Bong Su Church Mission to the Hungry
in North Korea

About Our Partner

Korean Christians Federation

The Bong Su Bread Factory is a project of the Korean Christians Federation, the official Protestant Church in North Korea. Friends from abroad buy flour in China and ship it to the Church in North Korea. The church-run bread factory bakes the bread. Then it is distributed to children’s homes. The Rev. Choon Lim, who is the Regional Liaison for East Asia for the Presbyterian Church (USA), coordinates the purchase and shipping of the flour. Originally from North Korea himself, Choon Lim sees this mission as a way of building a bridge of love through the North Korean Church between Christians in the United States and the people of North Korea.

The Impact

The Church in North Korea serves hungry people through the Bong Su Bread Factory. Its impact was shared by an unnamed official in this way: “I know what good work that you do on behalf of the Presbyterian Church. When we were hungry, you brought food, and when we were sick, you brought us medicine, and when we were cold you brought us blankets...I can assure you that when things loosen up a little, those of us who have benefited from the love of Christians will go to the church, taking up the front seats, and participate in worship!”

The Need

The Outreach Foundation is seeking gifts totaling $10,000 to provide flour for the Korean Christians Federation to feed hungry children in North Korea.
