For the past 10 years (2002-2011), we celebrated the Founders Day in Chicago, USA, giving thanks to God for his work in Korea, Europe, North America, CIS, Latin America, Africa, and Asia and remembering late Dr. Samuel Lee, M. Sarah Barry, and those who were at the frontier of world mission. We especially learned the spiritual legacy God bestowed us through the Founders through which God has blessed UBF to achieve His will. The pioneering history as reported was published in the book entitled with “An Anthology of UBF Founders Day Report (1961-2010).”
I would like to inform you of the decision of M. Grace A. Lee and her family. After much prayer, the Lee family made a final decision that they would not get involved in the Founders Day Celebration officially, but instead, they will hold a family memorial service. I highly respect the family decision and support them.
Please pray that we may keep the spiritual heritage God has given to us through the Founders and pass it to the next generations.
Abraham Kim, General Director
