Persecution Update July 2011: North Korea

North Korea has the distinction of being the most hostile nation on earth to the Gospel. With its forced worship of Supreme Leader Kim Jong-il, North Korea brutally imprisons, tortures, and poisons Christians of all ages--children, adults, the elderly. Communist doctors even conduct experiments for chemical and biological weapons on the approximately 50,000 incarcerated Christians. Simply owning a Bible has resulted in public executions. Please intercede on behalf of these dear suffering believers, asking God for grace for them and that their testimonies will shine for Christ. Pray also for the Gospel's advance in such darkness--the Word of God is not bound!
