Pray for Lonely, Socially-Distanced NK Defectors and Our Students Who Visit Them: Please pray for the physical and mental health of lonely, socially-distanced NK defectors living in South Korea. North Koreans living in South Korea have the highest rate of death due to suicide among people groups in the world. Even among our students, we are shocked when they tell us testimonies of how God saved them from suicide attempts or to helped them kick their addiction to anti-depressants and sleeping pills. Many of them tell us that reading the word of God and going to our two training schools helps curb their depression. Please pray for God to use His Word and His body to save their bodies and souls.
Fear Among North Korean Defectors– Especially in light of the fact that the current South Korean government is becoming friendly with the North Korean government, quite a few of our students are fearing for their lives. Some of them, like UT student Mr. Min, are well-known to the North Korean government. Many still have families in North Korea and are afraid that, if the North Korean government were to become aware of them, their family members would be targeted. Please pray for them not to act out of fear, but to keep their minds stayed on the Lord and trust Him as He keeps them in perfect peace (Isaiah 26:3).
