I was born and raised in a Christian family. I was baptized as a baby and went to church every Sunday because my parents told me to do so.

First, I thought that this club would be a great way to meet Korean people on campus, but as I kept attending the weekly meetings, I felt a sense of fellowship and this fellowship was centered on God. Listening to the guest speakers talk about the Gospel and Jesus and conversing with other followers of Christ, I came to understand that Jesus is my one and only Saviour. I came to understand that He is waiting for us to turn away from our sinful nature and turn to Him and be with Him. This fueled the drive in me to want to build a more intimate and personal relationship with Jesus. I felt more love and security than I had ever felt prior.
