[Media Advisory] World Help President Vernon Brewer to Give Update on State of Christian Persecution in North Korea, Monday, Oct. 9

FOREST, Va. — World Help President and Founder Vernon Brewer will give an update on the state of Christian persecution in North Korea via a conference call tonight, Monday, Oct. 9, at 8 p.m. EST.

Brewer recently returned from visiting the North Korean border. He interviewed defectors who fled the regime, toured the demilitarized zone separating North and South Korea and attended a church service where 200 South Koreans prayed fervently for the reunification of the Korean people.

Brewer will share insights on the state of the church in North Korea, explaining how despite grueling persecution Christianity is still growing under the regime’s totalitarian grip. He’ll tell stories of men and women who’ve risked it all by smuggling Bibles back into North Korea so others might have an opportunity to hear the gospel. And he’ll share how the American church can pray for and help their North Korean brothers and sister.
