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.”
Gomes may not be in a North Korean labor camp yet. Rather, per Laura Ling and Euna Lee before him, he could very well be at the (same) Pyongyang guest house, while his captors negotiate or hope to negotiate w/U.S.
Maybe, Richard. My tendency is to compare the plight of Aijalon Gomes more to that of Robert Park than to Laura and Euna. Aijalon is not a high profile situation. Compare Robert Park’s treatment to that of the lady journalists, and you will detect a big difference. Also, in either case, he is most certainly being held against his will and denied free access to the people. I do appreciate your input. Some day, I hope we will know what happened. I admire the good work done by the Liberate Laura site. Kudos!
I will continue to keep both Robert and Aijalon in my prayers. Thank you for sharing this video of Brother Yun to give hope to all who view it.

I would like to receive e-mails now and then of how it is with Brother Yun and his family.
As a Christian I of ten think of what they was willing to suffer for Christ and His Kingdom.
May God bless you and keep you.
If ever he might come to South Africa, I would like to visit a meeting.

Can Brother Yun not please come to South Africa as well?
We would love to hear him speak.
