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)
Your North Korean sisters in Christ need your help. After being sex-trafficked to impoverished husbands in North-East China, these women are unable to afford basic protection from the Coronavirus in an area with hundreds of confirmed cases.

The Coronavirus shows the world what is in us

The church has always had an interesting history concerning plagues and viruses.

It is not a history of self-preservation.

As I wrote in my book, The Whole Life Offering:

Hospitals owe their origin to the plethora of plagues and epidemics that struck the ancient world with alarming regularity and force. Observes author Rob Moll, “When an epidemic struck in the ancient world, pagan city officials offered gifts to the gods but nothing for their suffering citizens. Even in healthy times, those who had no one to care for them, or whose care placed too great a burden on the family, were left out to die.”

The early church responded not only out of compassion, adds Moll citing Christian medical history professor Gary Ferngren, but out of a worshipful recognition that every cast-out body bore the Imagio Dei —the image of God. The church sought to restore that image to vitality through the practice of the Works of Mercy, first in private homes and then, as the tide of desperation and disease swamped the ancient world, in “hospitals” designed for comprehensive care.

The Chinese government is preventing children in China from attending religious services. Rally your congregation's support 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!

Jesus promises to accept everyone the father sends. But how can we be sure that God really sent us to Jesus? If you listen carefully to the sermon delivered by VOMK pastors Eric and Hyun Sook Foley, you can find the answer to this question.

Pastor Tim's Prayer Points
  • Praise - Early in January our UU students were able to preach the gospel to other NKs in an undisclosed location during our first UU mission trip of 2020!

  • Pray for our upcoming UU China training - Due to the recent outbreak of the Coronavirus, Korea is already placing travel restrictions on people coming from China. This means that we will have to delay our training. This is logistically difficult since we already have teachers, plane flights and lodging set. Please pray for the Lord’s wisdom and for the ability to schedule a new date. Please also pray for those who have already been directly affected by the Coronavirus.

  • Pray for North Koreans who happen upon our shortwave and mediumwave radio broadcasts - Our various broadcasts reach multiple demographics in North Korea. For example, our broadcasts now reach those both in the urban areas and the rural areas. Please pray not only for their safety, but that the truth of God’s word might take root in their hearts; that they might begin to understand the scripture they hear.
