A History of Christianity in North Korea
Open Doors is focusing on a week of prayer for North Korea, beginning April 24th. I signed up for the daily email and was fascinated by the first one, which covered the history of Christianity in North Korea. I didn’t know, for instance, that Pyongyang was known as the “Jerusalem of the East” with Christians making up 13% of its population in 1945. You can read this first email here.
