Since the early part of this year, the Chinese government has deported many South Korean pastors and missionaries. No reason has been given for this action, but the areas from which these pastors and missionaries have been deported all border North Korea. It is believed that North Korean officials think that they were helping North Korean defectors. “There are thought to be over 1,000 South Korean pastors and missionaries in China, most working in the northeast, and their departure has led to closed churches and abandoned communities.”
- Pray for those wishing to leave the oppressive country of North Korea.
- Pray for those who are trying to aid in the suffering of North Koreans.
- Pray for China as the government seeks tight control over religious activities.
