Persecuted Church Alert

Although by now you have probably already heard about this, I felt it necessary to post the news on the blog. Ri Hyon Ok, 33, was executed by the N. Korean government for distributing Bibles and "spying" for the U.S. and S. Korea. She is at rest with our Lord, but her family has been detained in a prison camp. Please pray for her husband and three small children.

Also, please be in prayer for another Christian woman who was arrested and tortured. Seo Kum Ok, 30, has not been seen or heard from since, and it is unclear if she survived. Her husband was also arrested and their two children have disappeared.

Praise God that there are people bold enough to present the Gospel of Jesus Christ to this dark nation in spite of the persecution they suffer. Pray that His Holy Spirit will pour out His Word upon the people and that they will embrace Him as their Savior.
