2nd gen Dr. Joseph Ahn Jr's Life Testimony
Stay in This Land
God’s Calling To Become a Second Generation Missionary

God called my parents Missionary Joseph and Maria Ahn in the 1966 in the early pioneering ministry of Seoul Korea UBF. I was born in the summer of 1975, during the first historical International Summer Bible Conference at Niagara Falls. When I was young, my father was out of the country for nine years serving God in Spain, Guatemala and Mexico alone while my mother served God’s work in Seoul. My father had to endure the pain of being called “Uncle” each time he returned to Korea because I did not recognize him. They both sacrificed much including their dreams of sweet family life to follow God’s calling in their lives. As I grow older and have a family of my own, I have come to appreciate and admire their decisions of faith to live a mission centered life. Their lives are living reminders to me of the truth in Matthew 6:33, “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness and all these things will be given to you as well.”

In 1983 my family was briefly reunited in beautiful Niagara Falls at another International Summer Bible Conference. But after the conference, Dr. Samuel Lee asked my mother if she could leave me in Chicago and go back to Korea alone. She took it seriously and decided to offer me to God as Abraham offered Isaac. It would be a life changing decision, on which God would begin his training on my life.

At the age of 8 in America, I was a mischievous troublemaker at school and at church who struggled with loneliness, and homesickness. I often didn’t want to go to sleep because I was afraid I might dream of my mother. But Dr. Lee and Missionary Grace A. Lee cared for me for one year at their house. I learned obedience through hair-curl permanent training and discipline through daily memorization and English training. I learned to overcome the difficult situation. I upset many mothers because I hit their sons and teased their daughters. They all came to complain to Dr. Lee but he protected me and encouraged me in prayer to grow like the boy Jesus. I could not let my son Abraham go to another country by himself at the age of 8, but I believe that it was my Father God who led me to America to prepare me to grow as his useful servant. It was God’s wonderful grace and unique plan to help me meet him as my Heavenly Father.

In God’s time, our family reunited in Mexico City and moved to New York City in while {sic} my father served at the United Nations.

I wanted to comment, but I was lost for words about such sillyness. I remember him being my Bible study group leader at the MSU in 1996 or so. Gratefull for hair-curl permanent training? And he did not even mention the worst physical abuse done to him because it is so embarrassing and revealing. He still covers up for Lee and is thankful for such moronic and sadistic nonsense, justifying any past and future UBF abuse. He is a victim, but also an enabler and supporter, hence a culprit. He should be old enough; his foolishness and the power of brainwashing will not be an excuse for him in front of God. Indoctrination is powerful, but some people are just too compliant in letting that happen to them and others.

"In fact, you even put up with anyone who enslaves you or exploits you or takes advantage of you or pushes himself forward or slaps you in the face."

"Mark my words! I, Paul, tell you that if you let yourselves be circumcised, Christ will be of no value to you at all."

If he would admit that Lee's dealing with him and his family were worst kinds of abuse over years, he would have to admit that he and his parents were morons in letting this be done to them. He probably prefers to be considered "wise" for tolerating that abuse and even being thankful. But

Woe to those who call evil good
and good evil,
who put darkness for light
and light for darkness,
who put bitter for sweet
and sweet for bitter.
