Walking On Tree-lined Street And Praying

Osanri Choi Ja-sil Memorial Fasting Prayer Mountain, Seoul, South Korea: Osanri Choi Ja-sil Memorial Fasting Prayer Mountain is about one hour north of Seoul. It was established in 1973 to provide a secluded place of prayer and fasting. We also saw elderly Christians in prayer walk about the place. This particular stretch is named “Victory Road”. I have even seen a man on a walking stick on a prayer walk at night! Respect
