"The uncertainty of North Korea's new leader Kim Jong-un isn't uncertain anymore. According to Christian Aid Mission, a missionary reports that the North Korean people feel that Kim Jong-un is making life even harder for Christians than his father and grandfather did. In the early 1900s, Pyongyang was referred to as the Jerusalem of the East. Now North Korea is considered to be the world's most hostile nation to Christianity. Today, there could be up to 400,000 Christians in North Korea. Despite ever-present dangers of imprisonment, brutality, and death, faithful followers of Jesus Christ remain committed to sharing the gospel in the midst of very difficult circumstances.
