Australian John Short was taken prisoner in North Korea. He was interrogated for hours each morning and again each afternoon. He was forced to write a “confession” of his “crimes,” including the offense of wanting more North Koreans to follow Jesus. But if God asked him today, Short would happily go back.
Mr. Short shares this week on VOM Radio how God strengthened him during his captivity, the Scriptures and earthly examples that most encouraged him, and how he managed to take a measure of control back from his captors — and even make them nervous.
Mr. Short agreed to only two media interviews after his release from North Korea; one of them was with his hometown newspaper back in Australia, and the other was with The Voice of the Martyrs Radio Network. Listen below for the first part of our interview with Mr. Short; the second half will be posted next week.
