Wuhan is the Chinese city of eleven million quarantined following the coronavirus outbreak.
A Wuhan Christian describes how all the churches have become “virtual”, their ministries now run on the internet, because no one is able to visit and worship in person. People are only allowed out of their homes once every two days – and only for food.
At the same time, it is imperative to be in masks and gloves, the whole city is smelling of bleach, entrances, streets and even incoming parcels are disinfected.
“I want to talk you about the needs of believers in Wuhan. Believers call it the plague. In fact, many believers fell ill. They got sick at the beginning when it was still possible for them to attend the services. Pray for them, they are all discouraged. There is a shortage of medical masks, as well as medical personnel. Many of our brothers and sisters work there as doctors, pray for them also.”
