It is 6:30 am on a cold Sunday morning. I watch as several older ladies take their seats and start praying softly, with sincere faces and moving lips. They have come to attend the early morning worship and prayer service at the registered church in Tianjin. I watch them with admiration and think to myself how it always is the older generation that seems to be the example of diligence and faithfulness in prayer. By the time the service finishes, however, the room is filled with about 70 believers of ALL ages, collectively raising their individual voices in worship and prayer.
