The seeds of Thy work were planted in Korea only a third of a century ago, when, amidst the thunders of war, a few of Thy faithful sons in military service exemplified the teachings of the gospel in their lives and shared them with a few of those they met. Then Thou didst touch the heart of a great and good scholar and leader, Kim Ho Jik, while he was studying in the United States. When he returned to his native land, having experienced the inspiration of the Book of Mormon, and having received a testimony of the prophetic call of Joseph Smith, he shared with others the beauty of his newly found treasure. Missionaries were invited to Korea, and here they taught with faith and inspiration, finding one soul here, another there.
