North Korea is the main nation for Christian persecution in the world. Christians in the nation confront extreme persecution and are forbidden from practicing their faith.
Christians from neighboring South Korea are involved with special mission to get Scripture into the hands of North Korean Christians, and that mission includes specially-designed balloons.
The balloons are loaded with pages of Scripture and can fit the whole book of Mark. The South Koreans at that point drive to the outskirt of North and South Korea- – the peaceful area, fill the balloons with helium, and dispatch the balloons, which, if the climate is correct, will drift down into A north Korean area.
The activity is known as Operation Dandelion, “We started this project back in 1991, and just as a dandelion needs the wind to spread its seeds, we need the wind to spread the message,” explained a South Korean Christian identified as Peter who is involved in the project.
“It’s almost impossible to get Bibles into North Korea, so using balloons is one of the most effective ways to share the gospel,” Peter continued.
“By sending these balloons, we let our North Korean brothers and sisters know that we are praying for them and the scriptures on the balloons are meant to encourage them,” another believer added.
Join us in praying for our North Korean brothers and sisters and for the South Korean Christians who are risking their lives to provide them with Scripture.
