A Walk Through History:

On Jan. 24, 1974, Xu Daoheng (许道亨弟兄) was arrested for being a counter-revolutionary. Xu was born into a Christian family in Fujian in 1928. His great-grandfather was a prominent Christian. Although Xu became a Christian at a young age, he did very little to serve the Lord until the church was under assault during the Cultural Revolution. In 1969, he felt God’s call to evangelize from 2 Tim. 4:2,5. Until his arrest, God used Xu to ignite a great revival, first in Fuzhou and then throughout Fujian. He preached with great power; churches were planted; miraculous healings abounded and thousands were baptized. He was jailed for over five years and almost died from illness during that time. After he was released, God used him to combat the “shouters” heresy in the early 1980’s. Pray for pastors in Fujian to preach the Word and fulfill the ministry given them by God. 2 Timothy 4:2, 5 "Preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching…As for you, always be sober-minded, endure suffering, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry."
