China prayer vigil

My grandfather grew up as a missionary kid in China in the early 1900s. He told exciting stories, including one of how he and his dad hid in a haystack while the soldiers stabbed into it with their swords.

Even though there are some officially sanctioned churches in China, many Christians attend house churches and are still heavily persecuted.

One of my friends is involved with a missionary group in China, and they are having a prayer vigil next week. If you're interested in signing up for a time slot, either e-mail me or leave a comment and I'll connect you to the sign up wiki.

Prayer might seem like a little thing, but it's not--it's the most powerful thing you can do.
