A Canadian pastor who was imprisoned for more than two years in North Korea arrived back home Saturday.

Hyeon Soo Lim was serving a life sentence of hard labor in North Korea for alleged anti-state activities, but was released last week on what the North Korean government described as sick bail.

His son, James Lim, said it was surreal to see him again after living in fear over what might happen to him.

James Lim said his dad was extremely grateful to the Canadian government. He said his father was resting at home and looked forward to going to his church’s Sunday service and meeting with the community after so long.

“Now more than ever, he’s never felt more Canadian,” the son said.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau sent national security adviser Daniel Jean to North Korea to seek Rev Lim’s freedom.
