Timothy* grew up as an orphan in North Korea at the time of the 1990s famine. As a teenager, he decided to cross the Tumen River into China in a bid for survival. This is how coming across a safe house, run by Open Doors partners in China, set him on the path to finding Jesus…
Watch his video to understand how the North Korean government is portraying Christianity as a cursed belief and how Timothy managed to escape, despite imprisonment and torture. North Korea is No.2 on the 2022 World Watch List of most dangerous places to live as a Christian.
We want to help you pray to bring light into the darkness, so we’ve created an awesome new map with stories, actions and prayer points. It also glows in the dark and comes with a glow-in-the-dark tattoo which will help to remind you to keep praying for God’s light to shine in the darkest places. We’ve also got a youth session outline for leaders to use alongside the map too.

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