At the beginning of June I had the experience of visiting South Korea at the invitation of Dr. Billy Kim. As a member of the U.S. Board for the Far East Broadcasting Company (FEBC), I joined a group that included Ed Cannon, President of FEBC, and Dr. Mark Jobe, President of the Moody Bible Institute. The main reason for the trip was to attend the 50th anniversary of Billy Graham’s largest ever crusade in Seoul. 60,000 people flooded the World Cup Soccer Stadium and several thousand more stood outside for the event at which Franklin Graham was the featured speaker. Also, a 10,000 voice choir sang several selections including the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel’s Messiah. The event can be viewed here.
Following the special event, we spent several days in South Korea visiting churches and FEBC’s radio stations. This week on FIRST PERSON, you’ll hear the personal testimony of one FEBC broadcaster who himself came to Christ by listening to the Gospel on FEBC. You’ll also hear my conversation with Ed Cannon and Mark Jobe as they reflect on our mutual experience.
NEXT WEEK: 1st of two interviews with the late historian David McCullough and his book, 1776.
