Southern Baptists in North Korea

Aidan Foster-Carter admits that his "article is really boring. And ever so depressing" — North Koreans: Still hungry. Who cares? This bit, however, is neither boring nor depressing:
    I don't trust Pyongyang, but I do trust Christian Friends of Korea (CFK). Southern Baptists: what image does that conjure up? Right-wing, preaching hellfire? Not the ones I know. CFK feeds the hungry and heals the sick - in North Korea. They've been going in and out since 1995, raising US$42 million to date for food and medical aid, especially for tuberculosis.
