During the first week of April, a massive wildfire raged through the Gangwon province in South Korea. The fire caused tons of damage to people and property, including FEBC’s Yeongdong station. The first and second floors are destroyed and the third and fourth floors are currently inaccessible due to smoke and dust. Efforts are being made to determine the plan and cost of rebuilding the station.
The wildfire started in Gangwon-do, Goseong and then moved to Sokcho. Over 3,500 people had to be evacuated, at least 120 homes burned to the ground, and 2 people lost their lives, according to the Associated Press.
Please pray that no further harm will occur. Pray for God’s comfort in the hearts of local residents whose lives were affected by the wildfire. Lastly, also pray that the Yeongdong Station, which is the base for FEBC’s ministry in the Gangwon province, will be restored quickly and the gospel will be delivered without interruption.
