Filipino pastors and Koreans

I was with some independent Filipino pastors in Manila. I tried to help them in a way. Korean churches give them money each month. Delays in the money. Worried, they tried to "impress" the Koreans to turn things around. Even in the prayer time, the word "impress Koreans" came up. After the prayer, I told the pastors, "Impress God, not the Koreans!" I got troubled inside. Even pastors may get confused or misguided. I hope I'm just over-reacting.
