As the death toll from the corona virus rises and the number of confirmed cases escalates, fear and insecurity is gripping the 11 million residents of Wuhan, a city in China’s Hubei province, the epicenter of the outbreak. But according to Lucille Talusan, Asia correspondent for the Christian Broadcasting Network, Christians there have been out on the streets distributing masks and sharing the love of Jesus and the hope which the Gospel brings.
One Chinese pastor living in Wuhan, wrote to the international faith community, urging them to pray. He said that fellow pastors from around the world had been reaching out to them. “It is readily apparent that we are facing a test of our faith,” the pastor wrote. “The situation is so critical, yet we are trusting in the Lord’s promises, that his thoughts toward us are of peace, and not evil (Jer. 29:11), and that He allows for a time of testing, not to destroy us, but to establish us. Therefore, Christians are not only to suffer with the people of this city, but we have a responsibility to pray for those in this city who are fearful, and to bring to them the peace of Christ… Wuhan’s pestilence cannot separate us from the love of Christ; this love is in our Lord Jesus Christ.”
The corona virus, which causes a respiratory infection with mild to severe flu-like symptoms, has spread to at least two dozen countries, including the United States on a much smaller scale. Even as hospitals in the U.S. are gearing up to handle the potential spread of the virus, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that the U.S. is ready to spend $100 million to help China and other affected countries. He added that the U.S. also helped ship to China 17.8 tons of donated supplies.
Persecution watchdog group, International Christian Concern (ICC), noted China’s Christian community’s efforts to provide hope and refuge to those suffering. They noted that encouraging sermons were being broadcasted to many Chinese communities through speakers placed on balconies. There is also a report of one Christian man who rode his bike to a pharmacy where people gathered and played a sermon through a portable speaker. A video circulated on social media showing Christians distributing face masks and Gospel pamphlets to passersby on the streets as a sermon played in the background. Additionally, Christians from other provinces have been offering their homes to host people who face housing discrimination as they flee from Hubei province.
We praise God for the Christian love that is being exhibited by our Christian brethren in China. Hebrews 13:2 says, “Be not forgetful to entertain strangers; for some have entertained angels unawares.” Let us remember to pray for the people of that nation that as a result of the love and kindness of God’s people, many will be won to Jesus Christ. Praise the Lord!
