Dr. Kahala Cannon began her missionary visit through Mid-America May 1. Kahala, a member of Mississippi Boulevard Christian Church in Memphis, TN is a dentist who has practiced dentistry in Tenessee and New York City. After taking part in People to People trips through Global Ministries, she received a call to serve in India at Mungali. There she continued her practice as well as taught in the nursing school. From there, Kahala found herself in a whole new ministry in South Korea.
In Korea Kahala taught English for grades 1-12. She also was a part of the witness of prayer for the re-unification of the Korean peninsula. She shares that despite the uneasiness of the 64 year old cease fire which separates the Korean people there is no fear of aggression from the north as there is an understanding that they are family. Just as God brought down the Berlin wall and united Germany, hope is the day will come God will bring down the wall separating families in Korea.
Global Ministries, the joint overseas ministry of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and the United Church of Christ, thanks all the churches and persons from across Mid-America for being gracious hosts for Kahala. Her visit concluded on May 31st.
