Today in Christian History – April 15 (2020)

1970 – Death of Wang Liming in a communist labor camp, where she had been imprisoned on spurious evidence. When taken from her family she had declared, “I am carrying the cross of Jesus Christ.” Wang had been head of the Chinese branch of the Women’s Christian Temperance Union and active in much Christian work and in women’s causes.

The Woman’s Christian Temperance Union (WCTU) was the first mass organization among women devoted to social reform with a program that „linked the religious and the secular through concerted and far-reaching reform strategies based on applied Christianity.” It was influential in the temperance movement, and supported the 18th Amendment.
