ICC’s free monthly magazine brings you prayer needs, stories, feature articles, and analysis to help you understand persecution and connect with brothers and sisters around the world who suffer for their faith.
For many years, North Korea has been labeled as the worst country in the world to be a Christian. Prison camps, torture, forced abortions, and other atrocities continue to plague the nation’s Christians and anyone else who dares to speak out against the Kim regime.
Yet, in a recent interview with Suzanne Scholte, she explained that hope remains. One defector who used to work as a highly ranked leader in the North Korean regime explained that the Gospel had the power to break the stranglehold of control in North Korea.
Therefore, we are actively working to send the Gospel in through daily Christian radio broadcasts. Day after day, we are receiving reports of hope from those being touched by the Gospel for the first time.

Sad revelation of Gods people going through such persecution. Oh God intervene n have mercy. In our prayers.
Heartbreaking levels of cruelty and inhumanity. Similar things are happening in China also. Thank you for drawing attention to the plight of Christians in N. Korea.
Praying for North Korea that all the strongholds of enemy there be broken down and removed in the Mighty name of Jesus. May God bless the people who are suffering for their faith in Christ. Amen
Praying for North Korea!
So sad, may God Bless them!!
…PLEASE TURN OFF THAT REALLY ANNOYING BACKGROUND MUSIC! It adds nothing to the story – just makes you feel like someone is trying to manipulate your emotions – it is absolutely NOT needed!
Why can't I see comments?
Last year, ICC launched the Rescue: Wives and Kids fund to rescue the families of believers who are killed, imprisoned, or sidelined due to persecution. Through this fund, we aid bereaved families who have lost their breadwinner, terror attack survivors, and women in danger.
What happens to a family when the husband and father is killed or imprisoned for loving Jesus? They are left destitute. The children often have to drop out of school and start working, even as young as eight years old. Elizabeth lost her eldest son, Charo Karisa, when al-Shabaab executed him and three others on August 17, 2017. What made the attack even more devastating was that he was also her provider. Elizabeth, who was in her seventies, was too old to take care of the family of seven.
ICC originally helped Elizabeth by providing her with 10 goats. A year later, she told us, "Today I have 16 goats and a modern shelter where they sleep. I have enough milk for our morning tea, for my grandchildren, and I sell the extra liters to the neighbors." The simple gift of 10 goats from ICC gave Elizabeth and her family a future.
