Pray for Wenxi and Cai Hong Li


Wenxi Li, who received a two-year prison sentence in June 2013 for involvement with a Christian book store, is scheduled for release on Dec. 18. Since his transfer to a prison in Shanxi province a few months ago, he has received better treatment and has been allowed to make brief phone calls to his family. His wife, Cai Hong Li, says he sounds encouraged and is in good health. She told VOM staff that Wenxi Li is passionate about the book-store ministry and will likely want to resume his work soon after his release.
