This month’s featured Coalition member is David Beccue.
Working internationally as a software engineer and business owner, his chief aspiration is to know, love, and serve GOD well with what he’s been given.
He also shares our Core Value of all-inclusive care: “I’m really attracted to the model of addressing people’s needs so holistically: health, spirit, vocation, politics, worldview, etc.”
But that love for the whole person isn’t just a pithy abstraction. For David, caring for others begins with the person next door and extends outward:
“Continue to love people around you, but don’t neglect getting involved in ministering to the whole world as well. Organizations like PLC are a great way to lengthen your arms to serve people where your legs don’t travel.”
So if you haven’t perused our Core Values lately, I’d encourage you to go check them out. We want you to know exactly what the Coalition is all about and what we’re asking you to take part in. Then, if you like what you see, go add us on Facebook so we can stay in touch.
There is no Coalition without you!

Take a minute to meet Ricky and Julie Kim. Ricky works as a software engineer out of Dallas, Texas and is a regular supporter of sick kids in Iraq.
Originally from South Korea, Ricky moved to the United States 5 years ago after accepting a great job offer. But things weren’t always so nice for Ricky. Growing up in the wake of the Korean War, he saw the challenges his country faced and was inspired by the foreign aide his family received, so now he wants to extend that same kindness to others:
“Just as our country could overcome their desparate situation with help from others, I would like to help the people of Iraq have hope for their future.”
Ricky knows the difficulties of growing up in a post-war environment first-hand, and it’s that understanding that compels him toward compassion.
So on behalf of countless Iraqi children: thanks, Ricky, and thanks to all the rest of you who are working toward this same “hopeful future” for Iraq that Ricky is.
