For years, front-line workers have been broadcasting the gospel message into North Korea using short-wave radio. Their broadcasts include Bible readings, sermons by early Korean Christians, hymns and common North Korean songs that have been rewritten with Christian lyrics.

Official and unofficial surveys, as well as an increase in jamming efforts by the North Korean government, continue to show that these broadcasts are effectively reaching listeners in North Korea.

A North Korean defector reported that he enjoyed listening to the rewritten songs, and he mentioned one that he especially enjoyed, originally titled ‘Our Party Is the Best’ but changed to ‘Our God Is the Best’.

    Pray for them

    Pray that the seed that was planted in this man through these radio broadcasts will continue to grow now that he is in South Korea.

    Pray also that the jamming of radio broadcasts will decrease.

    Praise God that more North Koreans will hear God’s Word and come to faith in Him through these radio broadcasts.
