The Hermit Kingdom is a repressive nightmare, where the populace are kept ignorant of the outside world and forcibly indoctrinated into the bizarre doctrines and policies of the Dear Leader. He has made 70 bronze statues (total value over $1 billion) and literally tens of thousands of other monuments, towers and figures of his father Kim Il-Sung, the Father in the twisted Cheondogyo trinity of Father, Son and Juche spirit. The nuclear threat of this rogue nation is only surpassed by the nations great suffering and deprivation. Pray for the leader and his cadre, that the Holy Spirit might bring them to repentance and belief.
North Koreas economy and environment are in states of disaster, the former propped up only by illicit money-spinner ventures outside the country and by Chinese and South Korean generosity, which ebbs and flows with ever-shifting North Korean politics. Yet the cost of continually propping up North Korea will eventually tally up to more than the cost of rebuilding a crumbling nation after a regime change. Pray for a watershed moment in Gods timing that will bring thorough change, freedom and complete transformation to this land.
