who can control them and give peace to the nations?
Praise Jesus who is the hope of the ends of the earth, who calms down the turmoil of the nations, who forgives all our sins and who gives peace with God and peace with men (Ps 65:5,7, 2). May this good news of Jesus be proclaimed through the World wide Christmas worship services and messages! Glory to God, Peace to men!! 
- While the nations rise and wane, the kingdom of God extends day by day till our Lord's second coming without hindrance! 
-Praise and thank God that the Lord God has sent 45 new missionaries from our UBF thus far this year.
- Jose Anibal, a new venezuela missionary to Ecuador on 11/20 (Juan Seo)
Jose Anibal was sent to Ecuador to pioneer Quito last week
While Venezuela has been unendurably suffering politically, socially and economically, God's work is ever growing. God has sent Jose Anibal following Juan Carlos' HC to Argentina a while ago. Please pray for him to receive a necessary visa to have a self supporting missionary life in Quito. May God send his coworker Yessika and daughter Estefania as soon as possible too. May God use Venezuela as God used first century's Jewish Diaspora who were scattered by persecutions to spread the gospel to other Latin nations and to all the world.
(*M. Juan Seo informed that another missionary HC is planning to go to Chile soon.)

- Tony King's (Chicago) Slovakia UBF visiting story(Shortened) 
M. Paul Jang went to Slovakia in 2007 and learned Slovak by faith. Then Korean Embassy was opened newly. He was hired because he was the one who spoke Slovak when the Embassy required it among Koreans there. M. Esther joined next year. S. Lukas was not a Christian when he went there in 2007 but just to open a business. He met M. Esther who was a regular customer of his shop and became a Christian in 2013 through Bible study with M. Paul. M. Grace Choi was a missionary to Egypt, as a Korean language teacher. When she  finished her teaching, by God's leading she came to Slovakia in 2014 and established a HC with S. Lukas in 2015. When I went to their SWS, there was Olena from Kiev too. 

Prayer topics:
1. Pioneering of Comenius University. M. Esther enrolled as a student in Korean studies to be near students. Since she already knows the material, she has been a blessing to many other students.
