On behalf of MAP International I would like to thank you for visiting our website and learning more about the work that we accomplish because of the generosity of supporters like you.
In July of 2014 I assumed my new role as president and CEO of MAP, I’ve been humbled at how God has had His hand upon my life, and by the personal and professional experiences He has provided to prepare me for this calling. It is such an honor to join you as part of this amazing organization.
To help you understand my passion for reaching out to the world’s hurting and hopeless, I’d like to share a bit of my story . . . I was born in South Korea and when I was one year old, my father went to console a friend, whose child had contracted polio. Unbeknownst to him, he brought the polio virus home to me.
By the time I was five years old, my family could no longer take care of me and I was left at an orphanage.
When I was 11 years old, I was adopted by a family in Alaska, and I came to America.
For me, joining the MAP family feels like “coming home.” It’s a culmination of my personal and professional life experiences.
I know God made me for a purpose. He has given me these experiences, even polio, to prepare me to be used by Him. I’m not bitter, because I know God is using this for His glory. One day, in heaven, I will walk and run again!
Meanwhile, if I can prevent a child from suffering, I will.
I have traveled around the world, and I have seen suffering firsthand. Every day, people in developing countries endure great pain and many die, because they lack access to medicines and medical care. It doesn’t have to be this way, medicines can change lives.
You can help prevent suffering, provide healing, and help unlock someone’s greatest potential.
It breaks my heart that there is so much suffering in the world, when we have plenty of medicines available here in the U.S. Your support of MAP International helps ship urgently needed medical supplies to suffering people in developing countries of the world!
Blessed to serve alongside you,
President and CEO
