Last Christmas, we distributed a total of 561 packs to North Koreans in many different countries, including the children of North Korean defectors in South Korea. But some of our Christmas Care packs went directly inside of North Korea.
We were able to receive several short notes of thanks from those who distributed and received packs inside of North Korea that give us a glimpse of what Christmas is like in North Korea.
We distributed gifts to children in three places. They heard that it is a Christmas gift, but people here never know what this holiday(Christmas) means. And we can’t even tell them. We just pray to God in our hearts.
We kept getting too nervous in Joseon. Because even if we hand out gifts, we are suspected, and if we take pictures, we are treated like spies. Especially in the border areas. We thank you for giving us valuable gifts even in difficulties.
I received a gift in Joseon. The person who delivered to us is my best friend. Thank you for sending us such a precious gift, especially since the situations is very difficult and there was nothing to feed the children. My friend whispered to me, “The present came all the way from abroad to celebrate the birth of Jesus’. I don’t know much about it yet, but I am very curious.
