Title : (United States) Dr. Paul Chung Sr. Went to be with the Lord (by P. Ron Ward)
Last Sunday, November 19th, Dr. Paul Chung Sr. went to be with the Lord at the age of 66. It happened just after he delivered the Sunday message in New Jersey UBF, giving his whole heart and strength. Feeling shoulder pain, he went home to rest. An hour later, his wife, M. Sarah arrived home and found that he had suffered a heart attack. His passing was sudden and unexpected to us. However, it was not unexpected to our Lord Jesus. At God's right time he has taken Dr. Paul Chung Sr. to everlasting glory in his kingdom.
In his final message last Sunday, Paul shared his certainty in the victory that Jesus gives. The message is on youtube; the link can be found at http://newjerseyubf.org/. His proclamation of Jesus' victory over death is at the 23-minute mark. I encourage you to listen to the entire message if you can. It is inspiring and gives clear spiritual direction for young people, and for us all.
A homecoming ceremony for Dr. Paul Chung Sr. will be held at the Chicago UBF Center on Tuesday, November 30th at 6:30 p.m. This event will be livestreamed and the link will be posted on ubf.org as soon as possible.
Please pray for Paul's surviving family members: his wife, M. S*arah Chung, and his children, Dr. P*aul Jr. (wife E*lizabeth, and children J*osiah and N*oah), and S*arah Jr. May our Lord Jesus Christ comfort them, as only he can. And may their faith in Jesus' victory and in God's love be strengthened through the work of the Holy Spirit.
Condolences and financial gifts can be given in person at the Homecoming Ceremony or sent to S*arah Chung, (in care of her son, Paul). 6614 N. Maplewood Ave., Chicago, IL 60645. Financial gifts can also be sent via Venmo: @Sarah-Chung-9; or by Zelle QuickPay: 7734584362 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let's remember Jesus Christ, raised from the dead, and celebrate the life of faith of Dr. Paul Chung, a servant of Christ Jesus.
In Christ, P. Ron Ward

Title : (United Kingdom) Shep Darren Hildrow Update as of 11/27 (by Darren Hildrow)Dear Prayer Warriors!
I am starting to feel significant improvement in my body strength,
I cannot be sure but I assume that the red blood cells are beginning to grow back after the Chemo, thank God!
I have the energy to take daily walks and slowly build muscle again.
The healing of my throat is a slow process, I thought it would happen faster
but I realize that I need to get in line with God's timing and not mine.
I am praying that I may be able to eat through my mouth in the next week or two, this would be a huge step forward.
I am very thankful for the small changes and hope that by the time Christmas comes I will be back up and about.
Thank for your prayers, they are a great encouragement.

Title : (United States) Becky (Song) Lee Update (San Jose, CA; M. Peter Song's daughter): (by Moses Noh)
Thank you for your support and prayers during Becky's long surgery. The good news is that there were no huge surprises or complications during surgery.
The surgeon does suspect this is cancer but cannot say for sure what type it is until the pathology results come back in 7-14 days. He was able to remove most of the lesions from the mid abdomen area down to her pelvis which meant removing the uterus, Fallopian tubes, ovaries and a portion of her colon. He was able to reattach the colon safely (great news). There was some disease near her diaphragm and liver that he was unable to remove because it was located too close to some of her vessels and would have been too risky to go after. Her goal now is to be able to eat and drink and go to the bathroom without any issues and to make sure her colon repair heals well. Please continue to pray for her recovery.
Title : (Freiburg, Germany) M. Noah You update as of 11/26 (by Noah You)
