God's Word does work- and sometimes in mysterious, or at least ingenious, ways.
One of the great missionary challenges today is getting the Gospel of Christ into North Korea, perhaps the most closed country in the world. Under longtime communist dictatorship, North Korea has ruthlessly suppressed all religions.
Yet where there's a will (God's Will) there's a way. One mission agency found such a way. The group purchased high-quality, bright-orange balloons, each in the shape of a large square pillow. On the balloons they printed all forty-eight pages of a Korean-language Scripture booklet entitled How to Know God. Then the Scripture balloons were filled with helium and floated across the North Korean border at night.
Thousands of balloons were floated beyond the reach of North Korea's two million soldiers and landed softly on farms, villages, and city streets. When they could, Communist officials angrily confiscated the balloons. But that's all right. Reports have indicated that communists read them too.
