For 20 years, Mrs. L lived in China, where she had been trafficked and sold to a Chinese man to be his wife. But during that time, she found true freedom and a purpose.
When a North Korean friend there shared the gospel with her in 2015, Mrs. L decided to visit her church and learn more about Jesus. But after attending a few services, she found it difficult to connect with church members and stopped attending. North Koreans often feel isolated in China. They avoid contact with Chinese people because they are there illegally.
Then, one day she happened to meet a VOM worker. “I was invited to his church,” she recalled. “Over time, as I saw his honesty and service to other North Korean ladies, I started understanding what it means to live as a Christian.”
The VOM worker visited Mrs. L regularly and helped her with Bible study, eventually leading her to faith in Christ. “Christ came to my heart through the life of the VOM worker,” she said. “My heart filled up with joy as I came to know the Lord after 20 years of my life in China all by myself. Now, God and his people are with me.”
