STURGIS, S.D. (BP) -- Closer to the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally's bar scene and with an extra three-hour nightly shift, Baptist volunteers nearly tripled the professions of faith recorded last year.
The Dakota Baptist Convention-led outreach -- with its popular giveaway of a Harley-Davidson motorcycle -- gave 120 volunteers from at least 20 states and Canada 3,654 opportunities to share three-minute testimonies, up from 2,141 last year, leading to professions of faith by 513 people, up from 178 in 2013.
"It was a wise decision that Garvon [Golden, DBC executive director] had, to move locations," said Buck Hill, the convention's missions director. "It put us deeper into the jungle, into the devil's playground."

This article discusses the story that North Koreans travel to China to seek for food, but find Christ. The North Korean government has found that many North Korean get food and shelters at Christian churches close to the Sino-North Korean border and some became Christians when returning North Korea. Out of fear, the North Korean regime has eliminated the traveling permits for its citizens to visit China and warned the citizens not to contact Christian missionaries who reach out to North Koreans in China. Last month, North Korea even publicly blamed Christian missionaries for what they called “internal problems and human rights issues.” An ICC contact on the ground said "the border is very tense right now."

A Christian Arab is working on his plan to build a statue of Jesus in Nazareth, the childhood home of Jesus which is now dominated by Arab Muslim citizens of Israel. It will be, he says, larger than the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil.
"Slowly, but surely, the Christian identity in Nazareth is beginning to disappear," said Bishara Shlayan, a Christian merchant seaman from Nazareth who has come up with the plan, according to Fox News.

"God has never allowed the power of darkness to overcome the Church in North Korea. We give You praise and thanks that the Gospel is still being preached to North Korean people even in warlike persecution." -Thomas Kim
(North Korea) - He escaped from North Korea 15 years ago and became a Christian in South Korea. On a recent mission trip to North Korea's Hamgyong province, he found young leaders well-trained in Christian theology, eager to build God's underground Church in one of the most repressive and isolated governments on earth.
