Widower Ministers to Husbands of Exploited Women

The widowed husband of a sex-trafficked North Korean woman is now ministering to other Chinese men who purchased trafficked wives. Desperate, impoverished North Korean women are at high risk for trafficking, and the disproportionate number of men in China (due to the country’s former “one-child policy”) has contributed to the problem. Mr. K acquired his wife, Mrs. H, through traffickers, but over the years God brought them into contact with a loving church. As the two grew in their love for Christ, they also grew in their love for one another. Last year, Mr. K lost Mrs. H to cancer, and a VOM worker said his grief has helped solidify his budding faith. Mr. K now plans to serve as a mentor to other Chinese husbands of trafficked women. Pray for him and others involved in this unique ministry.
