Sunye & James Pak
After the devastating earthquake that hit Haiti in 2010, James felt the calling to serve God there as a missionary. He joined a mission organization called Global Assistance Partners in Haiti (GAP Haiti) as the Director of Operations. While serving the Lord there, he met his wife, Sunye, who came as a volunteer to support the ministries in his organization.
Sunye, who is a well-known singer in South Korea, formally part of a K-pop group called the Wonder Girls, was in the United States at the time on tour to expand the group’s global presence. However, Sunye’s plans and vision for her life were drastically changed after her trip to Haiti. In 2013, James and Sunye were married and they both felt the calling to live in Haiti together as missionaries along with their newborn baby. After serving in Haiti for another 2 years together, they felt God calling them back to Canada and they had two more beautiful daughters since then.
Now, James is serving as the International Ministry Manager at the Bible League of Canada (BLC) and Sunye is enjoying her new life as a wife and mom of three daughters.
