Sook Hee Bae bulletin insert
Empowering women in Korea
Ms. Suh and her three daughters stood trembling at the backdoor of a domestic violence shelter in Seoul, South Korea, when Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) mission worker Sook Hee Bae arrived. The shelter had received word that Ms. Suh’s husband had learned her whereabouts, and the staff feared that he would harm Ms. Suh. They called Sook Hee, who was working at the Good News Shelter across town, and asked her to take Ms. Suh and her daughters to safety. Although she had grown up in Seoul, Sook Hee had lived in the United States for more than 25 years and had just returned to Korea to begin mission service.
This colorful bulletin insert lifts up the work of Presbyterian mission worker Sook Hee Bae and her work with the Presbyterian Church of Korea’s Women Ministers Association.
