Recently, Pastor Han, pastor of a church in Chiangbai, China was brutally murdered by North Korean secret agents, sources revealed that he was hacked to death. The purpose behind the murder was to provide a “warning” to Christians in China, who actively assisted North Korean refugees.

In addition to this warning, the Chinese government has warned Chinese and Koreans pastors to refrain from involving themselves. This warning has affected American pastors in the area, as well. “Special prayer is needed for the safety and protection of local, Chinese Korean workers”, says an Open Doors spokesman. “Our ministry in North Korea is also being threatened by these developments. However, we believe Jesus’ promise that the power of the enemy will not overcome the church of Christ. We should be wise and courageous to deal with NK ministries in these difficult circumstances.”

While coming in the latter half of our World Watch List, at number 33, China faces great persecution. However, God is bigger than any trial we face!

Pastor Han’s church and family has been devastated by the recent events. Yet, even in the midst of their great sorrow, they relentlessly gather day and night to pray and fast. Keep them in your prayers, that they are able to peacefully mourn Pastor Han’s death. Pray that God will provide a new pastor for the church. Pray for protection of other Christians on the Chinese-Korean border and surrounding areas. Lastly, pray for the Christians of North Korean; pray they will experience the power of God in their daily lives.
