A soccer star has been featured in the new FIFA resource to go out with the FIFA Women’s World Cup.

 Han Duan is a Chinese soccer star who has been quoted as saying, “No matter where I go, I take the Bible along. I love to read it because there are important lessons to be learnt each day,” she adds. “I also find that the Bible is filled with wisdom and joy, instructing me on how to live meaningfully.”

The striker for the Chinese Women’s team will have her testimony printed in the gospel of Mark resource that will be used for the WWC this year.

I think this is a great sign that the church is alive and well in China. Yes, they may be underground. Yes, they may be persecuted for their faith, but they are there and the word is that they are continuing to grow and flourish in spite of it all! How awesome is that?!?!

I wonder how Americans would do if faced with the same thing???
