May 9th and 10th, Brother Xing and Brother
Qi came back. They told the coworkers the details of their
experiences of being confined by the EL. They related how
the EL teachers denied the Bible, how they promoted their
Female Christ to replace Jesus the Savior, and how they mistreated
our coworkers by vile means such as cheating, threatening,
drugs, sexual seduction, etc. Everyone could tell how they
had been hurt physically and spiritually. Thinking of the
situation of those who were still in the evil hands of the
EL, their hearts were deeply broken. They prayed even more
earnestly that God would protect His servants.
May 14th, Brother Zhang and another sister came
back. They looked thin and pallid, yet their hearts were still
so concerned about the church. When they were told that the
coworkers had taken precautions against the EL and were keeping
the church in good order, they finally felt comforted. They
brought back news that the EL people had promised to release
all of our coworkers in two days. Everyone was very delighted.
However, two days passed, not even one person came back. The
Eastern Lightning had fooled us again.
