North Korea needs your prayers
BMS World Mission’s Project Cyrus initiative has led to hundreds of churches and supporters praying for the people of North Korea over the past three years. BMS General Director David Kerrigan would love to share with you some of the answers to those prayers – answers so tangible we simply can’t talk about them outside of Project Cyrus Prayer Events like these.
Come and listen to the story of how God laid the North Korean people on the heart of Robert Jermain Thomas, who was martyred there in 1866, and and hear what God is doing right now.
Project Cyrus is about some of the most exciting work BMS is privileged to do. We look forward to sharing it with you – and to seeing great things in the days to come.

David was responsible for BMS work in Nepal, Thailand, Indonesia and India. In 1997 David visited Afghanistan for the first time, then still under Taliban rule, and negotiated the beginning of BMS work there.
