Gary (Sungchul) Moon is a missionary with the General Board of Global Ministries of The United Methodist Church. He was commissioned in October 2009 and assigned to open and direct Angel’s Haven Orphanage, a facility for children with HIV/AIDS in Chiang Mai, Thailand (located about 420 miles north of Bangkok).


Angel’s Haven opened in October 2010 to provide a safe environment and personal care for some of the open HIV/AIDS children in Thailand. It is among the first social ministries of the church in Thailand, where United Methodist mission work is a fairly recent addition to the Southeast Asia Mission Initiative.


Gary and his wife, Cindy, also a missionary, are from Southern California in the California-Pacific Annual Conference, and are members of Covenant United Methodist Church, a Korean-American congregation in Pomona. They spent seven years in preparation for mission service after experiencing a call during a training program offered in Los Angeles by a Korea-based organization. Gary says that he encountered Jesus personally and experienced the Holy Spirit on a retreat in 1998. He was a chiropractor by profession before entering full-time mission work.


He has been affiliated with a number of medical centers in the Los Angeles area, and received his training at the Cleveland Chiropractic College in that city.


The Moons are the parents of three grown children, Hanah, Michael, and Sarah.
