KEN'S PAGE (EX-MORMON) [new 6/96]
Ex-Mormon, Ken Algier, explains why he left Mormonism. Ken explains, "As an Ex Mormon I have my opinions, just like anyone else. I am not our to get anyone. It's up to each one of us to determine what we want and who we want to believe. I cannot accept the doctrine of the Mormon church. And I suggest, if you are a Mormon, to really learn what it is that you are committing your eternial life to. Roll the stone over and examine the other side. If your a Christian, open yourself up to the Word of God. Live it and become independently dependent on God. Let the local church be your place of worship, your teacher, your place of fellowship. Live God's Word."

The Korean Center for World Missions, as it strives to conquer the world with the gospel in obedience to Jesus' last command to be his witness to the ends of the world, was no more than a small prayer meeting 15 years ago. In 1977, Korea was going through a severe political instability and economic depression. The chaotic situation in Korean society desperately called for prayer warriors, like Esther, who would pray for the nation. Dr.Hyung-Ja Lee began her prayer meetings with her relatives and friends; as the word about the prayer meetingspread, more people joined in. It was joined by Ewha Alumnae Prayer Meeting, and they formed a regular prayer meeting and called it "The Torch Assembly" Eventually, Ewha alumnae formed an independent "Ewha Torch Assembly." The Torch Assembly, for the purpose of better organizing its meetings, registered with the Ministry of Culture and Publicity as a nonprofit religious organization under its current name, "The Korean Center for World Mission." ("Torch MissionsCenter" is still concurrently used.) The Center was reorganized according to professional and functional groups. It now has about 20 assemblies in Seoul, Taejun, Taegu, Pusan, Junju, and Juju, The Korean Center for World Missions has been involed in the following work: scholarship fund to raise future Christian leaders, mercy ministry to help the needy children, supporting the Far East Broadcasting Company, the Hallelujah Soccer Team for the sports ministry, TorchChoir for the music ministry,publication ministry,Torch Seminary for Lay People, Torch Library for providing resources for pastors, Torch Institute of Biblical Research, Torch-Trinity Evangelical Divinity School Lecuture Series, Torch-Westminster Christian Counseling & Educational Foundation Lecture Series, Torch-British Ministers Lecture Series, Creation Scientist Assembly, Korean In addition, for the purpose of overseas missions, the Korean Center for world Missions supports the Philippines Technical School in the Philippines and a technical School in China, as well as, sending missionaries to Russia. Byanalyzing the information we have gathered on the 12,000 unreached peoples in the world, we help missionary candidates better prepare for the work. The new Facilities for the Korean Center for World Missions were bulit in 1991 and are located in Yang-Jae-Dong in Seoul. -- adapted from Development of the Korean Center for World Mission.

In addition to Lawrence Veinott's popular Patricia's New Testament Greek Hypercard stack, a very well received program for learning or reviewing New Testament Greek, there are several other teaching tools that we find attractive for teaching kids. Natalia's Dots is a Macintosh program which contains almost seventy dot-to-dot puzzles that can help children learn the alphabet and the numbers 1-26. It is suitable for ages 2-6. Most of the puzzles are in color and several contain animations. Heather's Notes is a Hypercard stack that helps students learn the notes of the bass and treble clefs. Mr. Veinott developed it to help my daughters learn the beginning notes on the piano. Patricia & Heather's Math is a Hypercard stack that teaches basic addition and subtraction. Features drills, tutorial, record keeping. Good for beginners. Heather's Multiplication is a HyperCard stack that helps teach children the multiplication tables. There is a very modest shareware charge for these programs if you find them useful. Highly recommended.
