Tuesday, February 3
The Presbytery of Hanmi was dissolved by action of the 221st General Assembly (2014) in Detroit effective June 21, 2014. The congregations and ministers of the presbytery are being transferred into the geographic presbyteries where they are located within the Synod of Southern California and Hawaii.
Please pray for these Korean-speaking members of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) as we move forward with the transitions.
—Ruling Elder Doska Ross, executive and stated clerk, Synod of Southern California and Hawaii

Holy and loving God, you speak to us in all languages and from all perspectives. We give thanks for the ministry of Hanmi Presbytery over the last 30 years and pray that their passion for mission and love of Christ will be multiplied in their new context. Thanks be to God for their witness! Amen.
(BOP) Board of Pensions (OGA) Office of the General Assembly (PMA) Presbyterian Mission Agency It took me a while to find this information. I agree with Zulma that an explanation for the acronyms should be provided and not simply assume that every reader is familiar with their meaning.
BOP, OGA, PMA While you may know (or not) what each acronym means, many of us lay leader, specially those who speak another language, do not. Is it possible to write what they stand for on the the page or at a page we can refer to?
