An Invitation

We (Ross and I) would like to extend the invitation to pray through Ramadan, both for the progress of the gospel in the Muslim world, and for the persecuted Christian Church.

Country Profile: North Korea (From Open Doors)

Leader: Kim Jong-il 
Population: 20 million (400,000 Christians)
Main Religion: Atheism/traditional beliefs 
Government: Communist dictatorship 
World Watch Rank: 01
Nowhere in the world is Christian persecution so fierce. Christians have to hide their faith; Christian parents can't even share their beliefs with their children until they are old enough to understand the dangers. Owning a Bible could get you killed, or sent to a harsh labour camp. In 2010 hundreds of Christians were arrested. Some were murdered, others sentenced to labour camps. Despite the risks, the church is growing: there are an estimated 400,000 believers.
Please Pray:
  • For endurance for the 50,000 and 70,000 Christians in labour camps
  • For parents who want to teach their children about Jesus
  • In 2010 Kim Jong-Un was elevated to second in command. Pray that the situation will change for Christians when he becomes the new leader.
