Gao Zhisheng has been an adored hero in our home for many years. Whether Gao is presently dead or alive, I do not know. He has been missing since 2017. Our prayers remain with him, hoping he is alive or is in the presence of the Lord. Our prayers also remain with his wife and children, now living in America. Lastly, Bob Fu’s loyalty and unending efforts on behalf of Gao and his family are beyond courageous.
