Please Pray For The Persecuted: Hualin’s wife is in prison because she is a Christian. Hualin is home caring for their two small children who ask continuously when mom is coming home. Pray Hualin’s prayer with him, “Pray for the Chinese church, because from my point of view a lot of churches are not acting as salt and light. For my family, pray for my wife to come home as soon as possible. Pray for her to keep her strong faith in God and also share her faith in jail. Her lawyer says that she is sharing the Gospel in jail.”
