Convicted Murderer Growing in Faith

[168] prayers in [10] nations have been posted for Mr. K.

Mr. K, a student in a discipleship program for North Korean defectors, is currently serving time in prison for a murder he committed in South Korea. Mr. K had thought that he could never be forgiven for what he had done, but he was deeply encouraged when Christian friends told him the Lord had forgiven his sin and that he could still be used by the Lord. He began studying the Bible and reading inspiring books like Tortured for Christ in prison. Pray that Mr. K will continue to grow in his faith through this discipleship program and that he will be a bold witness to his fellow inmates, bringing the light of Christ to a dark place.
