Sacramento Korean Baptist Church

This past week my wife and I were invited to dinner by Barry Bauer, the English Ministry Pastor at Sacramento Korean Baptist Church, and his wife Jayne, who is the Communications Coordinator for the California Southern Baptist Disaster Relief Ministries.  It was a wonderful time of fellowship!  I asked Pastor Barry what the Lord was doing in his ministry during this challenging time, and this is what he said:

For the past three and a half months the world has struggled with the coronavirus pandemic. As a pastor, I have also experienced isolation from family and friends, as well as members of our congregation. That has been a real struggle for me. However, there have been wonderful moments during this time of lockdown. 

On Mothers Day members of the Sacramento Korean Baptist Church leadership team delivered roses and cards to all the moms in the congregation. We practiced safe separation while wearing our masks and gloves. 

It was a special moment for the members, as well as the pastors and their wives, to see people we hadn't been able to be with for 2 months. We were able to pray with each person we visited and to catch up with them on what was going on in their lives.

As the body of Christ, we are one even if we are physically separated. We are blessed to have this special relationship. I cherish the members of our church and love that we are able to meet in person again on Sunday morning. This ordeal will pass in time.

Thank you, Pastor Barry!  Proverbs 12:25 says, "Anxiety in a man’s heart weighs it down, but a good word makes it glad."  May the Lord continue to encourage us and use us to encourage others.

Looking forward,

Pastor Ron Prosise
