Jung Myung Seok was born on March 16, 1945 and was the third eldest of seven children. He was born in the mountain valley of Wolmyeongdong. It was a dreadful place for him. Even though he wanted to farm, there was not enough land. Even though he worked to the point his body felt like collapsing, he could not fill his empty stomach. He grew up suffering.
Suffering from hunger in the midst of a dreadful poverty, Jung Myung Seok began his life of faith and started to believe in God at the beckoning of his eldest brother. As a result, he has become a world renown pastor who delivers messages to over 50 nations across the world.
In this archives, you can read his messages, particularly in relation to Wolmyeongdong and its backstory. Although he used to hate Wolmyeongdong because of how barren it was, Wolmyeongdong is now a place God uses to give inspiration to him and many people.
