Camp Ministers to Young North Korean Defectors

[156] prayers in [8] nations have been posted for Camp Ministry.

For many North Korean defectors who successfully reach South Korea, adjusting to life outside the strict control of the North Korean regime can be difficult and overwhelming. According to one North Korean Christian who is ministering to defectors, such difficulty leads many defectors to succumb to hopelessness and materialism. In May, this brother helped host a camp in central South Korea for the children of North Korean defectors, helping them find meaning and purpose through the good news of Jesus Christ. Pray for the ongoing outreach to this new generation as they learn the value of freedom in Christ.

  • Lord God, I do pray that these children would come to see that only You give hope that cannot be taken away. May their eyes be opened to the true emptiness of all the world has to offer and may they surrender their lives to You, trusting that You know best how to care for Your children. May these workers have great wisdom as they share the gospel.

  • Jesus in you is the only true freedom. As North Korean believers experience physical freedom, would that be a picture of their ultimate freedom in Christ. As they learn what life looks like in a new place, would your presence be made alive to them and cause them to experience peace. Please provide Christian community and fellowship for them. Amen.
