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.

Pray for Cuban Christians

While many churches around the world have moved their services online because of the coronavirus pandemic, Cubans do not have this option because most of a lack of internet access. Since the lockdown, Cuban Christians have been completely without worship and fellowship.

There is reportedly an increase in violence, theft and anxiety in the community due to the food shortage. Cubans must wait in long lines for food, many are jobless and public transportation remains suspended.

Pray for divine physical and spiritual provision for our Cuban brothers and sisters.

Pray that as they remain in isolation in their own homes or rooms, they will each have a personal encounter with the Lord that will strengthen and encourage them and fill them with peace.

Pray that they will not be anxious but will have a quiet confidence that God is sovereign and in control of the situation, and God will not forget or forsake them.

3-yr old Girl Dies From Machete Cuts To The Head In Early Morning Attack

CSW reported that 10 people, including 3-yr old Elizabeth Samaila, were killed in an early morning attack in the Tudun Agwalla community in Kajuru, Kaduna state, which is a Christian community in the North West of Nigeria. All 10 were hacked to death by extremists wielding machetes.

Attacks against Christians did not stop despite the lockdown on March 25th due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In fact, a total of about 620 Christians have been killed by extremists in the first 5 months of this year according to a CBN News report.

Please pray for our brethren in Nigeria who are living in uncertainty and constant fear of unprovoked attacks.

Pray that they will draw strength from the Lord and be empowered through intimacy with God (Eph 6:10), and even though they walk through the valley of the shadow of death, they will fear no evil because they know God is with them and His rod and staff will comfort and console (Ps 23:4) (AMP).

Pray that the gospel message will continue to spread and touch many lives in Nigeria. Pray that the truths of the gospel will set people free to love and accept others just as Jesus loved and accepted us.

Nigeria – Nine Killed including 4 children

On 14th April this year, militants killed 9 people, including 4 children, in a predominantly Christian village of Hura, in Plateau state.

Survivors said the militants surrounded the village at about 7pm, firing weapons and shouting. Twenty-one homes were burnt to the ground and seven others damaged.

After burying the dead the next day, survivors had to walk 10 miles to a neighbouring village for fear of further attacks.

Pray for protection for survivors and neighbouring villages from further attacks. Pray that those who lost family members and friends will find comfort in the Lord.

Pray for divine providence for those who lost their house, belongings and food supplies.
