On October 18, 1950, Pyongyang prison was bustling with activity. Prisoners whispered to one another as they watched soldiers dash back and forth.
“The Communist have been ordered to pull out of Pyongyang!” They said. Some were excited to hear this news. Others were terrified. What would happen to them?
That night, all 500 prisoners were taken behind the prison.
They were shot and killed.
Many of their bodies were left on the ground. Others were tossed into a hastily dug pit.
Among these prisoners was a man called Cho Man-Sik, also known as the Gandhi of South Korea.
To learn more about Cho Man-Sik and how his life relates to Reigning Over Creation, tune in to Pastor Foley’s weekly video:
