Let’s Talk: Mental Health Conference for Parents & Youth of Korean Descent Saturday April 28 in Vienna, Virginia


Let's Talk Korean American Conference

(By Gemma Sohn) I am thrilled about the upcoming “Let’s Talk” conference in April. The event will be uniquely therapeutic, as both youth and their parents will be participating in interacting with each other in a meaningful way, through educational workshops and time of bonding.

This is the first joint venture between Washington Christian Counseling Institute (WCCI) and Mustard Seed Generation (MSG). This joint effort is especially meaningful in that both organizations have sought to raise awareness regarding mental health needs in the Korean American community, each serving in a very unique way for different age group.

The Supply Charity Gala in New York City on Saturday May 19, 2012 – Support this Worthy Cause

The Supply Staff

Who is The Supply?

Education for many of us is a given. We don’t even think twice about advancing from primary school to secondary school. Our eyes are set on college degrees, graduate degrees, and any other letters that we can place at the end of our name.

But there’s a world out there where secondary school is not even an option. We’re not even talking about opportunity costs or economic trade-offs, but in some areas of the world, secondary schools just don’t exist.

When we say some areas, we’re talking about a place that holds 2 billion people worldwide. Slums are growing exponentially as 250,000 new children are born into slums each day. That’s 250,000 more human beings subjected to the sub-human living conditions. Children in slums often play in gutters of human feces and their homes are built upon mounds of trash.

2012 Missions Madness Basketball Tournament – May 5th, 2012

Missions Madness 2012 New Mercy Community Church

Now that March Madness is nearing its end, it’s time to start thinking about a tournament y’all can actually participate in!  On May 5th, New Mercy Community Church (Hackensack, NJ) is hosting its annual Missions Madness basketball tournament to raise funds to support its missionaries.

Missions Madness is one of the largest basketball tournaments in the tri-state area.  Held at the famous George and Phyllis Rothman Center (a massive complex featuring four full-sized courts), the tournament is a top-level experience.  Each year, the stadium is packed with hundreds of participants and spectators, so the atmosphere is highly-charged and exciting.  Round this off with two hired professional referees per court, and you have a tournament where everyone can have a great time. (Check out photos from past Missions Madness tournaments by visiting the photo gallery).
