North Korea remains a very secretive and oppressive country. Reports that President Kim Jong-un had officials executed because of the breakdown of his talks in Vietnam with American President Donald Trump have not been verified at the time of writing. But executions certainly do take place in North Korea. Christians can be executed for the “crime” of owning a Bible. Some Christians also die from the harsh conditions in the labour camps where they are sent to serve long sentences. Praise God for the wonderful and enduring faith of North Korean believers and pray that the Church will grow, not shrink, under this extreme persecution.
