A sign in a café window in South Korea has led to a new home for a church plant.
A missionary in Seoul saw the sign, which said “Closed on the Lord’s Day”, and talked to the cafe owners.
Stuart Robinson says he realised God might be answering a prayer his church plant had been praying for a year.
Baptist Press reports, new churches in South Korea face the challenge of finding meeting space.
Most South Koreans live in tightly packed high-rise apartments. Noise from a meeting might disturb neighbours, which is culturally offensive.
Mr Robinson returned to the café a few weeks later with other church members to ask about renting the space.
The owners answered “yes” so fast, the missionary thought they hadn’t understood the question.
Now the café gives them a place to hold Sunday services and plan community outreaches [to college students and families].
