AGE | 19
LOCATION | Southeast Asia
STATUS | Awaiting Resettlement
Myung Soo spent the first 19 years of his life in North Korea. When he was old enough to work, the government immediately stationed him in a coal mine where he would work upwards of 10 hours a day and not receive pay.
He escaped North Korea three times to find food and medicine for his family. His sister had heart disease and was unable to be treated in North Korea.
Around the time he turned 18, he had a dream about “Christianity” and didn’t know exactly what it meant. He asked neighbors in his village and was warned to never talk about “such things” again as he would be harshly sentenced to a prison camp.
Myung Soo desired the freedom to choose for himself and his own personal beliefs. Although it was a difficult decision, he decided to make his final escape so that he could freely practice his faith. We met Myung Soo and provided an opportunity for him to escape China.
He is currently safe in our Southeast Asia shelter waiting to be processed for resettlement.
THANK YOU FOR CHANGING MYUNG SOO’S LIFE AND PROVIDING THE OPPORTUNITY FOR HIM TO ENJOY THIS NEW LIBERTY.
