- 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
