Balloons take hope into North Korea

North Korea (MNN) — North Korea tops the lists of countries
that persecute Christians. Current estimates suggest that some 200,000 North Koreans
are in prison, many of whom are believed to be Christians.

Voice of the Martyrs Canada notes that religious prisoners
are often subjected to harsher treatment and given the most dangerous tasks,
all in an effort to force them to renounce their faith. When they refuse, they
are often tortured to death. Those caught praying are beaten and tortured.

In a country where people are executed for possessing a
Bible, sharing the hope of Christ requires a creative solution.

The Voice of the Martyrs has been involved in deploying
balloons filled with Gospel tracts and believers' testimonies to North Korea.
Another balloon launch is scheduled in July.

Pray that the literature successfully gets into the hands of
many North Koreans. Pray that the literature will plant seeds of God's truth
and that many more will come to know the Lord.
