We serve Christians around the world whose brave faith in Jesus means they are, beaten, threatened, imprisoned, tortured, falsely accused, disowned and hated.

See. Change. Rebecca’s work helping North Korean women

pattern

North Korea is the place where Christians face the most extreme persecution. Having your faith discovered is a death sentence. But even believers who manage to flee the country aren’t safe from persecution – and women are particularly vulnerable. They risk being exploited by human traffickers, and are often sold as brides to Chinese men and abused.

For years, Rebecca (name changed) was a fieldworker, supporting North Korean women at the Chinese border: “I worshipped God with them, studied the Word with them and provided them with what they needed.

“As the sisters do not have legal identification papers, they remain illegal immigrants,” says Rebecca. “Just meeting them is quite dangerous for me. I needed to avoid all possible risks that might put the ministry in danger, such as surveillance, and still meet the sisters. That was the most difficult part.”

For many Christian women and girls, escaping one form of persecution risks facing another. In many parts of the world, our sisters are persecuted for their faith and vulnerable because of their gender.

Pray this:

Dear Father God, thank You see all persecuted Christian women and know their true identity - even when their persecution is hidden from the world. Please protect Your daughters in North Korea and enable them to escape abuse and control. Bless courageous fieldworkers like Rebecca, equipping them with wisdom and opportunity to show Christ's love in the world.
