North Korean Christian Under Death Penalty

A North Korean visiting his Chinese brother was arrested, tortured and imprisoned and is now facing public execution.

Son Jong Nam, 48, was visiting his brother in China and appears to have discussed details of his life in North Korea and possibly his faith. He also received financial assistance from his brother, and for this, he faces execution as a spy.

His family and many North Korean activist organizations are asking the international community to put pressure on North Korea to release Mr. Son. He has undergone torture, and his family is not permitted to see him. They have been expelled from Pyongyang, where he is being held.

Please pray for Mr. Son and his family and write your leaders to put pressure on North Korea.
