The testimony of a North Korean Refugee
When The Bible Means Survival
From starting a secret church in a North Korean prison camp, to surviving the freezing rivers of the border crossing, Hea Woo’s most prized possession is the word of God.
Clutching her own handwritten Bible, Hea Woo repeated the promises of God daily.
“The Psalm taught me that Jesus is my Shepherd,” she says. “Always. Despite the terrible place and pain I was in, Jesus was my Shepherd… One day, I would sit at His table while my enemies watched. Now, He was leading me through a valley of death. It didn’t matter if I survived or not. God was with me. One day, I’d be free. Whether through release or through death.’
