“From a hovel in a North Korean town and the status of beggar that is total destitution, through dungeon, fire, and sword, to a place of high respect and honor, Dr. Hong’s story will make you laugh, cry, and sigh.”
—Pastor Donald Sheley
So begins the story of Dr. Woo Jun Hong. When he was living in a humble home in the village of Um-Jang Ni in North Korea, Woo Jun Hong had no idea what sweet and bitter roads lay ahead. He would experience imprisonment and persecution at the hands of the North Korean Communists; a daring escape to freedom in South Korea; trials and successes in starting a new life; the desire to help all the hungry, war-orphaned children; and the need to share his belief in Christ with all who would listen. With unwavering belief, Woo Jun Hong kept sight of his goals and opened what has become the largest Christian school in the world.
The true story of this remarkable man and his work will be an inspiration to all who read it. The personal words of faith will provide encouragement for those who face life’s challenges.
