Homicide rises in Washington D.C. and Children’s health concern

As of June 23, 2022, Homicides are rising in Washington D.C. and it is having an impact on children’s health, physically and psychologically. As Children are less safe while they are playing outside, after school. As such, most of the children remain stuck in their houses. In recent years, parents fear unexpected events happening in their kid’s schools and playgrounds.

In less than half a year, 80 homicides occurred, and only 33% of cases resolved to date. According to DCHomicides.com, children who live in the Southeast, Northeast, and Central zone of D.C. are prone to get exposed to the crimes.

Homicide methods are by gun (69 cases), knife (7), and others (4). Average victims’ ages are 35 and the average arrestee’s age is 29.

Recently, A 15-year-old teenage boy was shot and died at the scene of a small musical event, where he called his mother before death. No one could help him despite there being a crowd, other than a wounded police officer.

Why do we hear about homicide news which is related to gun violence every single day? Don’t we have any solutions? Do we have any preventive programs? IF there are no healthy children, there will be no healthy future.

An earthquake erupted at the border of Afghanistan and Pakistan killing more than 1,000 and Injuring 1,600 people on early Wednesday. This earthquake struck 28 miles southwest of the provincial capital of Khost, the USGS stated.

Since the Taliban took over Afghanistan, its economic crisis and humanitarian issues became further widespread. Now another disaster comes in a form of an earthquake, hitting the area which needed help,  “Nearly all government and private hospitals are full of victims,” said Awal Khan Zadran, a doctor in the Urgun district of Paktika. some of the victims were transported to Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan by helicopters and other transportations.

According to The NYT, Afghanistan was operating off of foreign funds before the US troop withdrawal. Since the Taliban takeover, foreign aids from Western donors are being much withheld, especially after the Taliban issued edicts barring girls from attending secondary schools and restricting women’s rights.

The Biden administration states that it is seeking a way to help Afghanistan from the earthquake.

Heavy rains and wildfires Lay Siege to more than 13 States in the US

Overheated air temperatures have brought heavy storms and wildfires to at least 13 states in the US since Monday.  We don’t expect wildfires in Alaska, but this time it happened 23 times, now one of 6 states dealing with wildfires. As of June 14, 40 large fires have occurred and burnt 1 million-acre of land in 6 states.

Severe storms hit more than 7 states from West to East, and at least a half-million residents are out of power. Yellow Stone National Park closed due to the heavy rain which led to flooding and left more than 10,000 people stranded. Yellowstone flooding hit a neighboring town and submerged houses in the State of Montana. The Governor of Montana has declared a state emergency.

A 10-year-old boy from Milwaukee, Wisconsin was swept away by the sudden rise of water. It was reported that his father and a neighborhood man jumped into the water to rescue him, but eventually he was found dead. Two people went missing in the sudden rapids.

Two people Fall into a Chocolate Tank, Requiring Rescue

On Thursday, The Mars Wrigley factory in Pennsylvania stopped its operation due to an incident involving two people who fell into a tank full of chocolate. Obviously, two people were rescued by the team of Lancaster County 911.

According to CNN, two people were transported to the local hospital. One of them was rescued by helicopter.

The extent of their injuries is unknown.

“Fire crews have eliminated pulling them straight out of a tank,” Brad Wolfe, communications supervisor for Lancaster County 911 dispatch, told CNN earlier on Thursday. “They have to cut a hole in the side of the tank to get them out,” he said.

Wolfe said that it’s unclear how the people fell into the chocolate tank. No injuries have been reported at this time, according to Wolfe.

A Mars Wrigley spokesperson told CNN: “We are actively managing the situation and our primary focus is supporting emergency teams on site.”

Chocolate factory incidents have happened from leaking chocolate from the factory to covering the street in Germany in 2018, and ‘Chocolate snow’ falls in the Swiss town after the Lindt Chocolate factory explosion in 2020 in recent history. Many chocolate factories are located in Pennsylvania including Hershey Chocolate factory.

