The story of Anthony and Evelyn Bollback. "A report began circulating that the communists were intending to break through to Chi Kung Shan and blow up the train tunnel, thus isolating a hundred and fifty or more foreigners on the mountain top. That would be a significant bargaining chip in their struggle for power. I was appoaching my 25th birthday and Evelyn was planning a celebration. The party, however, turned out differently than either of us expected." Hardly yet able to communicate in Chinese, the Bollbacks were forced to flee China and to continue their missionary careers in Japan and Hong Kong. And always, there was the unual and unexpected. The multi-faceted ministry of Anthony and Evelyn Bollback affirms that God intervenes in the everyday affairs of those who love Him and habitually seek his guidance.^

Continuing the story of Red Runs the River, Exiles of Hope illuminates the explosive growth of the church in China following the Communist takeover in 1949 through the lives of two young people. Despite the deeply emotional struggle of Anching and Meiling, who were forcibly separated from each other by the rigors of civil war and political upheaval, it is nonetheless a story of hope. Undaunted by persecution and suffering and against all odds of ever finding each other again, they steadfastly trust in the promises of God. It is the story of the high cost of discipleship and choosing to love God above all else, and about two young people who cannot forget the love they once shared.
