When Her Husband Was Detained in North Korea, She “Simply Trusted the Lord”

Christian talk radio with Todd Nettleton

April 3, 2021

Karen Short’s husband, John, was detained inside North Korea, held incommunicado. Yet Karen never felt panicked about what would happen to him. “I simply trusted the Lord,” she says. John Short, an Australian Christian, was detained in North Korea in 2014 after leaving gospel tracts outside a Buddhist temple while part of a tour. Karen was home in Hong Kong, dealing with media attention, praying for her husband and receiving words of encouragement from all around the world. Listen in as Karen shares: How God ministered to her during John’s detention; How she and John stayed connected through Scripture—even though they couldn’t communicate during his detention; How journalists and others responded when they observed Karen’s calm assurance and faith in God; How she learned that her husband would be released and allowed to return home; The one thing she wishes she’d done differently—it will surprise you! The story of Karen’s faithfulness will inspire you to trust more deeply in God and dive deeper into His Word, even if you’re not planning a trip to North Korea. VOM Radio also shared John’s side of the story of what happened in North Korea. Listen on vomradio.net. Never miss an episode of VOM Radio. Subscribe to the podcast!
