with. Unfortunately, because of her drug addictions father of the kids remarried and started another family with the children. In her loneliness, she met another man who is the father of her three daughters. Due to her drug addictions, her kids were taken away from her by the government where she was introduced to Rainbow Family and started a rehabilitation process with the Word of God for 3 months before her kids joined her. I give thanks to the Lord who is lighting her future. She is committing herself to the Word and we ask for prayers and monetary support for their family. Thank you so much. 

A long-time supporter of our Rainbow Family, Deacon Seong-Won Yoon of Torrance Good Shepherd Church, along with the newly appointed Pastor Seung-Hyeok Lee and the elders brought a lot of delicious food for us. I trust and pray that the Lord will continue to provide endless support and prayers. We are truly grateful for their love.

On October 29th, 2022 we had our Walk-A-Thon event. 

This year we walked 50 blocks around the neighborhood, ate a delicious meal afterwards and had a good time together. We would like to especially thank all our sponsors who participated in our event.

On Saturday November 19th, we plan to distribute Turkeys and other necessary ingredients for Thanksgiving to who are in need. Please help me to bring a warm and happy Thanksgiving to the families in our neighborhood.  

I believe that the Lord will grant the best conditions for success and the start of a new life for those who are marginalized in society. All thanks and glory to the loving Lord. Through your hard work, we are able to open heaven’s doors and fulfill the Lord’s will on earth as it is in heaven. Thank you. 

Philippians4:6-7

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

Because He lives,

          Dalvi Family                    Malisa and Asher                 Genevi

 

Dear Friends,

Hallelujah!!

How are you during these difficult times? 

I pray with all my heart that the Lord’s encouragement and peace is always with you.

Thankful for God’s grace, Rainbow Family offers our greetings to you and yours.

I would like to introduce a new family that joined us last month : 24 year old single mother Dalvi and her cute 2 year old son, Renzo. Dalvi shared that she was born to a mother with alcohol addiction and a father who she never met. She has a younger brother who passed away long ago. She also lost her mother in the year she turned 16 as her mother was driving the car in an intoxicated state. Unable to hold back her tears, Dalvi shares she was the only one who survived the accident. All alone in the world, Dalvi found comfort in drugs and working for Dating Services. She met her baby’s father, who is Japanese, was also a drug addict. She was drawn to church as she started to believe in Jesus Christ and how he died on the cross for her sins. It was there that she met a good church friend who introduced her to Rainbow Family. We ask for prayers and support for Dalvi and Renzo. 

Malisa, who has been with us for 7 months now, gave birth to a 7.5ound baby boy, Asher. Pastor Soo il Hyun and Elder Oh stopped by and provided warm words of encouragement and a gift card to purchase baby products. I genuinely thank the both Men for their love and care. 

Veronica, who helps manage Rainbow Family with us, joined us when her daughter Genevi was 11 years old. When she came to Rainbow whit her mother and two younger siblings turned 17 this year. Genevi has a talent for art and is being taught at an art academy that is run by Director Jung Hwa Lim. As she prepares to enter art college next year, we ask for your prayers and support as she pursues her aspirations. 

We are so grateful for all the donations and support that we have received from donors, supporters, volunteer groups, and churches during this difficult time. We praise the Lord with tears who makes miracles happen and who allows our supporters to show the world the abundance and blessings in the kingdom of God. 

Romans 8:28

“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called

According to his purpose.”

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

Because He lives,

       Field Trip to Zoo                Quantavia Family             Trip to Science Center  

 

Dear Friends,

Hallelujah!!

How are you during the hot weather? 

Living with a grateful heart within the Lord’s grace, Rainbow Family offers our monthly greetings.

I would like to introduce a new family that joined us last month: 34 year-old single mother Quantavia and her cute seven month old son, Kevin. She shared that she was constantly nervous growing up because her father committed domestic violence to her family, making her determined to protect her mother and her younger siblings from her father. Then, one day, she saw her younger sister being beaten by her husband, and without her knowing it, she immediately went to protect her sister. Because of her assault toward her sister’s husband, she ended up spending 5 years in prison. While she was in prison, she heard about Jesus, but she couldn’t open her heart because the wound of the past was so painful. She didn’t quite fully understand why Rainbow Family Home accepted her and her son with great love, but she knew that it was because of Jesus. Weeping, Quantavia accepted Jesus as her Lord and Savior and is determined to live according to the Word. We ask for your prayers and support that Quantavia and her son may find healing and victory in the Lord. Thank you. 

Our Orange County’s Summer School for low-income, single-parent children has 12 students attending this year as well. The summer school program, which has been going on for 11 years, was planned to be held for 6 weeks, but at the request of the mothers, it was extended to the end of July. 

Director Lim Jung Hwa and her volunteers are a great help to our Summer School. In addition to volunteering, she takes our students on field trips to the Science Center and Irvine Park and prepares lunch for the kids. She has provided our Mission with so much love that it is hard to express the total extent of my gratitude. I pray and bless that the grace of the Lord is always with Director Lim Jung Hwa and her volunteers. Thank you. 

After reviewing the Covid-19 situation, our After School Program, which will resume after summer vacation, will be decided. The Summer School will continue during the vacation as our Missionary leads with the light of the gospel to improve the local community. 

