North Korean defector shares his testimony

kim Kim Sung Min was born in Hee-Chun City in North Korea in 1962. He served in the North Korean military for ten years, commissioned as a second lieutenant in the Art Propaganda Division and finally promoted to the rank of captain. One of his poems about the greatness of Kim Il Sung became required memorization by all North Korean soldiers. Gradually disillusioned by the deteriorating conditions in North Korea and his growing awareness of the outside world, Mr. Kim eventually escaped to China but was captured and brutally returned to the communist state. After a miraculous second escape, he lived in seclusion in China for two years and came to know the Lord Jesus Christ.

Last weekend, Mr. Kim shared his testimony at both The Voice of the Martyrs' conference here in Mississauga on Saturday and at my home church, City Centre Baptist Church on Sunday morning.  Unfortunately, my health did not permit me to attend these meetings, but I was delighted to learn that City Centre recorded Mr. Kim's message and posted it on their website.  I think you will enjoy listening to this powerful testimony and how VOMC is helping to equip North Koreans to reach their own people with the gospel of Jesus Christ through the Underground University.

Mr. Kim will also be speaking at the VOMC conference this coming weekend at:

Northgate Baptist Church
13208 - 95th Street NW
Edmonton, Alberta

Time: 9:15 AM - 3:45 PM (click here for more details).

If you can, please make plans to attend this conference. You certainly won't regret it!

I would also like to take this opportunity to publicly thank Pastor Deric Bartlett and City Centre Baptist Church for their fantastic work in hosting our conference this past weekend. What a great church to be partners with!
