전 구 (니까라구아)

소망 니카라구아 후원자님들께,

지난 6 월 22일 무죄판결을 받은 이후 전구선교사는 우리의 기대와는 달리 아직도 석방되지 못하고 도리어 니까라구아 현지 사정은 점점더 힘들어지는 상황입니다. 

 

외국인으로서 첫번재판에서 승소하여 무죄판결을 받은 경우가 너무 희귀하기 때문에 전구선교사를 석방하는 것을 두고 정부관리 사이에서 많은 혼선을 빚고 있는 상황입니다.  관련 정부인사가 선듯나서서 석방허가를 결정하지 못하고 이런저런 서류를 요구하며 시간을 지체하는 상황입니다.  외국인이기 때문에 문제가 더욱 복잡한것 같습니다. 그곳 이민국에서 석방허가가 나와야 한답니다. 서류를 제출하고 이민국의 결정을 기다리고 있습니다. 내일 목요일까지 결정여부를 알려준다고 합니다. 석방허가가 나오도록 기도하고 있습니다. 

만일 석방허가가 나오지 않으면 전구선교사를 석방시키기위한 캠페인을 이곳 미국에서 벌여야 할지도 모릅니다. 그렇 경우 여러분의 적극적인 도움과 참여가 필요할 것 입니다.  현재 이곳 미국 대사관에서는 니카라구아 정부측에 조속한 석방을 요청하는 외교서신을 (diplomatic letter of complaint), 우리 변호인측에서는 이곳 인권기관에 항의 서신을 제출했습니다. 

내일이 또 한번의 고비가 될 것 같습니다. 전구선교사도 저도 많이힘들고 지쳐 있습니다. 도무지 이해가 안되는 상황의 연속입니다. 하나님께서 다시한번 기적을 베풀어 주셔서 석방의 소식을 주시기를 함께 간절히 기도해 주시길 부탁드립니다. 

여러분의 기도와 사랑에 감사드리며,
한미경 선교사 드림

Dear Hope Nicaragua Supporters,


Contrary to our hope for an immediate release after the not guilty verdict, Missionary Matthew Jun is still in jail, and the situation does not seem to be improving. 
As a foreigner, receiving a not guilty verdict on his first trial is uncommon, and there seems to be some political and selfish motivations behind it all, none of which are specific or clear enough for us to understand. We are hoping by Thursday to get some answers. 
The US Embassy in Managua has written a diplomatic letter of complaint, and our lawyers are filing a complaint to the Nicaraguan Human Rights Organization. 

If he is not released this week, we intend to begin a campaign to gain the support of US congressmen and the Nicaraguan Embassy in the US. At that time, we will seek your active assistance. 

We are trying our best to stay faithful, but we are also exhausted. Please pray for both Matthew and my perseverance and faith, knowing our mighty God is in control and that He does not make any mistakes. Please continue to pray until Matthew is with us!

Blessed by your prayers and love,
Jennifer Jun
