Recently a VOM international worker made a trip to visit persecuted Christians in China. He kept a video diary of the trip, which we have been sharing this week on the Persecution Blog.
In this final installment, we return to Beijing and meet with Wenxi Li and his family.
Though he was imprisoned for two years for his work in a Christian bookstore in China, Wenxi Li was encouraged to be strong in the Lord through letters received from believers around the world. Over 2,700 letters filled with Scripture verses, prayers, and messages of hope were sent to him while he was in prison. Read more of his story here.
When VOM workers recently met with Wenxi Li and his family, he was able to share about his time spent in prison, his struggles as he was forced to do hard labor intensive jobs, and what it meant to know that believers were praying for him and his family. You can encourage prisoners being held for their faith in Christ by writing a letter through Prisoner Alert (www.prisoneralert.com).
