PYONGYANG (Worthy News)-- A Protestant pastor has been missing in North Korea for more than a month, according to Asia News.

In January, Pastor Lim Hyeon-soo arrived in the DPRK for a humanitarian visit; he was scheduled to return Feb. 4, but nothing has been heard from him since.

Hyeon-soo has made more than 100 trips to the "hermit kingdom" to minister to orphans and the elderly. But as a Canadian citizen, his nation has no embassy in North Korea to officially inquire into his whereabouts.

Canada has advised its citizens not to visit the DPRK, the most oppressive nation in the world.
