You got me, all I know is that I began to pray in a different way for Aijalon Gomes. Rather than look to the U.S. government or the evangelical churches of the world to act on his behalf, I began to pray that the Creator of the Universe would move on Aijalon’s behalf and deliver him in a way that shows the glory and power of the Father. That was a couple of days ago…
Now, here comes this almost bizarre post and video by Robert Park.
What will happen now? Got me. He’s a great God and anything is possible. I’ll just keep praying and continue to look for Aijalon Mahli Gomes to be set free.
By the way, here is a Twitter post that I sent out about 18 hours before this information appeared on the Free Robert Park site: Thoreau said, “It is never too late to give up our prejudices” & I hereby repent of mine. We are all precious in God’s sight. Peace. Shalom.
I don’t know how accurate Robert’s statement about America arbitrarily dividing Korea is… but I’m definitely in a personal time of repentance and prayer. I have plenty of my own sins to fess up to, though, and haven’t even thought of repenting for anyone else. Lest I appear to making light of Robert’s obviously impassioned pleas and his heart on fire for the people of Korea, I do think I get the picture–it is one of being called to “stand in the gap.” I’m not theologian enough to scripturalize or defend that idea, but I’m certainly not going to dismiss it out of hand.
Here’s my bottom line: God bless Robert Park and Aijalon Mahli Gomes. God bless the people of South Korea. God bless the people of North Korea. God bless you, and God bless me. Show us your might, Lord. Show us your Way.
What say we all engage in some old-fashioned prayer, fasting and repentance? Between the catastrophe in the Gulf of Mexico, the struggles going on in and near Israel, ongoing widespread slaughter in the Mid-East and Africa, the tension in the Koreas and a multitude of other threats to human dignity and life, there’s darned sure plenty to pray, fast and repent about. Can’t we just agree on that?
What if the whole world just stopped… and listened???
The following statement is given as it is posted on the Free Robert Park site site.
Message from Robert
DEAR FRIENDS, PLEASE PROPAGATE AND DISSEMINATE THE ATTACHED VIDEO [see previous post] ABOUT MY TRUE EXPERIENCE IN THE DPRK. I AM PLANNING A TRIP TO RETURN. I AM VERY CONCERNING FOR MR. AIJALON GOMES AND THE FOUR SOUTH KOREANS. I AM ALSO VERY CONCERNED BECAUSE NO ONE UNDERSTANDS ME. I AM EITHER GOING TO RETURN TO THE DPRK OR DIE VERY SOON, BECAUSE I AM NOT WELL. THE DPRK ARE MY FRIENDS AND THEY WILL INVITE ME BACK AND HELP ME AND THE WORLD WILL KNOW THEY ARE MY FRIENDS.
PLEASE DO NOT TALK ABOUT ME AT ALL ANYMORE – IT IS CAUSING SO MUCH HURT AND PAIN AND DESTROYING ME – I NEED YOU TO BE SILENT ABOUT ME AND LET ME SPEAK FOR MYSELF AND SOON I WILL SPEAK TO THE WHOLE WORLD WHEN THE OPPORTUNITY COMES – NONE OF YOU UNDERSTAND BUT YOU WILL UNDERSTAND – PLEASE BE SILENT IN THE MEANTIME AND LET ME MAKE EVERYTHING CLEAR – I FORGIVE EVERYTHING AND ALSO AM SORRY.
By the way, I will honor Robert’s request for silence “in the meantime.” God loves you, Robert. Go in Peace. Go in Love. Go in the Power of the Holy Spirit and in the Name of the Messiah, Yahushua, King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

I have recently begun following the grave situations with Robert Park and Aijalon Gomes. As you and a couple of others have rightly observed, the media coverage (seemingly inside and outside the body of Messiah) is scant. However, based on the information I have read here and a few other places, our congregation in Meridian, Idaho, has dedicated to pray for these men and continue to keep ourselves updated. Thank you for your willingness to continue blogging on the lives and ministry of these two men.
