Aijalon Mahli Gomes’ situation–alone and forsaken in a North Korean prison camp, while his country and his people have plenty of other issues to worry about–seems impossibly sad. He picked an inconvenient time to display his compassion for the people of North Korea. We can only hope that his mission won’t be entirely in vain, and that he will survive the ordeal with an intact mind and body. Right?
Not so, says Brother Yun, a leader in the Chinese underground Church. Not so at all. God still works miracles, even the kind of miracle that released the Apostle Peter from prison, as described in the book of Acts, Chapter 12. How does Brother Yun know this? It happened to him. His story is told in the book, The Heavenly Man: The Remarkable True Story of Chinese Christian Brother Yun.
Could such a thing happen to Aijalon Gomes? It seems to me that anything–absolutely anything–is possible in this world. Personally, I’m going to change my prayers for Aijalon to “Lord, perform a miracle in this situation. Use the plight of Aijalon Mahli Gomes to display your majesty and your glory throughout the Earth. Let the whole world know, Father, that the North Korean gulag has absolutely NO power over you, Adonai. May your will be done.”
