As most of you know the church in China has grown tremendously and the underground church is amazing, especially under persecution. Which is why when I read this story from my friends at Salem Voice News, my heart is grieved. I think it's easy to forget sometimes that missionaries willingly go to places where they know there is danger. In fact, last night at my churches Halloween alternative, I was talking to a young man in my church who has a tremendous burden for China and who wants to finish college so he can go there to teach English. I know if it was him that was murdered, I would be heartbroken. So, please keep the families of these missionaries in your prayers, because they were someone's family. Thanks.
