Meili: Set Free in China
Meili had never heard the name of Jesus. No one in her Chinese village was a Christian.
Then one day, an old woman from a village far away gave Meili a booklet called “The Gospel.” Meili read it and realized that she was a sinner. She confessed her sins to God and trusted in Jesus as her Savior.
But Meili had no Bible and no one to teach her more about Christianity. So she was happy when two missionaries visited her home and said they were “Christians.” The visitors gave her a different booklet, but not a Bible. They told her what she needed to do to be part of their group.
1. They said, “You must be healthy and have plenty of money to prove that God likes you.”
2. The visitors also said, “You must confess your sins to us every day.”
3. And they said, “If you donate money to us, we will pray for you.”
Meili no longer felt happy; she felt confused and uncomfortable. She didn’t know that the visitors were not really Christians. They belonged to a group that did not follow the Bible.
Not long after the visitors left, a friend of The Voice of the Martyrs found out about the fake Christians. He gave Bibles to people in Meili’s village. Meili read her new Bible eagerly and was filled with peace. The truth that she read set her free from her confusion.
