North Korea, where even owning a Bible is a crime, continues to top the list as the worst persecutor of Christians. An estimated 60,000 believers suffer in prisons. On June 16th, 2009, a 33-year-old Christian mother, Ri Hyon Ok, was publicly executed for distributing the Bible and for allegedly being a spy. The next day her husband, three children, and parents were put in prison. The penalty for having a Bible includes the imprisonment of three generations of one’s family. Please intercede on behalf of these suffering believers, asking God for special grace for their testimonies to shine for Christ.
