Wailuku in Maui County, Hawaii — Hawaiian Island Archipelago (Pacific Ocean)
Monument of Christian Faith
Today, when more than three thousand Korean churches in America, along with their members ask, tell them you all are Diasporas as a result of 100 years of prayers and devotion.
When someone ask what we must do from now on, tell them to uphold and carry on the vision of world mission.
This monument of Christian faith was built to commemorate the occasion of Korean Americans who left Je-Mui-Po harbor and arrived in Hawaii 100 years ago; to honor the love and dedication displayed by Korean church pastors along with their members since then; to reaffirm our commitment to produce Christian leaders with dignity and character for world-wide service in the future; and to rededicate ourselves for the great task of world mission.
