Lorna Dueck and Cheryl Weber rejoice and share details about Canadian Pastor Hyeon Soo Lim's release after he was sentenced to a life of hard labour in 2015 for anti-state activities in North Korea. In an answer to prayer, Pastor Lim was released due to health reasons; the news was announced after a delegation from the Canadian government went to Pyongyang to discuss Lim's case. Pastor Lim landed back in Canada on Saturday morning. He received a warm welcome home from his family and his church in Mississauga, Ontario.
100 Huntley Street sent cameras to the press conference on Saturday and to the church celebration on Sunday where Cheryl Weber and Lorna Dueck were present for Rev. Lim's first public appearance.
"It is God that kept Pastor Lim company during his time in prison," said son James Lim at the press conference. "As a family we can't even begin to share our gratitude towards the Canadian public. To those in Canada, as well as all around the world, that have prayed for us, supported us, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We are proud to be Canadians."
It is a happy chapter in a story that 100 Huntley Street has been telling, pleading the plight of Rev. Lim with the help of Lisa Pak, a family spokesperson, since he first went missing two and a half years ago.
