Currently, Pastor Lee’s home, otherwise known as Jusarang (“God’s Love”) Community is legally defined as a church community. Since “the drop box” was erected in 2009, nearly 400 children have been “dropped off” with Pastor Lee. Some he has adopted, others return to their families, many are taken to other facilities in Seoul, but none, as is the purpose of the box, are left out in the cold.
However, Pastor Lee’s work with Jusarang Community extends far beyond the drop box itself. Originally, Jusarang Community was created as a safe haven for children with disabilities, a place for children like Pastor Lee’s own disbaled son.
JUSARANG WAS MEANT TO BE A HOME FOR “THE LEAST OF THESE.”
But ever since his family began to grow beyond what his home could handle, his dream has been to build a larger and more permanent “Jusarang Community” in order to better care for his own family, and also RESCUE, RECOVER, and RESTORE both mothers and children in dire situations.
In the end, this isn’t a movement to build more boxes. IT'S A MOVEMENT TO CREATE A WORLD THAT DOESN'T NEED THEM. A world where every life is seen and treated as valuable and purposeful.
