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)
Last week, Susanna and Esther Koh,
wife and daughter of kidnapped Malaysian pastor Raymond Koh,

and North Korean defector students from our UU/UT schools.

Sign our petition to help discover "Where is Raymond Koh?"

On February 13, 2017, Kim Jong Nam, the half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, was murdered in the Kuala Lumpur airport. Within five days, Malaysian police were able to identify and apprehend the culprits. They credited CCTV footage for the quick capture.

Also on February 13, 2017 in Malaysia, a car driven by Pastor Raymond Koh was surrounded by at least 15 masked men driving black 4x4 vehicles, and Pastor Koh was kidnapped. The kidnapping happened on public streets, and CCTV footage from both sides of the street recorded the event.

Almost three years later, Malaysian authorities still claim they have no information about the suspicious disappearance of Malaysian Pastor Raymond Koh.

That is why Voice of the Martyrs Korea is encouraging Korean Christians and Christians around the world to support his family by signing our petition to pressure the Malaysian government to uncover the truth...

The Chinese government is legally preventing children in China
from attending religious services. Be a part of the movement to 
provide a "Sunday School in a Box" to Chinese children so that their
parents might have the materials necessary to disciple them in the home!

What happened at your baptism?
No, I mean what really happened?
Did you feel something special?
Did you see a vision?
Did you notice a change in your behavior afterwards?

If your answer to these questions is “no”, have I got good news for you!

Pastor Tim's Prayer Points
  • Many NK/Chinese marriages end with the NK woman escaping China and heading for South Korea. Please pray for the Chinese husbands and the children who are left behind. Many of these men blame SK missionaries for stealing their wives and they become anti-Christian because they wrongly perceive that the church has taken their wives from them. Those children who are left behind also grow up to hate Christianity. Also, pray for our partners who are still actively working to bring Christ to the whole household . . . husband, wife and children.

  • Official research has shown that 17% of North Koreans listen to illegal short-wave radio while inside of North Korea. We recently found out that 23% of our NK discipleship students also listened to illegal short-wave radio when they lived in NK. Our students listened to a variety of programs including Christian programming. In fact, one of the hosts of our own NK radio show first heard about Jesus by listening to illegal Christian radio inside of North Korea with her father. Short-wave radio continues to be an effective way to not only share the gospel, but also to disciple Christians inside of North Korea. Please pray for the successful transmission of our daily short-wave radio program and our 24/7 satellite radio broadcast.
