South Korean Pastor's Baby Box Ministry Continues, Saves 250 Babies Each Year

Kelli : Jan 2, 2020  LiveAction.org

"You could've chosen to abort the child, but you didn't, and saved that baby's life. And you brought the baby here, so we want to thank you." -Lim Sun Ju, Jusarang Community's Manager, speaking of the babies' mothers

Pastor Lee says that the ministry takes in 220-250 babies yearly.

About 60% of the others, he says, are teens—one he recalls was as young as 13. Some of the babies have disabilities, some have been conceived in rape or incest, and some are left in the baby box because of other difficult circumstances...
