Pray for Wang Xiuling, a Chinese Believer Who Received a Bible


A Chinese Christian recently sent VOM a thank-you letter after receiving a Bible during a VOM-sponsored Bible distribution. Wang Xiuling wrote, “Thank you for your selfless love and offering which enabled many people here to get Bibles, the precious words of God. To be honest, I have never read through a book in Bible. I only had a superficial knowledge of God’s words. I have not believed in the Lord for long. I am still young in my spiritual life. I hope that I can read God’s words carefully this time.” Please pray for Wang Xiuling as she continues to read her new Bible, and pray for other new believers who have received a Bible.
