Headlining today’s news, The leaders of North and South Korea wrapped up a groundbreaking summit this week that many people hope will ease tensions between the long time foes. Far East Broadcasting Company beams Christian programming into Communist North Korea. FEBC’s President Jim Bowman says this agreement doesn’t mean more openness. “This meeting is about opening up the North for trade. That’s what the north hopes, to improve their economy. So our prayer is that something real will happen here. That, really, there can be a heart change in the leadership in the north that will allow that country to open up and be open to the Gospel.” Bowman says people are listening to their programming despite the fact that North Korea a country closed to the Gospel or any religion. “Religious activity North of the DMZ is virtually non existent. It’s a very scary thing to even be listening to Christian broadcast, much less than trying to share your faith.”
