Please pray for the persecuted: Pastor Han, his wife and family lived in China, near the North Korean border. North Koreans became Christians through Pastor Han’s teaching. He also encouraged them to teach other North Koreans about Jesus. It is against the law to evangelize in NK and as a result Pastor Han became a target and was brutally murdered. Pray for God to comfort those who loved Pastor Han. Give thanks for our freedom to worship openly and rejoice in it by loving God with all your heart.
