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