Smuggling the Bible Across the Border
Pastor and Dr. Foley view the grave of Missionary John Ross in Newington Cemetery in Edinburgh.

VOMK smuggles Bibles into North Korea by land, sea and air. Last year we sent over 40,000 print/audio Bibles to North Korea!
We aren’t the first to do this and we certainly aren’t the last. In the late 1800s, Missionary John Ross organized not only the first translation of the Bible into Korean, but also the first illegal Korean Bible smuggling ring.
For over 100 years, the Bible has been breaking the chains that have bound people on the Korean peninsula . . . and it is still doing so today!

Warmly in Christ,
Pastor & Dr. Foley

The Eritrean government arrested 30 Christians that were attending a wedding ceremony held in the capital, Asmara, during the last week of June 2020. That brings the number of Christians arrested in Eritrea since last April to 45.

Two years ago we completed the audio recording of the NK New Testament. Now, we are less than 2 months away from completing the Old Testament! This audio Bible is distributed to North Koreans inside of NK!

Pray for the current situation related to balloon launching: As we write this prayer request, Pastor Foley has not yet been arrested and our offices have not been raided. But it remains a possibility that we are aware of and prepared for. Daily prayers for Pastor and Dr. Foley are needed as well as for our whole staff. Pray that we would be faithful to continue to do what God has called us to do.  
Pray for the Old Testament audio recording: Each North Korean that reads and records one of the OT books is impacted greatly. Please pray for each of our readers that the Word of God would transform their lives. And pray that the whole project would be able to remain on schedule so that we could have the entire Bible (both OT and NT) finished by early October.
