Peter Ro (MTS 2001), was swept up in a monsoon in his native Korea and almost drowned. Now he studies acid rain – which is not as immediately devastating but equally destructive. “Air pollution is more threatening than global warming,” says Peter, a senior scientist at Environment Canada for the last 25 years. Peter has been part of the Canadian team that developed the method to standardize and analyze acid rain data. Their findings suggest that over 20 years, reduction of the amount of coal being burnt in the United States has significantly reduced the amount of acid rain in Canada.
These results bring Peter joy. Peter sees himself as a Pastor of God’s creation and credits Tyndale for helping him gain confidence in God and what he believes in. “My work isn’t just a job,” says Peter. “A pastor takes care of people. I take care of what God created.”
When you give to Tyndale, you help shape people like Peter to live a relevant and robust faith in a complex world. Your giving literally restores the earth as Tyndale alumni like Peter are led by the Spirit to redeem fallen creation.
