Kim II Sung turned away from the faith of his fathers and led a great purge of Christians in his country. In every conceivable manner, he opposed the gospel and instilled fear in the people.
In an apparent quest to exterminate Christianity, the North Korean government, led by Kim II Sung descended heavily on the Church in that country. Massive arrests of Christian leaders were made, gulags were created and raids were carried out on any place affiliated to Christianity.
A fellow prisoner was full of hate for Christians, and made it her duty to report Mrs. Pak whenever she prayed or fasted.

Mr. Lee had just been released from prison, but had to sneak into China from North Korea in desperate bid to save his family from starvation. Once in China, he was surrounded by the loving care of the Christian brethren there, who, led by Mrs. Pak, made sure to take care of not just his temporal, but also his spiritual needs.
