One day, when I was in a prison in China before being sent back to North Korea, I knew the Lord’s Day (Sunday) was coming. I wanted to worship God, so I prayed for a miracle that other Christians and I could worship on the Lord’s Day. But the soldiers were keeping their eyes on us 24 hours a day.
The morning of the Lord’s Day, soldiers came to my room and called out some names. We all knew that they do not send prisoners back to North Korea on Sundays. There were about 50 people in the room, but when the calling was done, only four women including me were left. The other three were the ones who I evangelised in the prison secretly.
Hallelujah! My Lord heard my prayer and showed His miracle to us. Avoiding the soldiers’ eyes, we worshipped the Lord in Spirit and truth. Even though much time has passed since then, I cannot forget the joy of that day.
Though we were afraid of what would happen in North Korea, we could sing and get comfort and power from the Lord and give thanks to the Lord who was with us in this difficult time.
