Ten-year-old Hyun Joo was different. Very few North Korean children know about Jesus and God. But Hyun Joo believed in God and trusted Him.
Hyun Joo’s parents were Christians. Many North Korean Christians do not talk about God with their children. If the children mention God outside the home, government officials might punish the whole family. The government wants the citizens to honor the country’s leaders, not God.
But Hyun Joo’s parents wanted her to know Jesus. They prayed that God would use her to change North Korea.

Women and girls in Iran are forced to follow strict dress codes. Leaders in Iran believe that Islam, the religion of Muslims, teaches females to cover their heads and hair. They are also expected to cover their skin from head to toe.
Hijabs (“hih-JAHBZ”) are scarfs or other material worn to cover the hair. Recently, hijabs have shown up in some places where they may not have been expected. Three women from Iran wore hijabs to participate in the 2008 Olympics. And hijabs are appearing on the heads of taxi drivers.
Usually taxi drivers in Iran are men. But some strict Muslims believe that women and men should not ride together in taxis. Also, some Iranian women do not feel safe riding with men drivers. So a few women now drive taxis for women only. But women taxi drivers are still unusual in Iran.
