I’m lying here in prison, sentenced to three years for holding a Bible Study. My family and friends warned me to be careful because of an ongoing crackdown on believers. I and five other believers were taken into custody because our Bible Study didn’t have the government’s approval. When I was on trial, I was accused of “gathering a crowd to disturb public order.”
Three years doesn’t seem like a long time but I’m counting the days until I’m free again. I pray and draw strength from the apostle Paul who didn’t let being in prison get him down. He wasn’t alone. God was with him. He’s with me too.
I close my eyes now and imagine I’m outside of these walls, holding a Bible Study in a field, under a beautiful blue sky. When I leave here, I’ll return to worshipping God and leading others to Him. I’m not afraid of what the government could do to me. Nothing short of death will stop me now.
I was inspired by a true story of a Chinese Christian Woman who was sentenced to three years in prison after holding Bible Study.
