Have you ever heard of Robert Jermain Thomas? You may not be familiar with his story, but his willingness to enter a country that would immediately execute any foreigner who stepped on their soil and secretly gift Bibles to others, brought Christ to a country that was considered impenetrable. This is an amazing story we all need to hear. It will bring you courage to step out in faith in your own life.
Robert Jermain Thomas’ Story
Robert J. Thomas left Great Britain with his wife Carrie and went to China as missionaries because they believed God was calling them to Asia. They were prepared to give up everything to follow his calling.
When his wife died in the mission field, Robert began to doubt their calling. It wasn’t until Robert met two Christian Korean men, who had been secretly leaving the country and returning unnoticed, that he “realized his suffering was nothing compared to need” and remembered his wife saying that they would follow no matter the cost.
With a renewed desire to light up Asia for Jesus, Robert willingly entered “the hermit kingdom,” which had previously executed 10,000 Christians and destroyed any Bibles found. Learning this fact encouraged him all the more to simply hand out Bibles. With this simple act, he not only handed out Bibles but handed over his life–a life that God used to turn Korea into the second largest missionary-sending nation in the world!