Gun Violence at Manufacturing Plant in MD Leaves 3 dead, 1 injured

Almost every single day, Americans die from gun violence and lawmakers are at a tug-of-war on gun law reform. Less than a month after the Uvalde elementary school shooting killed 21 people, the House of Representatives has finally passed a law restricting gun sales to those over the age of 21.
On Thursday, three people were killed in a shooting at a manufacturing plant in Smithsburg, Maryland, and a state trooper was shot by the shooter. The suspect is at large, and the state trooper was transported from the scene to the hospital due to injury.
According to Gov. Larry Hogan at a conference, he stated, “The State Police responded, pursued the suspect, the suspect fired and shot the state trooper in the shoulder, who then returned fire and shot him back,”.
“Gunshots were exchanged between the suspect and the Trooper. Both were injured and transported for medical treatment,” the release says.
This incident is the 254th mass shooting this year, according to CNN.

Washington County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Carly Hose said the suspect was a man, but she didn’t yet know other details about the shooting, like whether the shooter was an employee of Columbia Machine.

The shooting happened around 2:30 p.m. ET, authorities said. Columbia Machine is located about 75 miles west of Baltimore.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives office in Baltimore and the FBI each said agents are assisting the sheriff’s office with the incident.

British Journalist and Brazilian Indigenous Affairs Expert Missing in the Amazon

 
Last Sunday, a British journalist, Dom Philps, who works for The Guardian as an Amazon specialist contributor, and a Brazilian indigenous affairs expert, Bruno Araújo Pereira went missing in the Vale do Javari, the Amazon jungle. The families of the pair are asking the authorities to intensify the effort in their search. The journalist from Britain was approaching news of illegal mines and drug trafficking in the Amazonian jungle with the Brazilian indigenous affairs expert.
According to CNN,

“The British journalist, Dom Phillips, and Bruno Araújo Pereira were first reported missing in the remote Javari Valley, in the far western part of Amazonas state on Sunday. They had reportedly received death threats just days prior.”

Phillips’s wife, Alessandra Sampaio, posted a video on Tuesday pleading for the federal government to step up in their search operations, saying, “We still have a little bit of hope that we’ll find them.”

“Even if they don’t find the love of my life alive, they have to be found, please,” she said.

The area of the Javari Valley is home to 16 isolated groups and thousands of indigenous people in the Javari Valley, and it isn’t easy to reach out to the communities. The area has come under different rules for life, and the area is continuing to become home to increasing numbers of illegal miners, loggers, hunters, and international drug traffickers exploiting the peoples who live in the jungles.

They were supposed to arrive at the borders of the valley and Peru to take a two-hour trip to Atalaia do Norte on Sunday, but they didn’t show up.

Dano Festival, the most Masculine Yang Day in the Lunar Calendar

단오에 씨름대회를 하는 이유 [허준혁한방]

​오늘은 음력 5월5일 단오이다. 예로부터 3월 3일, 5월 5일, 6월 6일, 7월 7일 등 월과 일이 동일한 날은 양기가 가득 찬 길일로 생각했다. 그 중 5월 5일을 가장 양기가 센 날이라 하였으며, 단오날 씨름대회를 여는 것도 같은 맥락이다.

​이때쯤 모내기를 끝내고 휴식을 가지며 풍년을 기원하는 제사이기도 한 단오는 설날, 한식, 추석과 함께 우리나라 4대 명절중 하나이다. 추위가 오래가는 북한은 이즈음 날이 완전히 풀리기 때문에 추석에 버금가는 명절이기도 하다.

단오 전날 밤 남정네들은 횃불을 밝히고 그네 줄을 만든다. 짚으로 굵은 그네 줄을 엮어 마을에서 가장 큰 나무에 그네를 맨다. 단오날 여인들은 창포물에 머리를 감고 그네놀이를 했다. 이몽룡이 춘향에게 마음을 빼앗긴 것도 그네 뛰는 모습 때문이었다.

단오에 그네를 뛰면 여름 모기에 물리지 않고 더위를 먹지 않는다고도 했다. 그네는 중력에 도전하는 표상이기도 하다. 지상으로부터 벗어나 자유롭게 날고 싶은 욕구의 표출…

​단오에는 창포주를 마시며 단오 때만 볼 수 있는 준치로 끓여낸 준치탕… ​’썩어도 준치’ 라는 말도 그 뛰어난 맛에서 유래되었다.

