Please Remember our Brethren in N. Korea

The underground Christian body in North Korea has launched a prayer campaign for evangelization in the country in response to the government’s recent missile testing and threat to attack its southern counterpart, South Korea.
Church leaders in the country say the situation is extremely unstable inside and urge North Korean Christians to become more united during this difficult time, according to Open Doors sources.
Not only is the country supposedly restarting its nuclear weapons program and threatening war against its neighbor, but North Korean authorities have reportedly intensified tactics to expose underground church members.
“Christians in North Korea are suffering terribly for their faith,” said Open Doors USA president/CEO Carl Moeller. “Of the estimated 200,000 in political prison camps, an estimated 40,000 to 60,000 are Christians.”
He added, “Now with the firing of several missiles and the on-going war footing, the scrutiny of believers has increased.”
“We thank God there are so many people who are praying for our country,” said a pastor inside North Korea to Open Doors. “Your prayers strengthen the Christians in North Korea.”
