Freed American pastor says he shared the Gospel with North Korean official before his release

(Worthy News) - Kim Hak Song, an American pastor released last month from North Korea after spending a year in prison, recently spoke about his detention under one of the most brutal regimes on the planet and explained how he was able to share God's Word despite the circumstances.

Kim, who was arrested in 2017 while he was teaching rice growing at a private university in Pyongyang founded by evangelical Christians, shared his experiences after a service at the Oriental Mission Church in East Hollywood, his home congregation.

Religion News Service reports that Kim spoke through a translator to offer his "first extended public comments" since being welcomed back to the United States by President Donald Trump, along with fellow imprisoned Americans Tony Kim and Kim Dong Chul. [ Source: Christian Today (Read More...) ]
