North Korea: “I Simply Trusted the Lord”
28 MIN

The last two weeks on VOM Radio we’ve heard from John Short, the Australian Christian detained in North Korea in 2014 after leaving gospel tracts outside a Buddhist temple. This week we hear another side of the story, from John’s wife, Karen, who was at home in Hong Kong dealing with the media, praying for her husband and receiving encouragement from all over the world.

Listen in as Karen shares:

  • How God ministered to her during John’s detention
  • How she and John stayed connected through Scripture—even though they couldn’t communicate at all during his detention
  • How journalists and others responded to Karen’s calm assurance and faith in God
  • How she found out her husband would be coming home
  • The one thing she wishes she’d done differently—it will surprise you!

The story of Karen’s faithfulness will inspire you to trust more deeply in God and dive deeper into His Word, even if you’re not planning a trip to North Korea.

If you missed our conversation with John, you can listen here: Part 1 and Part 2.
