North Korea: Faith or Fear?

March 18, 2016
Australian John Short was detained inside North Korea after leaving gospel tracts near a Buddhist temple. He was facing years in prison--but he wasn't afraid. "Fear and faith cannot exist within my heart at the same time," he says. In the second part of our conversation with Mr. Short, he shares how he prayed--out loud--throughout his captivity, how his captors responded to his faith and how his "letter of confession" and eventual release came about. He'll also share how, upon landing back in China, he learned that his captivity was international news. He was deeply moved to learn that Christians in many nations were praying for him during his trial, including a group of Chinese house churches that prayed around the clock during his detention. Finally, Mr. Short shares specific ways we can pray for the "hermit kingdom" of North Korea. (If you missed the first part of this conversation, listen to it here.)
