You can change a North Korean refugee’s life forever!

You can save a North Korean escapee from the threat of deportation.

When was the last time you were assured that your actions would have such an impact? Well, today I can assure you that through your committed prayers and your support, you can!

Every day, North Koreans try to cross into other countries. Some make it… but many do not. For those caught trying to escape they are either shot dead or sent to a labor camp.

The danger doesn’t end after they escape. They remain in constant fear of being deported back to North Korea, many become gravely ill, some are sold into slave-like conditions, and worse.

First and foremost, I am asking you to pray that every person who escapes North Korea will find their way to safety.

And that they find their way to one of the safe houses that donors like you have provided through Open Doors. There they receive food, shelter, clothing, privacy and the message of Christ.

More good news is that valued partners of Open Doors have offered to match every gift you give for these safe houses up to $33,000. The gift you send is doubled!

Thanks to your generosity we are so close to our goal. We need only $10,350 by May 15 to provide safety for all 1,500 refugees

Raised so far

But let’s not stop there. If we exceed our goal, we can expand our reach by serving others who face persecution in other parts of the world. What a blessing to be able to serve so many brothers and sisters!

We can’t do this without you!

Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

My Epic performing their last final show before COVID-19

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.

HM Magazine Turns 35

In 1985, Doug Van Pelt photocopied a letter-sized sheets of paper, bound them together, and handed them out in person on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. It's all digital now, but, along the way, Van Pelt stirred up quite a few waves, played some seriously heavy music, and made a few friends along the way. Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.
