Daily Postings

Goodbye, Dear Friend

Filed under: Daily Postings — Joshua Mountain Ministries @

August 16, 2014

Sixteen years ago Sister Dorothy and I went to China.  We met two people and the lives of the four of us were changed dramatically.  One person was Madame Xinan Zhu, the director of education for Guilin, the cultural capital of China.  The other was Lin Chuan, the commander of the Communist forces that conquered all of South China.  Madame Zhu belonged to the imperial family, the descendants of the Ming dynasty.  They lived in the imperial palace.  Her earliest memories were of her mother  bringing her to Mass every Sunday morning.  When the Communists took over the imperial palace they drove the family out into the street, where the mother and her unborn child died. The father was later killed by the Communists.  Xinan was taken over and made into a Communist and an atheist.  The educated her and gave her high positions and as director of educator had hundreds of thousands of students under her jurisdiction.   She  became a dear friend in the few hours we spent with her.  Lin Chuan was also the mayor of Shantou and built the magnificent University of Shantou in gleaming marbleized stone.  When we met the first thing he said to me was, “Our people crave for spirituality and there is nowhere we can find it in China.  We desperately need your books to be translated into Chinese because they are all about spirituality.  That man went with me every place I went, and against the advice of his assistance because of ill health, went to the airport to see me off.

When Sister Dorothy and I returned home, I contacted the people in Washington, DC who arrange for the National Prayer Breakfast every year, to invite my two Chinese friends, which they did. Lin Chuan could not make it but Xinan did.  When she arrived in Washington I picked her up and brought her to my town house in Alexandria,  Virginia, where she spent her time while in the country.  She learned much at the Prayer Breakfast and met Hillary Clinton and President Clinton  and was overwhelmed with the 4000 diplomats and heads of state from over a 100 different countries and religions, all meeting in Jesus’ name as the only viable guide to  world peace and praying for each other’s countries.  Have read Joshua While in my house she came down for breakfast one morning and said, “Last night God came to me.  It was like a dream but it was not a dream.  It was really God.  God is so beautiful. God is all love.”  Then she got teary-eyed and cut herself short.

When she went back to China, she introduced throughout her whole vast educational system, from kindergarten to graduate school and teachers college all that she had learned in Washington.  At the end of the year, the officials in Beijing called her to Beijing and told her that there was a dramatic change in her school system which was powerful.   Previously the area was ridden with crime and drug abuse.  During the past year there was not one incident of crime or drug abuse, and it had to be like a miracle.  They sent Xinan to share this with other school systems in key cities, and listed Xinan as 1 of a 100 most important and influential women in China, and had the story published in all the major publications throughout China and Hong Kong.

When she returned home to Guilin, the local Communist officials were furious because she had changed the curriculum.  The put  her in a cave and made her write all she had learned in Washington.  Then the locked her in her house and put a network of surveillances around the house and would not allow her to husband, a doctor, to go home.  He got word to Xinan that the officials had decided to kill  her, so she should try to get out of the country as soon as possible.  She contacted me and asked if I could help.  We were able to develop a plan that, thank God, worked, and she made her way to Canada.   Although there were insurmountable obstacles, which even congressmen were unable to overcome, I wrote a letter to the woman in charge of the American Embassy in Toronto pleading desperately for help and understanding.  She was kind enough to give Xinan a visa for six months and said to make sure we could get done what had to get done in those six months. We finally got political asylum for Xinan, and she has been working with people at the National Prayer Breakfast office for the past fifteen years and after she asked me if I could baptize her as a Catholic, she has touched thousands of lives by the beauty of her love of Jesus who radiates from her deeply spiritual soul.

Yesterday she informed me that she has not been well and that since her daughter and husband and two children have to go back to China where he works, she needs to be with her family, especially with the grandchildren.  My heart broke and we cried like little children and tried to say “Goodbye,” but couldn’t.   Tomorrow she leaves.  During her time here she translated JOSHUA into Chinese and is has been translating my daily messages into Chinese and making them available.  We will still work together trying to make Jesus better known throughout China.   The Joshua ministry will not be alive in China.  God works in mysterious, even if sometimes in painful ways.  Please pray for Xinan for God to protect her from any of her old enemies who may have been following her every move since she came to the United States.
