Take a look at this announcement
from UBF Official website. UBF HQ developed a new committee to "develop an education program for missionaries as well as staff worldwide." But look at the committee members: P. Ron Ward, Dr. Paul Hong, M. Mark Yang, Dr. James Kim, M. Daniel Yang, Dr. Jim Rabchuk, Dr. Abraham T. Kim and Dr. John Jun. As far as I know, they are all from UBF chapters in USA. This is ridiculous.
The committee is supposed to "develop an education program for missionaries as well as staff worldwide
." But there is no representive from any other UBF chapters outside USA! Then how can this committee "develop an education program for missionaries as well as staff worldwide
"? Any education program that this committee may come up with will have only the flavor of the UBF USA.
For example, Europe and USA are very much different from one another. But the European UBF chapters must accept whatever the education program that this committee, which is made up with only USA UBF leaders, develops since European UBF chapters do not have any representives in this committee. By excluding members from other contries, John Jun can use the education program that this committee develops to increase his power in UBF. Another thing to note is that the committee members are all males. But I have to admit that this committee is a great improvement compared to any committee existed during the administration of Dr. Samuel Lee. When Dr. Samuel Lee was running UBF, he was the only member of any committee in UBF and everyone had to obey whatever program he came up with.
