Balloon Launches are now Officially Banned

Please pray for Korea and Voice of the Martyrs Korea (“VOMK”).

VOMK has been sending Bibles into North Korea through the use of balloon launches. Since 2005, approximately 600,000 Bibles have been sent into the North. However, the South Korean government recently passed a law making it illegal to send any “anti-North Korean” materials across the border through the use of balloon launches.

While VOMK is the only major organisation supplying religious materials across the border, other organisations are sending politically motivated or culturally based materials. This law, which takes effect in March 2021, punishes violators with a fine or imprisonment of up to 3 years.

Please pray that God will impart greatly needed wisdom and direction to the leadership of VOMK in the coming months, as they navigate how best to reach North Koreans who are desperately in need of hope and help. Pray God will give them new and creative ways to continue their ministry.

Pray that this law will be rescinded or modified to allow VOMK to continue sending God’s Word to those in need. Pray that God will bless their efforts and cause their ministry to flourish in spite of the restrictions.
