Korea – Bible Launches Met With Resistance

Voice of the Martyrs Korea (“VOMK”) has been sending Bibles and items like rice and vitamins to North Korea, by using large balloons that would strategically drop the materials across the border, and in bottles systematically placed along the western coast, according to the timing of the tide, to float to their intended destination.

However, in June this year, when VOMK workers set out to launch the latest 500 rice bottles, they were stopped by two dozen people and prevented from getting to the sea. They were later told to cease and desist from any rice bottle launches.

Despite the opposition, Pastor Eric Foley, CEO of VOMK, remains positive as he recognises that divinely appointed opportunities are being presented in every challenge that arises. He recalls that all previous attempts to obstruct their past humanitarian efforts have made it possible for the members of his mission team to demonstrate the love and grace of God.

Please pray that the heart of those opposing VOMK’s work will be open to receive the gospel message and eventually find salvation and hope in the Lord.

Pray that God will continue the good work He already begun in the lives of the many North Koreans who have received previously launched Bibles.

Pray that the Lord will open other avenues with more creative and effective ways to bring the gospel message across the border into North Korea with more far-reaching effects.
