On Feb. 4, 781 (Jan. 7 on the Lunar Calendar), a monument was erected in Chang’an (now Xi'an) to record the history of Nestorian Christians in China. The Nestorian Stele records the existence of a thriving church planted after 635 by Persian missionary Alopen (阿罗本) with the active support of Emperor Tang Taizong (唐太宗). The monument was buried during a crackdown instigated by Daoists in 845 and not rediscovered until 1625. Pray for the Infinite-Personal Creator God to be glorified as Chinese believers manifest the joy that comes from being one in Him. Psalm 100:1-5 "Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth! Serve the Lord with gladness! Come into his presence with singing! Know that the Lord, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name! For the Lord is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations."
