On Jan. 26, 1948, Evangelical Covenant Church missionaries Dr. Alexis Berg, Esther V. Nordlund, and Martha J. Anderson were buried in Hankou after being killed in rural Hubei by communist soldiers. Decades later, Hubei police officers seized 27-year-old Yu Zhongju (余中菊姊妹) and other members of the South China Church in May 2001. Yu died from torture on July 18 after refusing to testify against church leaders, leaving behind a husband and 6-year-old son. Pray for Christians in Hubei to persevere in trials. James 1:2-4 "Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing."
