Location: The Shoreline Church Facility



One frigid winter, a pastor finds an abandoned infant on his church steps and builds a heated hatch to rescue any others. The Drop Box tells the true story of South Korean pastor Lee Jong-rak and his heroic efforts to embrace and protect abandoned children. It is a story about the forgotten, the disabled, the discarded, and the man who gives everything to protect them.

More than a quarter million people saw the theatrical release of The Drop Box, and we are so pleased to bring another showing to The Shoreline Church! The filmmaker, Brian Ivie, is a San Clemente High School graduate.

The Drop Box tells the story of South Korean pastor Lee Jong-rak and his heroic efforts to embrace and protect the most vulnerable members of society. It is a heart-wrenching exploration of the physical, emotional and financial toll associated with providing refuge to orphans that would otherwise be abandoned on the streets. But The Drop Box movie is also a story of hope—a reminder that every human life is sacred and worthy of love.

South Korea is not the only country grappling with the issue of orphan care. Around the world, there are more than 150 million orphans waiting for forever families to call their own.

On the night of the event, we will have a few orphan care agencies represented, offering ways to educate yourself on these issues further, as well as opportunities to get involved. Because in the end, building more “baby boxes” is not the answer. Rather, we must work toward a day when they are no longer necessary, when all human life is embraced for its inherent value and purpose.

Pastor Lee would be the first to agree: “I always pray that there will be no more abandoned babies in this country and no more in our baby box. That’s all I want.”
