Pray for Hoon, Learning About Jesus in China

[235] prayers in [19] nations have been posted for Hoon.

“Hoon,” a North Korean working in China, has been learning about Jesus from a Chinese missionary for several months, but they may no longer be able to meet. Missionary “Lee” gave Hoon an MP3 player to help him study Scripture, and Lee could tell that Hoon was open to the gospel. Recently, however, China has tightened its control over those working with North Koreans, and one of Lee’s friends who is a pastor was recently interrogated by Chinese police. In addition, China has considered canceling North Korean work visas because of the country’s ongoing nuclear testing. Many North Koreans in China are uncertain whether they will be allowed to stay in the country. Pray that Lee and Hoon will be able to continue meeting and that God will prepare Hoon’s heart to receive Him through the hearing of His Word.

  • God, I want to pray for Hoon and Lee that they be able to continue meeting, but for all those receptive to the Gospel to be given access to the Gospel. You make ways where there seems to be no access. I am constantly amazed by the results You achieve in the most dire of circumstances. You are an awesome, awesome God!

  • Lord, hear our prayer! Send peace and safety to Hoon, to Missionary Lee, to all around them. Blind the eyes of those who would take the mp3, close the ears of those who would reveal the mp3 to enemies of the cross, and stop the arms and legs of those who would be swift to do evil deeds. Send friends for the journey. Send your peace, Lord!
