China News & Prayer

Shall Not Want “My friend had told me that he spent RMB 600,000 on decorating his new house. As a volunteer working for the church, this was unbelievable that that would ever happen on me. My parents are simple villagers living in rural areas; my wife is at work with an income of only RMB 2,000 a month. Although I could save some money every year, I dare not think of earning such a fortune. My friend had made himself […]

Lupus Erythematosus “I have systemic lupus erythematosus for eight years. I have gastric trouble since young age and started to get constipation and diarrhea when I grew older. Last year, I had constipation for several months, followed by diarrhea for more than half a year. My health problem has relapsed, and for 18 days I haven’t had any bowel movement. Having been hospitalized for three days and fasted for two days with nutrient solution, I feel distressed. Is it because […]

Yearned To Be Understood “I have really experienced God’s grace and have changed a lot in the past 3 years. I have worked in a company for 2 years and found a new church near my home. I started to participate in my church ministry a year before. There is small scale church. Their residences are close to one another, so they will get together a bit more. But I cannot attend Sunday services because I have to work. Other […]

Sense of Crisis “I feel that the practice and traditions in the church have been secularized. The spirituality of the church is going downhill. I even have the feeling that it has gone out of control. I requested the church to hold a pastoral staff meeting on gospel work but the chance of its being held is very remote. As the church members grows, there are a lot more divided opinions. The original pure faith of looking upon the Lord […]

I Still Have Heartache “I have heartache as my boyfriend has hurt me repeatedly. Yesterday he said on the phone that he would not blacklist me again. He mentioned that he wanted to live in the Lord after marriage in the future. But he blacklisted me the next day. I felt that staying alive was too painful. Last year, my boyfriend wanted to break up. I can’t sleep well and felt depression. So I took antidepressants. God comforted me through […]

A Tumor Developed “My 81-year-old father-in-law suddenly developed a tumor above his nose a few months ago. The doctor found that he couldn’t undergo surgery as the tumor was malignant. His tumor was growing quickly and it was so big that it completely covered his right eye. Half of his left eye was left uncovered and he sheds tears constantly. The tumor pressed his nose and hindered his breath. He has not believed in Jesus yet. I’m very worried about […]

Umbilical Cord Around the Neck “Since the umbilical cord was around the neck when the child was born, both mother and child were in danger. However, we thank God for saving my child and myself through the efforts of the doctors. We should thank God for watching over us and granting us peace which transcends all understanding. As a result of these experiences, I treasure and care for the child all the more. May the child grow up in God’s […]

Struggle with Drug Abuse “One day I discovered that my husband has been taking methadone every day. He is a drug addict and he is hiding this from me. My husband has always been good to me and our child, retrospectively speaking. Always trying his best to make ends meet and our wants satisfied, he has been working hard to get out of the addiction to return to normalcy. Besides, my husband needs to travel every day to take care […]

Supervision by Government “Staff of the Township Government Office came to our church on Sunday while we were having worship. They wanted the leader to sign the consent to the government’s joining the management of the church. We, otherwise, will not be allowed to continue with our gatherings. Some church staff refused for fear that the church wouldn’t have any say in anything after signing the consent. The government officials got by force the fingerprint of an old lady who […]
