"After suffering as a Christian in China..."
My friend Pastor Beine He of the Chinese Christian Church of Charlottesville had a feature article titled "After suffering as a Christian in China ... I became a U. S. citizen," in the Sunday edition (1/31/10) of Charlottesville's Daily Progress.
Beine became a U.S. citizen on January 22nd. Though I had heard his testimony before, reading this article was a reminder of the privileges of religious freedoms we enjoy in the US. It also gave me new admiration for this humble, faithful pastor. I am glad to have Beine and his family among my friends and colleagues in ministry.
