The Rev. and Mrs. R. Porteous were taken prisoners by Chinese

communist bandits in 1931, and led to a lonely spot on top of a hill where

they were to be executed. The leader said, “This is the place.” The

executioner took a long knife from its holder and raised it above the necks of

the courgeous couple. Certain death seemed imminent. However, instead of

cringing and begging for mercy, the couple began to sing. The bandits stared

open-mouthed as they heard this hymn.

Face to face with Christ, my Savior, Face to face-what will it be?

When with rapture I behold him, Jesus Christ who died for me.

These two were ready for death and thought that would be their last song.

But, no order was given for their execution. The executioner returned the

knife to its place, and the couple was released.
