The Problem

100,000 million Christians face persecution simply for following Jesus 
The Problem

Jong-Cheol’s story

Jong-Cheol was 11 when he escaped from North Korea into China. He was a ‘kotjebi’ – a North Korean word meaning ‘wandering swallow’ – slang for street children.

Jong-Cheol became a Christian in China. Unfortunately he was caught by the police and sent back to North Korea, where he was interrogated and beaten. He didn’t survive.

In North Korea there are up to 400,000 secret Christians, 70,000 of whom could be imprisoned in a labour camp simply for following Jesus.

Pray for

  • For the 50,000-70,000 Christians imprisoned in labour camps. Ask God to sustain them.
  • That God would change the heart of leader Kim Jong-Un and use him to reform the country.
  • For protection for co-workers and contacts providing relief and shelter for Christians refugees in China.

Where is North Korea?

We support people who are beaten, tortured,
imprisoned, falsely accused, and hated simply for following Jesus.
