Living the Christian Life with Beautiful Aroma

An extremely poor family who came to Christ has experienced intense persecution but also rapid spiritual maturity. The family is so poor that they live in a shelter on government-owned land and lease land to grow crops. At each harvest, they owed their landlord half of their crops and they struggled to survive. They met a pastor who told them about Christ. Eager for the hope Jesus promised, they accepted Christ as a family and began attending church, walking eight miles each way. Then the persecution started. Their landlord confiscated their land. Their neighbors prohibited them from using the village water tap. “They are alone from society,” their pastor said. However, he is impressed with their mature faith in such a short time. The family told him, “The Christian life is like a rose that blooms and spreads aroma in the midst of a thousand thorns.” The family ask for prayers that they will continue to grow, stand firm in their faith and have strength to face their difficult situation.
