For the first five decades of his life, Steven Kim was a businessman who pursued financial prosperity, while largely ignoring both his family and his commitment to God. But after moving to China and rededicating his life to Christ, this South Korean-turned-American citizen felt called by God to help North Korean refugees escape from Chinese enslavement. In 2003, he was arrested while leading a prayer meeting of nine North Koreans in his apartment.
Kim would spend the next four years in a Chinese labor camp. Despite great hardship and suffering, he immersed himself in the Scriptures and led fellow inmates, including a hardened murderer, and his prison guard to Christ.
Since his release, Kim has been a powerful advocate for North Korean refugees in China, raising awareness about their plight and fighting for their human rights.
Kim's story is thrilling, heartbreaking, and victorious. His life reminds us that God can use anyone in any circumstance to achieve great things for His kingdom!
