In Iran, it is against the law to share the Good News of Jesus with Muslims. But Iranians are secretly becoming Christians anyway! Many of the new Christians meet together secretly in house churches.
At one secret house church, the members learned how to talk about Jesus with Muslims and how to start new churches. They sang, prayed, and studied the Bible and other Christian books. The books were smuggled into Iran from other countries.
But there was something unusual about this church. Most of the members were between the ages of 10 and 13. Some were as young as 5. The leader of the church was 16.

“Chosongul” is the name of the Korean alphabet. It has 24 letters. Chosongul is a phonetic system of writing. Its symbols stand for sounds. To form words or syllables, letters are clustered together in groups.
For example, the Korean word for “school” is “hakkyo.” It is pronounced “HAHK-gyoh.”
Here is how the letters in “hakkyo” are written in Korean and how the entire word is written. Can you find the individual letters in the symbol for “hakkyo?”
Here is how to say two more things in Korean.

Choi had a new book! A friend had given it to her as a gift. The friend was grateful because Choi’s husband helped him stay out of jail.
Choi’s husband was a government official. Sometimes he helped people stay out of trouble. Many people in North Korea need help, especially with the government. That’s because the government of North Korea has lots of strict rules that are hard to follow. Many people get arrested and punished for breaking those rules.
Choi’s husband helped her friend avoid punishment. So the friend gave Choi and her husband the book and said, “This is the story of someone from heaven who helps poor people.”
