Greetings Friends! David here to give you an update on my next novel, Sea Scribe, and share a little of the back-story. Sea Scribe is in the second phase of editing so we’re just a few short weeks away from publishing day!
Like me, most of you followed the Boston tragedy closely. That news dwarfed the daily updates on North Korea that we were all previously following. Just rhetoric from an evil regime? Well, whatever the regime is up to, the situation inside NK is grave for many of God’s people.
North Korea is a country I like to write about. Why? I want to bring attention to the Persecuted Church there because NK continues to be rated by watchdog organizations as the worst perpetrator of persecution against Christians in the world.
Contacts continue to report horrendous conditions for individuals and families alike—even children are sentenced to death to work in gulags beside their Christian parents. But these believers refuse to deny their Lord even in the face of torture.
In Sea Scribe, we closely follow Ho Kichun, a networker in the Christian underground inside North Korea. He is cut off from the outside world, yet he hopes for a covert contact—if Kichun isn’t killed by an assassin first!
Though the characters in Sea Scribe are fictitious, the conditions and attitudes inside NK are as desperate as ever for believers who name the Name of Christ. Continue in prayer for them, that they might remain steadfast in faith. What rejoicing we will have before the Throne in eternity when we are able to meet our brothers and sisters from North Korea!
See you on your knees!
COMING UP: WEDNESDAY, David has Part 6 in his If Christianity were Illegal Series, titled “Unpopular but Prepared when Christianity is Illegal.”
