Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.
(Hebrews 12:1)

North Korean NGO calls for increase in home visitations following defector starvation

Voice of the Martyrs Korea today rejected calls for increased government aid for North Korean defectors and instead issued a challenge to churches and North Korean defector Christians themselves to substantially increase their home visitation of North Korean defectors.

The challenge comes in the wake of the death due to starvation of a North Korean woman identified as Ms. Han and her 6-year old son earlier this month. The death has led many North Korean defector advocates to call for increased welfare programs and payments for defectors.

But Voice of the Martyrs representative Hyun Sook Foley says that the key to preventing future deaths is not more government aid but...

Pastor Tim's Prayer Points
  • Praise – So far, we have sent over 28,000 Bibles to North Korea through the air, by sea and over land!

  • Pray for the complete healing of our former student Mrs. L. She lent money to another NK woman and when she went to collect the money, the woman beat her up. Although her injuries were not serious, her health began to decline in the months that followed so much so that her friends thought she was nearing the end of her life. After VOMK workers visited her and shared with her the importance of extending forgiveness to others, she has almost made a full recovery. Her injuries were not only physical, but also spiritual!

  • One of the greatest ways that our North Korean Underground University (missionary training school) students grow is through short-term missions trips to share the gospel with North Koreans around the world. During the fall they will be taking several trips. Please pray that Lord would go before them and prepare the hearts of those they will speak to. Also pray that the UU students would learn to rely on God rather than their own wisdom and strength.
