After the bereavement of his wife 7 years ago, he went through a difficult life, and recently had a brain hemorrhage surgery and even a fire
(Gwinnett County, Georgia) The house of Pastor Moses Lee (Korean name: Lee Bang-seok), a Korean missionary, was destroyed by a fire early in the morning on the 22nd (Tue).
The Gwinnett Fire Department said the house was “burnt down after using the fireplace early Tuesday morning.”
They also said they sent workers to the scene of a house fire on the southwest side of Jack Russell Run in Lilburn at 1:03 a.m. to find a two-story house that caught fire that day.
Homeowner Rev. Moses Lee told firefighters that when he returned from being abroad for several months, he found that the house’s natural gas supply had stopped, and because of the cold temperatures, he lit a gas fireplace.
“I heard a crackling sound from inside the wall and when I touched it, the wall felt hot,” he said.
Missionary Moses Lee told Channel 2 reporter Matt Janson that he is a pastor and is more grateful than ever for surviving the fire.
“My friend is alive, this friend is alive, I am alive, praise the Lord. It’s amazing that the Lord protects us,” he said in a public interview.
The fire department confirmed that the smoke alarms in the house were not working.
Firefighters began to put out the fire, and after a thorough house search, it was confirmed that everyone got out safely.
The fire was ruled an accident.
As a result of the Global News Today’s coverage, Rev. Moses Lee visited Korea last May for missionary work, but as soon as he landed at the airport, he suffered a brain hemorrhage and underwent emergency brain surgery.
Missionary Moses Lee, who was revived dramatically, was advised by his medical staff not to board the plane for the time being, and with the help of his acquaintances, he stayed in Korea for six months and continued his missionary work.
In Atlanta, he pioneered the Jesus Mission Church under Kingdomizer and spread his influence, but seven years ago, his wife suddenly died and he has been struggling.
Missionary Moses Lee could not return to Atlanta from Korea due to brain hemorrhage surgery.
However he returned to his Atlanta home bravely on the 15th of November, but lost the house he had lived in for 20 years in a fire.
