Christians in Wuhan, China, still preach the Gospel on the streets despite novel coronavirus outbreak and government persecutions.
Christian witnesses are openly sharing their faith at the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan, China. They are not only risking their lives from being contaminated by the deadly virus, but they are also risking their selves from being persecuted by Chinese authorities.
Despite the national crisis, the persecutions of the Christians from the Communist government of China are still severe. Openly talking about Christian beliefs is illegal under the Communist government.
Christians sharing the gospel
But bold Christians are taking advantage of the need for surgical masks. To prevent contracting the virus, and also to hide their identities from the authorities while they share the Gospel. A group of Chinese Christians is also giving away masks with a Gospel tract to the public.
“There are Christians, a ministry in Wuhan, they go out to the streets. They’re very courageous,” CBN News Asia Correspondent Lucille Talusan said. “They give out masks and they say that they are Christians and they share the love of Christ and point to Jesus to bring hope to them and their families and the whole of China… This is really a break-through.”
Father Francis Liu from the Chinese Christian Fellowship of Righteousness shared a video of encouraging sermons being played on speakers for the community to hear.

Novel Coronavirus outbreak
The total number of people affected by the novel coronavirus is now 40,770 worldwide. And 40,170 of those patients come from China. The death toll now also surpassed the SARS outbreak in 2003 as novel coronavirus has already killed 910 people as of today.
As the crisis heightens, people in China are now more receptive to the Word of God and the Gospel of Christ. They are conquering their fear and uncertainty with their faith in the Lord.
Call for prayer
Christians around the world are urged to pray for those who were affected by the outbreak. Let us claim the victory and healing through Christ over this virus.
