Zhang's grandfather, Sun, suffered great humiliation and public disgrace for the Name of Christ. "Like a helpless lamb among wolves", he was not only taunted for his faith but eventually martyred for it.
Two terribly ill believers were determined to obey the Lord in baptism, risking their already fragile bodies in the process. The result of this obedience for both of them was total healing from their infirmities.
Zhang Rongliang, a member of the Chinese Communist Party, was arrested for attending a Christian meeting. Although he was offered freedom if he would deny Christ, he prayed and received the grace and courage to stand for Christ. In the face of inevitable suffering, he experienced the joy that comes from doing the right thing.

Christians in Zhang's village took turns to read his Bible and guarded it with their all. When Zhang got arrested, a search party was sent to his home by the local government to find his Bible. Fellow believers in his village also got detained.
On the night Zhang Rongliang was released from prison - where for years, he suffered terribly for his faith in Christ Jesus; he went straight Brother Li's house. On getting there, he found the brethren gathered and praying for his release - God had heard them; for there he was, in their midst again.
When an opportunity came for Zhang to satisfy his spiritual hunger, he endured much risk and starved himself, just so his hunger for the word could be filled.
Zhang Rongliang's Bible - a serious contraband and other documents are discovered in prison. He prays to God, asking that: "this storm be immediately calmed", and in the most unbelievable way, he recovers everything that was taken.
Wubo and Zhang had a long history of family enmity. When Zhang came out from prison, Wubo expected that Zhang will avenge all the evils Wubo had done to him in his absence. That did not happen, rather Zhang visited Wubo with gifts and shared with him the message of the love of Christ and how it led him to love his supposed enemies. Wubo accepted the Lord that day and they both became brothers in the Lord.
Zhang Rongliang rejoices that he is in prison for the name of Jesus.
Zhang Rongliang, along with several other pastors, was sentenced to three years hard labor. But they rejoiced greatly because they were imprisoned together, which caused them to sing and shout praises to the Lord.
