Chinese Christians imprisoned for their faith are memorizing Scripture passages smuggled to them on small pieces of paper because prison guards “can’t take what’s hidden in your heart,” one former prisoner revealed.  
 
In a recent sermon, Wayne Cordeiro, pastor of New Hope Christian Fellowship in Honolulu, Hawaii, shared an experience he had on a trip to China, where the church went to train leaders.
 
The pastor shared how 22 Christians from the Hunan Province took a 13-hour train ride to attend the leadership training held at a 700-square-foot hotel room. Out of the 22 Christians present, 18 had been imprisoned for their faith, the pastor revealed.
 
“If we get caught what will happen to me?” Cordeiro began by asking.
 
“Well, you will get deported in 24 hours, and we will go to prison for three years,” the Chinese Christians responded.
 
After beginning his lesson, the pastor realized he only had 15 Bibles to pass around, so seven people went without.
 
“I said, 'turn to 2 Peter 1, we are going to read it.' Just then one lady handed hers to the person next to her, and I thought ‘hmm interesting,'” he recalled.
 
As the Christians began reading, he quickly realized why she had given her Bible away: she had memorized the whole book.
 
“When it was done, I went over to her at a break and said, ‘You recited the whole chapter,’” he said. She replied, “In prison, you have much time in prison.”
 
“Don’t they confiscate the Bible?” he asked.
 
She said that while any Christian material is indeed confiscated, people smuggle in scripture written on paper and hide it from the prison guards.
 
“That’s why we memorize it as fast as we can because even though they can take the paper away, they can’t take what’s hidden in your heart,” she explained.

More often then not it is used for its intended purpose: to absorb oils between washes. Another widespread use of this product, either in aerosol or powder foam, is that it adds a nice boost to your Hair Wigs. Its design for invisible light application makes it a supremely natural looking choice for thinner Hair Style.?
