The Mission Yearbook for Prayer and Study is a daily devotional with 365 inspiring mission stories that come from next door and all across the globe. It inspires thousands of Presbyterians daily as they uphold the mission of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) in intercessory prayer. The stories in the 2013 Mission Yearbook were gathered around the question of Jesus to his disciples, “How many loaves have you?” from Mark 6:38. The book is filled with stories of God’s abundance in the face of overwhelming needs and a scarcity of resources.

PRESBYTERY OF WESTERN KENTUCKY - After more than 30 years of preparation, the Presbytery of Western Kentucky “grows” a new church development! What began years ago as an outreach to students at Murray State finally has taken root as a “beautiful church” in Murray. The Areumdaum Woori (our beautiful) Church was commissioned by the presbytery on November 13, 2011, and the presbytery installed Hui Dae (David) Tark as pastor. Additionally, after months of preparation, the commission ordained and installed six ruling elders who would form the session.
The Areumdaum Woori Church began as a campus ministry of First Presbyterian Church in Murray that reached out to Korean students and instructors at Murray State University. The campus ministry program would flourish and then lie dormant as students came and went.
