- Hoai-Lou Tchang
Layman catechumen against the wishes of his family; he became taking classes at the local mission in 1900 at age 57. He could not read, and had a terrible time trying to remember the prayers, but his belief was strong. When the Boxer Rebellion began, local criminals began an extortion scheme; for a fee the gang would not report Christians to the anti-Christian rebels. Huailu paid, but the Boxers came to the village anyway, captured him, and executed him for his faith. Martyr.
No matter what happens, I do love God with my whole heart. God will save my soul; it doesn’t matter that I cannot read. - Saint Huailu Zhang
