Later on, Bob Fu lived a double life: he was a teacher in a communist school, then a preacher in an underground house church network when night comes. Fu and his wife fled China and were exiled to the US afted being tipped off that the police were about to arrest them.

- “Fu provides evidence for God’s providence and encouraged me to consider my own faith.” – Mike, Goodreads
- “Highly recommended for Christians and non Christians alike. It brought tears to my eyes and I learned a lot. You won’t be disappointed, you will be informed, rejoicing as well as saddened but it will also lift your own heart to the plight of the Chinese people and the Christian church there.” – Pepper, Amazon
- “This is an excellent book. It is a true story. In the U.S, we take our freedom, including religious freedom, for granted. In China, and other countries, they risk persecution, torture, and death in order to worship. This is a real eye-opener. We need to help in whatever way we can, especially praying.” – Dkovlak, Goodreads
