Martyr Monday: Hope the Cell-Evangelist

BecomingEllipsisMark

The following pictures are scanned pages from the Voice of the Martyrs monthly magazine. Each month they feature real-life stories of today’s martyrs around the world. The newsletter is free to receive. I encourage you to subscribe.

This month’s featured an 80-year-old North Korean woman who came to Christ very late in life…after six suicide attempts. Now, she’s not only a believer but an evangelist with a uniquely modern way of sharing her faith and the Gospel. Please read her story and pray for Hope and the other defectors.

Also, please visit the VOM website and join their Be-A-Voice Network to learn more in depth about those being persecuted for their faith and how you can help them through prayer, written encouragement, and financial support.
