Allegheny East Conference

Story by LaTasha Hewitt

Allegheny East Conference's Delaware Korean church plant in Newark recently hosted a Happy House Program, a house repair service provided to Korean residents in the Wilmington, Del., area. To assist with the project, 26 students and two professors came from Sahmyook University in Seoul, Korea, as well as five volunteers from the Andrews Korean church in Berrien Springs, Mich.

After advertising the program to 850 Korean households in the Wilmington area, Seungho Park, pastor of Delaware Korean, visited each of the 16 applicants. After a careful review of their financial status and the level of family support, he selected eight families.

After years of being homeless and drug-addicted, Stephanie Grant finally hit rock bottom. "I was sick and tired of being sick and tired," she says. "I had the audacity to tell God, 'If you exist, prove it. Fix me. And by the way, God,'" she laughs, "'don't send me to a church to do it.'"
