Note: Kim Jong Un, the leader of North Korea, will celebrate his 32nd birthday on January 8, 2015. Pray that he will open his heart to the love of Jesus and will no longer persecute Christians.

It is very difficult for North Koreans to learn about Jesus. North Koreans are not allowed to own Bibles. Very few people are permitted to have the Internet, so they can’t learn about Jesus from people in other countries. TVs in North Korea show only programs approved by the government.

The Voice of the Martyrs sponsors Scripture balloon launches to send Scriptures to North Korea by balloons. Christians try to find other ways to get the truth to North Korea.

Some North Koreans have left their country to find a better life in other places. Sometimes they find out about Jesus in their new lands. Brave North Korean Christians return to North Korea at great risk to tell their family and friends what they have learned.

The video clip below shows two men watching a Christian message that was smuggled into the country on a thumb drive. One of the men holds a New Testament from a VOM-sponsored ministry pack.

Note the pictures of two men on the wall. North Koreans are required to display pictures of their leaders in their homes. They are expected to look to their leaders for all their needs. The courageous Christian who took the video wanted to show that God’s Word also truly exists inside North Korea.

Pray for North Koreans.

Workers from The Voice of the Martyrs visited northern Iraq to encourage Christians there. They talked to believers who have been driven from their homes by fighters who belong to a radical Muslim group called Islamic State (IS).

Watch the video clip in this post to learn about the first day of the VOM workers’ visit. As you watch, look for answers to the following questions.

  • What kind of building are the Christians living in?
  • What do they use sheets for?
  • What do all the families have to share?
  • How long will they have to stay in the building?
  • What can we pray for the families?

To Think About
The Iraqis said they never had silence in the building. Think of a large room in your church or school. If they room were divided into 26 spaces and your family had to live in one of the spaces, what else would you lack besides silence?

Many Iraqi Christians have been driven from their homes by extremist Muslims who want to take over their country. The Voice of the Martyrs delivers aid to the Christians, who often were forced to leave home with nothing. The aid includes children’s Bibles.

Watch the video clip to see an Iraqi boy reading the story of David and Jonathan from the Arabic Action Bible.

Syria is experiencing a civil war. Many people have left the country to live in refugee camps in nearby countries.

Most Syrians are Muslims. The struggle in Syria is leading some to seek the truth outside of Islam. (Islam is the religion of Muslims.)

A Christian who ministers among Syrians shares the good news of Jesus using an interesting wristband. Watch the clip to hear him explaining the symbols on the wristband in Arabic, the main language of Syria.

Note: The down arrow represents Jesus coming to earth. The cross is a symbol of His crucifixion, and the grave shows that He died for our sins. The up arrow illustrates Jesus’ resurrection. The second down arrow shows that one day Jesus will come back.

The Christian shares his wristband with everyone he sees. Can you make a similar wristband and explain the symbols on it to friends?
