Torrey's sowing of seeds for revival. A food monitor for three-and-a-half months in North Korea, Torrey is chairman of the board of trustees of Jesus Abbey, Taebaek, Kangwon Do, South Korea. He and his wife, Liz, live at Jesus Abbey (www.jabbey.org), where they are developing the River of Life School and the Three Seas Training Center.
