Chinese Citizen Remains in North Korean Prison

[261] prayers in [13] nations have been posted for Deacon Jang.

Zhang Wen Shi, also known as Deacon Jang, is an ethnically Korean Christian who lived and ministered in Changbai, China, a town located on China’s border with North Korea. When North Koreans illegally visited Changbai to conduct business, purchase items they could sell on the black market, or seek medicine or other help, Deacon Jang often provided them with warm clothing, food and supplies for their return to North Korea. He also shared the gospel with those willing to listen. In November 2014, Deacon Jang was abducted in China, taken to North Korea and sentenced to 15 years in prison. Since his imprisonment, several former prisoners have reported seeing or hearing about him. Please pray for his release.