수리취떡을 빚고 수레바퀴 모양의 떡살을 찍어 먹었다. 수레바퀴처럼 잘 굴러 가라는 의미였다. 오늘을 계기로 모든 일들이 수레바퀴처럼 잘 굴러가시길요…

2022 KIMNET IMLF Hosts A Forum For World Ministry Leaders

2022 국제선교지도자포럼에 다녀와서 ..( 맨 오른쪽: 허인욱 허인욱 순회 시니어 선교사)

허 인 욱 순회 시니어선교사 ( 전 월드시니어선교회 대표 )

지난 5월 24일부터 26일까지 시애틀 형제교회에서 KIMNET ( 국제선교동역네트워 : 상임대표 최일식목사 )가 주최한
국제선교지도자포럼이 120여명의 선교사와 선교단체, 그리고 교회 대표자들이 참가한 가운데 있었다.
금년으로 20회를 맞이하는 김넷의 선교네트워크 행사를 창립 50주년을 맞은 시애틀의 형제교회 ( 담임목사 : 권 준)가
초대하여 코로나19로 움추렸던 한인선교사들과 선교단체의 활성화를 다짐하는 행사였다.

비교적 오랜 역사를 자랑하는 미주지역에서 활동하는 12개 선교단체들 { Compassion, Food for the hungry, GSM ( the good shepherd mission ) , I.E.A. ( 국제복음주의협회 ), INTERCP (인터콥 ), UBF ( university bible fellowship ), GP ( global partners, USA ) , SEED ( 시드선교회 ) , 4/14 윈도우운동, GSGM ( Gospel Supporting Global MIssion ), PGM ( 세계전문인선교 ) , GMI ( Grace Ministies International ) } 대표자들이 자신들의 사역을 소개하고
이들을 서로 네트워크 시켜서 상호 협력할 수 있도록 KIMNET ( kingdom Inter-mission network ) 은 지난 20년동안 노력해왔다.

한국은 1974년 24명의 선교사들이 처음 파송된 후에, 40여년만에 2015년 12월 통계로 234개 선교단체와 교단을 통해 조사된 결과 171 개국에 27,205명의 선교사가 파송되어 전세계에서 미국 다음으로 많은 선교사를 파송하는 나라가 되었다.

한국교회와 해외 한인들의 복음전파에 대한 열정과 노력이 지구상 어디에서도 볼 수 없었던 놀라운 하나님의 축복을 보여주고 있어서. 선교지마다 희망이 되고 있다.
각각 자기가 살고있고, 사역하고 있는 지역에서 우물안의 개구리처럼 사역하던 사람들이 함께 모여서 하나님이 꿈꾸시는 거대한 선교전략을 마치 퍼즐맞추기처럼
큰 그림을 볼 수있는 기회를 제공한 2022년 국제선교지도자 포럼이었다.

미국의 수도 워싱턴지역에서 잘하면 전세계 어디에서나 잘할수 있다는 생각으로 창립된
월드시니어선교회는 시니어선교시대를 맞이하여 아주 어린아이와도 같은 단체이지만,
이번 포럼에 귀한 초청을 받아서 시니어사역에 대한 비전을 제시함으로써
그동안 오랫동안 사역해온 단체들과 함께 은퇴하는 이민1세들이 인생의 마지막 챕터를
하나님 나라의 확장에 쓰임받을 수 있도록 안내하는 사역을 해서,
1만명의 시니어선교사를 동원, 준비해서 하나님이 조국통일의 기회를 주신다면
기꺼이 북한동포들을 섬기러 갈 준비를 할 수 있도록 하겠다는 결의를 다짐하며
참석자들을 도전했다.

창립50주년을 맞이한 시애틀형제교회가 전세계에서 선교하는 선교사와 선교단체 관계자들을 초대해서 벌인 잔치는 교인들의 정성스런 대접으로 매일 제공되는 풍성한 식사와 간식으로 예술품같이 제공되는 다과가 참석자 모두를 감동과 감사로 넘치게 했다.

www.godsends.org 에서는 선교사와 선교사를 후원하는 평신도들을 매칭시켜주는 플랫폼을 만들어서 지구촌화된 시대에 전방선교사와 후방선교사를 연결해주는 효과적인 도구로 쓰임받을 수 있도록 준비하고 있다고 사역을 소개했다.
