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)
Pastor and Dr. Foley are not the only ones who preach!
It is important for all Christians to be able to preach, pray, or die at any moment,
and VOMK staff, students, and volunteers are trained to be prepared to do so.

Nothing to Pity: God's Purpose for the Pain of a Sex-Trafficked North Korean Woman

Join us in remembering faithful North Korean missionary, Mrs. Hong.

Like many North Korean women, Mrs. Hong was sex-trafficked into China. Unlike many North Korean women, however, the man who bought Mrs. Hong, an atheist, allowed her to attend church. He even welcomed the congregation into their home. Still, conditions at home were miserable and Mrs. Hong eagerly looked for opportunities to defect to South Korea.

Then, one day, during a worship service at their home, Mrs. Hong's husband, still an atheist, wrote a poem: "Every moment, we have Jesus Christ. We believe him and have freedom in him." At that moment, Mrs. Hong cried and repented. She realized that God was using her to reach her husband. Although it was difficult, Mrs. Hong remained with her husband to evangelize and disciple him. When she was miraculously healed of her lung cancer, her husband finally accepted Christ and was later baptized.

Then the cancer returned...

Pastor Tim's Prayer Points
  • Praise – We praise the Lord for the Chinese underground church leaders who have recently received training on how to be faithful to the Lord in the midst of severe persecution.

  • Mrs. Hong’s long battle with cancer recently ended as she went to be home with the Lord. She was sex-trafficked out of NK, but the Lord transformed her marriage to a Chinese man. Since she was an NK defector (in China) who had no citizenship, her family is facing the challenge of preparing to do a proper funeral service. Although she desired to see her hometown in North Korea before she died, she is experiencing that fact that her true home is with the Lord Jesus Christ! Please pray for her husband’s growth in the Lord and his grief process.

  • Please pray for the members of the Shouwang Church in Beijing who just had their church shut down in March of this year. For years, the members of the church have been meeting in small groups all over Beijing for weekly worship. They worship outside in the winter, spring, summer or fall . . . snow, rain or sun. The shutting down of the church in March hasn’t affected them too much, because they have already been meeting in this fashion for years. Pray that they would continue to be a faithful witness to Jesus Christ, even in the midst of this persecution from the government.
