Faith in Action – Son Jong Nam, aged 50 RIP

Filed under: Ministry, World etc. — Christ Ranger @ 5:17 pm

A loyal servant to the North Korean government, until NK police beat his wife and forced abortion in her 8th month of pregnancy because she had the audacity to complain about the policies of Kim Jong-il.  They fled to China.  She died shortly thereafter of cancer.  Through the loving witness of a missionary, Son Jong Nam put his faith in Christ.

Instead of rejecting God and the land of his birth and his countrymen, he embraced Christ and devoted his life to giving words of hope to his suppressed countrymen.  Returning to North Korea to preach the good news of Jesus Christ, Son Jong Nam was repeatedly imprisoned and abused.  Now reported tortured to death by the communist regime of Kim Jong-il.  Full story here

Martyred  at age 50 for spreading the gospel.  He enters his reward.