We sincerely thank everyone for participating in the ministry and providing support and love.

1 Timothy 1:16

But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his immense patience as an example for those who would believe in him and receive eternal life.

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

       Pastor Suil Hyun                   Easter egg hunt                     Sharing day

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.

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. 

An old friend of our ministry, Pastor Suil Hyun delivered meals for our afterschool students. I would like to express my gratitude for the precious hearts who look out for their neighbors in need even through these difficult times. 

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. 

Every month we have been donating daily necessities, disinfectants, masks, and testing kits to neighbors in need. We would be very grateful for your cooperation in this as well. 

On Saturday, May 28th 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 Summer School. 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.

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,

      Veronica’s Birthday          Small Group at Immanuel Church           Sharing Event

 

“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.

Veronica, who recently joined our family with her two kids, celebrated her 25th birthday with Rainbow Family. She is a good mother who tries to abide by the rules at the Home. Although she had a painful past, there have been many positive changes after receiving the Lord as her savior. With no lack in the world, she has been a healthy member of society. She continues to live at the Rainbow Family Home and is determined to learn the word of the Lord as she grows as a Christian with her children.

All glory to the good Lord who promises them victory.

I have received a lot of grace after visiting the small group at Immanuel Church, a longtime supporter of our ministry. We sincerely thank them for their generous support and prayers.

Our Rainbow Family continues to distribute food and daily necessities to those in need. This time we donated household items that were sent in by various donors and food that was donated from Orange County Korean Church. We delivered the food to families who walked without a car or could not come due to other circumstances. Even in the United States, there are too many families that are in need. All of these ministries are possible because of the wonderful supporters like you. We bow our heads in thanksgiving.

During these complicated and heartbreaking times, God has placed many faithful people like us who are not swayed by the things of the world. Even at such times as this,

I want to be able to realize the providence of our Father and protect my heart while serving our neighbors.

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,

  Rainbow Family after school        Michiko Family      Future Young Leaders of America

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.

I would like to introduce 40 year old single mother Michiko and her 3 month old daughter. Michiko was born in Fukuoka and has a 19 year old son from her first marriage. 

Due to her difficult circumstances, she left Japan and went to Macao where she met a Pakistani man and got pregnant. They came to the United States but due to domestic abuse, Michiko ended up giving birth in a government shelter.

Because she is an illegal immigrant, the government could not help further and so she joined our Rainbow Family ministry.

Because of the language barriers, there are some difficulties, not too long ago, she accepted Jesus Christ as her Savior and is attending church. We return the glory to God who is guiding her every step of the way.

Our Rainbow Family after school program started again last month. Currently there are 14 students from Centralia Elementary School that are participating in our program.

I am very grateful that we are able to see one another in a healthy state.

Our volunteers and parents from Future Young Leaders of America visited our rainbow home and donated daily necessities for our families. We would like to genuinely thank everyone for the abundant prayers and donations. 

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.  

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!

       Marisa Family              Daniel Kim Eagle Project               Veronica Family              

Dear friends

Hallelujah!!

Magpie, Magpie’s new year’s day was yesterday and our, our new year’s day is today…[translated Korean song for Korean New Year] 

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.

I would like to introduce a family that joined us last month: 29 year old single mother Marisa and her 2 year old daughter for Marisa and her daughter Leanne. 

Marisa’s mother and father were separated due to her mother’s drug addictions. Born to a wandering mother, she spent most of her childhood in foster care. There were moment mother and Marisa lived in a shelter when she was out of prison. Her mother passed away early after her health deteriorated due to her addiction to drugs. Afterwards, Marisa realized that she was walking the same path as her mother. She joined Rainbow Family in order to be with her daughter Leanne again who is in foster care. She has accepted Jesus Christ as her savior and is working hard in her rehabilitation program. We ask for support and prayers

24 year old single mother Veronica and her 5 year old son David and 2 year old daughter Emma have also joined our Rainbow Family. Veronica shared that she left home at an early age due to her drug addiction. Afterwards she met the father of her children who was constantly in jail. She left her kids in her mother’s care and started living on aimlessly. Due to this the government got involved and limited her time with the kids to 3 days a week. However, with her participation in our rehabilitation program and the constant drug tests, she may be able to live with her children from April. Even though she has never read the bible before she has accepted Jesus as her savior and she is attending daily bible studies and church on a regular basis. 

Daniel, a very talented boy scout, volunteered for Rainbow Family School in the previous year. He stopped by occasionally and became a good friend to our children. Last month, along with his boy scout friends, Daniel prepared materials to create two wonderful picnic tables for us. The tables have served multiple purposes for eating, doing homework, and playing. I would like to bow down in thanksgiving for Daniel’s genuine heart in serving and everyone who worked hard to create the tables. 

The Rainbow Family was miraculously sustained by our supporter’s prayers and monetary donations. We ask you to join forces with us to help Rainbow Family become a true place of refuge for those who are hurt and marginalized through monetary donations and prayers. 

Ephesians2:10 “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God 

prepared in advance for us to do.”

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.

Because He lives,

Liz Lee /Director of RFI
