On Dec. 5, 1978, then 28-year-old former Red Guard Wei Jingsheng (魏京生先生) posted "The Fifth Modernization" on Beijing’s Democracy Wall as a response to Deng Xiaoping's (邓小平) essay on his Four Modernizations. Wei’s parents were Communist Party members and he was educated in elite schools in Beijing. During his time in rural China as a sent-down youth and as a PLA soldier, Wei became an opponent of communism. He ultimately spent a total of 18 years in different prisons in China before being exiled to the United States on Nov. 1997. Wei has remained a PRC citizen. Pray for exiled Chinese to find joy in the presence of the Lord as they discover the path of life. You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore. Psalm 16: 11
