Launching Balloons into North Korea

"My country is madness," says a North Korean who escaped to China. "The food we get is worse than that of pigs. We are without clothing, medicine and treatment for the sick. Living in North Korea is like living in hell. Thank God and thank you all who serve the Lord. His people are supplying our material and other needs with God's love, and I am thankful for that. We will learn the Word of God and grow in faith, and promise we will do the work of the Lord until the last day of our lives."

VOM distributes thousands of Scripture leaflets in North Korea, bringing the Word of God to people who are forbidden to study it.

North Korean Christians do study it, and they share the gospel with one another despite the ever present risk of a death penalty. Many large balloons are launched into North Korea, each with Scripture leaflets in large bags, which open over North Korea and drop the leaflets to earth. The gospel is reaching North Koreans and continues to bring them hope!
