WHEAT MISSION SOCIETY
Non-profit organization for people with special needs
Wheat (Milal) Mission Society in Vancouver is a branch of the World Association of Milal’s America Division, which has first operated unofficially since 1999 and was officially established in August 2001. It is a registered non-profit charity organization in BC, and a service provider of CLBC (Community Living British Columbia) for people with special needs. We offer a wide variety of programs, and act as a bridge to connect Korean communities affected by special needs to Canadian welfare service agencies and benefits.
We have been serving the special-needs community with three main objectives: spreading our message of hope and love (evangelism), serving to improve their difficult living conditions (service) and educating public about special needs (enlightenment).
How the "Wheat Mission Society" Started
Wheat Mission Society was founded on Oct. 16, 1979, in South Korea. When proper awareness and perspective on people with special needs were non-existent in South Korea, the Society had three objectives: evangelism, service, and enlightenment.
In July 1993, the Society established Miral Welfare Foundation (“Miral/Milal” is a Korean pronunciation of “Wheat”), and continued its operational campaigns by setting up dozens of local branches,
missionary/leadership training institutes, schools and vocational training facilities for people with special needs.
Under the same spirit and objectives, the movement spread to the US in 1987, as well as other parts in the world such as Europe and Canada. On March 30, 1995, the branches scattered throughout the world formed the World Association of Milal, signaling the beginning of a global missionary organization.
The Wheat Mission movement has spread in over 100 parts of the world, and aims toward an establishment of 1000 worldwide locations. The Society is advancing in prayer to spread the living gospel and the true love of Jesus to over 600 million individuals with disabilities.
