Sup Travellers?! I don't talk about religion on this blog but no matter what religion you are, i'm sure that the concept of delivering aid to other nations can be considered amazing no matter how small. Am I right? A Colorado Christian group is being highly praised for air dropping Bibles all over North Korea spreading the Gospel to the people. 

Fox NewsFOX News reports that over the past year, Pastor Eric Foley and his Christian mission group, Seoul USA, have released around 50,000 40-foot homemade, hydrogen-filled balloons outfitted with Bibles and personal testimonials over rural areas of the country. Christians in North Korea are reportedly the most executed believers on earth. As much as 30,000 Christians "are believed to be locked inside concentration camps, where they are overworked, starved, tortured, and killed." In 2009, a 33-year-old woman was publicly executed in North Korea after being accused of distributing the Bible.

The sad part is that if any one is caught with the Bibles in North Korea they may get jailed or executed. Sending the Bibles could actually cause more physical harm than good but it's all about eternal salvation right? I would also love to see the same group or another group use their balloon technology to air drop some food in the Philippines. Even though food is already being dropped by Cargo planes I think that the Philippines could use as much help as they could possibly get. Things aren't looking too good over there. But all in all, I believe that Pastor Eric Foley's motion is a good start. Big up to him and his crew!! Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
